(NaturalHealth365) Kimchi – a mix of fermented, spiced vegetables that features cabbage as a key ingredient – is a traditional Korean specialty with a long history of culinary and medicinal use. In fact, experts say that people have been enjoying the benefits of kimchi for over 3,000 years!
(NaturalHealth365) Research confirms what natural health experts have insisted for years: that the gut microbiome – the community of bacteria in the intestinal tract – plays a vital role in health. Researchers say imbalances in this microbial community – alternatively known as dysbiosis – can trigger a laundry list of unwanted health conditions, including increased risk of obesity, autism, “leaky gut,” and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
(NaturalHealth365) Probiotics are foods that help build the population of healthy bacteria in the gut. Why is this so important to human health? Because poor digestive health leads to a wide range of health issues from allergies to many forms of cancer.
Your body’s immune system and its role in cancer prevention really doesn’t get the attention it deserves in the prevailing paradigm of allopathic medicine. You’d be hard-pressed to find a conventional doctor or medical expert
Your body’s immune system and its role in cancer prevention really doesn’t get the attention it deserves in the prevailing paradigm of allopathic medicine.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a conventional doctor or medical expert who’s willing or knowledgeable enough to talk about natural immunity in the context of keeping your body free of cancer. At least not to the full extent of its true capacity.
And yet this information is vitally important. In fact, it just might be the most overlooked facet of cancer prevention that’s not being talked about by the conventional medical system today.
Assuming you’re getting all the nutrients you need from food and supplements (and your body is effectively flushing waste and toxins as it’s supposed to), your immune system should be fully equipped on its own to naturally thwart cancer from ever taking hold.
So why isn’t this the case for the tens of thousands of Americans who are diagnosed with cancer every year? The answer could lie in an underestimated component of your immune system that’s only just beginning to break the mainstream mold of thinking on this imperative issue: gut microflora.
(NaturalHealth365) Never has improving gut health, the immune system, and other aspects of our well-being been more important. And while some powers-that-be would rather us focus all our efforts on vaccines and disinfectants, many people naturally think that protecting our health has to start with eating healthier foods – like kimchi, for instance.
(NaturalHealth365) There is nothing particularly attractive or healthful-sounding about the phrase “gut bacteria.” In fact, one could say it sounds fairly unappealing! (Unless you understood what we’ll tell you today.)
In truth, gut bacteria – the thriving community composed of trillions of microbes in the digestive tract – just might be the best friend your body never knew it had.
(Natural News) Fermented foods like yogurt and kimchi are popular health foods. While many studies have found that they offer plenty of health benefits, the science behind how they do so is not well-understood. →
(NaturalHealth365) Do you eat probiotic-rich foods? These microorganisms – found in fermented foods and supplements – offer a wide range of health benefits. At a fundamental level, they help to restore a healthy balance of friendly bacteria in your gut. But, the really good news is what happens next. →
(Natural News) The human stomach, the saliva, and the large and small intestines are like a rain forest, teeming with more than five thousand living species of bacteria. These bacteria cellsoutnumber human cells 10:1. Every moment of every day, several trillion bacteria cells interact with one another and coordinate vital functions inside the body. Together, these bacterium regulate the gastrointestinal tract and create metabolites for proper digestion and hormone regulation. They help eliminate waste and protect the blood from toxins. They respond to outside threats and initiate immune responses.
