(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) Roughly 5.8 million Americans over age 65 live with Alzheimer’s disease – and the number is expected to soar over the next three decades. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that cases will reach 13.8 million by the year 2050.
While natural health experts have long insisted that there is a link between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease, Western medical authorities tended to ignore or downplay the connection. Now, a bombshell British study supports evidence that aluminum contributes to the development of Alzheimer’s disease – and even explores the exact molecular interaction of aluminum on proteins that trigger the disease.
(NaturalHealth365) If you’re one of those individuals who craves a cup of coffee or tea before starting your day, great news: your morning brew just got a lot healthier. At least, that’s what scientists at the National University of Singapore are hoping to accomplish – with the help of some friendly microbes.
(NaturalHealth365) Eating healthy foods can prevent early death and reduce the incidence of chronic disease – a fact most of us can easily get behind. But given all the marketing and nutrition philosophies out there – from the vegan diet to the keto diet -what’s less clear is which “healthy foods” should make it onto our weekly grocery list.
(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.
(NaturalHealth365) Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis are serious conditions, with the Centers for Disease Control reporting that the disorders claim over 41,000 lives per year. But there is hope that emerging data can change this bleak figure – researchers say that when it comes to a dangerous complication of liver disease that affects the brain, probiotics can play a lifesaving role.
(NaturalHealth365) We sometimes use the words “gut instinct” to refer to a deeply held belief or powerful impulse – without fully realizing just how appropriate that phrase is. Researchers are beginning to recognize the immense power of the gut microbiome (the community of bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract) to protect against disease, regulate metabolism and even influence mood and outlook.
