The Vitamin That Wards Off Colon Cancer

The Vitamin That Wards Off Colon Cancer

Apr 21, 2014 by

Eating fibrous fruits and vegetables can lower your risk of colon cancer and other digestive problems. And now researchers have found a vitamin that can help save your colon if fiber doesn’t do the job. A study at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University shows that niacin (vitamin B3) can be crucial for staving off colon inflammation and cancer. According to researcher Vadivel Ganapathy, probiotic bacteria in the colon feast on dietary fiber and use it to produce a compound called butyrate. Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid that activates a colon receptor called Gpr109a which controls inflammation. Activation of Gpr109a in the colon by niacin or butyrate...
Natural Ways To Relieve Stuffy Sinuses

Natural Ways To Relieve Stuffy Sinuses

Apr 18, 2014 by

Chronic sinusitis is a common health condition that affects more than 37 million people in the United States annually, particularly this time of year and into the summer season. What’s more, these numbers have skyrocketed in recent years. Equally concerning, most cases of sinus trouble may be misdiagnosed as bacterial infections, leading to an overuse (and misuse) of antibiotics. More recent data suggests, however, that sinus infections and chronic sinus problems often come from mold, other fungi, dust mites or environmental pollutants. Long-term sinus problems can be more serious beyond the pain and discomfort they produce. They can signal imbalances in other systems, specifically...
Bread Could Give You A Heart Attack

Bread Could Give You A Heart Attack

Apr 07, 2014 by

For millions of susceptible people, bread can be a deadly food, doubling their chances of a heart attack. Are you among this unlucky group? According to research at the Cleveland Clinic if you suffer from celiac, an autoimmune sensitivity to the gluten in wheat, rye and barley, eating bread puts you at serious risk for heart disease. It is estimated that about 1 percent of Americans have celiac and most don’t know they have it. That adds up to almost 3 million people who are risking cardiovascular disease by eating bread. "People with celiac disease have some persistent low-grade inflammation in the gut that can spill immune mediators into the bloodstream, which can then...
Saltwater Flush For Detox

Saltwater Flush For Detox

Apr 05, 2014 by

Some folks may debate the benefits of detoxing by cleaning out the digestive tract, but almost no one denies the necessity of defending yourself against the toxins running rampant in our contaminated environment. For my own health, I have two reliable methods for detoxing. The first is my basic, paleo diet. By eliminating processed food, I cleanse my meals and my digestive system of the troublesome chemicals food companies love to inject into addictive junk food. I also avoid grains, soy, legumes (peanuts and beans) and dairy products. Clean Feeling Of A Saltwater Flush The second detox I use is my occasional saltwater flush. It’s easy, relatively quick and very effective. Makes me...
Eliminate Constipation, Part 4

Eliminate Constipation, Part 4

Mar 31, 2014 by

Constipation can be a serious issue. To solve it and help you stay healthy, it’s important to take a deep look at bowel and body cleansing as a way to eliminate causes of constipation and the progression of chronic diseases. The Toxic Load And Constipation Connection Reversing constipation permanently can become more than just a simple fix. As I’ve pointed out previously, consuming larger quantities of dietary fiber should offer a significant long-term improvement. If fiber doesn’t reverse your constipation, there are many natural and prescription medicines to get your bowels moving. However, you may still be plagued with constipation. And unless you can cleanse your...

For A Happy Tummy And Healthy Body: Eat The Right Food Pairs

Mar 25, 2014 by

Health problems ranging from full-body illness to simple discomfort related to the foods we consume are on the rise. Part of the difficulty may originate from eating foods together that shouldn’t be eaten at the same meal. Do you combine the wrong foods? There is much debate as to the cause of the U.S. epidemic of food sensitivities, and numerous specialized diets and major lifestyle changes have developed around what we should or shouldn’t eat. But an ancient concept about how to eat may hold the answer. If you’ve given up gluten, tried paleo or gone raw or even vegan in attempts to improve your health or soothe your digestive ills to no avail, you should give the practice of...
Heal Yourself With Food

Heal Yourself With Food

Mar 25, 2014 by

March is National Nutrition Month, and with the arrival of the spring season, now is a great time to clean your diet and add momentum to your healing. The Western diet places heavy emphasis on commercial animal proteins and processed, grain-based carbohydrates that have a low nutritional value. This way of eating is often referred to as the Standard American Diet (SAD) -- a fitting acronym. In addition to drug-filled animal products and pesticide-laden produce, the SAD is often full of processed food toxins, packaging chemicals, estrogen-mimicking compounds, residual heavy metals and artificial and highly refined ingredients. Over time, this type of diet can produce a chronic...

Escape Constipation Naturally, Part 3

Mar 24, 2014 by

There are safe and effective ways to reverse constipation. Lifestyle, natural supplements and prescription medications, along with bowel/body cleansing and detoxification methods, help many people. Dietary Treatment For Constipation In 2004, it was reported that 5.3 million prescription medications were written by physicians to treat constipation. [1] There are several natural ways to reverse constipation that you should consider before taking a prescription drug for it. Let’s first look at dietary lifestyle. In January 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) came out with dietary recommendations. [2] In concept, I am quite happy that they wrote,...
Grains Are Stomach Enemy No. 1

Grains Are Stomach Enemy No. 1

Mar 22, 2014 by

If you have chronic health problems that doctors can’t solve -- things like digestive issues, various mysterious aches and pains, or skin problems that never quite vanish -- giving up grains can sometimes offer a solution. For me, giving up wheat and other grains improved my health immensely while helping me lose weight. It was my first step toward adopting the paleo diet. Giving up grains represents one of the central features of the paleo regimen. The reason: The negative consequences of grains are just too serious to ignore for anyone looking to eat healthier. Now, if you’re like me, your immune system goes a little haywire soon after you’ve swallowed something made of...

The Best Kind Of Pain-Free Revitalizing Cleanse

Mar 18, 2014 by

What do you think of when you hear the words “detox” or “cleanse”?  If you think of extreme hunger, fatigue, invasive procedures and endless trips to the bathroom, it’s likely that you or someone you know has experienced a dreaded detox crisis. Sadly, people often feel worse on a “quick-fix” cleanse, with symptoms that are aggravated rather than improved. Many believe this process to be an inevitable aspect of any detoxification program where you must temporarily feel worse before feeling better. Detox Without Side Effects In my practice, patients -- even some with advanced diseases -- successfully undergo detoxification without side effects of fatigue, hunger,...
