Celiac Awareness Month

Each year, May is Celiac Awareness month. One out of every 133 Americans has celiac disease (about three million), yet 95% of those with the disease remain undiagnosed, according to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. What is Celiac Disease? Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by consuming a protein called gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye.

Oral Hygiene and the Health of the Body

Years ago, a physician who suspected a patient had heart disease would probably not refer him to a gum specialist. The same holds true for diabetes and arthritis. Times have changed. The past 5 to 10 years have seen a growing body of research linking the health of your mouth to the overall health of your body. According to the American Dental Association, 40 percent of people with gum disease also have a chronic health condition. What’s feeding the link?

What's the Deal with Fermented Foods?

Power Up Your Gut with Fermented Foods Fermented foods may be setting a trend lately, but these nutrient-potent foods have been around for thousands of years in Japanese, Chinese, Indian, and German cultures. For people living without modern medicine and refrigeration, fermentation was a simple means of food preservation and a way to imbue foods with the health-enhancing properties of the live bacteria the gut needs to stay in balance. Fermented foods are a potent source of probiotics, which research has shown are essential to powering up the mucosal immune system in your digestive tract and producing antibodies to pathogens. Both are key to helping you maintain vibrant health. Why probiotics are so important You may not even realize just how many fermented foods you already enjoy in...


Power of Probiotics

Body Defenders With 80% of your immune system located in your gut, having balanced intestinal flora is a major factor in defending your body against disease. Balanced gastrointestinal (GI) flora is critical to the functioning of the immune system, synthesis of nutrients, and detoxification. Balanced GI flora is also necessary for regular and normal bowel movements. Flora imbalances can be caused by poor diet, illness, use of antibiotics, and stress. Symptoms can include persistent gas, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea. To maintain or rebalance GI flora, consider adding probiotics to your diet. Probiotics are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to the beneficial microorganisms naturally found in your GI tract. The most common probiotic bacteria come from two groups, lactobacillus or bifidobacterium, although many other...
