Adding Proton Pump Inhibitors to NSAIDs

submitted by: admin on 05/08/2015
NSAIDs cause ulcers and proton pump inhibitors help prevent them. Why not combine them? Novel thought, but how wise is this? A clinical trial was done over a 30 day period that showed that GI bleeding was substantially reduced by this combination. There are many problems with this kind of reasoning. First, most people aren't on NSAIDs for only 30 days...

Antibiotics and the GI Tract

submitted by: admin on 05/13/2015
This is an extensive review of what antibiotics do to the microflora of the GI tract. Many MDs overuse antibiotics "just to be sure" that a bacteria may be causing symptoms; this is very dangerous thinking. It is common knowledge that antibiotics are massively overused in treating colds, flus, ear infections, etc. Yeast syndromes, leaky gut syndrome,...

Foods That Cause Arthritis

submitted by: admin on 01/20/2019
There are a lot of myths about food inducing arthritis...or are they? One of the best kept secrets in medicine is the leaky gut syndrome. In this situation the pores of the small intesting are too big and they let large molecules that normally cannot traverse this membrane come across and into the body. Because 60% + of all our immune cells are located in this...

Gut Microflora Regulate Immunity

submitted by: admin on 03/31/2015
  A study from the Mayo Clinic published in the PloS ONE in June of 2012 showed that the gut microflora regulate the immune system and may be directly related to autoimmune disorders such as ulcerative colitis, and diabetes. In fact, the gut microbiome may be used as a biomarker for this predisposition and it may be possible to prevent autoimmune diseases...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Leaky Gut Syndrome

submitted by: admin on 08/21/2016
Leaky gut syndrome is well described and studied in the mainstream medical literature, but mainstream GI doctors have ignored it. The physiology, pathology, and immune aspects of this condition are explained. It is involved with a wide range of autoimmune conditions and treatment is generally fairly effective and affordable.          

NSAIDs Lethal in Heart Attack Survivors

submitted by: admin on 10/12/2013
  An article in Circulation posted in September of 2012 showed that NSAIDs after a heart attack cause a 60% increase in mortality and 40% increase in risk for heart attack. They also increase the risk for heart attack in people without a history of heart attack. It is shocking that the FDA allows them as prescription medication and even more outrageous...

Preview: Autoimmunity

submitted by: admin on 01/20/2019
There is an epidemic of autoimmune diseases that include hay fever, asthma, diabetes, collagen vascular diseases, and hypothyroidism. The causes of this epidemic range from heavy metal toxicity to drugs and environmental toxins. Our immune system attacks our tissues and we use drugs to suppress our immune system. There are other options for treatment that relate...

Probiotics and Allergies

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
The role of the digestive health in allergic conditions is not appreciated in mainstream medicine. The mechanism of how this works is explained with particular attention to the normal microbes that reside in the human gut. They direct the immune system to react or not react to what we are exposed to in our environment. The effects of antibiotics on the gut microflora...

Stress, the GI Tract, and Immunity

submitted by: admin on 10/16/2013
The effects of stress on immunity has been studied and shows that it even affects the number and types of microbes that can survive in the human GI tract. Probiotics have a lot to do with digestion, synthesis of vitamins such as vitamin K, B5, B6 and biotin, stimulation of immunity, and regulation of immunity. Many scientists consider the stool in the gut an...

The Importance of Digestion with Dr. Richard Kunin

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
One of the best kept secrets of medicine is the role of the digestive tract and its relationship to our immune system.  The so called Leaky Gut Syndrome; the fact that there's a lot of immune cells in the digestive tract called the Galt system, probably 60 -70 percent of all our immune cells are in the digestive tract.  The role of the intestinal...

The Menopause Cure with Ellen Cutler

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
The reason why women experience menopause is far more than hormone fluctuations. Over-consumption of carbohydrates is what Dr. Cutler believes is the underlying cause of menopausal symptoms. Taking a digestive enzyme and avoiding grains has helped her patients. She contends that grains cannot be digested and an autoimmune reaction develops that leads to symptoms...

What is Your Intestinal Bacterial Type

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
An individual's intestinal bacteria flora falls into certain patterns that are independent of nationality, gender, and age according to a 2011 article in the journal, Nature. They believe that the composition of the GI microflora is a new biological fingerprint, just as our blood type or tissue type.  We depend on our GI microflora to metabolize...

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
  IBS is very common but poorly understood. Symptoms are described. Drugs control symptoms but never deal with the underlying cause. The nature of the microbial ecosystem is very important because their metabolic products affect our physiology. The role of the microbial ecosystem and of intestinal permeability are reviewed.

Why Milk Can Cause Ulcerative Colitis

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
Milk fats can initiate immune dysfunction that can lead to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Concentrated milk fat caused mice to develop IBD at three times the rate (60%) that mice fed a low fat diet or a diet with polyunsaturated fats. IBD correlated with the emergence of a bacteria called Bilophila wadsworthia from nearly undetectable levels to about 6% of...
