Can Probiotics Help Prevent Heart Attacks?

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  Research in the prestigious FASEB Journal suggests that the types and levels of microbes in the intestinal tract may predict a person's chances of having a heart attack. It further suggests that modifying this microbial flora may help reduce the likelihood of having a heart attack. This is a revolutionary milestone in the prevention and treatment...

Choosing the Right Probiotic

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Choosing the right probiotic is not an easy task. Few are studied in clinical trials, so it is difficult to know which ones will work best. One product, VSL #3) is considered a medical food by the FDA and has been studied in 80 clinical trials and delivers up to 900 million live microbes with a diverse combination of friendly flora that includes various...

Copper Kills 97% of ICU Bacteria

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Antimicrobial copper surfaces in ICU kill 97% of bacteria that can cause hospital-acquired infections (HAI). This translates into a 40% reduction in the risk of getting an HAI. Five percent of all hospitalizations are complicated by an HAI and this leads to more than 100,000 deaths annually in the US. Copper should be put on bed rails, tray tables, call buttons,...

Feces is a Potent Microbial Organ

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
The microflora of the GI tract is an organ at the interface of the internal and external milieu that helps us adapt to the environment in which we live. We can modify the kinds of microflora in the gut to regulate immunity, metabolic processes, risk for gut infections, C diff and candida infections, and now even the tendency to get type 2 diabetes and fatty liver....

Germy Mouths Increase Heart Attacks

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
Periodontal disease, root canals, cavitations, etc result in inflammation and can lead to heart attacks. The kind of microbes that inhabit the mouth have a powerful effect on inflammation. Peroxide, coenzyme Q10, vitamin D, and vitamin K are effective ways to resolve periodontal problems.            

Gut Microbes Control Allergic Disorders

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  An article in Nature Medicine in March of 2012 showed that changes in the commensal microbes in the gut or antibiotic treatment predispose people to systemic allergic diseases. The role of the basophil white blood cell in this process was found to be related to heightened allergic responses in the lung and to elevated levels of IgE antibodies. We...

Gut Microflora and Colon Cancer

submitted by: admin on 04/24/2014
Studies from the Wistar Institute published in April of 2014 suggest that the microbes that make up the microflora of the intestinal tract can suppress DNA repair in the cells lining the intestinal tract and lead to colorectal cancer. It is only recently that most gastroenterologists have begun to appreciate the importance of the microflora in the gut. We...

Having Too Few Gut Microbes is a Disease

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  A study published in the August issue of the journal, Nature, did a genetic analysis on the number of gut microbes in 292 Danes and found that 25% have up to 40% fewer gut bacteria and reduced bacterial diversity. This was accompanied by low grade inflammation, weakened immunity, an increase in the incidence of obesity! Decreased numbers and...

How Chocolate Reduces Risk for Heart Attacks and Strokes

submitted by: admin on 10/22/2018
Scientists from LSU Medical Center reported at the 247th National Meeting & Exposition on how the flora in the intestinal tract digest chocolate and convert its large, poorly absorbed, polyphenols that protect the heart and brain from inflammation, into smaller, more easily absorbed antioxidants. They recommend building up the gut microbes that accomplish...

Intestinal Microbes and Obesity

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
The importance and function of our gut microbial ecosystem in our body's biochemistry and physiology is discussed. The mechanism of how bacteria can drive obesity are discussed in terms of leptin and insulin sensitivity.

Intestinal Microbes Regulate Inflammation

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
  Commensal bacteria in the human intestine produce a neurotransmitter called GABA that may play a role in preventing or treating inflammatory bowel disease. Bifidobacter dentium produces large amounts of GABA that regulates pain and inflammation. GABA may reduce pain and inflammation by stimulating the GABA receptor sites on nerve cells in the brain...

Live Blood Cell Analysis with Beverly Rubik

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013
  Mainstream medicine looks at blood under a microscope after the cells have been dried and stained. It is possible to examine blood in the living state using a dark field microscope at 10,000 power. Both approaches offer different kinds of information and both are important. We can learn about coagulation, detoxification, fat content, evidence of heavy...

Microbes in the Gut Determine the Risk for Cancer

submitted by: admin on 11/21/2013
An article published in the journal of the American Society for Microbiology called mBio showed that both inflammation and a certain microbiome contribute to the development of colon cancer in mice.  Researchers transferred a stool sample from mice with colon cancer to germ-free mice and found that the incidence of colon cancer double that when compared...

Preview of Probiotics: Why They Are Important

submitted by: admin on 04/13/2024
The definition, function, and importance of probiotics are reviewed. The ecosystem of the intestinal tract is composed of at least a thousand different species of microbes. It is easy to disturb this sensitive and complex balance that can lead to important effects on our digestion and absorption of nutrients, our immunity, and overall wellness.

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...

Probiotics for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
Most cases of IBS are associated with an imbalance of the microbes in the gut. Correcting this imbalance with natural microbes has a profound effect on symptoms and recovery. This is a cornerstone of effective treatment.

Resistant Microbes Found in Half of Infected Patient Rooms

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
Multidrug resistant microbes such as acinetobacker baumannii, MRSA, C. diff, and vancomycin resistant enterococcus are found in 50% of infected patients rooms up to 2 months later!

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...
