Your Health Detective: Intestinal Health

The liver is a vital organ of detoxification which requires proper care to maintain its health-enhancing functions. Liver damage and disorder is in epidemic proportions mostly because of an unhealthy diet, being overweight, excessive alcohol consummation and most medications.

The tamarind fruit is very effective in preventing and treating liver disorders. Consumed at least five out of seven days it will improve your liver health and protect it from damages.

This fruit detoxifies our body, eliminates toxins from our organism, boosts metabolism and digestion, and improves cardiovascular and digestive functions…

  Skin Care Begins from the Inside-Out 

Many skin disorders and premature aging are the outward manifestation of a body attempting to reduce its overall internal toxic burden as a result of accumulated by-products from multiple sources. What most people forget is that our skin is the largest organ of absorption and elimination – what goes on the skin goes into the body, as well as what’s inside manifests outside.

Auto-intoxication – The Road to Beautiful Skin is Paved with Good Intestines!

Since we now know scientifically that over 70% of our immune system is based in our gut, if intestinal health is compromised so is our skin. Our intestinal tract, specifically the large intestine (colon), is our personal “toxic waste chemical processing” receptacle – consisting of two main pipelines (pathways) through which toxins flow. Those toxic substances, manufactured within the colon, affect the entire body when transported from the colon into the liver via the hepatic portal vein. And, if they “leak” out of a damaged intestinal wall create a condition known as leaky gut syndrome – when proteins and toxins begin to leach out of the intestinal lining into the bloodstream, overloading the liver as it attempts to neutralize the toxins. It is remarkable that this five-foot long cavity, with its toxic contents, can be so close to the bloodstream without causing even more trouble – the intestinal wall is no thicker than that of your eyelid…CLICK to continue reading…

The following is a summary of the findings reported at the annual meeting of the Society of Neuroscience: 

  • Gut bacteria are possibly working at more than keeping our bodies healthy – they may be actually changing our minds.
  • Recent studies report how living bacteria in the gut can alter the way our brain works.
  • The scientific question asked after recent studies is, “can we soothe our brains by cultivating our gut bacteria”?
  • By adjusting the gut’s bacterial intestinal terrain, scientists have been able to change the behavior of lab animals and, in smaller numbers to date, in people.
  • Scientists, by altering intestinal microbes have turned anxious mice bold, and shy mice social. Rats inoculated with bacteria from depressed people developed signs of depression.
  • Smaller studies of people suggest that eating specific kinds of bacteria may change brain activity and ease anxiety/panic. This is believed to be effective because gut bacteria can make the very chemicals that brain cells use to communicate…Click to continue reading…

What You Should Know…

  • Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. When it comes to understanding all the fuss about gluten, it pays to know the differences between the conditions connected to it. There’s celiac disease, wheat allergy, and/or gluten sensitivity, and keratosis pilaris (chicken skin).
  • Great confusion exists around oats – do they or do they not contain gluten? According to the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center, oats are technically naturally gluten-free since they are not a type of wheat, barley or rye grain; those three groups of whole grains naturally contain the protein gluten. Oats, however, do not contain gluten but rather a protein called avenins. Many that must avoid gluten get sabotaged when eating oats because most brands are cross-contaminated with small amounts of grains that do contain gluten. If you eat oats and symptoms manifest, it best to avoid them or find a brand certified organic and certified gluten-free…CLICK to continue reading…

Penning’s from IWR Press…Launching Fresh Voices of Natural Health

Why are we beginning this article introduction about an eBook with a discussion about food when this book is about headaches? Because what we consume affects every biological function within our body, including food ingredients known to cause headaches – specifically migraines, tension headaches and allergic responses.

For the first time in the history of human existence, we are choosing to eat things that are NOT FOOD – and our bodies and diminishing quality of life show it!

The thing that bugs me is that the people think the FDA is protecting them – it isn’t. What the FDA is doing, and what the public thinks it is doing, is as different as night and day.

When working with clients who are victims of emotional imbalances that include, but are limited to, anxiety, panic, and depression, we work together to help them balance Wholistically: body, mind and spirit.

Science has demonstrated the importance of cultivating a healthy intestinal ecology known as the – microbiota – those health-enhancing microorganisms in our digestive health – critical inhabitants   to achieve wellness.  

Research has now validated that the bacteria in your gut can directly affect your behavior, emotions and everything from the ability to lose excess weight to our immune responses. This might be surprising for many, however it’s a critical, and often overlooked factor in treating anxiety. Healing and restoring balance to one’s digestive tract, ideally with the help of a nutritionally-aware health professional like a certified Wholistic Rejuvenist practitioner, can make a huge difference in alleviating symptoms and overcoming imbalances…

Since one of my specialties is counseling clients regarding intestinal disorders, specifically colon health, an interesting subject arose recently that set me to wondering how many of us really know the history of toilet paper…so…the health detective in me went to work and here it is, your chuckle for the day…

Yes, as hard to believe as it may be for those of you that know me personally, I did camp as a kid with my parents and grandparents. Anyone who’s done so knows that necessity is the mother of invention and things like dry leaves, twigs and rags come in handy when toilet paper (T.P.) is not readily available or when the “urge” hits and you’re in the wilderness.

The global choices and customs of cleaning, well, you know where, may surprise you.
