4-5% Americans will develop this sometime in their lifetime
150K will be diagnosed this year and 50K will pass from it
410 diagnosis from this every single day
800% more in Americans as compared to India
African Americans compared with Native Africans have 65 times greater risk
So what is this deadly and famous assassin?????? It’s colon cancer. It can slip in silently and leave devastation behind. Well we’ve covered the bad news, now I want to share some good news. It is highly preventable and there are some easy ways to keep this from claiming our lives or someone that we love. Please watch the below video as Chuck Carroll interviews Gut health expert Dr. Will Bulsiewicz on 5 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer.
In Summary the 5 Ways to Prevent Colon Cancer and that you can start doing today:
Get a colonoscopy done those age 45 years or older (in most cases) and repeat according to your doctor’s recommendation. If every eligible person were to do this, it has been said to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer by 90%. Don’t wait until you have symptoms!!!! Be about prevention and do a colonoscopy. If you have a family history of colorectal cancer, it may be recommended to get this procedure done sooner.
Get rid of red meat and processed ”meat” in your diet. Red and processed meat has been linked to the development of carcinogens in our microbiome. Also Dr. Bulsiewicz explains that the heme iron in these meats causes an inflammatory reaction. When we cook these meats, they form other carcinogens as well. Dr. Bulsiewicz also goes on to explain in this interview that WHO (the World Health Organization) discovered that the risk of developing colorectal cancer is increased with consumption of read meat and processed meat and as a result they were labeled as carcinogens. Now keep in mind that this does not mean that there is no risk with white meats.
Plant based diet: There was found to be a statistically significant reduction in colorectal cancer incidence among vegetarians in a study called the Adventist 2 Study, a very large population of Seventh Day Adventists in California.
Eat more fiber: Fiber is consumed and in the colon is where our microbiome is able to be fed. In-turn, the fiber is transformed to short-chain fatty acids. There is a direct mechanism linked to shutting down precancerous cells (apoptosis). It is explained in this interview also that with increase in fiber, you decrease the cancer risk.
Get more tumeric (from the phytochemical curcumin) in your diet: get more of this in your diet to receive more cancer fighting power!!! Tumeric has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent over centuries. It’s been shown to decrease the number of polyps by 60% and the size of them by 50% in a specific high risk population who have FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis). You can take it as a tea and adding a pinch of black pepper will increase the bioavailability by 2,000 %. This is a powerful combination.
Now on the flip side, what if you or a loved one are diagnosed with colorectal cancer? Is all hope lost? What other helpful information is available and is being discovered daily that if combined with modern day medicine and treatment will increase the likelihood of survival? Please take a look at the below video about a fascinating story of a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with stage 3 borderline stage 4 colorectal cancer and how he overcame it to no cancer in 4 months!!! Interview of Fred Evrard by Dr. Eric Berg.
I hope that this will help to prevent colorectal cancer in a lot of people and please spread the word, share the post and the videos by these professionals. I think seeing testimonies like this lend credibility to the healing power of The Most High and what He has naturally given us to stomp out disease and even prevent it. Coupled with the advancements in medicine and technology, if we’re willing to make healthy changes in our lives, surely we can achieve longevity and in good health.

Annually, 15 million people worldwide suffer a stroke. Of these, 5 million die and another 5 million are left permanently disabled, placing a burden on family and community. Stroke is uncommon in people under 40 years; when it does occur, the main cause is high blood pressure. However, stroke also occurs in about 8% of children with sickle cell disease.
WHO EMRO (World Health Organization Regional Office for the Mediterranean)
Of course, the best thing to do would be to maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid the occurrence of a stroke. The most modifiable influences are tobacco use and high blood pressure. It’s estimated that 4/10 people that suffer from a stroke that the incident could have been prevented by regulation of blood pressure. There are two types of stroke; ischemic (where blood vessels are blocked by clots, fatty deposits called plaque, or other particles, thus cutting off oxygen to the brain) and non-ischemic/hemorrhagic (a weak blood vessel bursts and bleeds into the brain).
So what can we do to help someone if we suspect they are having a stroke? First of all, know the signs of a stroke.
Loss of facial or limb function (most of the time only one side)
See the below video by Dr. Eric Berg for more details.
In Dr. Berg’s video he shares a great acronym: FAST
Face: If you ask them to smile, one side of the face may droop.
Arm: Ask them to raise both arms (one may drop).
Speak: Ask them to repeat a phrase a few times (may not be able to or speech may be slurred). I may also add that their speech may be incoherent.
Time: there is a short 3-4 hour window to get the individual to the hospital so they can receive anti-clotting medication to restore the blood flow and oxygen to the brain.
CALL FOR FIRST RESPONDERS ASAP!!!
If you feel after this quick assessment that the person you are with could be having a stroke, immediately call 911 (U.S.) or 100 (Israel). Time counts! Do not hesitate to call for first responders! As stated above, there is a window of 3-4 hours, every minute counts. Taking aspirin is not recommended because all strokes are not due to clotting and if it is a non-ischemic stroke (hemorrhagic) it can cause more bleeding in the brain.
How can we prevent a stroke? A healthy diet, regular exercise, avoiding smoking and a healthy blood pressure level all can make a world of difference. Here are some diet tips:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: particularly DHA is great for brain protection and repair. It’s great for just normal brain function for adults and helps developing brains for infants even in the womb. It’s been shown to correlate with improved learning ability as well. It also protects against clotting.
Garlic: great for decreasing blood pressure and overall detox and nutrients
Vitamin E: (tocopherol version are the best for the anti-oxidant benefits, prevents free-radicals and especially great for the brain due to the oxygen demand)
Green leafy vegetables: (high in potassium- this helps in lowering blood pressure, supports the blood vessels, prevents clotting)
Ketones: (the brain loves ketones and a keto-genic diet/low carbs is healthier overall because it helps to prevent insulin resistance and clotting)
Intermittent Fasting: (helps the body to repair and eat up all of the toxins, old proteins, supports the lining of the arteries)
Omega 3 rich in DHA
I hope that this will not cause you stress but only help you to be more prepared and be able to help someone if the worst should occur such as an incident like this. Also to spread the word to family and friends to help prevent such an incident.

It has been said that edible oil has reached the height of being a $100 billion industry. In the 1880s the extraction process for corn oil was invented from the by-product corn germ, which was routinely disposed of. Close to the turn of the century in 1898, corn oil was introduced as a cooking oil and sales went through the roof. Along came Crisco (crystallized cottonseed oil), canola, walnut, soybean oil, rapeseed, as well as sunflower oil. So why are these oils so toxic as opposed to olive oil, coconut oil and butter?
Well it turns out that the process of extracting these oils via heating and just the oils sitting on the shelf in the light causes oxidation to occur. This changes the structure of the oil or fat. All of these poly-unsaturated fats/oils undergo this process. So why is oxidation bad? Basically oxidation causes death to cells. You can see it when certain foods are left sitting out and the color changes and the smell of them is undesirable, such as meat, fresh fruits and vegetables. The same can be said as when metal rusts. Well it turns out that the more easily our cells are to oxidize, the easier it is for us to quickly age or even die. A diet high in these poly-unsaturated oils or fats make our cells easier to break down or die. A diet high in fats or oils harder to breakdown such as the saturated oils like butter, olive oil and coconut oil help with longevity as they are much less susceptible to oxidation.
In 1961 the AHA recommended the switch from saturated fats like butter or those found in animal fats to poly-unsaturated fats like vegetable oils to prevent heart attack and stroke; however, this was not based on any sound evidence. There was no correlation before this with rates of heart attack and stroke and use of animal fats! It was just a way to use by-products plus make food, if you could call it that, more readily available (processed) and cheap.
Yeah, the fact that the public could be manipulated like this on such a mass scale had that affect on me too. No sound evidence, as a matter of fact the AHA and other so-called scientists were able to promote and implement this change for decades….and just now light is being shed on the falsity of it all.
So I began this post with my title concerning what’s starving our mitochondria, the powerhouses of our cells. We use food and oxygen to make ATP that powers the body. Enter in the culprit linoleic acid (LA/poly-unsaturated fat/oil) or Omega-6. This is the main make up of these poly-unsaturated fats. These poly-unsaturated fats damage the mitochondria. A chain reaction occurs and a part of our mitochondria called the cardiolipin is affected. Thus, these poly-unsaturated fats are strongly linked to diabetes, heart disease, inflammatory complications, Alzheimer and aging and it’s becoming more clear as research continues. Oleic acid on the other hand, is the main make up of saturated fats/oils such as the good ones like butter and olive oil. The more of the linoleic acid our bodies are made up of correlates with a shorter lifespan.
Some may bring up the notion that high cholesterol is the culprit but that I will save for another post. There are many clinical trials that have been done but a lot of the data has not been shared in it’s entirety, leading us for many years to believe the statements made by the AHA as well as the government.
So in Summary:
*If you must fry your food, fry with butter or coconut oil
*Avoid us of polyunsaturated oils/fats such as those high in linoleic acid (i.e. vegetable oils- corn, canola, walnut, soybean, rapeseed, sunflower). Even unheated they still are not healthy. They have already gone through heating, bleaching and acid washing before they reach our dinner tables
*Avoid processed foods because these are usually full of poly-unsaturated fats (those made of mainly linoleic acid)
I leave you with a great summary video of what I have posted today. I hope you will investigate this issue more and find a healthy alternative to poly-unsaturated fats/oils that you can use instead.

Preparing our homes and minds for Pesach can be overwhelming because usually there is so much to be done and in such a busy society with work, family and other obligations, it leaves little time to complete these much needed tasks. Once again I find myself in a situation in which there is less than a week to go and I feel that I’m not close enough to my goal of finishing as I’d wished. Well don’t panic, hopefully this will help you as it helped me as I recently reprioritized my work:
Removal of Chametz & Cleaning
Prioritize your cleaning. Take heed to what we are commanded to do: Exodus 12:14-17
14 “This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the The Most High—a lasting ordinance. 15 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. 16 On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat; that is all you may do. 17 “Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.
We usually take this time to do what we call ”Spring Cleaning” but what’s of the utmost importance is getting the chametz out of our dwellings. All items that are not marked ”kosher for passover” or that consist of chametz/leaven/yeast should be disposed of and removed out of our dwellings. If we keep the plan simple, it’s not as overwhelming.
My simplified checklist for cleaning beginning 2-3 weeks prior to Passover:
All bedrooms weeks before: move furniture from walls, take down and wash any window treatments/decor, clean all hanging art/items and free-standing items (example: lamps), clean light fixtures or ceiling fans, clean air conditioner units and if need change out the air conditioning unit filters. Clean all mirrors. It’s also a good time to clear out your closet, dressers and end tables of unused or unneeded items. At least the week before be careful to isolate all eating to your kitchen to ensure you are not carrying chametz all throughout the home.
Shared spaces: Living room, laundry room, other shared rooms- same routine as bedrooms except when there is furniture like sofas or a cushioned chair, remove the cushions or pillows and use a brush to get all chametz, even turning over the furniture to thoroughly check. Bookshelves, cabinets and all items should be cleaned, dusted off. In the laundry room it’s good to get inside of your washing machine and give it a good wipe down to make sure no hidden mold/mildew is missed. Again, at least the week before begin to isolate all eating to your kitchen.
It’s worth buying a new welcome mat, especially at this time of year.
Windows, shutters, blinds….etc.- I always save until the week before due to a dust storm that usually hits Israel right before Passover.
Painting: It’s great to refresh your house inside with a new coat of paint if time permits. Nothing to go crazy about. Minimum clean white walls with a mild diluted bleach cleaner or colored walls with a mild detergent safe for walls for a nice fresh look.
Cleaning & Kashering the KITCHEN & DINING ROOM: most likely this is going to take the bulk of the work because of the food items that are forbidden to be in our homes during the 7 days. General cleaning out of non-food cabinets/storage can be done weeks before. The week of I begin bringing out the food items that are chametz and isolating them to a box in the kitchen. I use whatever can be used from the box or the fridge days leading up to Passover. In all homes observing Passover a Bedikat Chametz or Check for Chametz the night of the 14th of the Hebrew month of Nisan should be done. Being careful not to buy any new food items that have chametz/not kosher for Passover is imperative the last days leading up to Passover.
Imperative to wash down and clean out all items from your food-containing cabinets, refrigerator or freezer, pantry, or other food-containing storage spots. Of course remove the food items before cleaning. Disassembling the shelves and drawers of fridge is a must.
Stove-top & oven- use an oven cleaner and make sure to read the directions. Gloves are usually required in order to protect your hands. If you have a self-cleaning oven this helps but I would still clean it. Disassemble the stove top and use a degreaser and oven cleaner to get it thoroughly clean.
Backsplash, tables, chairs, cabinet surfaces, counter-tops, walls- give all a good cleaning
Dishwasher- don’t forget to do a wash cycle on this and make sure to let it dry inside
Pots, pans, cooking utensils, blenders, crock pots, etc.- It’s great to have a set-apart set of all of these just for Passover. Some people buy a new set every year and throw the old one out or give it away. Some use one time use/disposable items. At some point you should thoroughly clean the ones that you know have been used for chametz. Boiling all items that can be boiled is also a great way to remove chametz.
Buy new cleaning sponges, mops, broom heads for use before and after kashering the home.
Clean your trash cans or buy new.
Mop your floors thoroughly. Vacuum carpeting thoroughly. If you own expensive rugs it’s worth sending them to the dry cleaner.
Again, keeping in mind where we started above with Exodus 12:14-17, so as not to drive ourselves crazy. We are commanded to not have chametz in our dwellings and not eat it at this time.
This is also a time to reflect spiritually
This time of year is not just about what we are forbidden to eat and to have in our homes. We should do some inner reflection about how we are not to be puffed up and how we should consistently seek humility, meekness and gratitude, therefore removing the leaven from our spiritual homes.
My fave food items and dishes that are Kosher for Passover (Pesach) & helpful link:
Chametz (also spelled “hametz” or “chometz”) is any food product made from wheat, barley, rye, oats or spelt that has come into contact with water and been allowed to ferment and “rise.”
In practice, just about anything made from these grains—other than Passover matzah, which is carefully controlled to avoid leavening—is to be considered chametz. This includes flour (even before it is mixed with water), cake, cookies, pasta, breads, and items that have chametz as an ingredient, like malt.
Since we eat unleavened bread, make use of your matzot by making home-made pizzas, lasagna and quiche. Also the matzot make great snacks when you spread chocolate on them (just don’t over do it). This is my main food shopping list for Passover, although not every item that I buy:
Plenty of Eggs- boiled eggs, omelets and quiche (with crust made from matzot) are great meal options.
Matzot- yes you can make your own but why risk it….best to buy it with the Kosher for Passover symbol
Coconut (make sure marked Kosher for Passover)- makes a great sub for flour in dessert recipes like cakes and cookies, a good item to include in a breakfast dish.
Nuts- a variety of nuts are a great source of protein. They can be used in a variety of dishes or just eaten as is.
Potato flour if you just can’t stand not to have any flour in your diet is a great sub for regular flour.
Olives and pickles with the Kosher for Passover symbol (usually in olive oil)
Frozen veggies such as green beans, cauliflower, broccoli
Cabbage, Lettuce, a small piece of horse radish
Chicken, fish, turkey from a source you know holding a kosher certification
Any oils and seasonings (of course ensuring Kosher for Passover).
Parveh Ice Cream kosher for passover
Kosher for Passover Wine and Juice
Remember that this is a festival and to be joyful. Set a great Passover table with a fresh look! Enjoy the season while reflecting on how we can all be better in the year to come.

Coriander has multiple and powerful health benefits. It’s an excellent source of dietary fiber, iron, manganese, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
Although not my focus at this time, just know that the leaves are very healthy as well, rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K and protein. They contain very small amounts of phosphorous, calcium, thiamin, potassium, niacin and carotene.
Consider the mention of this potent little seed in the Scriptures:
The Children of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and tasted like wafers made with honey. Exodus 16:31
The manna was like coriander seed and looked like resin. 8 The people went around gathering it, and then ground it in a hand mill or crushed it in a mortar. They cooked it in a pot or made it into loaves. And it tasted like something made with olive oil. 9 When the dew settled on the camp at night, the manna also came down. Numbers 11:7-9
(Take into account the meaning of manna in Hebrew: food which according to the Scriptures was supplied by a miracle to the Children of Israel in the wilderness; it can also mean a usually sudden and unexpected source of pleasure or gain).
Watch this video for a quick summary of the Top10 Health Benefits of Coriander Seedsposted by YouTuber, Sky world:
How to incorporate Coriander Seeds into our diets:
There are many ways to incorporate this nutritious food into our diets. You can purchase your seeds from a health food store. Make sure the seeds are organic.
My favorite way to use it is as a tea with other foods such as ginger and lemon sweetened just slightly with honey. Boil the 1/2 teaspoon in a cup of filtered drinking water, let steep 5 minutes, drink and enjoy.
First and foremost, roast the seeds over low heat about 5 minutes then grind it into a powder, the finer the better. The heat releases the oils and aroma.
Store the powder in a cool and dry place.
You can use about 1/2 teaspoon of the powder daily to a few times a day in a tea with honey and lemon, sprinkled over savory meals, in a smoothie or yogurt, soups, gravy or whatever food you would like.
For making a much more potent tea, although the prep time is longer, the benefits are much more profound than using it as mentioned above. When time permits, I like to make it in the manner seen in the video below by YouTuber Aasai Rasai Recipes, except I add fresh ginger as well as powder ginger to it with a tablespoon of tumeric. 😋. Sweeten with honey or your favorite natural sweetener as desired. You can scale your proportions up or down for the amount you want to make.
I’d love to hear how you use Coriander seeds or leaves and what your experience is with this potent little superfood that the Most High has blessed us with.

I don’t know very many people that would deny that radiofrequency radiation from any source is a health hazard; to what degree is arguable because it has been difficult to get the funding and give a voice to those who are doing the independent research that it takes to make the mainstream healthcare, scientific, manufacturer and governmental organizations pay attention and make immediate changes to make safer products and make our environment as safe as possible.
So why is this a health risk for us:
higher risk of brain and other types of cancers
lower sperm counts
you may encounter changes in your nervous system, brain and metabolism
fetal developmental changes may result as well
Although this video is a bit dated, it is still very relevant and the research base is sound. Dr. Devra Davis is an expert on electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and other wireless transmitting devices. She outlines in this video the evolution of the cell phone and smartphone as well as the hazards and includes a bit about other devices as well. The visuals in this video were quite unsettling to me. Please take a look.
So how to we reduce our exposure to these hazardous radiofrequencies? See the list below by Dr. Devra Davis’ lecture and the below video from “Environmental Working Group (EWG) and please share this information with everyone you know, love and care for. Also to see the latest research visit: www.ewg.org/cellphone-radiation

Eggs have been one of the food substances at the center of controversy for at least the last few decades. Are they healthy for us? Is there a cholesterol issue? What nutritional value to they bring to the table? How many should we eat per day without it being unhealthy? Well I want to dive into this subject and shed some light on the answers to at least some of these questions.
Let’s first watch this video by Dr. Eric Berg, a physician who has been very dedicated to study foods and how to best use them as disease prevention and to keep at optimum health naturally.
Let’s now look at the nutritional value as well as the benefits of eggs:
First of all it’s preferred to eat eggs from hens or chickens organic, pasture raised and fed with organic grains such as barley(not corn or soy fed/gmo)
Choline from eggs is essential to our diets. Most people do not get enough in their daily intake. It’s found in meats, eggs and certain vegetables. Choline regulates crucial bodily functions such as forming cell membranes and helps our neurons (brain cells) to communicate. It may even improve memory and cognitive function and reduce the risk of ischemic stroke. The recommended daily intake is 125-550 mg per day
Eggs contain multiple B vitamins, especially B12 which is highly important in helping to keep our blood and nerve cells healthy and helps to make our DNA, the genetic material in all of our cells. Vitamin B12 also helps in the prevention of megaloblastic anemia.
It also contains vitamin A, D, Iron, Folate, Riboflavin and vitamin E. Although not a lot of calcium (2%) you will receive at least some from one egg.
Eggs help with satiety as well and are very keto diet friendly!
Eggs can be used on the skin to fight wrinkles, for the nails to help strengthen them
HDL (the healthy cholesterol) is also increased by eggs and the LDL (unhealthy cholesterol) is not increased. This has been very controversial for many years.
It’s a very versatile food item. Take my egg salad that we have every Shabbat for example, as pictured in the feature pic of this post. It’s full of vitamins and minerals from the eggs as well as the hummus, brewer’s yeast, seasonings like turmeric, black pepper, cumin, parsley, cilantro, and an assortment of chopped fresh veggies. Quiche is another great recipe with eggs at the center of the dish.
I hope eggs will be something that you will consider incorporating into your diet if you have not already been enjoying this tasty and versatile little food item that is so beneficial! Feel free to comment on this post by sharing your ideas on how you eat your eggs or any helpful recipes.

On our journey to become healthier, of course, I have been concentrating a lot on food and nutrition, however, have you ever thought about the combination of the foods that you eat or even the order in which you eat your food? Some years back, a very wise friend told me that some of the things we eat in our modern culture and the order in which we eat them in can lead to a slow death. Sad to say, it took a while for me to begin seriously researching this, but it stuck with me over the years.
I had a thought recently💭; could there be a health advantage to serving meals in courses? For example, a five course meal would consist of soup/hors d’oeuvre, followed by an appetizer, then salad, main course and last dessert. Meals can feature even up to 12 courses (now that’s overkill). This concept would definitely assist us in separating various foods that have no advantage to being ingested together and could even be harmful to our health. Take a look at this short video below from “Health Hacks” to see what I’m referring to:
Some points to remember:
1-Drink your water 10 minutes before your meal. Avoid drinking juice with meals altogether. Your body’s effectiveness in digesting foods will be impaired because your stomach enzymes become diluted.
2-Avoid fruit and meat together. The protein will detain the fruit in the digestive system instead of passing through quickly as it normally would and it will ferment.
3– Avoid Yogurt with fresh fruit: if you love yogurt, eat unflavored yogurt without color at room temperature and enjoy it with cinnamon, raisins and honey. The bacteria in yogurt will act on the sugar in various fruits. This results in toxins in your system. These toxins can cause all sorts of allergies and symptoms of allergies.
4– Cereal with milk and orange juice- Milk and an acid together such as orange juice will curdle the dairy and destroys the enzyme found in the starchy cereal. Space these foods out by at least one hour. Hemp and Oat Milk are great alternatives to cow milk. Also avoid lemon and milk (see below video).
5-Banana and milk- This combo will not sit well in your stomach…you’ll have a heavy feeling. Another opportunity to sub in oat or another plant-based milk.
6– Tomatoes/fruits & Pasta, fruits and starchy foods, and meat/protein plus carbs: fruits digest easily but carbs like pasta, rice, etc. take a while to break down. Fruits can get delayed in the digestive tract and ferment when they would otherwise pass through and be digested quicker. Along these same lines anything with sugar combined with protein- sugar can act on the protein digesting enzymes, thus, reducing the enzymes’ performance. As a result, food can take a very long time to digest.
7-See Dr. Berg’s video below on the process of Protein +Sugar/Refined Carbs = AGE’s or Fat + Sugar/Refined Carbs = AGE’s (AGE’s are Advanced Glycation End Products as a result of combining these foods, especially heating them up….cooked or in the body). Listen to these tips:
Another short video below about other food-food combos to avoid and food-medication combos to avoid from YouTuber “Keto Diet Plan AZ”.
I have no doubt that all of us have some degree of undigested food in our intestinal tracts 🤢, but the healthier we eat, intaking the right foods and in the right combinations and proper order, the cleaner and healthier our digestive tracts will be. We will begin to develop a healthy microbiome. Our elimination will also become more regular. Almost every time we eat a meal we should expect to eliminate. We also must keep in mind to eat to live and not live to eat. The proper portion size is key to maintaining a healthy weight as well. DON’T EAT UNTIL YOU’RE STUFFED! Let’s keep learning together how to turn back the clock naturally and live longer!💪🏿

Many of us have probably heard of or are using probiotics. Probiotics are microorganisms introduced into the body for their beneficial qualities at a specialized dose. It’s actually a Greek word meaning for life. Usually they are organisms from the lactobacillus or bifidobacterium family. They come in the form of powders, pills and capsules. We ingest these microbes live and they make their way down into the intestines where they battle to become a part of the occupants on the lining of our intestines. They then can fight our harmful bacteria by releasing substances that go against them. Probiotics can also prevent the release of toxins from harmful bacteria in our gut. They can even help to regulate our immune systems. The acids that the probiotics make promote good bacteria and inhibit inflammatory bacteria. They break down the undigestible fibers that we eat to make short chain fatty acids (which is literally the micro-poop of the bacteria). Our gut then uses these short chain fatty acids as energy for the cells of our intestines. This then gives off chemical signals that build the intestinal barrier and reduce inflammation.
Who Should Use Probiotics:
Definitely if you are put on a course of broad spectrum antibiotics and to prevent antibiotic associated diarrhea. While antibiotics cure infection, they wipe out also the good bacteria in our gutt that helps to keep the microbial system in balance.
If you suffer from bacterial vaginosis
It has been shown to be beneficial in recurrent abdominal pain in children of no known origin
Research is growing in the areas of Gestational Diabetes and Ulcerative Colitis.
To optimize wellness and gutt health it can also be used but if you are immunocompromised or critically ill this may not be such a good idea for you.
So what about PREbiotics? What’s the difference?
Prebiotics are compounds in food that induce the growth or activity of beneficial microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. Prebiotics are a group of nutrients that are broken down by gut microorganisms. Here is just a starter list of prebiotics found in these fibrous and easily accessible foods such as:
Most of all, cut down as much as possible on routine eating of processed foods of any kind. Meats, carbs, etc. Prebiotics comes from whole and nutritious foods. 🙌🍎🍌🥬🧄🧅
Amazingly, there has been recent research to show that THERE IS A MICROBIOME IN YOUR BRAIN!!!! 🧠These are the same bacteria found in our guts. Dave Asprey, author of the book ”Super Human” says that people that age well and live long have way more diversity of bacteria in their guts. He also speaks about intermittent fasting and how it helps to promote a healthy gut lining and a specific type of bacteria. This bacteria is responsible for keeping inflammation down in our guts and eats & refreshes the mucus in our guts. We must eat the correct foods to make this healthy and NOT EAT sometimes….i.e., intermittent fasting.
