Sugar Alcohols Best Avoided To Protect Gut Health

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist

sugar alcohols best avoided

The growing diabetes epidemic has spawned a whole new industry of alternative sweeteners called sugar alcohols that consumers view as healthy because they are not artificial like aspartame. These products with low glycemic indexes are aggressively marketed to the overweight and those with insulin problems as ideal sugar substitutes because they are derived from natural plant based sources.

These sugar alcohols, also known as polyols, are interestingly comprised of neither sugar nor alcohol. The most familiar of these are xylitol, erythritol, mannitol, and sorbitol.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Cure Cancer with Measles

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist

measles cures cancer

In 2007, I gave a lecture at an international nutritional conference where I discussed how repression of acute and infectious disease and its symptoms can be a catalyst for chronic, degenerative diseases to take hold like asthma and cancer later on.

For example, when the body “gives up” and a person stops experiencing acute illness even as simple as the common cold, which has a powerful detoxifying effect on the entire physiology, the stage is set for chronic illness. A typical scenario for many cancer patients is that they have not had a cold in years. My Father, who is a retired Geriatrician, used to see this in his practice. One story he tells is of a patient who came in for a physical who hadn’t been sick in years and seemed outwardly to be fine. Tests showed that he had cancer everywhere.

When the body has become too weak to respond to acute illness or generate a good, strong fever in response to an invading pathogen, the toxins build up without any release and the inevitable result is chronic disease sometimes very serious in nature.

Here are some other examples of how repression of acute or infectious disease is simply playing a game of whack-a-mole with degenerative disease just popping up instead:

By Michelle Goldstein, Mental Health Therapist

Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is a safe, effective and inexpensive medication which has been shown to be effective in treating an incredibly wide range of illnesses, particularly those that are autoimmune in nature.

Due it its safety as well as efficacy, it has gained acceptance even among many holistic health practitioners.

The targeted diseases which have shown improvement with low dose naltrexone treatment include multiple sclerosis, a wide range of cancers, AIDS, and neurological and nervous system problems of all kinds. The use of low dose naltrexone by alternative physicians has grown exponentially since it was first discovered by Dr. Bernard Bihari in 1985.

Several research studies now support the efficacy of LDN treatment, long reported in successful case studies by integrative doctors.

Here’s what you need to know in order to determine if low dose naltrexone might be helpful for you or a loved one suffering from one or more autoimmune diseases.

How Prebiotics Benefit Gut Health

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist

benefits of prebioticsThe term prebiotics is a relatively new term relating to the topic of gut health. The concept first came on the scene in 1995 when beneficial food ingredients that pass undigested through the stomach and intestines were first identified.

Researchers were shocked to learn that these undigested foods actually served as nourishment for the probiotics in the gut, those beneficial microbes that perform useful biological functions and are a critical component of a healthy immune system.
