How Chronic Inflammation Is A Problem For Your Brain
It's amazing how the gut and brain are connected. If the brain is unhealthy what are the factors that affect gut health? Brain fog is a common one.
When we begin to look at the term "brain fog", and what specifically it is, it's important to note where it comes from, and how it's created.
Are We Feeding Ourselves Sickness?
What's the issue with GMO food nutrition? More and more foods are deemed unhealthy. Can we say that processed foods are an experiment that has failed?
It's my believe that eating altered or GMO foods can actually be starving our bodies and be moving forward towards making us sicker society. This movement towards producing a perfect food is actually the tip of the iceberg with the majority of information being unknown and below the surface when we're trying to understand how the altering and tampering of foods might be useful to our bodies.
Toxic Cell Damage
How exactly do free radicals affect the body? In order to address that, we should probably ask how free radicals are formed and can that be reduced?
As long as people put unhealthy things in their bodies, it's important to look at why oxidative stress is damaging our bodies due to how prevalent things called free radicals are in our system. Our path to better health has been lost to us in many different ways and we are now living the sum of our actions blind to the effects these free radicals have on our system.
Physical Activity Hydration And Health
How exactly does hydration work? What is the correlation between hydration and it's health benefits and can you get a lot of hydration from foods ?
After we are born, it's been estimated that ¾ of our body is made up of water. Science shows that as we become older, the content of the water in our bodies could inevitably be as low as ½. Why? Our cells lose water as we age and our well being is decided by using our cellular’s potential to maintain water.
Improve Your Standard Of Healthy Living
Where do you begin a journey to better health? If you know now is the time to start your path to health, how do you start a health and fitness journey?
Once that decision has been made, a more in-depth question should be what part of your health should you focus upon in order to achieve better health? I believe a starting point for everyone to actually begin that journey with a priority focusing on your gut health. The first step is actually to start taking a note of how you feel, not only immediately after eating but also the next day and the next day. Because foods play a predominate role in those feelings, whether you know it or not.
The Secret Of Nature Vs. Nurture
Do you have strong gut bacteria? When it comes to the genetic makeup of that bacteria, does nature or nurture play a bigger role in it's health? These questions can be answered by looking at our intestinal fitness and intestine microbiome from a nature versus nurture aspect to determine which has the bigger and more effect.
The composition of the microbiome differs from person to person, with each one having a different bacterial makeup. For a long time, it's been thought that this variability finds its origins in our variations in our genes. This is the nature component of it.
How Flies Can Help Us Understand Our Health
Think outside the box when it comes to a quick way to lengthen your life. Are there really any unique ways to increase our lifespan? How about we look at how flies can do exactly that. Sure, you heard me. Taking a deeper look at flies can assist us to develop a higher understand our very own microbiome.
Fruit flies have a median life span of about forty days if they are not eaten quicker via a hungry animal looking for food. After doing a bit of research, I found when scientists fed the flies a mixture of probiotics and an natural supplement called Triphala, they were able to lengthen the lifestyles of the flies by as many as 26 days. The flies had a decreased risk of degenerative issues (for a fly) including extended insulin resistance and infection. The amazing part about it was those outcomes happened because of the completely altered composition of the microbiota affected by the the probiotics, which are living bacteria in their own right.
Gut Health And Cancer
How is it possible to draw a correlation between gut health and cancer treatment? Once you break it down, is it possible to look at the similar characteristics with cancer cells and immune cells?
When it comes to cancer and curing it, let's look outside the box as to why our intestine bacteria can play a dominant function in most cancers immunotherapies, and why it's the brand new frontier of fighting this ailment.
Cancer immunotherapies activate the immune device to attack the tumor. The final results of the therapy varies not only because everyone is completely in terms of how they respond to environmental factors, but the bugs residing on your gut are crucial in determining whether the therapy will be a hit-or-miss.

Testosterone And Sex Drive
Is it ok to ask some of you why do you have low sex drive? In today's day and age, it's common to hear about testosterone and low libido on the radio, television, from friends, and on billboards. Is it really that big of an issue, or is the hype just a way to sell more drugs and supplements?
We all should be looking at how to increase sex drive and testosterone naturally regardless of how low or high it might be. Have you ever wondered why you might have a low sex drive? What causes a decrease or lack-of sexual interest?
