Antibiotics Don't Work On Viruses
A large reason why I enjoy and have a passion for gut health is because for many, it is a new frontier to look at how to become healthy. Looking at your digestion and microbiome is something "out-of-the-ordinary" and not your typical, "eat broccoli, exercise, get sleep" mantra that you see all over social media. This different approach compelled me to talk about antibiotics. ⠀
Let's start out by saying you're a mayor of a small town, enjoying life and everything is going great. Then let's pretend there are a rash of burglaries at some resident's homes. How would you react and what would you do as mayor? The first step would be get the police to investigate and talk to neighbors that might have seen something, the key word being "investigate". But what would happen if you unilaterally decided to throw everyone in your town in jail? ⠀(To continue reading, listen to, or download the podcast, follow the link).
What happens to your body when you have an allergic reaction?
What happens when you have an allergic reaction to anything? What specifically is your body doing when it has an allergy to antibiotics like pencillin or foods like peanuts?
In this episode of The Mental Minute, I explain what happens to your body internally when it responds negatively to an inflammatory response like allergies. As a way to explain it, I use an illustration of filling a cup of coffee with cream to explain types of allergies and the responses they create.

The bottom line of living a productive lifestyle is answering the daily question of how to achieve wellness and optimal health? Based on more and more research and lack of progress, we are beginning to see that pharmaceuticals don't work and nutrition can assist our bodies health.
In today's episode of The Mental Minute, I explain a bit about how have bacteria evolved resistance to antibiotics. This is important because pharmaceutical drug prescriptions are becoming more of the go-to to better health by the media today. But there is a better way, and it's how we can go back to a more natural lifestyle.

Probiotics Reduce Inflammation
If you believe in probiotics, you've probably wondered "When's the best time to take probiotics?" or "What are the best probiotics to take?" Before you address that, let's look at the truth. Getting into the best physical, mental, and emotional shape takes planning, education, and research. More specifically, it begins with better gut and digestive health. Probiotics are the key, but knowing what the best sources of probiotics to take or which natural sources of probiotics will benefit you long term is JUST as important as taking it themselves. Where do you begin to learn which probiotics are important to your health? To continue reading, listen t,o, or download this podcast, follow the link.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
