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).
When it comes to your gut health, there is a constant battle of good bacteria fighting bad bacteria. It seems obvious, but the best way to have a healthy gut is to have more good than bad.
In this episode of The Mental Minute, I explain the process of how you go about getting all of the good, healthy bacteria in your body so that it outnumbers and keeps the bad bacteria at bay. After listening to the episode, you'll better understand whether bad bacteria is stronger than good bacteria.

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.

It seems there is no more of a toxic word in American lexicon than that of the word, "Vaccinations". It's important to note this post is not taking a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine stance. It's simply to look at it from a non-linear perspective and completely from a digestive standpoint.⠀
So let's first ask the question, "What is a vaccine?" A vaccine is when you inject a bacterial or virus in your body so that your body responds by creating the proper antibodies in your immune system. The thought is that by creating the antibodies in response to the vaccine, the body would be better able to "defend" itself form the virus. That's the idea of how a vaccine should and would work in "normal" situations. ⠀
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.
