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.

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.

Number seven, there's a link between autism and fewer strains of good bacteria in your gut. People with autism generally have digestive related issues, whether it's leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, or as I mentioned, fewer bacteria strains.
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.

In my recent podcast, I try to dispel a few myths as to why cholesterol is our friend, and how we can use it to benefit our bodies. To listen or download this podcast, follow the link.
