What exactly is an appendix? One of the most misunderstood parts of our body is understanding the use of an appendix, and is the appendix useful.

We all know that probiotics are beneficial for gut health, but are they beneficial to eliminate constipation? The best way probiotics can help digestive problems is by helping to resolve the issues associated with a slow-moving digestive tract.
In this video blog episode, I use the illustration of a cup of muddy water, a stream of water, and a glass can give you a great example of why constipation can be helped with probiotics. And for most people who eat a standard american diet, probiotics can only help improve digestion and eliminate waste in the body.

If you want to be at your healthiest, your nutrition will fail if you don't do this. In fact, most health professionals have it all wrong when telling you what you should and shouldn't do to be healthy.
In this video blog episode, I address what I think to be the most misunderstood part of health. Being healthy is overrated because it should be completely natural in what we have to do to reach our health goals.
Note: Thanks for watching this episode. I hope you learned a bit on why I believe you can succeed at being healthy simply by adding things to your health plan as opposed to eliminating things your trainer says to eliminate.

Can food combinations and how you combine foods on your plate improve your overall health? Is your gut health affected by those same food combinations? The Vlog episode attempts to explain the reasons why the order of digestion of foods can indicate whether some will have gas, bloating, and indigestion. If you imagine 3 participants in a race, they will all finish at different times. But imagine if, regardless of how quickly they finished the race, they would all have to wait at the finish line until all were ready to cross the finish line.
Your digestion is the same. Foods digest differently, and those "waiting periods" can give many people problems. Therefore, the food combinations and proper food combining is crucial for weight loss, obtaining valuable nutrients like proteins, and our overall health.

I'm sure you are curious to know what are enzymes or what do probiotics do in our bodies? What is the best way to describe probiotics and digestive enzymes? Many people confuse them and believe that probiotics and enzymes are the same, but it's important to know the distinction and the roles they play to strengthen our immune system.
In this video blog episode, I use an illustration of a scissors and toothbrush bristles to better explain what probiotics and digestive enzymes help us, and if we need to even know what an enzyme is.
Note: Thanks for watching the video, and I hope you learned a bit about how the immune system is supported by probiotics and enzymes.

When it comes to eating liver or other organ meats, there are many different opinions about how does liver taste, why we should eat it because it's nutritious, or who should not eat liver.
But in this video I shot with my son, we prepare a meal of liver and onions together to find out what liver tastes like and if it is good. (I'll apologize for my son's video skills.... it's always a work in progress with children). :-)
Note: Thanks for watching the video (and hopefully you watched it with subtitles). There are some definite health benefits of eating liver. Ultimately, the question of whether you should eat liver comes down to a philosophical belief or whether you think people are "bad" for eating organ meats because he and I definitely made it quite tasty.

Even saying the words "rotten foods" conjures up images of mold, bacteria, horrible odors, and potential sickness. But did you know there is actually a good side to those mounds of foods that have begun to exemplify the traits of the local garbage dump?
Our body actually respond to foods just like those refuse centers. It takes in the foods (via food consumption) and begins to decompose it (via chewing and swallowing) until it can no be broken down. So technically, we have a substantial amount of "rotted foods" in various stages of decomposition in our body at any given time. And that's where probiotics come in to play.
In this 3 minute video from SciShow, it's explained how the living bacteria found in our body can actually help us to pre-digest (or begin decomposition) the foods we eat.
jHere's my take on the video. As it explains, we need a significant amount of good bacteria in our gut and digestive system to properly break down foods so that we can obtain the nutrients from them.
An often overlooked component of probiotics is that without them, it would be very difficult for our body to be healthy and properly eliminate food waste from our bodies. Without these good bacteria, our body would become one large garbage dump full of toxic waste, sludge, trash, and non-recyclable trash.

While driving down the road, I had an epiphany as to why there seems to be such an alarming rate the amount of issues my friends seems to be having with weight gain as they age. Then I realized that there is a direct correlation between this one man-made ingredient and the inevitable pooches and pudginess many get as they reach 30 and above. In my recent video blog, I discuss why this product is so bad for you, really and mention what food companies don't really want you to know.

How many times have you ever had a long day outside or spent a couple hours at the gym only to realize that you smell like a zoo animal. You know, the kind of smell where you can only imagine what other people might think if they get too close.
But if you've followed me for any length of time, you probably realize that body odor is directly related to the bacterial make up of your body. Bad bacteria that you release by sweating can then be trapped on your skin and continue to create an unhealthy environment. And an unhealthy environment means unhealthy consequences.
In my latest video blog, I give a 3 minute explanation of why improving your gut balance will go a long way towards improving your smell both before and after a long sweaty at the gym.
Bonus: The first step you can do to improve your odorific situation is to break your foods down better in your body. You can download a free eBook on what I believe plays the most important role in ensuring the best digestion of the healthy foods you eat. (Click here to get your free copy).

Can a doctor make you sick? Many times, we hear a bit of health information from the television or newscast and immediately think, "Yea, that will work. That's what I need." But taking that approach more often than not, may steer us in the wrong direction to better health. In my latest video, I delve into the psychology of why there is a fascination with television doctors. It's important to question the information the medical profession as to whether it applies to you and how you can become your own citizen scientist.
