Indigestion could Lead to Cancer & Other Illnesses

October 13, 2009

Nearly every health concern from cancer to ulcers can be traced back to your digestive system. Whether it’s the obvious problems that come with indigestion such as bloating, heartburn, gas, irregularity or more serious immune issues, it all comes down to what’s going on inside your gut. Not only is your digestive system responsible for breaking down foods and sending critical nutrients into your bloodstream, it’s also where most of your immune system resides.

Everything entering your mouth or nose can reach the GI tract. So everything we breathe, eat, or drink creates a potential invasion into our internal environment. If pathogens survive the trip through the acids and enzymes of the upper part of the GI tract, they find the perfect permanent home in the colon. As a result, the colon is often the seat of many chronic problems. When you take into account many of our society’s current habits, it’s easy to understand how pathogenic bacteria can easily gain a strong foothold right there in your gut.

For instance, we now consume less fiber and more refined carbohydrates than at any other time in history. Both of these habits slow bowel transit time (allowing toxins to sit in your body for far too long) and help provide fuel for harmful bacteria strains. On top of that, excessive use of antibiotics and NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anit-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen) has become widespread, which throw off the delicate balance of good, necessary bacteria in your gut.

It’s no wonder that most people in this country complain about no energy and are constantly sick. Their imbalanced colons support colonies of pathogenic bacteria, which are constantly spewing toxins into their system. Their immune system is in a constant fight just trying to keep things under control.

Now for the good news, It’s not that hard to turn all this around enjoy comfortable digestion, and get your immune system armed and ready for any invasion. It all comes down to balancing the bacterial flora in your gut. There is no doubt that proper digestion, absorption, elimination, and immune response; all dependent on bacterial flora; must be maintained if you want to remain healthy. Every day, groups of individuals are exposed to the same pathogens; but not everyone gets sick. A strong immune system response determines your ability to fend off premature aging, sickness, and disease. And a strong immune system requires the proper flora in the bowels.

That’s surprisingly simple to achieveQ By eating certain types of foods, you can feed your body the healthy, good bacteria it needs to keep your immune system strong and your digestive system running well. You can also do a Natural Colon Cleanse to clear out the bad bacteria in your digestive tract, intestines and colon.

It’s baffling why conventional medicine hasn’t been able to grasp or accept this concept. Obviously, the pharmaceutical companies stand to make a lot more money selling antibiotics and other medications than recommending a daily dose of fruit or vegetables.

With impending digestive threats all around you, you should take every precautionary measure to boost your immune system and keep your GI tract clear in order to ensure optimal health. 

Protecting Yourself Against Cold Viruses & the Flu

October 6, 2009

Your defense against the flu is only as strong as the state of your immune system. Get all the flu shots you like; but if your immune system isn’t prepared, you’ll still be vulnerable to the flu.

Take every step necessary to strengthen your immune system. Try a natural immune system booster to help you stay well, they can also help you bounce back when you’re laid low.

During this season that puts us in contact with so many people while socializing or shopping, it’s inevitable that many people are going to come down with the flu or another virus that causes colds and digestive “bugs” which are easily passed around.

There are three natural agents; Vitamin C, Grapefruit Seed Extract, and Olive Leaf Extract that might also help provide protection against colds and the flu or be useful as treatments once the virus has set in. 

At the fist sign of muscle aches, sore throat, coughing or any other symptoms of flu (or cold, or other infections), you should take a large dose of vitamin C 2,500-3,000mg, and then follow that with 1,000 mg (one gram) every hour until symptoms recede.

Sometimes the vitamin C alone will do the trick, but when more is needed, Olive Leaf Extract and Grapefruit Seed Extract may be added. Olive Leaf Extract is simple to work with, as its concentration is not a problem. 500-1000 milligrams every few hours, with or without the Vitamin C, depending on the situation.

Normally, for straight oral use, the Vitamin C and Olive Leaf Extract are a great pair by themselves (the Olive Leaf Extract lowers the needed amount of vitamin C, which can get into very high amounts for a serious flu attack). As for Grapefruit Seed Extract, the full-strength liquid is very bitter and must be diluted. It comes in different forms available, such as throat spray, ear drops, topical, etc. Extensive research has been conducted on the antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties of this amazing effects of Grapefruit Seed Extract.

There are also other natural remedies to help increase your immunity and help you fight off colds and the flu. Proteolytic Enzymes may also help with the flu.  Adding some acidophilus culture (also called probiotics) to the mix, during and for a few days after the use of Olive Leaf Extract.

Olive Leaf Extract is such a good antibacterial that it can also kill the ‘good guy’ bacteria that we need in our gastrointestinal (GI) tracts. A capsule or so of acidophilus (probiotics) before meals should be adequate insurance for keeping these beneficial organisms established.

With all the rush and deadline pressure that comes with the holidays, we often forget to take the time to maintain optimum immune system health. Please follow the few simple items below to ensure you at your healthiest this Holiday Season:
