Is Bone Broth Good for You?

Bone broth is rich in a wide array of highly absorbable nutrients like glycine, arginine, proline, chondroitin, glucosomine, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. It has been consumed by our ancestors for millions of years and is very popular in the Paleo community and many other diet philosophies, because it supposedly can help heal and seal your gut, oppose inflammation, encourage healthy digestion, support the immune system and inhibit infection by microbes, reduce joint pain and inflammation, promote strong and healthy bones, hair and nail growth and a more balanced nervous system.

Candida, SIBO and H. pylori

Candida, SIBO or H. pylori (helicobacter pylori) may occur alone, but they frequently exist in conjunction with one another or one leads to the other at some point.

SIBO 101: A Comprehensive Guide to Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

SIBO 101: A Guide to Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

When overgrowth of bacteria occurs in the small intestine, it is called SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), and it may have negative effects on both the structure and function of the small intestine that can result in a wide array of disruptive physiological and psychological symptoms. The small bowel typically does not contain very much bacteria, so it should not be present there in large numbers. It houses less than 10,000 organisms per milliliter of fluid, compared to 1000,000,000 per milliliter fluid in the large colon, and the bacteria in the small bowel are different from those that inhabit the large intestine. Most bacteria in the small intestine is L. acidophilus. We have bacteria throughout the entire digestive tract from mouth to anus, but most of it resides in the colon. (more…)

When creating your Individualized Paleo Plan or deciding which healing remedies to utilize, your body should be used as your guide. This can be confusing for many people in the beginning, because, as we all know, there is more than one inner voice and it can be difficult to know which one to listen to, if you can’t recognize the one that belongs to your body.
