Is Your Antacid Medication Ruining Your Gut?
Proton Pump Inhibitors are a class of Antacid Medication that are so common and considered to be so safe that they were even declassified as prescription drugs and are now available over-the-counter so that anyone can use them if they happen to have heartburn.

Salt For Adrenal Fatigue. Can it Make you Worse?
Salt for Adrenal Fatigue? Is it helpful, or can it make you worse? While there are a lot of websites out there suggesting taking sea salt for adrenal fatigue, someone recently wrote me stating that sea salt ‘stimulates’ fatigued adrenals, and therefore it’s like ‘beating a dead horse’ and that refraining from taking salt would allow the adrenals to rest. She stated that she got this information from a book entitled ‘We Want to Live’ by Aajonus Vonderplanitz. While I have not personally read the book, and am not going to comment on the book itself,  or wheth...

Fucoxanthin for Weight Loss, Can Seaweed Help you Lose Weight?
Fucoxanthin is an antioxidant that is extracted from a particular kind of seaweed called Undaria pinnatifida, more commonly known as wakame, which many of you might have tried in sushi restaurants as the green chewy salad that is served as ‘seaweed salad’. Fucoxanthin is a bright orange pigmented carotenoid, which is in the same class of antioxidant as that of carrots. Some carotenoids, like beta carotene, are also ‘precursors’ to Vitamin A, however fucoxanthin is not. Fucoxanthin may be an interesting substance, however, in that in at least one study has shown that it has a higher amount of free ra...

What Happened to Longevity Plus?
What happened to Longevity Plus? Did Longevity Plus go Out of Business? Unfortunately, Longevity Plus closed their doors and went out of business unexpectedly on Thursday January 8th with virtually no notice to their employees, and no notice to their customers or those of us who supply their products.

Is Yacon Syrup A Healthy Sweetener?
Yacon syrup is a natural vegan sweetener derived from a root that is grown in the Andes Mountains of Peru. Yacon is a food that has long been eaten by the indigenous Andeans in the same way that potatoes are eaten; it even looks much like a sweet potato, but is more closely related to chicory and Jerusalem artichoke (sunchoke) than potatoes or sweet potatoes(1). It truly is a natural sweetener that is processed in much the same way maple syrup is, so you can rest assured that it’s not a highly-processed chemical-laden artificial food. In fact, yacon syrup requires such a small amount of processing that some companies...

The Benefits of Yacon Syrup- The Healthy Sugar Substitute
There are many purported benefits of yacon syrup. From diabetic control, to weight loss, to digestive health and improved immunity, let’s find out if these claims are true. First of all, in case you didn’t read my previous post on Yacon Syrup, it’s a completely natural and minimally-processed(1) sweetener from a starchy sweet potato-like root indigenous to the Andes mountains of Peru that is often eaten raw and has a long history of use. What makes it unique is that much of its sweetness comes, not from sugars, as we traditionally think of them, but from a soluble carbohydrate fiber called Fructooligosacc...

Is Poor Nutrition the Cause of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
If you ask your dentist about the Cause of Impacted Wisdom Teeth, he’ll probably give you some vague uprovable answer about evolution making human’s jaws smaller over time, but is that really true?

Wisdom teeth, also called the Third Molars, are the furthest back teeth, erupt between the ages of about 16 and 25 years old and are the last teeth to come in. In a large percentage of the population, these third molars either come in improperly or get ‘stuck’ behind other teeth, leading to infection, pain and other ...
