Your Natural Sleep Trigger
Do you have trouble getting to sleep? Or staying asleep? You’re not alone. Sleeping a solid 7 to 9 hours every night should be the most natural thing in the world. But insomnia has become an epidemic. And modern medicine does very little to help you restore natural rest. Big Pharma’s answer is to knock you out with drugs. That’s not the same as sleep. “Sleep aids” like Ambien, Lunesta, and others cause dizziness, headache, depression and anxiety. They can lead to suicidal thoughts, memory loss and hallucinations. Some people report sleep-walking, and even unconscious sleep-eating or sleep-dr...

Bacteria and your broken heart
In your screening for heart disease, I bet your doctor will never think to check your gut. And that may well be where your heart problems start. Let me explain… Your gut plays a critical role in your overall health. It’s a major part of your body’s ecosystem. It’s home to trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi. They make up your “microbiome.” Doctors are beginning to pay attention when it comes to these bacteria. But they’re still missing the big picture. This microcosm affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. Others b...
