Microbes help produce serotonin in gut
Although serotonin is well known as a brain neurotransmitter, it is estimated that 90 percent of the body's serotonin is made in the digestive tract. In fact, altered levels of this peripheral serotonin has been linked to diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. New research shows that certain bacteria in the gut are important for the production of peripheral serotonin. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Treating the Root Cause of IBS: Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth
Rosie is a 30-year-old banker with very long work hours who came to see me with symptoms of gas, bloating and constipation. She had stomach cramps after eating, stubborn acne and a weight gain of 10 pounds in the last couple years despite a good diet and exercising regularly. A visit to a gastroenterologist had yielded the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) after testing that included an endoscopy, a colonoscopy, blood work, and an MRI -- all of which were essentially normal. Rosie's doctor prescribed Amitiza, a drug typically given for constipation, which caused her nausea and abdominal pain. She stopped taking i...

Obesity and Food Addiction: It's Not About Willpower
While it's nationally recognized that we are in the midst of an "obesity epidemic," our response remains gravely inadequate. Imagine handling the ebola epidemic by saying to those who contracted the disease, "Try harder not to get sick." Despite what our culture, exercise and diet industries would have us believe, there's growing evidence that combatting obesity is not about willpower. And while our society is indeed structured to make lack of exercise an easy default, and high-calorie, low-nutrition products ever-present, the fact is that people are addicted to food in a way that is killing them.

How The Body Maintains A Healthy Balance Of 'Friendly' Gut Bacteria
Hippocrates once said, "Bad digestion is the root of all evil." Now, a growing body of research suggests that the ancient Greek physician was, if a bit hyperbolic, seriously onto something: Maintaining a healthy balance of "good" gut bacteria in the digestive tract is critical to overall health and well-being. Disturbances in the gut microbiome -- a collection of trillions of bacteria and other microbes -- are often present in patients for a number of seemingly unrelated diseases. For example, some research shows that up to nine out of 10 people with an autism spectrum disorder also have inflammatory ...

If you throw your back out or break your leg, you'll immediately experience the reality shift that comes with significant physical limitation.

The Belly: The Last Taboo For Women's Bodies
Last May, Marie Claire ran the following headline: "Butts are in." Meanwhile, according to September's issue of Vogue, "We have officially entered the age of big butts." All this is somewhat ironic, coming from fashion magazines whose pages are hopelessly empty of big behinds. It's no surprise that critics have pointed out -- and rightfully so -- that people like big butts, and they've always had success in Black and Latino culture, even if Vogue is apparently the last to know. But it's true that butts, and by extension, thighs, are enjoying the limelight in today's media. They're celebrated pretty muc...

What's Your Upside
On July 23, my husband took me downtown for our first date night in many, many months. As you may know, I have celiac disease, and as a result, I find it challenging to eat in restaurants due to being excruciatingly sensitive to gluten cross-contamination. But we went to a restaurant that specialized in gluten-free food, and even has a separate prep kitchen! Total score, right? Well... not exactly. I didn't learn this until the next day, but it turns out that while they prep and cook the food on dedicated equipment (so far so good), once it's cooked, they transfer it to dishes that they also serve gluten on.
