5 Reasons You Absolutely Must Add Probiotics To Your Diet
One of the most overlooked aspects of healthy eating is incorporating probiotics into one's diet. The fact that probiotics are technically a form of bacteria tends to turn people off. However, there is bad bacteria and good bacteria, and probiotics are the latter. By recognizing that they are good bacteria and having a better understanding how probiotics work, you will see how useful they can be for your overall health. Here is a closer look at five of the many benefits of making probiotics a regular part of your diet. 1.

Gluten-free foods can relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome | Letters
Arwa Mahdawi (My plea for gluten tolerance, 7 September) appears to be unaware that many people requesting gluten-free foods are suffering from food intolerances. Such sufferers do not have coeliac disease, which is an example of food hypersensitivity. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is such a condition that can be much relieved by the low-Fodmap (fermentable, oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols) diet as described by Monash University, based on the work of Dr Sue Shepherd and Dr Peter Gibson.The research includes the group of poorly absorbed short-chain carbohydrates, which include lactose, fructos...

Yoga And Celiac Disease
I was diagnosed with celiac disease ("celiac") in 2012. As a result, my life changed dramatically. What I thought would be a diet change turned out to be a lifestyle change affecting every part of my life - family, social, travel, and work. My symptoms ranged from the traditional gastrointestinal symptoms to extreme fatigue, lactose intolerance, and vitamin D insufficiency. Four years later, planning and preparing meals and monitoring and managing symptoms are now a normal part of my daily life. The new normal. Celiac is a genetic, systemic autoimmune disorder caused by exposure to gluten. Gluten is a protein fo...

The Power Of The Gut
As an integrative medicine physician, I stay current with scientific research relevant to patient health in my clinical practice. Over the past two decades, I began seeing an increasing incidence of hormonal and immune dysregulations in my patients. Also, autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, and obesity began showing up in unprecedented numbers. A few years ago, I became aware of the ongoing research on the human gut microbiome. Much of the published researched explained what I was seeing in my clinical practice as linked to a disrupted gut biome. As I began applying the recommended protocols to healing the microbio...

Childhood Trauma Leads To Lifelong Chronic Illness -- So Why Isn't The Medical Community Helping Patients?
When I was twelve, I was coming home from swimming at my neighbor's dock when I saw an ambulance's flashing lights in our driveway. I still remember the asphalt burning my feet as I stood, paralyzed, and watched the paramedics take away my father. It was as if I knew those flashing lights were a harbinger that my childhood was over. At the hospital, a surgeon performed "minor" elective bowel surgery on my young dad. The surgeon made an error, and instead of my father coming home to the "welcome home" banners we'd painted, he died. The medical care system failed my father miserably. Then the medical ...

This should aim to reduce diversity between the trials and try to find a definitive answer on the effect in a specific population.

Discussion Appendicitis results from a closed loop obstruction of a blind-ending tubular structure arising from the cecum. It is a common cause of abdominal pain. It is the most frequent condition leading to emergent abdominal surgery in pediatrics. The combination of obstruction, edema, bacterial overgrowth, increased inflammatory process and increased intraluminal pressure leads to abdominal pain and possibly perforation. Appendicitis occurs in all age groups but is rare in neonates. The peak age is 6-10 years old. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory disease of the uterus, fallopian tubes and adjacent p...
