Leaky Gut Syndrome Bone Broth

Could healing your gut also heal your disease?

In our article “Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases Caused by a Leaky Gut?” we described how a leaky gut happens, what diseases it causes, and what to avoid to keep your gut healthy. “Refined flours and highly processed foods are really hard on the epithelial lining of the gut. High glycemic index foods, dairy products, and gluten are damaging. High chronic caffeine use, excessive alcohol consumption, and overuse of antibiotics are bad for the epithelial lining. All of these things weaken the bonds between the cells letting particles escape.

Setting the Record Straight Part 2: Are My Vitamins Full of GMOs?

January 21st, 2014

Vitamins and Supplements GMO

Should GMO vitamins be labeled as such?

How Can I Be Sure that my Vitamin Doesn’t Contain GMOs?

Legally and logically speaking, purity requirements for vitamins are exactly the same whether they are produced chemically or biologically. On a chemical level, there can be nothing, not even a partial strand of DNA or a molecule of anything other than the molecule that is your desired product. For example, vitamin C is called “ascorbic acid”. Its chemical structure is “C6H8O6”. No matter how it is produced, it cannot be anything but C6H8O6 as a final product. It is a molecule. It is a molecular chemical structure that is identical to every other chemical structure of the same name, whether it came from an orange, a piece of lettuce, or a piece of candy. The use of GMOs, corn, soy, chemicals, or anything in the production phase is irrelevant if you end up with a chemically pure and viable vitamin C, C6H8O6, molecule.

Vitamins without GMOs

Do your vitamins contain GMOs? Is this a bad thing?

The Health Concerns of GMO Use

Problems arise from genetically modified organism consumption when crops produce proteins that help them weather cold, become poisonous to certain insects, or produce higher yields. The health effects of these extra proteins on humans include producing insecticides in our own bodies, sometimes years after the GMO food is consumed. Food allergies come about when the immune system recognizes a protein as an invader. Someone who isn’t allergic to organically grown soy can be allergic to GMO soy because of the extra proteins that it contains. Many GMO foods contain chemicals that suppress bacteria formation, extending the shelf-life of food. These anti-bacterial proteins can reproduce in the lining of human intestines, killing off many beneficial bacteria, sometimes for years.

Neurological Vitamins

Are all of your Neurological Symptoms Being Caused by an Underlying Vitamin Deficiency?

Part 2: Why Vitamin D May or May Not Be Helping You

Before you begin, you may want to read Part 1 of this series by clicking here.

I’m Already Taking Medication for my Neurological Problems.

Most neurological disorders are treated with medications that alter the amounts of different hormones that are used by the body. Your doctor may prescribe a drug that increases serotonin absorption, for example. The problem with these medications is that they don’t fix the root of the problem. Over long treatment periods, they can cause the body to make less of the already depleted hormone. Supplementing with vitamin D and carefully managing prescription medication dosages can help you to fix the underlying sleep disorder that is causing the neurological symptoms.
