Subject: What’s the Best, Healthiest Butter Substitute?





People might want to find a brand new option to butter and they are in luck because there is a better and healthier option out there for them. Coconut oil and coconut butter are two options that can work for you. Coconut oil is considered to be very unhealthy for you, but it is actually good for you, as long as it is in moderation. The problem might be that people are overdoing it when it comes to the oil.

Key Takeaways:

  • Real, grass-fed butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk also known as milk fat. It’s composed of about 80 percent fat
  • Now, most recent studies suggest that real, grass-fed butter can be healthy for you, though past research has positioned too much butter as bad for your heart due to its saturated fat content
  • There are many substitutes for butter for these reasons and more, but if you choose to eat butter, have the real thing

"Have you ever given thought to exactly what butter is? Is butter dairy? Let’s do a little butter 101."

Many minor stomach concerns are nothing to to be concerned about. However, there are some symptoms you should never ignore as they can be signs of a serious illness that needs to be address. If you have any of the following symptoms: Mouth ulcers, anemia, loss of weight without trying, cramping, persistent diarrhea, a general feeling of unwellness or fatigue, you should make an appointment with your physician to assess you stomach pain. It is most likely nothing to worry about, but even IBD or Crohn's disease should be taken seriously and be managed by a physician.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a blanket term for a number of diseases including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. Symptoms of IBD vary, but may include diarrhea, fever, fatigue and stools containing blood, pus or mucus. Diagnosis of IBD is usually made before the age of 30, with those of Caucasian or Ashkenazi Jewish heritage most commonly afflicted. Tests to confirm an IBD diagnosis may include stool sample analysis, blood tests and endoscopic procedures. While it cannot be cured, IBD treatment focuses on symptoms and reduction of disease flare-ups. Such treatment can include medication, dietary changes, increasing intake of water and stress management. In rare instances, surgery may be needed.

Subject: Yeast brew trouble for inflammatory bowel disorders





Yeast living in the intestines may worsen symptoms of Crohn's disease, reports a new study. If the fungus is stopped from causing problems in the intestines, patients could also feel relief from inflammatory bowel disorders. Anti-inflammatory medications are often used to treat IBDs, but it turns out that many patients with IBDs have an immune response to yeast. A study on mice found that high levels of yeast caused them to produce excess uric acid, and that their bowel disease could then be treated with medication to reduce the uric acid. The researchers are confident these results could be used on humans as well.

Subject: Stunning scientific discovery finds that gut bacteria control your brain chemistry, altering moods and more





It has long been known that things in your body are connected. We don't know all the ways yet but studies are often done about it. This provides information about a new finding. It explains what your gut bacteria can do to the chemicals in the brain and how that affects you in daily life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Studies have shown that the gut microbiome plays a key role in regulating everything from digestion and metabolism to immune function and even mood, but the mechanisms of this action remain largely a mystery.
  • Research has also confirmed that people with IBD have a different gut microbiome composition than healthy people.
  • The human gut alone hosts approximately 100 trillion bacteria and other microbes of many different species.

Neither treatment addresses the underlying causes of the condition. The new study consisted of an analysis of a small group of pediatric Crohn’s and UC patients at Suskind’s clinic whose parents consented to their treatment solely with an experimental dietary treatment for IBD. IBD is a cluster of related diseases characterized by pathological inflammation of the digestive tract

Key Takeaways:

  • Kittelson says that adjusting to the SCD was hard at first, but that following the diet is now relatively effortless and automatic.
  • We’ve even adjusted holiday traditions to fit into our new lifestyle. Instead of candy for special occasions, we swap them for other things.
  • Because foods are more complex than drugs and don’t make profit for drug companies, medical research has been slow to research dietary intervention.

Can Prunes Reverse Bone Loss?

Subject: Can Prunes Reverse Bone Loss?





There has been some research that supports the theory that eating prunes can prevent and possibly reverse bone loss. Unfortunately, this research was done on mice, and involved eating prunes as 25% of their diet. A similar study done on women showed comparable results, but they were also taking vitamin D and calcium supplements. There was no control group in the study taking just the supplements without eating prunes. Given this information, it is too soon to conclude that the prunes were mainly responsible for the change in bone health.

Key Takeaways:

  • One compared the effects of eating 100 grams of prunes with 75 grams of dried apples on bone mass in women who were post menopausal.
  • A hundred grams of prunes, by the way is about 12 prunes, which amounts to about 240 calories.
  • The women in this study did not experience any significant weight gain over the course of the year.

"The study went on for one year, during which both groups also took calcium and vitamin D supplements."

What Are Probiotics And How Can They Improve Colon Health?

Subject: What Are Probiotics And How Can They Improve Colon Health?

Overview

Sometimes when you turn on the television set when you get home you will see some commercials about some product talking about the benefits of probiotics and that some food products are fortified with it and some are about over the counter supplements. They probably will be talking about colon health and some other benefits and that would make you wonder what it truly is and if it will also help you. Well what I can tell you is, it should because it benefits anyone or anything that has a colon but I guess like most things it still depends on your unique body chemistry as to whether or not it will be as effective as people say it will be on those ads. In general though, it definitely is something that helps strengthen and maintain colon health so let us look at probiotics in detail and we should be able to know if it is something which may be suitable for us.

Probiotics

Simply put, it is bacteria. At first glance you may think, why would I want to put bacteria in my body when all I am trying to do every day is to stay away from bacteria? However probiotics is defined as any form of bacteria that is used medically for treatments in other words it may be bacteria but it is used in such a way that it will give positive health benefits to the body because there is such a thing as good and bad bacteria and probiotics is part of the good side of the bacteria family.

Just to give you an idea of how bacteria coexists within our body and even does good things, in our digestive system alone there are hundreds of different species of bacteria residing in there and most of them plays a role in a number of essential bodily functions like affecting nutrient absorption, food processing and cleansing of the colon. So yes, we are able to benefit from having certain species of bacteria in our body.

Probiotics and Colon Health

Colon health has long been shown to be directly proportional to the level of probiotics in the body. Many gastrointestinal diseases like Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS, intestinal bowel disorders or IBD and Crohn’s disease are found to occur in patients with low probiotic levels in the stomach and subsequently when supplemented with bifidobacteria or lactobacilli which are specific examples of probiotics so as to help increase levels, the symptoms of these diseases goes down. In the modern American diet today, it does seem that there is a lack of consumption for foods that contain good levels of probiotics.

Although I do agree with increasing foods with good levels of probiotics it is not enough to correct years of imbalance and the only way is to include supplementation as part of your diet. It will allow for a good cleanse of the colon as proper levels will allow regular stool passage and when that happens it will also flush away good bacteria so maintenance is needed and with supplementation, you will be able to do that.

What Is Slippery Elm Bark and How Does It Help Improve Colon And Digestive Health

Slippery Elm History.

Slippery elm bark is an herbal remedy derived entirely from a tree species of the same name. Its use in maintaining colon health has been associated with Native Americans, who continue to use the inner bark of the tree as a treatment for skin conditions, gum problems, and sore throats in addition to digestive problems. In recent years, there have been numerous citations of its ability to significantly alleviate illnesses of the gastrointestinal tract, and its use has even been suggested by medical professionals in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, peptic ulcers, and abdominal pains.

Ulmus rubra is a tree species native to North America, but its range and distribution is limited to Southern Quebec down to Northern Florida and west to eastern Texas. It prefers soils that are rich in moisture, with large populations present in uplands, but it also thrives well in dry regions. This deciduous tree is commonly known by the names Slippery elm, Red elm, Moose elm, and Indian elm. The name Red elm refers to its heartwood that is reddish-brown in color. The leaves and the inner bark are dried and powdered beforehand, and then made into a tea or packed as supplements.

Increases Mucus Secretions

Recent studies have observed that slippery elm bark stimulates the nerve endings of the intestinal walls. Excess acidity is thought to result from both the diet and the stomach’s secretions of hydrochloric acid. While peptic ulcers are often caused by invasive pathogens, cases in which the acidic environment in the stomach brings on lesions in the gastrointestinal tract are not uncommon. Slippery elm bark works on the principle of inducing the secretions of gastrointestinal mucosa, which rebalances the pH inside the digestive tract.

Slippery Elm Bark Properties

Exhibits Antioxidant Properties

Researchers ascribe the effects of slippery elm bark on inhibiting inflammation of the digestive tract to its antioxidant properties. Free radicals have been tied to many diseases, and inflammatory bowel disease is believed to be influenced by an imbalance between free radicals and the antioxidant defense of the body. Indeed free radicals can cause tissue damage as each cell’s ability to neutralize them is compromised. Unfortunately they are a natural by-product of oxygen metabolism and other chemical reactions, which means the only way to dispose of them is to strengthen cellular antioxidant defense.

Heals Lesions and Ulcerations

Native Americans have long used slippery elm bark as an ingredient in salves used for wounds and sores. It is widely accepted that medicinal products containing powdered slippery elm bark reduce inflammation and speed up the process of healing. For the same reasons, oral administrations appear to produce similar effects on ulcerations of the alimentary canal, allaying abdominal pains.

Slippery elm bark is a known cleanser for the gastrointestinal tract. People who felt benefited from it believe it eases stomach cramps and improve colon disturbances. While more studies are needed for its efficacy, slippery elm bark products are generally considered to be safe.

Slippery Elm bark is excellent therapy for the digestive tract. Don’t be with out it!
