Hello Everyone.  It is that time of year again. Below are my top ten ways to treat colds and flu.

1. Eliminate Foods That Are Mucus Producing.  In the fall and winter months the climate is very damp which is can be conducive to breed germs.  Even if you are living in a dry climate you can still be damp internally which is why   we need to control our internal environment by avoiding foods that can create

What Are the Best Ways to Heal Your Digestive System?

What Are the Best Ways to Heal Your Digestive System?


1. Add food into your diet that can help manage pathogens such as parasites and fungus.  Herbs such as ginger, garlic, fennel, thyme, and oregano all contain anti-parasite and anti-fungal properties.  If you have acid reflux makes sure you’re tested for H.pylori.  H-pylori is a bacterial that is responsible for the majority of the symptoms associated with acid reflux.


2. Enhance your digestive system with digestive enzymes.  We need enzymes such as lipase, protease, and lactase to facilitate the digestion of fats, protein and sugar.  You can purchase a digestive enzyme supplement from the health food store which can be taken at every meal.  If you want to go the herbal route try Sweetish Bitters. Sweetish Bitters is a time tested herbal remedy which contains the herb gentian root, it is commonly used before and after meals to reduce gas and bloating.

3. Begin Taking Probiotics (acidophilus).  Acidophilus supplies your body with good bacteria to fight off the bad bacteria.  Numerous studies have shown that daily supplementation with acidophilus will enhance the immune response not just for colds and flu but also for allergies and digestive disorders.  We need good bacteria to digest our food.  Always take acidophilus away from food – trust me.

4. Green Tea has been shown to help facilitate the growth of friendly bacterial and prevent tooth decay.  Have a cup or two per day of this powerful antioxidant.

5.       Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) , Glycyrrhetinic acid is removed to avoid possible side effects (hypertension, cardiac dysfunction).  Several studies have found DGL to be equal or superior to Tagamet, Zantac or antacids in treatment of gastric or duodenal ulcer. DGL apparently inhibits H. pylori. DGL promotes natural mucosal protective factors.

6.       L-Glutamine facilitates new growth of the intestinal cells to support the healing process of the G.I. tract. Glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, structure & function of the entire gastrointestinal tract. It is the primary energy source for the cells that line your intestines & is essential to keeping them healthy.
