Drug-resistant bacteria and antibiotics

I have a few dead horses which I choose to beat. The MYTH and FEAR associated with discontinuing UNNECESSARY antibiotics, in the event of improperly prescribed (viral illness), or excessive diarrhea (antibiotic induced diarrhea-which could be dangerous C. difficile overgrowth), is one of them.

For the Love of Fermented Foods

[Guest blog post from Ruth Almon of Ruth's Real Food.]



The first time I heard that people from traditional cultures eat a small amount of fermented foods at each meal, the information passed right by me. That’s fine for them, but I wasn’t about to start eating kimchi and sauerkraut with every meal.

 

The second time I learned about the wonderful properties of fermented foods, I was intrigued. It seemed…

tea and fluoride fears

Research the difference between naturally occurring calcium fluoride and synthetic sodium fluoride. The concern is instant teas, at worst. Not loose leaf tea.

What is Strep A?

An abnormal rapid strep test:  An abnormal or positive strep test means that strep bacteria are present.  



A positive test result does not distinguish those people with an active strep infection from those who are carriers of strep bacteria but actually have a viral infection (rather than a bacterial one).…

Group B Strep and pregnant

‎"Interestingly, the Cochrane Collection reviewed the evidence in 2009 and recommended no treatment for GBS in labor in low-risk situations. You may want to discuss your baby’s risk with the midwives, and whether they still recommend treatment in your situation if you test positive.

Placental Encapsulation

I've wanted to have some healthy placenta for about three years now.   Finding someone who'll share their placenta AND who has a pristine diet and health is another thing...



My wonderful friend offered to share some of her placenta when she birthed recently in exchange for the gift of preparing it for her in the traditional Chinese way.  (I'll include instructions below.)  I want to encourage women to consider embracing the benefits of placenta consumption…

Irradiated "organics"???

Talk to me about irradiated foods! What about whole foods, "organic" foods, are they irradiated too? I've never seen Anything labeled with this information!



Apparently, they've been irradiating wheat flour (since 1963). And meat & poultry since the '90s. It is perfectly safe according to this "fact sheet" prepared... by the UW Food Irradiation Education Group - (an obviously objective…

MTHFR?

Must look at current research in PubMed. MTHFR just identified around 1998, variants in 2001 and 2003. 35-50% of Americans affected with this gene polymorphism. Mandatory folic acid fortification in our foods since January 1, 1998.

Whole Food Heals

Mercury issues can be passed from mother to child, depending upon when mom's amalgam fillings were placed or removed, and whether mom's detox pathways are open or blocked. Nutrient deficiencies create blocked detox pathways. (And 50% of the population has a genetic predisposition to blocked methylation detox pathway with the MTHFR gene polymorphism.)



Most Americans have nutrient deficiencies, even and especially in the presence of multivitamin supplementation.… Continue

Mastitis

I'd focus on magnesium sources, Nettles infusions are great, as are Epsom salt baths and Epsom salt compresses for comfort. Food folate, again such as in the Nettles or green smoothies will help the PPD and natural detox pathways. Bone broths are another wonderful source of minerals to support the immune system.



Whole food probiotics, rather than bottled, provide more different strains of microbials in larger amounts. Milk kefir (or water kefir is dairy free) has tons of probiotic… Continue
