As more and more studies confirm, the gut is of the utmost importance to our overall health and immune system. And there is a lot of work to do, because millions of people suffer from gut diseases like candida, Crohn’s disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, ulcerative colitis and more. And how many other diseases will eventually prove to have their starting point in the problematic gut? I guess this will be one of the most important health issues of the coming decennia.

At the same time we do know and most doctors will agree that the use of antibiotics is destroying the health (good bacteria) of the gut lining.

Probiotics become more accepted to help repair problematic gut conditions. The most natural way to heal the gut appears to be by diet. There are fermented foods like organic sauerkraut, miso, tempeh, lassi, etc., containing a lot of natural probiotics.

A remarkable person who went literally through this whole problem field and cured herself the natural way is Jini Patel, who wrote a complete program to cure gut diseases. She figured out specific diets for well defined gut conditions including sample menus and reference guides. A lot of real life examples are featured. The program consists of a book, a DVD with all the information you need to take action and get your gut back on track, like treatment plans, candida test, a food diary, printable charts, diets, etc. If you suffer from any gut related illness, this is a must read as far as I’m concerned. I went through it and found it really worthwhile. So, I became an affiliate of them. If you like getting more information, click this link to the official site of the Listen To Your Gut Program.

Aspartame (brands: Nutrasweet®, Aminosweet®) or neotame? Several names for artificial sweeteners, but what difference does the name make, since they are all based on the same aspartic acid. Some are even more poisonous than others though.

But after so many bad reports about neurotoxic and immunotoxic health problems with aspartame (E951), they needed another name. Well, Neotame (E961) appears to be even more toxic because it’s “enhanced aspartame”. We can think that easily because it’s between 7.000 and 13.000 times sweeter than table sugar. My sweetness. Sounds healthy? Moreover, the problem with reports is that they are mostly funded by the industry and in case of negative results, funds are often retracted.

Neotame is also used (as Sweetos) to camouflage the taste of “less fresh” animal food, so that cattle is eating it nevertheless. Read the rest of this entry »

Olivier De Schutter, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, found out that the best way to solve global hunger is the agroecological approach.
That means agroforestry, mixed crop-livestock, biological pest control, intercropping, etc.

This is totally against the domination of food production by Monsanto and the likes, who are trying to force agriculture using their GMO seeds (claimed as intellectual property) and having about 50% of this market in their pocket already.

As Olivier De Schutter sees it, on the long run, agroecological farming techniques outperform modern mass production farming schemes, which are about genetically improved seeds, chemical fertilizers and extended use of machinery.
He brings together scientists, policymakers and farmers organizations to figure recommendations to the Committee on World Food Security.

In Africa, China, India and developing countries, it’s a lot easier to grow GM foods than in Europe, because it is more accepted, although GM foods are not tested well and stories of health problems are numerous. Still, tests with bio ethanol producing GM trees were refused in Belgium and then got accepted in their neighbour country The Netherlands.

In august 2009, the Egyptians surprisingly declared that they would refuse GM food. But then shortly after that, they retracted this bold statement. Why? Read the rest of this entry »

The Gerson Therapy is a safe, natural treatment developed by Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920’s that uses organic foods, juicing, coffee enemas, detoxification and natural supplements to activate the body’s ability to heal itself.  Over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

Think
It is a good idea to think about our health "before" we are dying from a disease that was avoidable by living the natural way, without chemical drugs that might bring our body down. Nevertheless, it's never too late to change life and study the laws of nature. Insight creates the right way to manage our health.
