It is estimated that over 50% of homes in the US have some form of mold damage. With so many people living in homes that have been damaged by mold, it is important to take a look into the possible health issues that mold exposure can cause.While the health issues from mold exposure typically don't hit the mainstream media, it is becoming more known that mold can wreak havoc on people's health.

He has countless stories of people who have suffered with misdiagnosed health issues that all relate back to mold exposure.In the guide below, you will learn the steps to take to test your home, yourself, and to recover from mold toxicity.
Excessive bloating and gas and the different health issues that both underlies and might arise from them is something that a lot of people suffer from, but not a lot of people feel comfortable enough to openly discuss about.More often than not, people tend to brush it off as an annoying but somewhat tolerable inconvenience. But as it turns out, bloating and gas is not just a mere nuisance. It could be, at the least, an early warning system, or worse, a full-scale distress signal from the gut. So if you are presenting with these two symptoms, it is critical that you start on a more involved investigation.
Homeopathy is a practice that has been around for hundreds of years. While many people have some hard opinions on the efficacy of homeopathic remedies, there are quite a few principles they use that are used in conventional medical practices as well.Homeopathic remedies are used to help stimulate the immune system to create antibodies for similar illnesses. This process in a way is similar to how allergists will use allergens as a way to build up someone's defense against those allergens.What many people expect from a remedy is something to have chemical components that can fight off an illness, similar to medication. However, medication is designed to counter an illness, whereas homeopathic remedies are designed to strengthen the internal defenses of the body.
Have you ever gone through a phase in your life where you gained weight rapidly, or your energy plummeted, or your hair started to fall out? If so, these are some common signs of thyroid dysfunction.If you ever had these symptoms but went to your doctor and had labwork done, and everything came back in the normal ranges, then you are in the same boat as many other people. In most cases, doctors are only testing for one marker, known as TSH. This marker doesn't tell the entire story of the thyroid.In fact, even with a full thyroid panel done, it can give a practitioner a lot of information to work with, but it still doesn't tell the story of the thyroid. On top of other organ systems in the body that can impact the function of the thyroid, your emotional and mental state can also be a factor.
How often do you think about breathing? During the day, probably not very much, but you probably notice it when you are doing any kind of strenuous activity. However, we breathe all day long, and it is a vital function for our survival.We follow training protocols to improve our strength and cardio capabilities. When we don't feel great, we look for natural remedies or medications to make us feel better. There are so many ways that we try to improve our health, yet when was the last time you purposely worked to improve the way you breathe?Oxygen is important to the body, we all know that. Without it for a couple of minutes, we can lose brain function or even cause death. Oxygen helps to transport nutrients through the body, flushes out toxins, and creates energy.The Wim Hof Method is a fantastic way to improve the way you breathe. Through these methods, you can retrain your body to better utilize oxygen and to strengthen the muscles needed to breathe efficiently.
When you imagine someone who is hypermobile, what comes to mind? Do you think of a contortionist whose hypermobile joints can bend in ways unimaginable? Or what about the people who can pull their finger back all the way to their wrist?While both of those examples are of people with hypermobile tendencies, it does not mean that they are immune to joint pain and health issues. In fact, many people with increased flexibility tend to run into a lot of health issues, including digestive disorders.
Many people are starting to suffer from a condition known as chronic fatigue. Chronic fatigue is defined as fatigue that doesn't go away with rest.Fatigue is a very broad topic that can have many different causes. Naturally we feel some levels of fatigue from the stress of daily life, but in many cases this should be remedied with adequate rest. Therefore chronic states of exhaustion is caused by something more underlying, such as an undiagnosed illness.
The gut microbiome is one of the most powerful regions of the human body. A lot of research is coming out about the importance of the bacteria in the body, and Kiran Krishnan is one of the researchers leading the way for all of us.The microbiome is made of around 1500 different strains of bacteria that all work together to keep the body healthy. Of the 1500 strains, we only understand around 10% of their total functionality.With more research coming out every single day, soon we will be able to understand how each strain of bacteria impacts the body.
You may have noticed that we have quite a few episodes that are focused on children and ways to improve their health. In fact, it saddens me that there are so many children out there who are suffering from conditions with little understanding of why it is happening. This is why we keeping bringing up the topic about ways to make children healthy again.I focus on children a lot because they aren't in the best position to know what's best for themselves. They go off of what they have been taught, so it is important as adults that we stay up to date with why each generation is getting sicker.A common theme that you may have heard between episodes is that the food we are eating is not the best for children, or even adults. Processed foods are stripped of nutrients, sanitized in ways we don't want to know about, and are designed to make us snack more often.
It seems like every single day we have more advancements in the research done on the human microbiome. Word has spread about the gut microbiome, and the genitalia microbiome. But new development is coming out in areas of the body we least expect it.Such as the Ocular Microbiome, better known as the bacteria of the eye.Researchers have discovered an ecosystem of the microbiome within the eye. In these early stages of research, the eye is showing to have a much smaller population of bacteria than other areas of the body, such as the gut. This does not mean that the ocular microbiome isn't important. In fact, it could tell us more about how to protect the eye and how to prevent eye disease.
Over the past few summers, a new pattern has risen over on the West Coast: an increase in wildfires. Naturally, there will always be the threat of wildfire when the landscape becomes dry, but lately there have been more fires, which leads to more exposure to wildfire smoke.When the air becomes so thick with smoke, the obvious question is how does wildfire smoke effect your health.

Over the past couple of decades, we have seen a big increase in neurotransmitter dysfunction ranging from anxiety and depression, to Alzheimer's and even Schizophrenia. The 4 main neurotransmitters that we pay attention to are:Serotonin GABA Catecholamines Endorphins There has been a lot of information coming out about the power of the Ketogenic Diet for optimal brain function, but that relates mostly to the brain cells using ketones as the primary fuel source compared to glucose. What we don't hear about often enough is the types of amino acids needed to produce neurotransmitters.
It has been estimated that over 45 million Americans participate in diets each year, and less than 5% continue to maintain the diet after a couple of months. This means there is a big disconnect between diets, and how to make it a lifestyle change. Katie Garces says that what we are missing in most diets is teaching about intuitive eating.As we well know, we have lost most of our connection with the food that we eat because food has become very convenient, and we don't have to work hard to get it. Because of the convenience, we start to lose our ability to understand what our body needs in terms of nutrients and foods.
