Could this be causing your gas and heartburn?

Could this be causing your gas and heartburn?

  I think it’s safe to say that we have no shortage of people who are bloated, belching, burping, blocked up, and can play the Star-Spangled Banner with their flatulence. In fact, an astonishing 74 percent (three out of four) of us suffer either occasional or chronic (as in every day) digestive problems. The pharmaceutical industry squeals with delight as they tally up the profits from their sales of laxatives, stool softeners, acid reducers, antacids,...

When run-of-the-mill acid reflux becomes deadly

When run-of-the-mill acid reflux becomes deadly

  If you’re one of the 66 million people in the US with acid reflux, you know the misery it causes. This can go WAY beyond a 4-alarm fire in your chest and include chest pain, regurgitation, coughing, difficulty swallowing and sore throat. But there’s another consequence of acid reflux that is far worse than belching or sleeping propped up on pillows. Barrett’s esophagus. Let’s look at this silent and potentially deadly condition, as well...

Gut on fire?  Do what you need to do to stop it!

Gut on fire? Do what you need to do to stop it!

  It amazes me when people complain about gut aches, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, you-name-it, yet at the same time they are completely unwilling and resistant to doing what they need to do in order to feel better. They want so desperately to just eat the way they’ve always eaten, yet somehow magically feel great. I recently saw a comment from a member (I’ll call him “Bill”) of a Facebook digestive health support group that’s the...

Would you sell your farts in a jar?

Would you sell your farts in a jar?

  I heard a story on the radio last night about a reality TV star named Stephanie Matto who apparently made over $200,000 selling jars of her farts. She allegedly ate lots of beans and eggs to help, er, “manufacture” her product, and even added in some banana protein to enhance the stench. But alas, her ingenious enterprise was thwarted because she suffered very severe gas pains and thought she was having a heart attack....

If you’re low in these, disease is practically a given

If you’re low in these, disease is practically a given

  Although there are many “roads” that lead to disease (smoking, drug use, excessive alcohol use, having a nutrient-poor/junk food diet, chronic stress, and exposure to toxins), there is another one that very few people think of… But it’s arguably one the most common factors behind most illnesses! I’m talking about poor digestion. And if yours isn’t going along so well, you better be talking about it too. Fact is, you absolutely MUST have sound...

How your diet feeds disease…or fights it

How your diet feeds disease…or fights it

  I had the distinct pleasure of being a keynote speaker for the New York Corrections and Youth Services Association’s (NYCAYSA’s) Training Symposium in beautiful Alexandria Bay, NY this past weekend.  Many thanks to everyone there because you were a wonderful audience.  You were attentive, you asked great questions and you even laughed at my silly jokes. Since my presentation went over so well with the NYCAYSA group, I thought I would share highlights of...
