h-pylori

This little bacteria…

It infects more than 50% of the world’s population.

Flip a coin and that’s the probability you have it living inside your GI tract right now.

But is it hurting you? Or maybe, just maybe, the infection is helping you…

There’s evidence linking this infection to ulcers and stomach cancer. But then again, there’s evidence it may play an important role in your immune system and gut flora.

This is the controversy of H. pylori.

And this is what we’re going to dive into in this article.

How Two Hardcore Scientists Discovered H. Pylori

H. pylori is a bacteria. It’s full name is Helicobacter pylori.

It was unknown until two hardcore scientists discovered it in 1982.

See, back then it was commonly believed that stomach ulcers were just a byproduct of stress. But these two Australian scientists, Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, didn’t believe that.

Marshall and Warren discovered a bacteria (H. pylori) and decided to take biopsies of patients with stomach ulcers and gastritis. They formulated the hypothesis that H. pylori was actually the cause of such G.I. disorders.

The problem was that they needed a way to prove it. Unable to run trials on mice (H. pylori can’t infect mice) and unable to get approval for human studies… Marshall infected himself with H. pylori and, after developing precursory ulcer symptoms, biopsied his stomach and found the suspected culprit. He proceeded to treat himself with antibiotics to get rid of the infection and made a full recovery.

That’s dedication to science! [click to continue…]

Excuse me, but your guts are leaking…

“Leaky Gut” sounds pretty weird right? I’ll never forget the first time I heard the term back when I was struggling with chronic diarrhea and low energy…

The first thing that popped in my mind was, “Ewwww, does that mean my poop is leaking into my body?”

Now that I’ve spent years understanding this condition… the funny thing is that’s not too far from the truth. But the thing that worries me the most about this condition is that it’s a growing epidemic that most people don’t even know they’re suffering from.

It can masquerade as fatigue, anxiety, depression, digestive symptoms, weight problems, and other serious conditions…

It’s been found in association with chronic diseases including: asthma, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel, kidney disease, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and heart failure…

And even with all the latest technology and over 10,000+ research papers on it, this hidden epidemic is still often referred to as the “Disease Your Doctor Can’t Diagnose…”

If you or loved ones are struggling with chronic illness, like my family and I did, this might be the most important thing you’ll ever read. [click to continue…]

We’re all human… and part of being human in today’s world we live in means CRAVINGS.

And with cravings comes falling off the wagon…

And with falling off the wagon comes flare ups and setbacks…

It’s a slippery slope of shame and feeling sorry for ourselves.

And I know because I deal with cravings too.  In this video, I share the specific foods that bring me to my knees and exact steps I use to beat cravings before they spiral out of control.

I cover everything from my “state change” exercise to the root cause of cravings that Functional Medicine testing and supplementation can really help resolve.

If you’re human… and you’re struggling with cravings, this video is an open, honest conversation about what to do about them from someone who’s been fighting the same battle for the last 7 years.

Enjoy!

What do you do when the symptoms come raging back?

When that panic rips through your chest and it feels like everything you’ve been working for is all for nothing?

What do you do when that happens and how do you get yourself back to feeling good?

If you’ve ever had a terrible setback, you know how intense and emotionally derailing they can be.

Sometimes, a huge setback can even cause people to give up…

In this video, I cover the 3-step “Emergency Reset Protocol” I used to reset my body after a wicked setback. This is the same protocol we’ve been sharing over the years that restores your hope when it feels like you’re back to square one.

Once you watch this video, use these additional resources to take back control of your health:

Leave a comment and let me know your setback tools that have worked for you in the past.

In good health,
