3 Health Benefits Of Aloe Vera (Not Just For Sunburn)

Every summer millions of pounds of aloe vera gel are sold to help lessen the pain of sunburn. I understand the feeling all too well, as I’ve accidentally fallen asleep outside and suffered the consequences of a little bit too much sun.  And while I love using aloe vera to help hydrate and soothe a red-hot sunburn I’d be crazy not to let you know about other things aloe can do for you. It just so happens that aloe vera is one of the few forms of vegetation that doesn’t just look great in a terracotta pot, but also will help you maintain great health.

Could the Treatment For the Cold Live In Your Stomach?

The reason I’m writing this article today is because inside my home a common virus is wreaking havoc. That’s right, it’s the middle of winter and we’ve been sucker-punched by the cold. The common cold may be a misnomer. While we say it’s common in daily life, every cold we come down sick with is a variation of a type of virus called the rhinovirus. Rhino (which means nose) viruses form the genesis of most colds you’ll ever have in your life. The Rhinovirus is also different than the flu (influenza) so a distinction needs to be made for those who conflate the two with each other. All that to be said, if you want to improve your ability to...

These Symptoms May Mean You Suffer From A Medical Mystery

I have a “gut” feeling that you’re not going to like what you hear today. However, I think it’s important you learn about this problem so you can fix it. This is a problem that isn’t yet recognized by the mainstream medical community, so you might not get the help you need there, which is why I’ll tell you about it today. True, I didn’t learn about it in medical school, even though over 2,000 years ago the man called the father of medicine recognized the problem. (No, not me… I can’t time travel but if I could, he’s one guy I’d love to meet).  Let’s check out some of these symptoms and see if any of them sound familiar: ...

Interesting Link Between Probiotics And Cancer

In my office, one of the methods I always mention for helping improve overall health is boosting gut health. I’d be willing to guess many of you reading this have probably learned over the past few years that the health of your gut is linked to your total health. It’s why getting good bacteria, known to improve gut health, into your body is so popular now.  Understandably, most people associate improved gut health with less gas and bloat. And that’s a correct association to make. Plenty of Americans who have improved their gut health find their stomach feels better and they break wind a lot less. Many of their spouses notice this too. :) The cool thing about probiotics and gut...
