Inflammation is believed by many experts to be one of the main causes for many of the chronic conditions that affect people today. Fortunately, there are things you can do to support your body and your joints, and potentially lower inflammation. In this week's show we'll discuss how to approach arthritis and inflammation naturally, and how your lifestyle can affect your inflammation levels.

However, some people have cleaned up their diet and are taking probiotics, but they still struggle with gut issues. One possibility for this is a little-known parasite called H. pylori. H. pylori can cause many different symptoms and can have a profound impact on gut health in general, as well as potentially lead to an increased risk of certain types of cancers. In this week's show we'll discuss more advanced gut health and give you some tips on how to handle H. pylori.

    Digest Ease Mastic Gum/DGL - Digest Ease is a cinnamon flavored chewable tablet containing DGL (deglycyrrhizinated licorice root and rhizome extract) and mastic gum to support healthy digestion and gastrointestinal function.† This product may help alleviate gastrointestinal discomfort associated with occasional indigestion.†







    SBI Spore - Probiotics have been extensively studied and are characterized as having broad GI and immune benefits. Probiotics are live organisms and must be shelf stable through the expiration date, so they can be precisely delivered to the intestinal tract to have maximum benefit. Bacillus spores remain dormant in harsh environments until they reach more favorable environments like the human gastrointestinal tract. The combination of specific strains, particularly Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus subtilis, relieve symptoms for common GI complaints and reinforce healthy gut function.

    As the new year begins and the holiday season comes to an end, many people abandon the focus on gratitude they had during the holidays, but being grateful is important all year, and can even potentially have some health benefits.
