Pain Is Big Business

Pain is the number one reason people go to the doctor. Why? Doctors don’t know much about healing! They just dish out painkillers and don’t know how to solve anything.

The Gut is Far More Than Just Your Digestive System! Your gut is considered a third branch of your central nervous system, made up of more than 100 million nerves working together to communicate through the nerve pathways to the rest of your body.  The enteric nervous system (ENS) is referred to by experts as your body’s “second brain” or...

Is Your Sudden Weight Gain Caused by Chronic Inflammation?

Sudden weight gain is not only frustrating, it can affect your mental and physical health.  Figuring out how to stop – and then reverse it – is critical.   What causes sudden weight gain?  There are a lot of theories but the one that makes the most scientific sense is chronic inflammation.   We all deal with the symptoms of inflammation at one time or another.  It’s a natural immune response that happens when you get sick or injured.  A fever or a cut that becomes red and swollen are evidence that your immune system is kicking in and...
