If You Have Stretch Marks Try Skin Candy

Status

Skin Candy helps reduce stretch marks

Skin Candy was created by Romy Frank, a third generation holistic healer. While she was pregnant and on bed rest with a high risk pregnancy, she noticed the first signs of stretch marks. She knew she needed to find out what could reduce the appearance of stretch marks and prevent them as soon as possible.

Romy started researching how different natural ingredients could help. What she found was that cocoa butter contained a high concentration of antioxidant compounds, including oleic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid. Not only are these fatty acids good for internal use but they help to neutralize free radicals on our skin. She formulated her product with a blend of Vitamin E, and wheat germ oil.

Both contain antioxidants and vitamins A, D and B, which help to moisturize and prevent scarring.

Through her research Romy discovered that cocoa butter has a long list of benefits when used topically.

Check out a Natural Approach to Colitis Relief

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disorder that affects the large bowel or the colon. This disorder is the inflammation of the colon, which is responsible for gathering and storing excess waste from digestion. If you have colitis and want to treat it naturally, there are many options available to you.

Various circumstances may cause inflammation of the colon and result in colitis, such as an autoimmune disease, infection or an overgrowth of bad bacteria. The symptoms of colitis are typically sporadic and come and go with fairly long periods in-between flare-ups. Some patients will have no symptoms in between these periods of flare-ups.

What are the Symptoms of Colitis?

The first symptom of ulcerative colitis is a progressive loosening of the stool. The stool is generally bloody and may be associated with cramping, abdominal pain and severe urgency to use the bathroom. The diarrhea may begin slowly or quite suddenly.

Other symptoms are loss of appetite, weight loss and fatigue. In addition, there may be skin lesions, joint pain, eye inflammation, and liver disorders.

When young children have Ulcerative Colitis they may fail to develop or grow properly.

Approximately half of all patients with Ulcerative Colitis have mild symptoms. However, others may suffer with more severe symptoms such as abdominal cramping, bloody diarrhea, nausea, and fever.

There are supplements that help with colitis like prebiotics and probiotics. Many of those suffering with Colitis have found that changing their diets has a significant impact on their symptoms  and flare-ups. Other people opt for natural treatments that compliment their treatment protocol described by their doctors.

Depending on how you manage your diet, the symptoms can range from intense to remission.

What Are Natural Ways You Can Manage Colitis?

Cutting down on refined carbohydrates. These are foods made with white flour and sugar. For recipe ideas check out  the The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Cookbook by Raman Prasad.

Avoiding foods that trigger an allergic response. Keep a food journal to write down what you are eating. Foods which typically are not agreeable for Colitis sufferers are wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, eggs and GMO corn.

Eat a diet rich in prebiotic. Prebiotics grow the good bacteria in your gut. Try adding Jerusalem artichokes, dandelion greens, garlic, onion, leeks and asparagus to your meals. If you want additional fiber you can easily supplement with Perfect Pass Prebiotic. Just add a scoop to water, juice or a smoothie daily.

Cut down on sugar or eliminate it completely. Supplement with honey, stevia, brown rice syrup, coconut sugar, or xylitol.

Add a spore based probiotic to your daily routine. The imbalance of bacteria is thought to be a potential cause of Ulcerative Colitis. We recommend taking 2 capsules daily of Perfect Pass Probiotic to add in more good bacteria which crowds out the bad bacteria. Several studies have shown that probiotics help reduce the symptoms during flareups.

If your symptoms become severe, it is important for you to seek medical help. Persistent diarrhea, feelings of weakness, dehydration, and fever can all indicate serious concerns and you will want to be under a doctors care.

15 Reasons Why Chlorophyll Is Important

15 Reasons why chlorophyll is good for you

What is Chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll is the molecule that gives plants and algae their green pigment and traps sunlight for photosynthesis.

But….did you know chlorophyll has amazing benefits for people?

Chlorophyll is found in leafy green veggies such as arugula, wheat grass, leeks, parsley, kale, swiss chard spinach and sprouts. Other sources include blue green algae, chlorella and spirulina.

Chlorophyll has a ton of benefits:

  • Oxygenates blood
  • Increases the absorption of iron
  • Builds blood
  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Promotes rapid healing of skin lesions and ulcers
  • Stops the growth of bacteria
  • Reduces insomnia
  • Benefits the heart
  • Improves blood pressure
  • Improves inflammation
  • Removes harmful impurities and toxins
  • Binds to and flushes out heavy metals such as mercury
  • Reduces the harmful effects of radiation and helps eliminate pesticide and drug deposits from the body
  • Promotes healthy digestion by maintaining intestinal flora and stimulating bowel movements
  • Eliminates the symptoms of oral infections and calms inflamed and bleeding gums

Chlorophyll can be supplemented by taking capsules or by adding liquid chlorophyll to juice or water.

Why Should You Take a Stool Test?

GI symptoms are your bodies way of warning you that something is wrong.

If you have ongoing intestinal symptoms  that’s your body’s way of telling you that your gut is out of balance.

Yes, the signs and symptoms you are experiencing are your body’s warning system. These red flags are asking you to pay attention to your body. The very first step you should take is an easy to do, ‘at home’ stool test.

Did you know that Gastrointestinal or GI problems are usually the most common reasons that people look for medical attention.

Stool testing gives you invaluable information about what’s going on in your gut. Maybe you are experiencing symptoms like diarrhea, gas, constipation or bloating. If so, it’s a good idea to find out what’s going on in your gut so you know where to start in repairing it.

Without this valuable information it’s a guessing game and you can waste hundreds of dollars trying different protocols to heal your gut, without getting to know what the cause is.

We recommend Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis to help you understand the underlying reasons for your symptoms.

What Does a Doctors Data At Home Stool Test Help You Determine?

  • Reasons for nausea, vomiting and bloating
  • Why you have loss of appetite
  • Abdominal, cramping and diarrhea causes
  • Absorption of nutrients
  • Parasites
  • Infections from bacteria, viruses, or funguses
  • Liver problems
  • Pancreatic function
  • Digestive conditions such as Crohn’s and Colitis

How is Dr.’s Data Test Different From Other At Home Stool Tests?

Doctor’s Data labs have been examining stool samples  for over 40 years. Doctor’s Data became the first lab in the functional medicine industry to introduce MALDI-TOF (Matrix- Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time of Flight) as a method of identifying bacteria and yeast in stool culture. MALDI-TOF works by measuring the unique “fingerprints” of our microorganisms. This spectra is then compared to a reference database for verification and identification.

What Makes the MALDI-TOF a Superior Measure for Stool Testing?

Doctor’s Data utilizes MALDI-TOF in combination with “high-complexity” culture for rapid, accurate and reliable identification of hundreds of gastrointestinal bacterial and yeast species, and even subspecies. The MALDI-TOF reference database is the most expansive and is growing by about 100 species per month. To date they have identified over 180 yeast species; 65 of these are Candida alone. This ability to differentiate is extremely important since some patients may have up to 6 or 7 different strains.

All of Doctors Data CSA tests use the MALDI-TOF technology. Heres what Sandra Richter, Director of Bacteriology in the departments of Clinical Pathology and Molecular Pathology at The Cleveland Clinic, had to say about it. “It is clear that this is a giant step forward in the accuracy and speed of organism identification routinely reported by the lab.”
