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.

Cocoa Butter

How does cocoa butter help nourish your skin?

  • Prevents skin dryness, flaking and peeling
  • Reduces appearance of stretch marks
  • Heals chapped lips
  • Fights signs of aging

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.

Next time you need antibiotics try anti-fungals instead

anti-fungals instead of antibiotics

Try Anti-fungals Instead of Antibiotics

Unfortunately, antibiotics prescribed today have serious side effects that can take a long time for you to recover from. They wreak havoc on your gut when the good bacteria is wiped out along with the bad bacteria. The good news is that there are many natural anti-fungals that can help you fight bad bacteria and pathogens.

A few of the anti-fungals that we love are Oregano Oil, Berberis and Citracidal. It is well known that before the discovery of antibiotics, herbs were used to disinfect wounds and treat bacteria infections. Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, practiced for 1000’s of years, relies heavily on the chemical compounds found in plants.

We love using anti-fungals along with probiotics to treat digestion symptoms which are caused by bad bacteria, overgrowth of yeast or even parasites. Here’s how these anti-fungals can help you without compromising your health down the road.

Oregano oil

Oregano oil protects you against both bacterial infections as well as viral infections. The antibacterial effects of oregano don’t eliminate all the good gut bacteria the way antibiotics do. Here’s how you can use this “natural antibiotic.”

  • Prevents Viral Infections
  • Eliminates intestinal worms when taken internally
  • Keeps away lice, bed bugs, mosquitoes, and fleas when applied externally
  • Eliminates candida yeast
  • Eliminates UTI’s
  • Treats toe nail fungus
  • Treats sinus infections and allergies

*Oregano essential oil can cause irritation of the skin and mucus membrane if taken in high concentration or dosages. Always dilute oregano oil if taken internally with juice or water. When applied to the skin mix with coconut oil or another carrier oil.

Citricidal Grapefruit Seed Extract

This extract is derived from the bitter seeds and cell membranes of a grapefruit. It’s been discovered that the extract is a powerful anti-fungal and has anti microbial properties as well against pathogens like E Coli and Salmonella. Read more of what this powerful little seed can do:

  • Fights pathogenic organisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses
  • Fights Candida
  • Kills Antibiotic-Resistant UTIs

Berberine

  • Prevents candida species from producing an enzyme called lipase which they use to help colonize in the gut
  • Treats bacterial diarrhea
  • Counteract effects of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and worms
  • Eradicates Chlamydia
  • Helps keep stools regular
  • Reduces bad LDL cholesterol
  • Helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels
  • Treats eye infections

    Consider using anti-fungals if you are experiencing digestion symptoms that are not going away with probiotics. Even better, take a stool test and find out what’s going on in your gut. You might need anti-fungal therapy that will work together with your probiotics to restore the normal balance to your gut.

Probiotic Therapy-How to Get the Best Results

Watch Part 2 of our Microbiome series with Kiran Krishnan.

Kiran Krishnan, Microbiologist

We hope you are enjoying learning all the latest news on the Microbiome. We have another informative video for you this week. Just in time for the holiday weekend where we may be tempted to have that extra hot dog or slice of apple pie.

In case you missed our last video, we will be posting regular you tube videos of our interviews with Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan who is the Chief Scientific Officer of Microbiome Labs.

Over the last 12 years Kiran has been focused on the study of the Human Microbiome.

Kiran is a frequent lecturer on the Human Microbiome at Medical and Nutrition Conferences worldwide. He is currently involved in 4 clinical trials on probiotics.

We asked Kiran about how taking multiple strains of probiotics increases the effectiveness.

 

When it comes to multiple strains, it’s good to diversify our gut flora.

Right?

While this is true, taking a probiotic with 15 different strains that can’t penetrate through the stomach acids in your gut and immediately die off is not going to have a very positive or prolonged effect.

There are certain strains which have a better result in effecting your gut and creating positive change. One such strain is the Bacillus Endospore.

Why is the Bacillus Endospore Strain One of the Best Universally?

  • Acts as the ‘police’ of your gut
  • Gets rid of your bad bacteria and fungus
  • Fixes damage to the intestinal lining of your gut, which leads to Leaky Gut
  • Increase your metabolic function
  • Improves your immune function
  • Regulates balance of intestinal flora
  • Enhances growth of your good bacteria

Should you take more probiotic strains and a higher dose to create more profound change in the gut?

Listen to Kiran’s answer to this question by clicking below.

Stay tuned for Part 3 of the Microbiome Series with Good Gut Solution & Kiran Krishnan coming in two weeks.

 

Probiotics-Therapy for Overall Health

Good Gut Solution interviewed Kiran Krishnan this week on all the latest research and findings on the Microbiome.

Kiran Krishnan, Microbiologist

Kiran Krishnan is a Microbiologist & Chief Scientific Officer of Microbiome Labs. Kiran is a frequent lecturer on the Human Microbiome at Medical and Nutrition Conferences worldwide. He is currently involved in 4 clinical trials on probiotics and how they relate to overall health.

Over the last 12 years Kiran has been focused on the study of the Human Microbiome.

I was grateful to have the chance to talk with Kiran about his latest research and ask him some important questions about his current understanding of the microbiome.

We have a lot of new information that we’ll be sharing  with you over the next coming weeks.

What are the newest findings on the Human Microbiome?

As you know, there are trillions of bacteria living in your gut.  Most of these trillion microorganisms have been there practically from the day you were born. What you may not know, however, is exactly how they have a profound effect on your health.

When your gut is out of order, it is a primary cause of many non-infectious diseases such as autoimmunity, allergies, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. ​​​​​​​

  • 100 trillion microorganisms occupy your gut
  • 99% of reactions for human function are controlled by your gut. 
  • 80% of your immune tissue is found in the gastrointestinal tract.

Overwhelming scientific evidence illustrates the critical role these microbes play in both the function and dysfunction of the immune system and overall well being.

We asked Kiran why probiotics are such an important therapy for overall health. Here’s what he had to say.
