Autism, the Biome and Potential Treatments

Fist pump!  A paper that actually presents information that can help people who are sick!  Woopa! As promised, here is a summary of that fantastic article[i] about autism and the biome that I discovered on Dr. MacFabe’s new website.  I’ve ranted enough over the…

A Big Day for the Biome Buzz!

Ok…I am a little googly-eyed today.  Not a screaming and fainting at the sight of the Beatles kind of hysteria –a more a refined, intellectual, only-slightly-girly kind of fandom.  🙂 So here is my embarrassing confession for the day: only once in my life…

New Research on the Microbiome and IBD

I recently spotted this article[i] on research coming out of the University of North Carolina:  “UNC cancer researchers find potential treatment for inflammatory bowel diseases.”  (Now, not that I am obsessing on Dr. Mercola’s article from last week or anything but I admit, this…

March 22: A Day for More Brooding

I have always been a brooder.  My brain pretty much never shuts down anyway, and once I latch onto something that upsets me, I’m like a pit bull – I don’t let go.  So what am I still contemplating?  (Actually, better said…fuming over?)  Yes,…

ALS, Icebuckets and the Gut Biome

Uh oh…I’m in a Mood Again!

Sometimes I am 100% convinced that the world has gone crazy.  (Actually, every day I am convinced of that.  But some days it just boils over for me…) Now, you may think that someone who finds intestinal organisms utterly fascinating is a big one…

Interesting Bits and Pieces about the Mycobiome

I found a new article[i] yesterday on the mycobiome (yeast).  To sum it up – we know next-to-nothing about what comprises a healthy one.  🙂 There were a few very interesting items in it that deserve mention: I already knew that there were differences…

Loads More Research on the Microbiome and the Brain

There have been a few amazing articles on the biome and health in the last few days. A new study[i] just came out of Canada on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).  They were looking to see whether or not the gut bacteria from humans with…

More on Alzheimer’s…because I so don’t want anyone to get it

I have written before about the evils of a diet high in sugar, and right now, I guess with my Grandmother’s birthday last week bringing her so often to mind, I’m on a dementia roll. So,  following on the heels of my recent post…
