This is why I developed GOOD GUT products for people with autoimmune diseases. Chronic disease begins in your gut. Your genes and gut bacteria contribute to the creation of autoimmune conditions. Gut health is the key to your overall health.
Feel like you can't leave home because of fecal incontinence? Many older people have urinary incontinence, but bowel leakage has a huge impact on the quality of your life. It's embarrassing to talk about anal leakage with your family, friends and even your doctor. Thanks to new data there is a great new old first-line treatment that is even better than a pharmaceutical drug. Here's the new scoop on poop.
As a practitioner and human at large I love the intestinal microbiome. I plan on balancing it, preserving the good, better and best bacteria and undoing the detrimental medical campaigns to eliminate life-supporting bacteria. Bacteria sustains our life force.

As an intestinal microbiome devotee and professional in the field, I am constantly spreading the word about the importance of microbial diversity in the gut.

Celiac disease affects one in 133 Americans.
It is four times more common today and 80% of individuals with celiac go undiagnosed or wrongly diagnosed for years. Celiac and other autoimmune diseases; lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease are all linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Do you have celiac disease and don't know it?
Is there a connection? Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden think so because they found people with celiac disease were more likely to have used antibiotics in the year before their diagnosis.
Celiacs were more likely to have been prescribed multiple courses of antibiotics.
Your health starts in your gut.
