A porous intestinal lining, or Leaky Gut, allows food molecules, that would normally be too large, to pass through the intestinal lining. Once these abnormally large molecules get through, they trigger a natural defense reaction whereby the body builds antibodies to identify the larger molecule as an invader, and attack it. The result of this antigen/antibody reaction is what we call an allergy/sensitivity, and any tissue in the body can express an allergy/sensitivity. Leaky Gut Syndrome creates a cascade of events that results in increasingly more allergy/sensitivities.

Lately, I have had an unusual number of patients with UTIs in my practice. It is unusual because most people think of an infection as a strictly medical problem requiring antibiotics, and therefore would not consult with a natural practitioner like myself. I guess word of mouth must be creating these referrals, because our results are usually excellent.

Factory farm operators elect to use antibiotics on all animals, regardless of their level of health. Because of this, the animals excrete excess antibiotics and this waste enters the environment, creating large amounts of antibiotic runoff. Because of this overexposure, human, plant and animal pathogens are becoming increasingly resistant to specific antibiotics – a severe threat to the global population.

I have been railing against factory farming for the last thirty years, telling my patients and Vitamin Customers of the dangers I foresaw from the many unsound practices of the participating farms. Among those practices that I saw as being dangerous to consumer health was the massing together of huge numbers of animals in unnatural and unhealthy environments that promote disease.

The incidence of sinus and nasal infections is rising and treatment options are limited. The solution is prevention, and in that arena your nose mucous is your friend. In a recent clinical study in Switzerland, it was shown that the same treatment we use to reestablish a healthy balanced gut flora after antibiotic use is the same treatment that helps clear these antibiotic resistant bacteria from the nose and sinuses.
