The doctors told me to take this prescription drug and oh yeah, you will probably have this disease for the rest of your life so learn to live with it and you may even need your colon removed some day. I struggled and got chronically worse over the years to the point that my inflammation in my gut was exacerbating my low back issue. That is what led me to Josh..."READ MORE TESTIMONIALS »

What is gluten?: Gluten is an amorphous mixture of ergastric (i.e., non-living) proteins found combined with starch in the endosperm of some cereals, notably wheat, rye, and barley. It constitutes about 80% of the proteins contained in wheat, and is composed of the proteins gliadin and glutenin. Gluten is responsible for the elasticity of kneaded dough, which allows it to be leavened, as well as the “chewiness” of baked products like bagels. It is the glutenins (specifically, low molecular weight glutenins) that are especially critical to gluten quality.What contains gluten?: Gluten is pretty much in every grain that you can think of eating except rice, buckwheat, corn, and oats (some think it does have it and other research shows that it does not). There are other grains that are gluten free, but most are very uncommon and most Americans do not eat them. Who is intolerant to gluten?: Gluten intolerance … Continue Reading

Check this out! I have educated many clients about this, done many talks on this and have unfortunately played the “prove and defend” game with many ND’s, Chiro’s and the like. Once again these are just my experiences from working with people with thyroid issues and finding out that the thyroid is usually the byproduct of an adrenal issue, estrogen dominance issue, low progesterone issue, high prolactin issue and so forth. http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/adrenal-info/

I have treated many female clients that end up with urinary incontinence after delivering their baby. From being pregnant, your “core” muscles lengthen and become inhibited (loss of inability to do their job, which is to stabilize the low back and hold the organs in). This is one reason why women loose bladder control (part of the inner unit is the pelvic floor, which regulates this). As well, when these muscles lengthen, the organs “hang off” the ligaments and push down on the bladder, this is another reason why most women have loss of bladder control. If these muscles are still lengthened and the organs are still “hanging” of ligaments, then you will continue to have this issue. The largest issue is from getting an episiotomy, which completely shuts off the pelvic floor. At the same time, the scar tissue that is built up is the roadblock in this situation … Continue Reading
