Hello Everyone in Natural Health Nation-
I hope that you all had a great Father’s Day weekend. If you like hot and dry, you sure did. Everyone needs to wash their cars and hang laundry out on the line so it will rain. It’s amazing to see the lawns this dry this early in the year. Makes you wonder what August will be like!
The 1st article this week is called the Gut Micro Biome May Be a Game Changer for Cancer Prevention and Treatment. It’s becoming more and more apparent that the gut flora has been ignored for years and is very important for true health and wellness. All my patients are on a gut flora repair nutrition and we watch it closely. Two big problems that come up are that the use of antibiotics kills the gut flora and throws it into a yeast overgrowth situation, and the use of high carb foods change the pH in the gut and does the same. People then have problems from constipation to irritable bowel syndrome and that leads to a whole list of problems as the body does not absorb nutrients.
The 2nd article this week is on Resistance-Not All Germs Are Created Equal. This article ties into the first one in that the discussion is on the overuse of antibiotics and what that causes-super infections. This is especially known in-hospital situations. It’s pretty easy to understand that if you kill off the weaker bacteria, the stronger ones will prevail, and these bugs have gotten good at adapting to these chemicals. Prevention and true health are the answer.
The bonus article this week talks about Fire Retardant Chemical Use Contaminating Drinking Water across the US. It’s another heads-up article on what goes on in our world that doesn’t seem to pertain to us, but it does. Drinking in all these chemicals lowers your resistance and can allow for the infections we talked about in the second article. It’s very important to be aware of what you put in your body and where it comes from. We have lots of information here at Natural Health to help explain these problems and educate our patients.
Get Healthy, Stay Healthy, and Live Well.

Heartburn and Hiatal Hernia’s
I walked in with things that ailed me for months and even years. My blood pressure has dropped increasingly. I sleep much better now. As a result, my energy is better than it has been in recent memory. My memory and thought process seems to be improving daily, a priceless gift. I’ve learned what foods cause my ailments and which help. I have found the whole staff knowledgeable, supportive and friendly. It’s just nice to have real answers to my health returning to what it should be, without pharmaceutical side effects. It has been amazing. - TM-Wheatland
