Wheat Free Products May Have Wheat In Them

If you have an allergy to wheat which results in chronic diarrhea, stomach pain and bloating, you are not alone. A research study at the University of Maryland School of Medicine found the inability to digest gluten in wheat products is much more common than had been thought. Simply avoiding wheat, barley and rye will solve the problem.

However, as reported in Prevention Magazine, 20% of supermarket products labeled "wheat free" actually contained some wheat. So…if you eat a "wheat free" product and get a negative response, trust your upset gut to be telling you the truth about what's in that product and avoid it in the future. (You might also want to complain to the manufacturer that you know the truth).

Supplements That Fight Colon Cancer

The vitamin folate has been shown to stop cancers where they first start which is at the DNA level. New research from UCLA found that vitamin B6 is necessary for folate to become a more effective cancer fighter. In this study of 1,000 people, those who had colorectal polyps removed and added folate to their diets had a reduction of recurrences of 39%. With the addition of vitamin B6 the risk went down another 35%.

To stop the growth of polyps when they are discovered you need to be taking 1,200 mg per day of calcium carbonate. This study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that the people taking calcium supplements had a 2/3 reduction in growth. The most profound impact was on advanced polyps. So…make sure your multivitamin has folate and vitamin B6 in it to stop the polyp from starting and take extra calcium to stop those that start to grow.

Let's Talk More About Sambucol

It is made from elderberries, which is why you might find it under the name Elderberry. In a study researchers gave half the patients Sambucol and the rest a placebo.

Herbs That Give You An Option

Here are several herbal approaches to take to prevent or cure a cold or the flu:

1. Many studies have shown that Echinacea is an excellent cold and flu fighter. Whatever the bottle says to take, double it and take it morning and night.

While you can get Echinacea at the drugstore or health foods store,Dr. Julian Whitaker has discovered a new, highly potent form of Echinacea called Echinamide(tm).

2. Astragalus is a Chinese herb. It stimulates the immune system. You can look at using it as a preventative by using it to boost your immune system. Again, whatever the bottle says to take, double it.

With both Echinacea and Astragalus, you can start taking them before you even get the flu. This activates your immune system to operate at higher levels of effectiveness, which means you might not even get the flu.

3. There's a natural cough syrup for chest congestion that goes under two names. The brand name is Sambucol or you might find it under the herbal name Elderberry.

The Place To Start For Flu Prevention Is With Soap

Soap is the place to start for protection from the flu. Just by washing your hands for 15 seconds will wipe out most of the disease causing organisms on them. Within 5 seconds of soap hitting our skin dormant viruses and bacteria like E. Coli get caught in the soapy water. The soap also tears off the outer coating of flu viruses. It also flushes away yeast and staph.
Remember it will take 15 seconds of lathering for all of this to happen. Also, anti-bacterial soap is not the best choice as bugs can develop resistance. So…just some regular soap, thank you.
