Why Dr Oz is right to talk about parasites…

If you have heartburn, bloating, gas, stomach pain or abdominal cramps, constipation or diarrhea, there’s a good chance you have parasites, or some kind of bacterial or fungal overgrowth in your gut. Stress and food intolerance can also cause these symptoms and in my experience it is usually several of these factors combined. This video from the Dr. Oz show highlights the “parasite problem”. While I don’t especially like the way Dr. Oz hypes up his TV shows, his information is usually pretty good. Watch this video and you’ll see how important the parasite problem is becoming. How do...

Foods to avoid when suffering from H pylori

Foods to avoid when suffering from H pylori… When I had H pylori, altering my diet did not really make a difference to my symptoms. I was already eating a healthy diet, yet continued to feel unwell. However, having worked with more than 2,500 clients around the world since then, I’ve come to realize that avoiding certain food when suffering from H pylori can make an enormous difference. Some people don’t improve their level of health at all unless they avoid some of the foods listed in this article and some improve their health by doing so even before...

How green veggies upset Deb’s digestion

How Deb ditched her greens for a happier gut Back in 2013 I worked with a young lady in Chicago, IL. At the time, Deb was an active, sporty person with a great career. The trouble was that she was experiencing quite a few symptoms that she felt were holding her back. One of these symptoms was diarrhea, and it’s this symptom I want to focus on in this short case study because the solution was quite counterintuitive. Are you sure all health foods are healthy? Plastered all over the Internet are assertions that certain foods are “good” and...

Are you confused about food allergy and sensitivity?...

Are you confused about what to eat and what to avoid? Experts disagree on what the healthiest diet is, and that’s because there isn’t a single diet that works perfectly for everyone. You and I most likely need to eat a different set of foods to feel and perform at our best. Put another way, what works quite well for me could make you feel awful. Why is this? One reason for this is that we are all different genetically, so it makes sense that the same diet will affect us all in different ways. Another reason for this...

How one simple food transformed Joyce’s digestion...

How food sensitivity can ruin quality of life… Joyce’s case is one of the strangest I have seen over the last decade of clinical work. Yet the solution was surprisingly simple – her symptoms were being triggered by one simple and usually innocuous food. I worked with Joyce all the way back in 2008. She contacted me because she was struggling with a lot of digestive trouble. On most days, she would have a very nasty burning sensation in her abdomen, and then pass uncomfortable loose stools. Joyce’s symptoms were running her life – she thought about her digestive...

How food sensitivity testing transformed an entire family’s health...

How home food sensitivity testing can transform health Can simple foods like eggs really cause night sweats? Can they trigger digestive symptoms, drain energy and alter mood? And can they lead to unexplained weight gain and immunity? Yes, they can. I am currently working with a family of four in France. They are Brits and Irish by trade – a fine mixture of northern European and Celtic stock. However, none of them do very well when they eat certain foods, and this blog post explains how they came to understand how specific foods were making them feel unwell. Their...

Do probiotics cure H pylori on their own or do you need antibiotics, too?...

Do probiotics cure H pylori One of our readers – Colin, from Manchester – has written in asking, ‘do probiotics cure H pylori’ Thanks, Colin: This is a great question and one I’m sure lots of people would love to know the answer to. My response is both ‘yes they can’ and ‘no they can’t’. I realize this is a weird response, so let me explain… My initial research into H pylori and probiotics In 2007-8, when I did my first batch of research to answer the ‘do probiotics cure H pylori’ question, I found quite a lot of...

Do H pylori symptoms come and go with food, sleep or hormones?...

Why do H pylori symptoms come and go? I think this is a very important question and one that is worthy of some time and thought. First, having had H pylori twice myself, and having worked with several thousand people who also had H pylori, there’s no doubt in my mind that H pylori symptoms can definitely come and go. H pylori symptoms like heartburn, acid reflux, belching and bloating can fluctuate during the course of the day and also during the course of, say, a week or even a month. There are several reasons why H pylori symptoms...
