The Gut Microbiome
Hippocrates had it right 2,000 years ago: “All disease begins in the gut.”
The health of your gut is directly connected to countless other
systems throughout your body. An unhealthy gut can lead to a number of
chronic health problems, including obesity, diabetes, depression, and
many, many more. Why? It all comes down to the microbiome and gut integrity.
Your gut houses a diverse microbiome of around 100 trillion microorganisms.
A healthy gut flora offers benefits like normal digestive function,
protection against infections, a healthy, stable metabolism, and a
well-functioning immune system. If the health of that gut microbiome is
compromised, however, chronic illnesses can result. And any number of
things can disrupt the gut microbiome: common medications, stress, refined carbohydrates, and industrial seed oils can all hurt gut flora.
Your gut also has a protective function. It’s meant
to prevent foreign, potentially harmful substances from entering your
bloodstream. If your gut integrity is compromised and foreign bodies
make it into your bloodstream—as is the case with leaky gut—autoimmune
diseases like type 1 diabetes and Hashimoto’s can result.
How do we heal the gut and correct any dysbiosis? By adopting
healthy, toxin-free diets that promote gut health and taking any steps
necessary to treat intestinal pathogens, maximize digestive capacity,
and live healthy, low-stress lives.

Back to TopHeartburn and GERD
The conventional approach to treating heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, involves one thing: drugs. Even though they may offer some temporary relief, acid-suppressing drugs like proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) aren’t a permanent solution—and they carry risks of their own.
If you want real relief from your heartburn or GERD symptoms, you need to treat the underlying cause. In many cases that’s low stomach acid—no matter how counterintuitive that sounds.

Back to TopThyroid Disorders
Twenty million Americans suffer from a thyroid disorder.
The majority of them—an estimated 60 percent—aren’t even aware they
have a problem. That could be because the symptoms of an unhealthy
thyroid are wide ranging. Anything from dry skin, weight gain, and
mental slowing to hair loss, a hoarse voice, or even infertility can be
indicative of a thyroid disorder.
Those who are undergoing conventional treatment often continue
feeling those symptoms. That’s because drugs like replacement thyroid
hormone or iodine don’t address autoimmunity, the most common root cause of a thyroid disorder.
Low T3 syndrome is another common manifestation of a thyroid problem.
People with low T3 syndrome might experience symptoms that line up with
hypothyroidism, but in these cases, the issue lies with how the body
regulates the thyroid metabolism, not with the thyroid gland itself.
Whether you’re suffering from an autoimmune disorder like Hashimoto’s
or you’re experiencing symptoms due to low T3, there are functional
treatment options. Find out more.

Back to TopDiabesity and Metabolic Syndrome
You know that the obesity epidemic has reached staggering heights—more than 93 million American adults qualify as obese.
Obesity is closely tied to insulin resistance, metabolic issues, and
type 2 diabetes. These chronic diseases are so closely related, in fact,
that we can refer to them as one illness: diabesity.
Diabesity and metabolic syndrome, which is characterized by abdominal
obesity, insulin resistance, and inflammation, are entirely
preventable, and, in many cases, reversible too. But undoing the
systemic damage these conditions cause takes a different approach—one
that involves not just diet and exercise, but improving gut health and
