Mycotoxins, toxic metabolites produced by mold, have adverse effects on numerous body systems, including the gastrointestinal tract. This is a topic that I have personally explored in great depth, due to my own experience with toxic mold exposure. Read on to learn how mycotoxins impact the GI tract and gut microbiota, and how you can restore your gut health post-toxic mold exposure.

The human brain is a complex organ composed of billions of neurons continuously firing electrical signals that control what we do, think, and feel. However, many people do not realize that the human body also has a “second brain!” This “second brain,” located in the gut, is often overlooked but equally important in regulating our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. Read on to learn about the gut-brain connection and how taking care of your gut can improve your mental health.

A growing body of scientific research indicates that imbalances in the gut microbiota are associated with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, and irritable bowel syndrome. To treat these health conditions, imbalances in the gut microbiota must be corrected. One way to accomplish this is by selectively feeding beneficial gut bacteria with prebiotics. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are indigestible to humans and reach the colon intact, where they serve as fuel for gut bacteria. Read on to learn about resistant starch, one special type of prebiotic fiber that has demonstrated great potential in the treatment of metabolic, digestive, and immune system disorders.

Our ancestors evolved in an environment in which life was governed by the earth’s natural rhythms, including the cycles of light and dark that characterize day and night. The interaction between our biology and the earth’s light cycles led us to develop a unique system within our bodies, the circadian system. Disruption of the circadian system predisposes us to issues such as elevated stress hormones, lowered immunity intestinal dysbiosis, and impaired brain function. Over time, health issues such as these may contribute to the development of chronic illnesses. In my own journey of recovery from Lyme disease and mold illness, repairing my disrupted circadian rhythm has helped me make significant improvements in my health. Read on to learn six simple strategies for optimizing your circadian rhythms.

Our gut bacteria serve many crucial functions in our bodies, yet they are extremely vulnerable to harm from external influences such as environmental toxins. Environmental toxins alter the composition of the gut microbiome and disrupt the important metabolic activities of gut bacteria, with significant repercussions for our health. Read on to learn about the types of toxins that harm gut bacteria, and how simple dietary and lifestyle changes can help you reduce your toxic exposures and protect your gut bacteria.
