The Power of Probiotics

“Good” bacteria?

Deep inside our intestines, there’s a complex microbial ecosystem, known as the “gut flora” which we now know contains nearly a thousand species of bacteria which may affect our overall health in unimaginable ways!

It has long been recognized that our gastrointestinal system relies heavily on these gut flora or “good bacteria”.  They exert a pronounced effect on the nutrients and energy that get pulled out of food. In fact, these bacteria are thought to play a big role in a slew of health conditions, including combating obesity, diabetes, infections, lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, high cholesterol, and even colon cancer. There are many theories as to how these bacteria confer their positive benefits such as an anti-inflammatory effect for the body, increased immunity and therefore healing power after an infection, and even the power to fight off potential cancer cells in a microenvironment by competing for the same nutrients.

Aspirin Can Significantly Aid in Colorectal Cancer Discovery

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

It’s been all over the news in recent days. For years aspirin has been a tried and true way to help prevent heart attacks and heart disease, but new data is coming to light that could increase the intake of aspirin further. It’s being discovered that a low daily dose of aspirin, in addition to its heart healthy benefits, can significantly reduce the chance of many types of cancer from developing, most notably colorectal cancer.

According to a wide variety of sources, prolonged, low-dose daily use can actually enhance detection of early warning signs of colorectal cancer. The detection of blood in the stool (fecal occult blood) is vital in detecting colorectal cancers early. Up until very recently it was believed that aspirin could in fact skew the results, leaving physicians with an uncertain assessment of an individual’s cancer development.

Preventing Colon Cancer – The Proper Steps

Monday, March 29th, 2010

March is, as it is every year, Colorectal Cancer prevention month. It’s at this time that we should take a few minutes to sit down (provided you’re hemmoroid free) and review your gastrointestinal health. Each year roughly 150,000 people suffer from Colon Cancer nationwide, though in many of those documented cases preventing fully developed cancer of the colon could have been a routine and relatively easy undertaking.

Most people will, at some point or another, develop polyps along the inner lining of their colon. Polyps are small, benign, non-malignant, pre-cancerous growths that if given time to develop promote the spread of cancer. So what can we do to counteract this seemingly inevitable polyp growth? Well, the answer is shockingly simple and astoundingly effective.

Dr. Scott Tenner is the nation’s leading advocate of colon cancer screening legislation, not to mention a fantastic gastroenterologist in his own right. He sits down with Dr. Conrad Fischer to discuss just how deadly colon cancer is in our country and the steps people can take to prevent the fatal illness from ever even developing. His optimism in the face of one of deadliest diseases is refreshing and somewhat reassuring.
