Your FARTS: 3 things they are telling you
Farts can be a little embarrassing at times, but they are obviously a natural part of life and digestion. Some people find them funny, and some people find them gross, but they're all a part of natural digestion. In today's blog, we will look at what causes farts, and what those farts might be telling you about your health...
3 things your farts are telling you about your health (new article)
Digestive Trick to Clean Out Your Bowels:
We’ve been told our whole lives to eat lots of fruits, veggies, and whole grains to stay healthy.
However, according to Dr. Steven Gundry — a world-renowned heart surgeon — many of the so-called “health foods” in our diets actually contain a harmful toxin that could be expanding your waistline.
“This nasty toxin can rip tiny tears throughout your entire gut lining,” says Dr. Gundry. “This then allows harmful bacteria and waste products to seep into your bloodstream and wreak havoc on your body.”
Today, new research shows this common affliction is currently affecting millions of people nationwide. The common warning signs include fatigue, digestive discomfort, weight gain, brain fog, achy joints, tired muscles, and sometimes even skin problems.
“These common health problems are often mistaken as normal signs of getting older,” explains Dr. Gundry. “But I can assure you, the harm caused by this little-known toxin is far from normal.”
The good news is, this problem can easily be fixed at home. “It’s very simple, you just have to know which foods are actually healthy, and which foods contain this hidden toxin,” explains Dr. Gundry. By simply eliminating this toxin, he has seen thousands of his own patients achieve remarkable turnarounds. (In fact, he even lost 70lbs himself and has kept the weight off ever since.) Now, after years of research, Dr. Gundry has decided to release a short video to the public — free and uninterrupted — showcasing exactly which foods you and your loved ones should avoid.
“Our health is our greatest gift,” he explains. “So if this video helps people look better and feel better, I’m thrilled to be of service.”
The video has since gone viral, first being shared by users on Facebook, then being featured on news sites like ABC and CBS.
So far, the comments and feedback have been encouraging, with thousands of Americans feeling better than they have in decades.

Dr. Gundry also serves as the personal physician to many A-list celebrities.
Most notable of which include legendary self-help guru Tony Robbins, Academy Award-winning actor Alan Arkin, Grammy Award-winning singer Usher, and countless Fortune 500 executives.
But you don’t have to be a celebrity to look and feel better using the tips in this video.
There’s just one thing Dr. Gundry asks from his viewers:
“If watching this helps you take control of your weight, increase your energy, ease gas and bloating, or find relief from stiff, achy joints… then please consider sharing this video with your loved ones at some point. Because together, we can help as many people as possible avoid these frustrating health issues.”
How to get rid of puffy eyes...
Puffiness and Dark Circles under the eyes is an indication of toxins the body can’t process. The best, most permanent way to correct skin inflammation or dark circles from the eyes is to remove the toxins from the liver and kidneys.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. There are thousands of harmful chemicals out there to help us look our best. Unfortunately, those chemicals must be processed by the liver and kidneys. What most people don’t understand is that a cover-up, even a “natural” one is only a band-aid.
The skin is the window or mirror to the internal organs. When we have dark circles or age spots, this is from toxins the liver or kidneys can’t eliminate and sends these toxins to the skin for storage. Remember when you were a kid and asked Grandma what the spots were on her hands?
She would tell you they were liver spots. She was right. We’ve just updated the word to be more politically correct to “age spots” and “sun spots”.
Have you ever wondered why women tend to age faster than men?
Men, on average use 5-7 products a day: shampoo, soap, aftershave or cologne, deodorant. Women are an easy sell for makeup, skin care products, perfume, lotions, creams, gels, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, hair products – twice the chemicals that man use daily. This promotes aging because our bodies are inundated with chemicals.
We must go back to basics, learn how to effectively remove these chemicals from our environment and understand that we can use other things for soft skin, and radiant hair. We don’t have body odor if we’re eating the best foods and cleaning our bodies from the inside out.
This is not a new concept. For centuries many cultures and religions have integrated cleansing as common practice and rituals. Detoxification doesn’t have to be difficult. However, it can be life changing.
Our health and our planet are too important to destroy with these increasingly harmful toxins.
The Influence of Colonic Irrigation on Human Intestinal Microbiota by Yoko Uchiyama-Tanaka
"It has been documented that the intestinal tract is inhabited by more than 1012 bacterial cells per gram of dry matter (Hayashi et al., 2002a; Langendijk et al., 1995; Suau et al., 1999), which is comprised of an estimated 400 to 500 bacterial species (Moor & Holdeman, 1974). The composition and activities of the indigenous intestinal microbiota are of paramount importance in human immunity, nutrition, and pathological processes, and therefore, the health of the individual (Van der Waaij et al., 1971). It is well established that the intestine is an important site of local immunity, and recent reports have suggested that it is a major site of extrathymic T cell differentiation (Cerf-Bensussan et al., 1985; Guy-Grand et al., 1991; Iiai eta al., 2002; Uchiyama-Tanaka, 2009). Numerous activated and quiescent lymphocytes are produced within gut-associated lymphatic tissues (GALT), such as Peyer’s patches (Takahashi et al., 2005). Thus, it has been speculated that people who suffer from constipation and who harbor fecal residues in the intestine may have decreased local immune system function. Colonic irrigations referred to as a colonics are a type of colonic hydrotherapy performed using an instrument in combination with abdominal massage, but without drugs or mechanical pressure. I previously reported that colonic irrigation may induce lymphocyte transmigration from GALT into the circulation, which may improve the functions of both the colon and immune system (Uchiyama-Tanaka, 2009). Colonic irrigation was developed about 40 years ago and no serious complications associated with its use have been reported. However, the impact of this method, which use a large amount of water, on the intestinal microbiota and serum electrolytes remains unknown. In this study, colonic irrigations were performed 3 times for each of the 10 subjects with no history of malignant or inflammatory disease."

Colonic Irrigations: A Review of the Historical Controversy and the Potential for Adverse Effects
by Douglas G. Richards, Ph.D., David L. McMillin, M.A., Eric A. Mein, M.D., Carl D. Nelson, D.C.
"Colonic irrigations enjoy widespread popularity in the alternative medicine community, while being viewed with considerable skepticism by the conventional medical community. The medical objections include a belief that scientific research has proven that colonics are not effective therapy, and that they pose a high risk of serious adverse effects (e.g., infection, perforation of the wall of the colon) (Ernst, 1997). Furthermore there is a concern that those administering colonics are primarily unlicensed, non-medical practitioners who make exaggerated claims of health benefits, “quacks” (Barrett, 2004; Jarvis, 2004). Our interest arose from the need for information on the safety and efficacy of colonics for informed consent for clinicians and researchers. We found that there is very little information on either the safety or efficacy of colonic irrigations, and that modern sources have not addressed the historical debate among medical professionals."

The International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy has a great article on the value of colon hydrotherapy which was verified by medical professionals.
"From the signal stage of history surrounding ancient Egypt, practices of colon hydrotherapy in their most basic form – enemas or clysters – have provided people with internal cleansings adjunctive to their personal external hygiene. The Ebers Papyrus, from the 14th century BC prescribes internal cleansing for no less than twenty stomach and intestinal complaints."
