As I’m eating and reading the Wall Street Journal headlines, I hear a story on the radio. An NPR [...]
The people at Embria Health Science just shared with me this month some findings from a laboratory study at the University of Ghent (Belgium) on EpiCor and how it may work in the gut. The project examined EpiCor samples that were applied to a human digestive system “simulator.” This is a process is used as [...]
The radio story is called Anatomy of an Allergy Attack. It gives a nice overview of how seasonal allergy reactions work. The story nicely describes the immune system’s role in an allergy episode:
“He (a doctor interviewed in the story) says that an allergic response is sort of a false alarm. Like an army launching [...]
I written here before about how cunning and nasty bacteria are. We all know about how they can morph into something new that resist antibiotics. But that ain’t nothing. New research from the University of Pennsylvania has mapped out a sort of game plan that bacteria use inside the mucous membranes of the nose. This [...]
Today I give you two very good papers on inflammation. Here is one. And here is the other. Why? Cell and tissue inflammation is a fundamental marker of:
many chronic conditions and; immune response that is out of balance.

We’ve written in this blog about sugar and its impact on immune health. Besides being a diabetes risk, high blood sugar can also weaken immune system performance, dampening aggressive immune response when your body needs it, and disrupting healthy immune balance. Connected to this sugar topic is the “glycemic index.” This is a numeric rating [...]
