Comforting Someone Who Has Experienced Death TCCA Providing Affordable Stuart acupuncture

One is often at a loss of words when comforting someone who has lost a loved one. In reality there are no words which can adequately make the pain go away.

The tissues of the urogenital tract (including the vagina, vulva, lower urinary tract and supporting pelvic floor structures) are rich in estrogen and androgen receptors as well as responsive to the enhanced blood flow to the genital tract that estrogen and testosterone provides, which is vital for genital sexual arousal and lubrication.

This is great news for people fighting this deadly disease. Unfortunately, aspirin use increased survival in only 15% of all colorectal cancer patients, […]

Do You Have a Health Issue or a Digestive Issue?

If your body was a three ring circus the digestive system would be the main attraction. This is because the digestive system dictates the health of all other body systems. Does this sound strange to you?  It actually should not because as we learn more about the body through research we find out more amazing ways that the digestive system, or gut, controls the health of the whole body. The gut contains 50% of the immune system in the body. The gut contains 3-4 pounds of bacteria which digest our food. The gut controls the amount of inflammation in our […]

Could Allergic Reactions Start in Your Gut?

There have been many books and articles recently, which make the claim allergic reactions start in your gut or digestive system. Even pollen and dust reactions are said to come from the gut.
