Leaky Gut: are you a sufferer? 
This month's health focus is on "leaky gut" problems, which can manifest themselves in the form of asthma, arthritis, food allergies, ulcers, Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, autoimmune diseases, alcoholism, chronic fatigue, joint pain, migraines, diarrhea, parasitic infections, dysbiosis, candidiasis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and T-cell lymphomas.  In reality, all of us have intestinal permeability of some degree and could benefit from healing the gut through nutrients.  

Total Leaky Gut, from Nutri-West, provides a comprehensive array of nutrients to support the integrity of the intestinal lining, one of the most crucial assets to health we have.  With ingredients such as glutamine (which reinforces the immune system and has been proven to stimulate intestinal cell growth while reducing cell injury and infection), friendly bacteria Lactobacillus Bifidus, N-acetyl glucosamine, antioxidants (including Vitamins C & E, lipoic acid, zinc and ginkgo biloba), Cat's Claw, DGL and Slippery Elm, this product works great!  

Who's at risk for leaky gut symptoms? People who drink, smoke, take aspirin/ibuprofen/antibiotics/drugs, get exposed to environmental toxins, have poor digestion, sluggish liver detoxification, or stored toxins, or who have bacterial/microbial infections or inflammation are all at high risk for intestinal permeability and would benefit from Total Leaky Gut.  
Rheumatoid Arthritis: autoimmune disease that damages joints
Rheumatoid arthritis causes pain, swelling, redness, stiffness and ultimately loss of joint function to the people affected by this debilitating autoimmune disease.  Did you know that RA usually begins in people between the ages of 30-50, and is 2.5 times more common in women?  While there is presently no cure for RA, chiropractic care can help!  With regular adjustments and specific treatments like cold laser therapy and nutrition (such as adding Total Leaky Gut to their regimen), Dr. Candice can help people manage symptoms from RA much easier.  Know someone with RA?  Tell them about us and let us give them hope!
