The human body is estimated to be colonized by around 38 trillion bacteria, with the colon housing the densest and most metabolically active populations of bacteria. Having a diverse colony of bacteria has been shown to be paramount for optimal health overall, not just intestinal health.

A Ray of Hope for Moderating COVID-19 Symptoms

October 14, 2020 1:36:00 PM CEST

Sometimes, we have good news worth sharing; this is one of those cases. Upon seeing a new study promoted by CTV News, I was compelled to share it with my friends and family, particularly my elderly parents. I am very pleased to share this with Flourish readers.

Today, treatment with probiotics (from “pro‑,” meaning “for,” and “bio,” meaning “life,” hence “for-life”) has become one of the pillars of contemporary naturopathy and is a must for many gastrointestinal, rheumatological, neurological, hormonal, and mental health conditions.

However, when it comes time to choosing a probiotic that’s right for you, standing in front of shelves increasingly occupied by an array of diverse products, a question remains: Will the probiotics provided in traditional, vegetable or gelatin, capsules deliver all their claimed benefits?

How Meditation Boosts Immunity: The Evidence

April 2, 2020 1:24:35 PM CEST

By Liam LaTouche, ND

Overview of Meditation

The term “meditation” can mean different things to different people: One person may get the image of a monk sitting cross-legged silently in a monastery; another may simply consider closing their eyes at their work desk and taking a few deep breaths; while someone else may recall the chess player in the park with attention so focused, nothing could distract her.

These examples all reflect meditation in the context of how the term is used in our society today. A quick Google search will connect you with mindfulness meditation, loving kindness meditation, meditation in motion, body scans… and the list goes on. Taking this into consideration, meditation can be thought of as a group of mental and emotional training regimens used to cultivate balance and wellbeing towards a number of ends.[1]

Probiotics - the gut-brain-axis

January 23, 2020 6:01:00 AM CET

By Dr. Sarah King, ND, Toronto

The gut-brain axis essentially is the connection between the enteric nervous system and the central nervous system, including all communications between the gastrointestinal tract and the brain. Gut microbiota plays a critical role in the function of this axis as well as many other processes, from inflammatory control and immune responses to gut barrier integrity and permeability.[1] The term “gut microbiota” is used to describe the multitude of species and colonies of bacteria and yeast in the gastrointestinal tract. The composition of the gut microbiota is influenced by diet, stress, and environmental factors, and it influences the production of metabolites that help to maintain host homeostasis.[2]

Supporting a Healthy Liver

January 7, 2020 6:00:42 AM CET

By Dr. Krysten DeSouza, ND, Canada

Every organ in the body has a unique and essential role in maintaining balance in the body. The harmony that is created when they all work well together can really energize us—but can equally deplete us when offset. The liver is an integral part of health and serves as a crossroads between many systems of the body. We know the liver best for its filtration and detoxification of the blood, production of certain hormones, and creation of key proteins, but there are several smaller functions that we don’t always notice until things start to go awry. Despite all the stresses we put our bodies through, the liver is capable of withstanding tremendous trauma from alcohol, drugs, foods, or infections, and it can even regenerate when part of it is lost!
