Sinus Relief
Submitted By Terry Naturally

You wake up one day and boom! You're feeling the pain and pressure of inflamed sinuses. Right away a feeling of panic hits; but wait, there is something you can do to find relief!

Have you ever heard the expression, "I need that like I need a hole in the head?" Well, it turns out that we really do need holes in our heads. Our "holes" are the four connected pairs of hollow, air-filled cavities in our skull called sinuses. These sinuses are located over the eyes in the forehead, between the eyes, below the eyes behind the cheekbones, and near the center of the head. 

In some ways, sinuses are a mystery; scientists still haven't unlocked the secrets to all of their functions. But, we do know that the sinuses may help insulate the skull, allow our voices to resonate, humidify and warm the air we breathe, and help to reduce the weight of the skull. Whatever their purpose is, they sometimes can be a pain—especially when you end up with a sinus infection or sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses and nasal passages)! 

How Sinuses Should Work
Healthy sinuses are lined with tiny, hair-like projections called cilia. Read more

Experience the Healing Benefits of Essential Oils
Contributed by Ancient Apothecary

Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants that are highly concentrated, with a strong aroma and tremendous healing properties. By concentrating the oils of these plants, you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant and turning it into a single oil. They are typically created through the process of distillation, which separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant by steaming. 

For over 5,000 years, many different cultures have used these healing plant oils for a variety of health conditions. Essential oils are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed, or root of a plant or tree—and just one drop can have powerful health benefits. Using essential oils for healing purposes is often called aromatherapy, which is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental, and emotional health. 

There are four ways to benefit from the healing effects of essential oils:
1. Topically—Essential oils have a very small size and possess the chemical weight of less than 1000m (m=weight of molecule). According to scientific testing, any substance with a molecular weight below 1000m should be absorbed by the skin. This means that essential oils are able to penetrate the skin, pass into the blood stream, and into different areas of the body for internal therapeutic benefits. Read more

New Research: Unique Probiotic Strain May Reduce Depression in IBS Patients
By Jen Morganti, Naturopathic Doctor (ND) & NEEDS Education Director

The most up-to-date research has revealed an important connection between the gut and brain, leading to new approaches for treating cognitive and mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. The lining of the gut houses the "enteric nervous system", which reacts to emotions like stress. When the "microbiome", the healthy bacterial environment of the GI, is not balanced it can influence the brain.

A recent study evaluated the effect of the probiotic Bifidobacterium longum on symptoms of depression in patients with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). IBS is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder with varying symptoms, such as constipation and/or diarrhea, cramps, bloating, and gas. The causes are unknown, but some integrative physicians believe it is related to an imbalance of the GI microbiome, food allergies, or possibly increased stress. Some patients with IBS find relief by taking fiber, enzymes, probiotics, and/or eliminating potentially reactive foods from their diet.

Improve Insulin Sensitivity in Pre-Diabetic Individuals
Submitted By Pure Encapsulations

New clinical trial shows uniquelyderived strawberry and cranberry polyphenols may improve insulin sensitivity for people with pre-diabetes. Researchers at the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods (INAF) at Laval University have found a potential new approach to help people with pre-diabetes stave off the progression of this chronic disease. 

In a study from the British Journal of NutritionGlucoPhenol®, a proprietary blend of cranberry and Orléans strawberry extracts, produced significant improvements in insulin sensitivity among non-diabetic, insulin-resistant adults. Globally, 415 million adults are living with type 1 diabetes and these numbers are projected to grow to 592 million by 2035— affecting one in every ten adults. According to the most recent data from the American Diabetes Association, in the United States alone, an estimated 29.1 million adults have diabetes, while another 86 million are classified as type 2 pre-diabetic. Read more
