Why should I take a probiotic? And what should I look for in probiotics for the best result?

With research and better understandings of the connections of the gut microbiome accumulating, there are, in our opinion, more and more substantial reasons to take a multi-strain probiotic on a daily basis. Research is filling in the complex mystery of the physiological connections between the bacteria in our intestines and the rest of the systems of our body.

Excerpt: "This is not to say influenza vaccines have no proven benefit.

No evidence exists, however, to show that this reduction in risk of symptomatic influenza f

Auricular acupuncture as a treatment for pregnant women who have low back and posterior pelvic pain:

We wanted to share a compelling study (click to download entire research paper) with you all, showing efficacy of ear acupuncture in treating low back pain and posterior pelvic pain in pregnant women. It was performed at the Center for the Advancement of Perioperative Health at Yale-New Haven Hospital after obtaining approval from the Human Investigation Committee at Yale University School of Medicine. It was done primarily due to the prevalence of Pregnancy-related low back and posterior pelvic pain (PRLP) (up to 2 million women affected by PRLP annually), and an obvious need for additional, safe, and effective treatments that are non-drug and non-invasive. The importance of treating acut
