Prebiotics & Probiotics For Your Gut Health

Last year I started experiencing the odd bout of anxiety.  This was a particularly foreign feeling to me, so I had a sense that something in my body wasn’t quite right.  Around the same time, I observed both digestive issues (bloating, general discomfort) and brain fog/memory loss and was subsequently tested for a Candida overgrowth.  Testing positive I was put on a diet to improve my gut health and each of the above symptoms disappeared, including the anxiety.

It’s fascinating isn’t it, how our bodies have a way of telling us exactly what we need to know?

Is it time then to consider your own gut health?

Your gut health is critical!

The health of your gut is extremely important to your overall well-being.  It’s a place where a whole lot is going on, and rightly so – it has a profound impact on far more than how much dessert you can fit in after dinner.  So much so in fact that the gut is often referred to as the “second brain“.

This is because it’s responsible for some very critical functions in your digestive and immune systems.  The presence of what’s called “good bacteria” actually enhance your health, greatly improving things like your hormone regulation, nutrient absorption, digestion, immune system strength and your body’s ability to eliminate toxins.

As we now know, the gut also influences your mental health.  The gut contains an Enteric Nervous System that communicates with your Central Nervous System, which triggers mood changes.  It means depression, anxiety, memory loss, and other cognitive functions can all be caused by your gut.

All disease begins in the gut.
– Hippocrates.

Don’t you find that refreshing?   

The notion that by simply changing what you put on the end of your fork (or spoon) each day you can better your mental health?  

 The good news is that it’s quite easy to maintain a healthy gut and keep all of these bodily functions in tip-top shape.  

The answer?  Increase your levels of good bacteria.
How do you do that?  With Probiotics.

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are microorganisms found in bacteria, yeast, and fungi that keep your digestive system happy and running at its best.  It’s the good bacteria I’ve been talking about that your gut needs to keep everything running smoothly.

If you’ve ever seen an advertisement for yogurt where they talk about how much good bacteria it contains, they’re talking about Probiotics.  These “living” bacteria are generally found in cultured or fermented foods.  Apart from yogurt, this includes things like buttermilk, aged cheeses, sourdough bread, miso, tempeh, and the drink Kombucha.

Next time you look at a tub of yogurt, look out for guys like Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium Lactis – they’re your friendly neighborhood Probiotics.

Using Probiotics helps you to:

  • Boost your body’s immune system by protecting it against harmful bacteria
  • Assist you to digest and process your food without bloating or gas
  • Restore your body’s natural balance after a stint on antibiotics, which tend to kill a lot of good bacteria in your system
  • Help your body absorb all the nutrients and good stuff it needs from what you eat


To improve your gut health, consume Probiotic foods like the above 1-2 times a day, and/or take a daily supplement.  You should start to see an improvement in a week or two.

What About Prebiotics?

Prebiotics, on the other hand, are non-digestible food fibers found in specific foods that give good bacteria (like those Probiotics) a helping hand to be more effective.

If you imagine Probiotics are plants, then Prebiotics are the soil.  They provide a stimulating environment that helps the good bacteria grow and have a bigger impact on your digestive tract.  For Probiotics to do their thing, they need a healthy level of Prebiotics around to feed them.

Prebiotic foods are a little easier to include in a healthy diet than Probiotic foods (in my opinion), so to improve your gut health I would recommend trying to incorporate them into your eating naturally, before looking at supplements. Combining Probiotic and Prebiotic-rich foods in your diet can allay many mental and physical health-related issues and support your health and well-being long-term.  Perhaps this is the prompt you need to make your gut health a priority.

Here is a list of foods that are rich in Prebiotic goodness:


Jerusalem artichokes

Skin of apples

Onions, leeks, and celery


Chicory Root

Rye, barley and whole oats

Gingivitis Natural Remedies

Gums are red, swollen, and often bleeding; may be caused from bacteria. Also called trench mouth. Symptoms include boils or cankers and bad breath. Medical treatment uses antibiotics (with side effects).

Natural observation is that the gums are related to diet, hygiene, mineral deficiencies and hormonal disturbances, especially for women during pregnancy.


Herbs for Gingivitis

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Choose one or more of the following herbs to use in a mouthwash:

Myrrh tincture – strengthens the gums and kills bacteria

Sage – tightens gums

White oak bark – to tighten gums (tea – boil 10 minutes)

Calendula – use as a tea or tincture to heal tissue, or kill bacteria

Make this herbal formula for gingivitis, or use any of the following singly:

2 parts Nettle leaves – anti-inflammatory and mineral rich
1 part   Red raspberry leaves – rich in minerals, tightens gums
1 part   Sage leaves – healing
1 part   Rosemary leaves – circulation
2 parts White oak bark – to tighten the gums

Mix together and steep 1 heaping teaspoon in 8 ounces of boiled water for ten minutes to make a tea (drain herbs), or put dried powdered herbal combination in capsules (taking 2, 3 times a day), or take 1 teaspoon of mixture daily.

Cell Salts to Help Gingivitis

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

Whooping Cough Natural Remedies

Whooping cough is an airway inflammation and infection caused by the Bordetella pertussis bacteria. Mostly in adults it acts like a cough which lasts for up to 3 months. In small children whooping cough can be life threatening as they can’t cough up mucus effectively. Then there is the characteristic “whoop” as a coughing fit. Besides the exposure to someone who has whooping cough, I suspect a weakened immune system plays a part in contracting the bacteria.

Exposure to others coughing while carrying whopping cough can lead to an incubation period of 4 to 15 days; the next stage of whooping cough is the mucus and spasmodic stage where we see the “whoop” or coughing fits mostly at night with the face turning red with the coughing episodes. The final stage, or resolution stage, happens when one recovers lung function and breathing and reduces mucus capacity. There may be other respiratory issues such as pneumonia.

Medical treatment for whooping cough includes vaccination, multiple times; some have reported no significant help. Antibiotics can be useful in the first week or two if whooping cough is recognized early. After that, antibiotics are often ineffective. Steroids may be used for coughing spasms while other cough medications can make symptoms worse.

From the natural perspective whooping cough has been treated successfully by homeopathics and herbs for many decades. In small children, use standard medical treatment or hospitalization if you feel the symptoms are not yet responding or you feel uncomfortable. You can still use natural treatments with prescription medication to good effect. Natural treatments may also be used preventatively to strengthen the immune system.

Diet – most children lose their appetite during the first stage and will gain appetite on their own timeline and terms; this will keep their mucus to a minimum.

One natural supplement to boost the immune system is Zinc; in children 10 mg of a liquid, and up to 100 mg a day for adults.


Herbs for Whooping Cough

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a combination of the following herbs for whooping cough in capsule or powder for maximum benefit, and adjust as your condition improves. This formula can be used in all of the stages. Use equal parts of each. You may use it every hour when needed. Therapeutic dose is equal to one capsule of each herb or 1 liquid dropper full of an herbal tincture 3 times a day. Use a glycerin extract for small children or capsules for adults.

Thyme herb is antimicrobial and protects the lungs as well as soothing the respiratory tract; dries mucus.

Elecampane is an herb for whooping cough which acts as a mucus decongestant.

Echinacea herb boosts the immune system and acts as and antimicrobial to help with whooping cough.

Add Cramp bark herb for spasms during whooping cough as needed.

Cell Salts to Help with Whooping Cough

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

#5 Kali mur 6X – lung support, whit mucus, medium fevers; asthma with digestive problems
#7 Kali sulph 6X – rattling mucus in lungs, yellow mucus, medium fevers, weepy
#12 Silicea 6X – shortness of breath, emphysema; chronic colds settle in chest; delicate constitution, feels cold

Whooping Cough Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic natural medicines safe for everyone including infants and pregnant or nursing women. You may use 6X, 30X, 6C or 30C potencies.

Most children’s herbal books also recommend homeopathics as they are very effective.

Use Pertussin 30c once a day if you suspect whooping cough is in your area or neighborhood. It is both preventative and helpful used with other indicated homeopathic remedies, cell salts and herbs. Use the most indicated remedy for whooping cough for your situation.

Drosera (#1 Homeopathic Remedy for Whooping Cough) – nervous; violent spasmodic cough; worse at night with nausea or vomiting; mucus sometimes blood streaked; perspires upon awakening; feels better moving; wheezing cough; worse around midnight.

Best Homeopathic Remedies for Whooping Cough
according to Jahr’s Clinical Guide 1850

In the first period, period of incubation

Dulcamara: moist cough from the commencement, with easy expectoration and hoarseness, and when the cough was brought on by taking cold.

Pulsatilla: moist cough from the first with vomiting of mucus of the ingesta or mucous diarrhea.

In the spasmodic period, with vomiting and bleeding from nose and mouth

Cuprum: the body becomes rigid during the paroxysm, with arrest of breathing and loss of consciousness; vomiting after the paroxysms and rattling of mucus in the chest between the paroxysms. (After cupr, veratrum is frequently suitable.)

Drosera (top remedy if nothing else): excessive violence of the paroxysms, wheezing cough,; no fever or else high fever with chills and heat, thirst only after the chills, the sweat is rather hot then cool, and sometime sets in only at night; aggravation during rest, relief form motions. Drosera is generally the best remedy for fully developed whooping-cough, with vomiting of food or mucus and bleeding from the mouth and nose. (After dros, veratrum is sometimes suitable.)

The convulsive form of whooping-cough is not always fully developed, and it frequently happens that, at a period when the whooping-cough is epidemic, children are seized with a spasmodic cough which is without a great many of the characteristic symptoms of whooping-cough

Belladonna: cerebral irritation of the cough is preceded by a painful sensation in the region of the stomach, with bleeding of the nose and mouth, or ecchymosis in the eye; or when other spasmodic symptoms such as tetanus, convulsive asthma etc are present or when the paroxysms terminate in sneezing.
Bryonia: the paroxysms set in principally in the evening or at night, or after eating or drinking with loss of breath, want of air, and vomiting of the ingesta.

Mercurius: cough only at night or only in the daytime, two paroxysm succeeding each other closely, and separated from the next two paroxysms by a longer interval or repose; or suitable for the real whooping cough, when the children, during the vomiting bleed profusely from the nose and mouth, with profuse sweat at night and great nervousness; especially when the children are affected with worm and are liable to convulsions. (The last mentioned symptoms sometimes require Carb-veg after Merc.)

If the convulsive period has run its course, and catarrhal symptoms remain

Carbo-veg: the catarrhal cough frequently becomes spasmodic, or the vomiting keeps up though the other symptoms of whooping-cough have disappeared.

Hepar: the cough abates, but is hacking, dry and rough with desire to vomit after the paroxysms, and frequent weeping.

Although we have distinguished whooping-cough into stages, yet it must not be supposed that the remedies which have been respectively indicated for the different stages cannot be used for any other; on the contrary, many of the remedies which we have mentioned for the spasmodic stage may in many cases be required in the precursory stage and vice versa.

Let it be remembered that the selection of a remedy does not depend upon the name of the disease, but upon the symptoms, the pathological character of the disease and the state of the person.
