Probiotics and Antibiotics Create a "Killer Combination"

"I think probiotics can be something that may revolutionize wound treatment in the future. With our work, we have expanded the application possibilities of probiotics." -- Zhihao Li

(Cambridge, MA) – In the fight against drug-resistant bacteria, MIT researchers have enlisted the help of beneficial bacteria known as probiotics.

In a new study, the researchers showed that by delivering a combination of antibiotic drugs and probiotics, they could eradicate two strains of drug-resistant bacteria that often infect wounds. To achieve this, they encapsulated the probiotic bacteria in a protective shell of alginate, a biocompatible material that prevents the probiotics from being killed by the antibiotic.

"There are so many bacteria now that are resistant to antibiotics, which is a serious problem for human health. We think one way to treat them is by encapsulating a live probiotic and letting it do its job," says Ana Jaklenec, a research scientist at MIT's Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research and one of the senior authors of the study...

5 Natural Ways to Avoid Loose Skin After Weight Loss

Oct 19, 2018
Dr. Don Colbert

It’s all about collagen.

As you get older, it’s common to notice your skin getting thinner, less supple, and looser or saggier. You might also notice thinning hair or more ridges on your nails. When this happens, it means you’re losing an important component in skin health: collagen.

Here’s why it matters:

  • Collagen is a protein found in your skin, connective tissues, cartilage, bones, muscles, and even your blood vessels.

  • Along with elements like elastin and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), collagen is what keeps skin health, hydrated, and even and unblemished.

  • After the age of 20, you start making about one percent less collagen in your skin each year as a normal part of the aging process.

  • As you lose this collagen, skin can become more fragile, thinner, and more prone to sagging and wrinkles.

If you lose weight, especially a large amount later in life, it’s common to experience sagging or loose skin after weight loss. This could be noticeable in your face as well as other places...

Overcoming Infertility

Oct 18, 2018
Dr. Corinne Weaver

“I’m pregnant,” exclaimed one of my patients last week. What a happy statement! She had been trying to get pregnant for years. I met her last year, and at that time she didn’t want to do chiropractic. She wanted me to do some functional blood testing and give her a recommended healing plan. I did just that. However, after a year of cleaning up her diet and taking the supplements her body needed, she still could not get pregnant. Later, she asked me what else she could do. I told her to try upper cervical chiropractic for four months. After two months of specific chiropractic care, I am happy to announce she is pregnant. Although I am an infertility expert, I can tell you I have helped many women get pregnant by helping their body heal.

 

What exactly is infertility?

Infertility, according to Women’s Health, is not being able to get pregnant within one year of trying, or within six months of trying in women over 35. Women unable to stay pregnant may also be considered infertile (Office of Women’s Health, 2018). There are many factors to getting pregnant, as Women’s Health describes on their website:
