Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed vital coenzyme’s stressors.


Latest Research

There is evidence that fermented milk containing multiple probiotic strains and prebiotics increases the frequency of complete bowel movements in patients with Parkinson Disease who are having issues with constipation.

Despite their strictly gluten free diet adherence, many people with Coeliac disease report that their symptoms are only partially improved by the diet. In this study, researchers looked to Candida and saccharomyces as the cause of  symptoms. Both Candida and saccharomyces were detected in 33% of the Celiac disease patients compared to 0% and 10% of the control group. More studies are needed to understand the significance of this correlation in those who have Celiac disease.

Additional studies are needed, however findings support accumulating evidence that food allergies are associated with skin infections and eczema.

Living in a farming environment during childhood is protective of developing asthma in adolescence and adulthood, as compared to living in rural non-farming or non-rural environments.

Fungal dysbiosis was associated with IBS. Fungi was found to promote visceral hypersensitivity in a rat study. They were able to reduce visceral hypersensitivity by administering fungicides, soluble β-glucans, or a spleen-associated tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Therefore intestinal fungi might be manipulated for treatment of IBS-related visceral hypersensitivity.
