Breaking news: Bacteria help kids stay healthy! In a study published this month in the Journal of Pediatrics, scientist found that daily probiotics help toddlers avoid certain infections. Researchers enrolled 300 children, ages 6 months to 36 months, in day care centers in a double-blinded study. Half of the children received placebos and half received probiotics.

For the children who received probiotics, it was found that there was a reduction in frequency and duration of diarrhea episodes. And surprisingly, there was also a reduction in respiratory tract infections in the children who took probiotics.

The children in the study received the probiotic Lactobaccillus reuteri daily for three months. In addition to the already-mentioned health benefits, the study found a reduction in the number of doctor visits, antibiotic use, absenteeism from day school and parental absenteeism from work.

Other studies on probiotics have found that probiotics may help in reducing acute diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, atopic eczema, tooth decay, C. diff. bacteria colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, including pouchitis.

So what is this miracle drug? Probiotics are live microorganisms numbering over 100 trillion, including over 500 bacterial species, which normally reside in the human intestinal tract. These microorganisms help in digestion, provide the body with nutrients, help the immune system and help keep harmful microorganisms in check.

Common probiotics are Lactobacillus bulgaris, Streptococcus thermophiles, Lactobacillus acidophilus and casei, and Bifidobacteria. One can maintain a healthy balance of these “good bacteria” in the body by taking products which contain live and active cultures of these bacteria. These can include the pill and liquid probiotic supplements, as well as foods such as yogurt, and fermented foods such as brewer’s yeast, miso, sauerkraut or micro algae.

If you need additional nondairy yogurt options, yogurts made from rice, soy and coconut milk are available on the market. Some of these can contain added probiotics that provide the same benefits as regular yogurt. To ensure that you are getting the benefit of the probiotics in the foods that you are eating, pick those that state “live and active cultures” on the label. Also look for supplements that are not close to their expiration date, as the live bacteria dwindle over time.

Adam Dreamhealer holds ‘Integrative Healing workshops‘ around the world promoting what he sees as the most overlooked aspect in preventative health care today: involving the patient in their own health care by using their focused healing intentions. At his workshop events, participants experience self-empowerment as Adam merges the auras of all present and performs two unique group energy treatments. He gives everyone present, the tools to activate their own innate healing power. Forty percent of those who attend Adam’s one-day workshops are healthcare professionals learning how to integrate Adam’s techniques into their practices. Rolling Stone Magazine calls Adam “One of the world’s most in-demand healers”.

Adam Dreamhealer is a graduate in Molecular Biology and biochemistry, healer, best-selling author, speaker and teacher of self-empowerment. It is well known that a positive attitude promotes healing. This knowledge is a basic survival instinct and just needs to be activated in order to maximize its effect. From a very young age it is accepted that intention is an important factor in any healing process. Medical communities in cultures all around the world have known for thousands of years that a focused positive patient is more likely to heal. Adam Dreamhealer emphasizes this at each of his workshops, in his books and DVD as the most powerful, yet overlooked preventative aspect of medicine.

In the 1950’s when Watson and Crick solved the structure of DNA things suddenly changed. The scientific community became obsessed with finding a structural biochemical explanation for every biological event. As technology advanced it seemed that every mystery in biology could be explained by physical chemical interactions. In 2003 the human genome was sequenced and at that time this was thought to be the final frontier in molecular biology, which would leave few remaining mysteries in biology.

Rather than solving all biological questions, it was realized that there are many important mechanisms that are poorly understood. Stem cells are particularly effective at highlighting some key concepts that remain unknown. Every cell in a person’s body carries the exact same genetic information, yet the brain cells look and function dramatically different than skin cells. How is this possible?

It turns out that there are proteins that associate with the DNA and it is these proteins that determine which genes are “turned on” and which ones are not. It is this selective control of the DNA that results in these cells having completely different properties. These discoveries resulted in the development of a new field of study known as epigenetics. This has dramatically changed our understanding of biology as epigenetics established that environment has a significant and detectable impact on changes in every cell in the body, and every protein.

With regards to healing this is important because proteins are incredibly sensitive to their environment. The slightest change in the environment results in significant changes to these proteins, which consequently influence every aspect of the cell metabolism. When someone is trying to improve his or her health, regardless of what the medical condition is, the goal is to change cell metabolism such that balance can once again be restored.

A crucial factor in the environment is how a person chooses to perceive their environment. It is certainly evident that the human body reacts differently when relaxed as opposed to when stressed or tensed. If a situation is perceived to be positive and ideal for healing then this changes the environment within the body. This directly influences cellular events and consequently health.

Human cells are no longer considered to be complex biochemical machines that function solely on chemical and physical interactions. It is important to remember that cells are conscious organisms that do everything possible to maximize their contribution to health and wellbeing. Every cell in the body is functioning together for the benefit of the whole organism. This knowledge is very empowering because everyone has the power to influence every biochemical event that occurs in the body.

Finally molecular biology is beginning to confirm what has been known to be true for thousands of years, that our intentions influence our health. So take the time to clear your mind and talk with your cells because they are certainly listening to what you have to say.
