Issue 6 | Volume 1 | November 2019
In this issue:
This month, we have a massive review of the evidence-backed complementary treatments for candida overgrowth. Find out what candida is, how it can progress to candidiasis, and what natural treatments have shown evidence for its treatment.
We also have some great articles on protein and sugar cravings, high-fat diets and the brain, and the effects of omega-3 fats on gut-health.
All You Need to Know About Treating Candida, Naturally
Candida is poorly understood and candida overgrowth can be over-diagnosed in alternative health circles…on the other hand, it can be a major problem, especially for people with immune dysfunction and can result in symptoms ranging from annoying to life-threatening.
In this article, Cliff Harvey PhD delves into the research to find the evidence for various natural treatment strategies for candida, from diet through to herbal medicine, and supplementation.
Does Protein Reduce Sugar Cravings
It’s commonly suggested that increased protein in the diet reduces cravings.
But does this claim stack up?
So, does increasing protein intake reduce cravings, especially for sugar? Find out in this month’s article.
Can Omega-3 Fats Treat Dysbiosis?
What does the evidence say about the use of omega-3 fats, particularly those from fish oil, for gut-health?
Do omega-3 fats improve gut-health by, in turn, improving the gut microbiome?

Do High-Fat Diets Increase Inflammation in the Brain?
There is debate over whether high-fat diets that cause inflammation in mice are relevant to the human, in vivo, in situ experience.
In this article, Cliff Harvey PhD considers a recent animal study and whether the results apply to humans.
