Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, and yeast that support our digestive system. Traditionally, probiotics were consumed with fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut, and pickles (fermented-not the stuff with vinegar and in a sealed jar). Because most of us don’t eat enough of these foods, it can be beneficial to supplement with probiotic supplements. […]
For a QSM advanced seminar in Atlanta. I will be back seeing patients Monday morning.
The product of the month is Rosemary Supreme:
Rosemary Supreme was developed by Drs. Michael Lebowitz and Walter Schmitt. Michael Lebowitz states that it took a while for Supreme Nutrition Products to find a source of rosemary that tested (via AK) and performed well in trials.
Rosemary Supreme is a potent antioxidant. Rosemary has several anti-oxidant compounds in it. Anti-oxidants protect against free radicals. Free radicals are implicated in ageing, and cancer production. Free radicals protect against them.
Rosemary Supreme is anti-inflammatory via several pathways including preventing leukotrienes, reducing allergies, and preventing cytokines. It also helps get people off of pain pills especially NSAIDs (aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, etc.).
Lebowitz and Schmitt are also using it to help against auto-immune diseases, such as Chrohn’s, Celiac, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Rosemary also works well against estrogen and estrogen mimickers (such as parabens), that are common cancer causing agents. Unlike cruciferous based products, Rosemary Supreme doesn’t depress the thyroid. I’ve written a lot about parabens, Bisphenol A, and other chemicals that mimic sex hormones. These chemicals wreck havoc on the low back and contributes to low back instability. However, long term exposure will increase breast cancer. While we need to minimize our exposure to these chemicals, Rosemary Supreme will also protect against them.
Rosemary stimulates muscle growth and reduces atrophy. It also protects the heart, and nervous system.

One in seven people have a genetic defect where they cannot convert folate to its final usable form. Folic acid/Folate is needed to reduce several inflammatory pathways and allergies. It is needed for detoxification, cell repair, inflammation and mood. Chronic deficiencies can lead to heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. 5-MTHF is the final usable form and will counteract this deficiency.
