There has been some research that shows a correlation between poor nutritional choices and gut issues causing a weakened immune system, which may lead to a greater susceptibility to environmental allergens and more viral infections. I was wondering how this might relate to children. If a child has been given a consistent diet of poor quality meats, fruits, vegetables, sugar, corn syrup, and junk food, and has shown to suffer from environmental allergies and recurring viral infections, but is otherwise healthy, what typical results from just cleaning up the diet can be expected? Is it usually enough? What are the indicators that would lead to recommending enzymes and/or probiotics to children or even gut repair products?
Thanks in advance for any input.

I have been thinking about taking the nutritional consultant program at Bauman for at least a year and I am 99% sure that I am going to do it. I am not, however, convinced that I will be able to make a living as a nutritional consultant once I graduate. I know that the school broadcasts the many possibilities available to NCs and what their graduates are supposedly doing, however, I have contacted numerous students from this website and the majority of them seem to hint to the reality that making a living (let's say....$75,000/year being in the Bay Area of California) is not easy and not one of them seems to have a strong career path. It sounds like if you don't have someone who can financially support you while you try to make a go of being a nutritional consultant then you will be like any starving artist out there....and it also sounds like the competition is fierce so even if you are the best of the best, you may not succeed...Everyone I spoke with loved the program and was happy that they had done it, however, the reality seems to be that this may be more of a supplemental income thing at best...?
I was hoping that during the program I would learn more about what realistic opportunities exist for NCs and more importantly HOW to land one, but based on what I'm hearing from past grads it doesn't really sound like that's the case...? It sounds like you are given the information that, "You can do anything you set your mind to and if you have enough motivation and are willing to HUSSLE you will find a way to make it work!" But I need SOLID information, like a game plan. Like HOW do I make it work? What exact steps do I need to be taking NOW so that in 3, 4, 5 years I can be a successful nutritional consultant? I don't expect it to happen overnight, but I do expect to be given some sort of a road map for how to get there.
I also really wish that it were possible to view the jobs that are supposedly posted on the Bauman board for students/grads because I would like to see what sort of jobs and how many are out there and what sort of pay we are talking about. One of the grads I talked to said a lot of the people in her cohort were working at places like Whole Foods and Pharmaca....that sounds like minimum wage to me....if I were 20 years old that might be great, but I'm not. I need to make a living...in the bay area....so....any thoughts? Like I said, I'm 99% sure I will do this program regardless because I want to learn the information they teach and this subject IS my true passion. I wish I could make a career in this field, but I'm discouraged at how many of the grads have responded and have lost my confidence.

Good read on chronic fatigue. Take a look at the comments, too.

Hi, since posting this afternoon - I found Jodi Friedlander's article on Supplements and Herbs. Jodi ( met you about 4 years ago) - so I wanted to say hi again and thank you for the information. If you see my post, I'll be very curious to see what you think of Osteobiflex.

My doctor has suggested I take this particular pill and vitamin for mild arthritis. He is suggesting I take 3 grams of Osteobiflex x3 strength with Laxim and MSM. Also to take Glucosamine twice a day. Can any of the teachers or if you have experitise in this area suggest the ideal glucosimine.
I appreciate any suggestions.

Female professional in Aptos is seeking personal chef to prepare simple meals/to meal prep 1x/week following specific nutrition guidelines for intestinal disorder. Open to new ideas for limited options but really don't need gourmet! Simple, fresh and organic with a flare for how to use spices is great.

I have been seeing my functional medicine Dr since April, so 7 months now. I feel great! But I keep gaining weight. I have gained almost 25 pounds since March. I work out 5-6 days a week with a mix of HITT, strength training, hiking, and running. I eat Paleo and am really good about watching what I eat. I am beyond frustrated with what could be going on.
I am on Nature Throid (113 mg)...would it be worth trying a different thyroid med?
I have been on progesterone for hormone balance but am taking a break from it because I had a reaction to it.
Thanks in advance!
