Rhodiola (R. rosea) is an adaptogen, an herb that helps protect cells from oxidative damage caused by environmental and chemical stressors. Because adaptogens grow under harsh climate conditions and must protect themselves against such environmental extremes, they’re very strong plants. Rhodiola, for instance, grows at altitudes 10,000 feet ( 3 km) above sea level, where the oxygen concentration is low and temperatures are cold.

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) may seem like a new condition, but I first wrote about it over 35 years ago. At the time, in the early 1980s, there was a lot of focus on the overgrowth of Candida albicans in the intestinal tract as a factor in a complex set of symptoms. Yet, I noticed that many of the patients I was seeing had these symptoms, but no evidence of candida being out of control. Something else had to be responsible for their symptoms and an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine seemed like a very good explanation. In the last 10 years or so, SIBO has become a big buzzword in research and on the internet. Fortunately, there are effective answers.
