I no longer get sinus infections, what changed? - microbiome, sinuses, cold & flu, allergies

My personal sinus infection history: I typically had 1-3 sinus infections every year for about 15 years or so. No joke. I would get a cold. The cold would linger for weeks and weeks. My sinuses would hurt. I would try Sudafed, Flonase, sinus rinses, sinus sprays, zinc, vitamin c, elderberry, etc. the whole time. The pressure would build and build. My head would hurt. The pressure in my face would kill. I would inevitably stop in to the doctor. He would verify that it had been more than 6 weeks to make sure it wasn't a virus. And then...

What else causes bloating? - gut health, intermittentfasting

What else causes bloating? - gut health, intermittentfasting

Sometimes the cause of bloating isn't due to gut imbalances, leaky gut, inflammation, candida, SIBO, IBS, food intolerances/sensitivities/allergies, gastritis, low stomach acid, constipation, slow gastric emptying, diarrhea, etc. Yes, intermittent fasting or skipping meals can cause bloating. Yes, drinking a lot of water each day can cause bloating. Yes, hormone imbalances definitely cause bloating. People can get bloated following a hard workout. Anyone stressed and/or anxious lately? Stress causes an inflammatory response in the digestive tract causing distress related bloating. Let's not forget weight gain. High levels of stress can cause weight gain. And weight gain can cause bloating. What...

Signs of parasites leaving - gut health, candida, cleanse, detox

4 interesting points to make about our approach to helping with parasites:⁠⁠1) Our protocol also targets bad bacteria⁠2) Our protocol also targets bad fungal issues (like candida and mold)⁠3) Our approach has a full break-down and soak-up process so that floating pathogens also get gathered up⁠4) We hit parasite issues all the way, not kind of ⁠⁠"How will I know if Nano Scrub is working?"⁠If you have bad things in the gut you will notice changes.

What you should know before buying any probiotic - gut health, leaky gut, probiotics

What you should know before buying any probiotic - gut health, leaky gut, probiotics

"Most probiotics are a complete waste of money! Further, the majority of fermented foods do not contain the live cultures in them most people think and those that do have living organisms do not survive digestion. And in order for a probiotic to be a probiotic it must deliver living microorganisms. Most do not!" This is a comment I remember when we first met the microbiologist that would eventually formulate our probiotic (btw-he is a common keynote speaker at fermentation conferences). His attitude based on about 22 years of microbiome research experience was that most probiotics were worthless. Most of...

High cholesterol checklist - gut health, leaky gut, gut imbalances

High cholesterol checklist - gut health, leaky gut, gut imbalances

Poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, and too much alcohol are all causes of gut imbalances and leaky gut. So, I can't help but wonder if these lifestyle behaviors don't trigger the gut problems that then cause high LDL cholesterol. Oddly enough, some of the same ingredients for the liver also help with cholesterol. Currently we do not offer a cholesterol aiding product. We are researching this now. If you have any questions, please send us a DM on Instagram @silverfernbrand.

Do prebiotics tear you up? They can do that to a lot of people. Sensitive Gut Fiber doesn't do that. And it contains very clinically researched ingredients that are proven to be very successful prebiotics. The only reason not to add Sensitive Gut Fiber to your gut health protocol is if you have slow gastric emptying or gastroparesis. How do I use it? I'm loading up on it daily to improve my health markers for my metabolic needs. It is part of my daily routine for helping build up short-chain fatty acids and bacteria types in the gut that are...

NAFLD and the gut - gut health, fatty liver disease, leaky gut

NAFLD and the gut - gut health, fatty liver disease, leaky gut

As the gut goes so do other organs. When gut imbalances transport to other organs, problems happen. Imbalances in the gut lead to increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut). Leaky gut leads to bad stuff moving to other parts of the body and to other organs. This results in inflammatory issues in other parts of the body (like the liver). With increased intestinal permeability comes liver fat accumulation. And this contributes to issues like NAFLD. Also, imbalances in the gut cause leaky gut. Leaky gut causes systemic inflammation. This whole process is also linked to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic...

The missing secret to helping with leaky gut issues - gut health, gut barrier

The missing secret to helping with leaky gut issues - gut health, gut barrier

Are you really addressing leaky gut or just part of it? To help with leaky gut you must first address what is causing it AND THEN you can build the gut barrier back up. Bad bacteria inhibit mucus secretion, leaving the gut barrier open season for pathogens. Did you know that the mucus layer acts as a protective shield for the rest of the gut barrier? When it is weak and/or damaged your gut barrier becomes an open target to pathogens. Also, the mucus barrier is key component for helping with issues like food allergies. Yet most gut health protocols...

Processed vs. ultra processed foods - gut health, nutrition

"Reduce processed foods," seems like a simple enough statement but it's also a very broad statement. So what do we mean when we say, "reduce processed foods?"Your chips, soft drinks, candy, ready to eat meals, and anything else wherein the majority of the product is from substances extracted from foods or pulled from food constituents with little to nothing left intact are ultra processed foods. Say what? 🤔These products contain refined carbs, saturated fats, and tons of salt. This is not super healthy. These are seldom created with health in mind.

Do you have constipation, reflux, heartburn, feel full after eating a little and for a long period of time, have bloating, stomach pain, and nausea in any combination?Slow motility can even cause diarrhea issues.

We get asked about diatomaceous earth a lot. Is it good? Does it work? Should I take it? Here's our view. I can find blog after blog after blog that talks about all the "evidence" backed research for diatomaceous earth. But those blogs do not then show the research reference studies supporting their suggested health benefits.

What do the experts say about food intolerances? "Experts aren't sure why some people develop food intolerances."Cleveland ClinicHere is our view. "...evidence strongly demonstrates an inextricable link between the pancreas and the gut."European Journal Of Immunology 1) A poor gut bacteria composition seems to connect in a lot of research to food intolerances. Not only do good microbes produce enzymes for digestion, but when bad microbes from the gut colonize the pancreas it can cause pancreatic problems (microbiota-pancreas axis). This can cause a reduction in enzyme production. Therefore, we assume in order to help food intolerances the gut needs a...

If you are strictly playing defense with cold & flu season you have already lost. The secret to winning is making sure you and your children have strong immune systems that easily repel sicknesses. This means that instead of the cold & flu knocking you out for days and weeks, you feel tired and warn down a couple of days but bounce right back.

How can digestive enzymes help with your protein goals - gut health, digestions, nutrient absorption

How can digestive enzymes help with your protein goals - gut health, digestions, nutrient absorption

Are you maximizing your high protein diet? For years I would stack protein to put on muscle for sports. I'd exercise, practice whatever sport I was doing at the time, and eat a ton of protein. As I graduated away from sports my exercising became all about being lean and healthy. And eating lots of protein was part of that approach. Now I know how to eat less protein and put on the same amount of muscle as before. It's a lot less expensive this way and I don't feel like I am chasing protein all day long to build...

Brain fog is real. Gut problems do cause it. Cleaning up gut health can help get rid of it. The first thing my wife found from loading up on Cleanse was that her brain fog went away. She has Hashimoto's. When she hyper focused on decreasing immune activation the first thing she realized was that she had clarity again and wasn't in a constant state of fogginess in the mind. There are many things that can cause brain fog. Many of these issues have to do with the gut. There are, however, issues like hormones and such that can also...

What makes Silver Fern Brand different? Everything. - gut health, probiotics, detox

What sets Silver Fern™ Brand apart? Everything. We take a top down approach (start in the esophagus and stomach then work down through the colon). We assume everything is a problem then use a complete protocol to hit the entire system. Since the digestive system is all connected doesn't that make sense? We start with step 1, not step 3. We open up detox pathways and help establish non-laxative forced motility BEFORE doing a gut clean up. Doesn't it make sense to open the "doors" before trying to clean everything out? And, did you know that most gut imbalances and...

Is caffeine good or bad for you? Both. It depends on how much you are taking and what your gut issues are at the time you take it. Most people really want to know if coffee is good for the gut. Generally speaking (once again), the answer depends on how much you drink and what your gut problems are at the time you take it. Coffee is generally considered good for the gut microbiome. If you have gastritis, low stomach acid, SIBO, and/or IBS then you may want to hold off on the caffeine for a bit. If you want...

Yeast infection? It could be due to yeast imbalances - gut health, women's health, vaginal health

How did you get your yeast infection? If you recently used an antibiotic and ended up with a yeast infection it is most likely your antibiotic use caused imbalances in the natural vaginal flora. Other causes of yeast infections include pregnancy, uncontrolled diabetes, a poor immune system, oral contraceptives, or hormone therapy (this is just to name some of the more common causes).Obviously, as a supplement company we are not allowed to treat, cure, heal, repair, fix, rebuild or much of anything.

Why doesn't anything ever help your SIBO issues completely? Let's start off with the basics. There are 4 causes of SIBO problems, not 1. Gut imbalances are only one cause of SIBO issues and those imbalances are in part or in whole caused by the other causes of SIBO, so they all need to be addressed. More than 50%. This is the likelihood that your SIBO issues will either not go away or will return shortly after antibiotic use for addressing SIBO because antibiotics do not help with ❌ Low stomach acid ❌ Decreased bile acid ❌ Slow motility The...

There is a reason Nano Scrub is in all of our protocols. Ya, it's THAT good.1) I literally can't find a product with more research and manufacturer protections on it for safety. 2) It is very effective against all the bad stuff in the gut: bacterial, fungal, parasitical, etc. but does not kill the good stuff. The good stuff in the gut has a different outer protective system and for some reason (which is still unknown) the Nano Scrub doesn't pop it or tear it apart like it does with the protective systems of bad stuff in the gut.

What's causing your bloating? - gut health, gas, gastritis, gastroparesis

Bloating and gas are caused by dang near everything: stress, gastritis, gastroparesis, inflammatory issues, low stomach acid, constipation, reflux/heartburn, silent reflux, etc. There is no one magic pill that addresses all bloating problems. There may be a "band-aid" type enzyme or methane inhibitor that will help. But there is no one product answer to all bad bloating issues. What I can say, however, is that if your protocol isn't managing your gut imbalances effectively and thoroughly you are going to continue to look 6 months pregnant for a very long time. You will continue to feel uncomfortable. Protocols need to...

"Why do I see food in my stool?" It's a question we get asked a lot. There are simple answers to seeing undigested food in stool such as poor chewing and eating fast. And sometimes the food is tough to digest because it is very fibrous. For some of you the issue may be a temporary stomach "bug." Other times, the causes are more problematic: Crohn's, Celiac Disease, enzyme deficiency, low stomach acid, lactose intolerance, IBS, etc. Obviously, stomach acid and enzymes break down foods. When either is lacking in any way, food does not break down properly. These are...

If your system is slow and pathogens have no place to go, what happens? If your gut and liver are already clogged up, how are all the pathogens getting evacuated? Probably your skin. That's no fun. Starting with a gut clean up before you have opened up detox pathways is a bit like cleaning a room but not having a door to take all the garbage through.

If you hate all things Stevia and Stevia extract, that is totally okay. This post is to evaluate the recent research on Stevia. Generally speaking, when Stevia is not combined with sugar alcohols (which is how we use it in the Reflux product), it is not known to cause digestive discomforts in most people. For some, however, Stevia extract does cause digestive discomforts. And some hate the taste. For this reason, we offer unsweetened options in all of our protocols. Generally speaking, Stevia is considered much safer than artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols. Japan, which is very rigid on sweeteners...

2 surprising signs you have an inflamed stomach lining - gut health, mucosal barrier

2 surprising signs you have an inflamed stomach lining - gut health, mucosal barrier

Do supplements hurt your stomach? Can't tolerate digestive enzymes, ginger root extract, turmeric, L-arginine, etc.? Do your vitamins hurt to take too? You likely have an inflamed stomach lining. Meaning, the lining of your stomach can't protect against strong stomach acid. This means your mucosal barrier is weak or damaged. Since the stomach lining is what both creates HCL (stomach acid) and protects against it, an inflamed stomach lining causes low stomach acid. Most of the time people use acid blockers and antibiotics (for H. pylori) for an inflamed stomach lining. The acid blockers are to block acid (though I'm...

It's easy to refer to candida as "sticky". It just doesn't go away easily.

Once it is rooted in it is tough to get out. ⁠2️⃣ Candida (along with other bad stuff) builds biofilms. This protects the candida from your immune system and your doctor. It protects the candida against all those amazing herbs that have antifungal benefits too. ⁠3️⃣ There was an an initial cause of candida overgrowth. Don't you think it is wise to...

Do you know why blocking acid doesn't make sense? High stomach acid comes from 3 causes that are very rare (Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome, gastric outlet obstruction, and chronic kidney failure) or 2 causes that you help address if you are addressing low stomach acid correctly (H. pylori overgrowth and rebound effect from acid blockers). Why not just help the underlying issues that are most likely at fault? FYI - that isn't a single product answer. There are about 10 causes of reflux and heartburn. And blocking acid long-term isn't the answer to any of them. Gastritis is an inflamed mucosal barrier....
