Thank you to all who came out to our big Shindig 25 year anniversary community event!! It was so wonderful to see all of you and reconnect on our special day. As you know we have invested in the Mills River Community for over TWO decades now, and are committed and here to stay! Serving the people in our country town has been more rewarding than we could have ever even imagined.
The backbone of our town is its small business owners. A big thank you to all our Sponsors and Vendors who participated in our event! We have shared their links with you below…please take a moment and see what each one has to offer. Just a stone’s throw away from MRFC is our good friends at Conosur. They have amazing and unique food including delicious selections for gluten free folks. Pisgah Coffee Roasters, just down the road toward Brevard from us, has a long heritage in the coffee industry. We ALL love hanging out at Bold Rock with their delicious ciders, sundry adult beverages, tasty food truck and great family atmosphere…even our four-legged family members are welcome! Whit Lanning of Burning Bush Brewery believes his doors should be open early fall of 2019 and we are really looking forward to visiting these neighbors as well!! Conserving Carolina, with strategic plans to beautify Mills River, was also there. We will highlight them in our next blog! We always love and appreciate the flowers from Judy, the Dahlia Queen, at Poppins Posies on Ray Hill Road. Big shout out also to our new local bank, Champion Credit Union, for the merchandise they donated. Finally, thank you to the Mayor of Mills River for coming out to our celebration, and for cutting our ribbon!! What a memorable day for us!!

Helicobacter Pylori is the most common infection in the world, estimated to effect 50% of the worlds population at any given point in time.
It is known to be the cause of the majority of stomach ulcers and is the most likely cause of all acid reflux/GERD as well as a prominent cause of low stomach acid.
When pathologists perform biopsies on clots taken from clogged arteries and investigate what is in gallstones, they find H. Pylori and other gut bugs.
Unfortunately, most doctors never test for H. Pylori, in spite of treated related conditions.
The most accurate tests to determine whether someone is infected with H. Pylori is a stool test or the UREA Breath test. Blood tests are more likely to miss the infection due to a high level of false negatives. Biopsies can find the infection only if the infection is in the spot they check.
The cheapest way to screen for an H. Pylori infection is a blood-spot IgG antibody test. I purchased a case of these kits last year. I haven’t used many because they often give false negative results and this is an important infection to rule out with more dependable methods.
However, my case of test kits have a 5/2011 expiration date. They still show they are valid, so…I am offering FREE H. PYLORI SCREENING TESTS for anyone who wants them until these barely expired kits are gone. I have ~20 kits.
Results only take about 10 minutes and require a finger prick blood sample. I have the snazzy spring-loaded lancets which you barely feel. This is a $25 value for FREE!
I feel strongly that people with any digestive distress, reflux, poor or incomplete digestion, excessive gas, GERD or people who allow their pets to lick their face ( a common method of aquiring the infection) get tested. People easily spread this infection by kissing each other on the mouth or by drinking or eating after one another. This means that if you or someone you kiss has the infection, you and the ones you kiss should be evaluated and if infected, treated.
Although standard medical treatments for H. Pylori infections involve a triple antibiotic prescription which is only 80% effective, natural supplements seem to do a much better job at eradicating this infection and also seem to offer less occurrences of re-infection due to incomplete results.
