Karen Samzano,
East Chester, NY

"Thank you so much for your wonderful recommendations. Life has been a pleasure! You help me reduce my joint pain and I look forward to exercising again. Before I didn’t think this would have been possible. You were always available, quick to answer questions and always exceeded my expectations. You truly are gifted."
Michele Griths, Hacketstown, NJ

"Dr. Rob, again thanks for the great assistance. You consistently help my mother during some of her toughest times."

Pauline Connors,

"I really can’t believe how powerful hypnosis is. I accomplished more in 6 months then I have in 3 years of therapy. I have better self esteem, motivation, and I am now a more positive person. I used to be a worry wart and negative about everything in life. Dr. Robert your service is fantastic."

“I am so glad I consulted with you. The chemotherapy I was receiving was causing me to lose weight. Through your diet I was able to put the much needed weight back on and keep my immune system strong. Even when I had trouble getting food down you were able to work out a way for me to get my much needed calories. I still avoid those foods you told me would weaken my immune system and I feel you really helped me during my treatments.
- Mildred Harnack,
Lyndhurst, NJ

“I have nothing but great things to say about The Banish! Program. I am 53 and have smoked since I was a teenager. I have tried to quit countless times. Cold turkey, patches, gum, zyban, you name it I tried it. All except hypnosis. I'm not even sure how I found out about your site, but I decided to sign up. Right after the session I felt different. Very little cravings and no cheating. I have been smoke free now for 5 months. This is a huge accomplishment for me. I have never been able to go more then a week or two without backsliding and returning to smoking. I am so delighted that your program worked. I have told several people about it and will continue to spread the word if anyone is trying to quit.”
–Edward Robinson,
Pequannock, NJ

“You're a hit. We received a lot of positive feedback regarding your programs. Your really provide a great service to the community. Thank you for the all the hard work in making our programs a success. We look forward to working with you again.”
-Michele DiLoreto,
Program Director,

“Since I started working with Dr. Robert I haven't had a flare up of my ulcerative colitis.”
-Samantha Bakers

“Your were the third nutritionist I saw in 7 years. I never had anyone spend as much time and ask me as many questions as you did. You are very thorough in what you do. My acne cleared up, my energy came back and I feel bad saying this, because everyone wants to lose weight, but I gained the weight I needed.”
-Mary Lou, Maywood, NJ

“The migraines I have had during my PMS week are much improved. Your advice worked.”
-Patricia Glasser,
Blauvelt, NY

“I met Dr. Robert at a health fair a year ago. We spoke for a while and I knew I had to consult with him in regards to my daughters asthma. Since working with him she has needed less of her medication and her asthma is much more manageable.”
-Alexis Varner, NJ

“You really helped me advance my career by helping me overcome my fear of public speaking.”
-Brian B. Lawyer, NJ

“I had out of control blood sugar and couldn't stop my cravings for bad foods. Dr. Robert gave me a realistic diet I could follow along with a few supplements to help my body. Now my blood sugar is perfect and my food cravings are gone. I also lost some weight.”
-Sheila T, Nurse, NJ

“My cholesterol is down below 200. Thanks for your guidance."
-John Mason,
Hackensack, NJ

“My boyfriend went out and signed me up to see Dr. Robert, knowing how debilitating my depression had become. I was skeptical, because anything I’d ever tried in the past that promised relief never worked.

I was really surprised at what Dr. Robert told me. I had no idea the negative effects my habits were having. I couldn’t believe that in just one week I was feeling so much better!"
-Kathy Nates,
CityGardens, Long Island, NY

Probiotics and Probiotic Supplements

What are they, their benefits,
and what foods they are in? 


What are probiotics?

What are probiotics, you ask? They are simply the healthy effects of good bacteria that live in your gastrointestinal tract. Probiotics keep your gastrointestinal tract functioning properly and when there are not enough of them or they become imbalanced, you might experience digestive problems.

At least 400 different species and possibly more as yet undiscovered microflora live in your gastrointestinal tract. Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum are the most important of these “friendly bacteria.”

What foods contain probiotics?

Most people in the world eat foods fermented with probiotics, especially Lactobacilli. If you enjoy cheese, yogurt, and miso, you are ingesting some degree of a probiotic food. And that’s a good thing, because Lactobacilli and you have a history together, a symbiotic relationship with nutritional and therapeutic bonuses. Food sources, with no supplementation, of probiotics are usually not going to improve a digestive problem.

You weren’t born with probiotics and Lactobacilli in your gastrointestinal tract; they colonized after your birth. B. bifidum made its way to your infant gut through breast feeding, and other bacteria moved in later from world contact, like the beneficial strains L. casei, L. fermentum, L. salivores, and L. brevis. Sadly, bad bacteria also eventually invade your colon.

Please meet the probiotics in your intestine. They are:

  • L. acidophilus
  • L. bifidus (Bifidobacterium bifidum)
  • L. brevis
  • L. casei
  • L. cellobiosus
  • L. fermenti
  • L. leichmannii
  • L. plantarum
  • L. salivaroes
Probiotic supplements

To provide your digestive tract with benefits, products containing L. acidophilus and B. bifidum must be delivered in a way that they’ll survive the gastrointestinal tract, which is a hostile place.

Some factors affect successful probiotic colonization of your gastrointestinal tract, such as species, strain, adherence, growth media, and diet. Usually, a top-notch commercial preparation yields more good bacteria than simply downing your favorite yogurt. Why? Yogurt, a probiotic containing food, is typically made with L. bulgaricus or Streptococcus thermophilus; they have some health benefits, but are visitors that don’t dwell in the colon.

Proper production, packaging, and storage of probiotic supplements are necessary to ensure feasibility, moisture level, and to prevent contamination. Lactobacilli can be easily damaged by freeze-drying (lyophilization), spray drying, or regular frozen storage. When there are extreme temperatures during the packing or storing processes this can greatly diminish longevity. In addition, unless the product is ‘stable’-not sensitive to specific temperatures-you must refrigerate it. Some probiotic supplements don’t have to be refrigerated until after you open the bottle.

Speaking of supplements, there are a number of reputable companies that provide high-quality ones, however, it is difficult to trust every manufacturer’s claims. Some products don’t even contain any active L. acidophilus! Do your homework and use caution when shopping. This is one reason it is a good idea to consult with a natural health expert, like me, to determine your specific probiotic needs and which type might be best for you.

Intestinal flora plays a major role in your overall health and especially in your digestive system. Your probiotics are intimately involved in your nutritional status and affect immune system function, cholesterol metabolism, carcinogenesis, and aging. Because of the significance of L. acidophilus and B. bifidum to your health, probiotic supplements can be taken to promote overall wellbeing.

Probiotic benefits

There are specific uses for probiotics:

  • To promote a proper intestinal environment
  • To help partially treat and prevent vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections
  • To be taken after a course of antibiotics to reduce gastrointestinal side effects.
  • To help in strengthening your immune system.
  • Therapeutic for many gastrointestinal problems
  • Your body produces certain B-vitamins because of probiotics
  • To stop harmful bacterial overgrowth.
  • They also have anticancerous properties


Fructooligosaccharides, FOS for short, is a food component that promotes the growth of your body’s friendly bacteria. Fructooligosaccharides are not digested by human beings and are very beneficial to your gastrointestinal system, because they provide food for probiotics to grow and flourish.

Other benefits of Fructooligosaccharides are:

  • Increased production of short-chain fatty acids
  • They improve your bodies liver function
  • Can reduce your cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Improve your bodies elimination of toxic compounds

Fructooligosaccharides are found in:

  • Jerusalem artichokes
  • Onions
  • Asparagus
  • Garlic

Supplementation of FOS may help boost your FOS intake and help the growth of your friendly bacteria.

Probiotic supplementation is extremely safe and is not associated with any side effects. Dosages range depending on what you are looking to accomplish.

Not quite sure whether your need probiotics, what types, what dose and how to properly take them? My digestive health service can help you determine what is needed to rebalance your body and have you on your way to better gastrointestinal health.
