Probiotics are those “good bugs” you hear health nuts raving about. Our intestinal flora, in fact, is made up of trillions of good bacteria that aid in digestion and promote immunity and health.

The No. 1 probiotic food is yogurt. Yes, it’s a dairy product, but eating yogurt calms digestive complaints. That’s because it contains live cultures, typically lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, that help lactose digestion. When choosing a yogurt, make sure the cultures are listed as “live” or “active.” Yogurts with added fiber are even better.

Blood in the stool means there is bleeding somewhere in your digestive tract. Here's what you need to know about the possible causes of bloody stools and what you -- and your doctor -- should do if you discover a problem.

1. Diverticular disease. Diverticula are small pouches that project from the colon wall.

2. Anal fissure. A small cut or tear in the tissue lining the anus similar to the cracks that occur in chapped lips or a paper cut.

3. Colitis. Inflammation of the colon. Among the more common causes are infections or inflammatory bowel disease.

4. Angiodysplasia. A condition in which fragile, abnormal blood vessels lead to bleeding.

5. Peptic ulcers. An open sore in the lining of the stomach or duodenum, the upper end of the small intestine. 

6. Polyps or cancer. Polyps are benign growths that can grow, bleed, and become cancerous. Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the U.S.

Once the electrodes of the balloon are positioned on the desired treatment area the balloon is inflated. The HALO360 Energy Generator and the ablation catheter then work together to deliver a short burst of energy that is circumferential: 360 degrees.

1. The design of this technology limits the energy delivery to a depth clinically proven to remove the diseased tissue while reducing the risk of injury to the deeper and healthy tissue layers.

2. The HALO360+ Ablation Catheter ablates a 3cm circumferential segment of Barrett's tissue within the oesophagus
