What lives inside you – your microbiome.
So, what more about this community of bugs or microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses) that inhabit the human body called the Microbiome? And why do we need to #Lookharder and pay more attention to it than ever before. Not because I say so, I’d love to think I could command such attention that everyone who reads this would change and empower themselves to take proper charge of their own health. Even if you have been dealt a cruel hand you can always try and find something that might ease whatever burden your carrying and that includes anyone with a mental illness much of what has been written recently. The scientists, the PHD’s and nutritional experts are all sending out one message #Fixthegutfixtheproblem.
Here’s some facts for you to consider if your quest is #EliteHealth.
Individual humans are about 99.9% identical to one another as it relates to their human genes. However, they could be 80-90% different from one another in terms of their Microbiome. And while the microbial communities of your skin, your mouth, and your reproductive areas are important, it’s the Microbiome of the gut or abdominal cavity that plays the greatest role in determining your overall health.
All Disease Begins in The Gut.
What this means is the genetic diversity found in your gut Microbiome allows you to digest compounds, via enzymatic and metabolic pathways, not explicitly coded in your human genome. And it’s this diversity that allows you to properly extract energy as well as help your immune system function properly. In fact, every organ system in your body is affected by the chemical compounds produced by your Microbiome. If you put this into environmental terminology, you are one large chemical processing plant. And you’re either polluting yourself with toxins leading to poor health, or you are fuelling yourself with clean environmental compounds that allow you to live a healthy and vibrant life. One problem arising from this is leaky gut. While the medical community does not recognise this as a major contributing factor to all sorts of health issues, there is a growing body of science showing how a leaky gut, or what is called intestinal permeability, is wreaking havoc on people’s health. The Doctor I am working with took the time to explain to me in layman’s terms what is was or more importantly what it did. I’m going to invite her to hold a webinar on this as soon as she comes back from holiday but when she said gaps begin to appear in the gut where there should be none and this allows bacteria to leak into the body, that includes the bad bacteria and if you have more bad ones than good the for me it makes sense that this could lead to all sorts of health issues. This health concern is not new. In fact, Hippocrates recognised it when he stated, “All Disease Begins in The Gut.”
My gut reset
Now on day eleven I have reported mostly on negative things that I have experienced since day one, the headaches, the odd hot flush, pimples on my neck and a lethargic feeling. However last night, at the end of day 11, after watching #BBCQT (Question Time) I went to bed and fell asleep quickly, that’s unusual for me what’s even more unusual is I slept until 6.50am. I cannot remember the last time my sleep was uninterrupted for such a long time.
