What lives inside you
Well the fashion retailer GAP has had plenty widespread praise for their recent Breastfeeding Ad but according to BBC news it’s also caused a bit of a stir here in the UK. So, what’s this got to do with a healthy gut? I’ll get to that shortly. The point that BBC news was making that in countries like Norway it’s acceptable for women to breast feed but here in the UK we are statistically worse than Norway, they posed the questions, “what’s the difference between Norwegian Woman and UK Women? I certainly couldn’t think of any and if anyone dares to post a smutty comment I have the power of moderation and all inappropriate comments will be deleted. But back to the point of a healthy gut.
Maybe fifteen months ago I heard the terminology Microbiome for the first time and I have said on many occasions I am no expert on this, but I am eager to learn, have put myself up as a “guinea pig” and I do have people in my team who are experts. Two things I didn’t know, babies born naturally and babies who are breast fed have a far better start at building healthy bacteria in their Microbiome, why their mothers pass their healthy bacteria on to them through the birth canal and their milk. This is what the scientists say mothers pass on colonies of essential microbes to their baby. This continues a chain of maternal heritage that stretches through female ancestry for thousands of generations. This means a child’s Microbiome, that is the trillions of microorganisms that live on and in him or her, will resemble the Microbiome of his/her mother, the grandmother, the great-grandmother and so on, if all have been vaginally born and breastfed.
I have just left a webinar which was one of the most informative webinars about the Microbiome and its links to heart disease that I have ever heard. It also gives hope to everyone who may have started life with a weaker immune system and those of us who have poisoned ours like me, some hope. #Lookharder #Elitehealth.
Next week I will do more research into this and the link to Heart Disease, inflammation and an unhealthy gut.
On day five I have started feeling a bit unwell, headaches and spots, but as my body flushes out the toxins I was warned that this might happen.
