Healthy Gut | Day 2

What lives inside you

As I started day 2 the news on TV, Radio 2 and in the papers was simply full on diabetes type 2 (AGAIN). It should come as no surprise to anyone that this killer is spiralling out of control and claims for an AIDS type TV campaign was something I had been thinking about early in the morning only to hear what it might sound like later during a Radio 2 broadcast #spooky. Is this the type of shock treatment that’s needed? Maybe, but we have some of the most powerful ante smoking adverts that I have ever seen and yet still millions of fools in the country keep on smoking. My latest favourite is the little boy tidying up his bedroom, putting his wee dinosaur in his school bag and then seeing is very ill mother being comforted by his dad, I’m sure you have all seen it.
No one seems to stop and think why this is being allowed to continue and not stopped dead in its tracks. I am talking about Type 2 diabetes which is not only preventable but it’s also curable but NOT with prescription drugs. One day soon the public are going to waken up to the system that simply manages ill health and seldom cures it or more beneficially for all, prevents it. Before everyone who has an NHS success story attacks me, don’t forget, so do I but there are two sides to my story a consultant team who sent me home with three blocked arteries and a consultant who 15 months later saved my life with bypass surgery, that’s a story for another day but you can read a bit more about it in the About me page on this site, then make up your own mind.

Let’s get back to Type 2 Diabetes and the Microbiome.  Hippocrates is widely considered to be the “Father of Medicine” and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. Here’s just few things worth noting from him way back in the 4th Century BC.

He is credited with being the first person to believe that diseases were caused naturally, not because of superstition and gods. I would add to that fate, luck and to some lesser extent genes.

He separated the discipline of medicine from religion, believing and arguing that disease was not a punishment inflicted by the gods but rather the product of environmental factors, diet, and living habits.  If you believe this to be so, then surely given the right environment and nourishment the body has the potential to heal itself from most diseases? Remember my post from yesterday? “fix the gut fix the problem”, Hippocrates also believed that most diseases were caused by unhealthy guts. Back in the 2004 I for one never linked my heart attack to my gut, now I think differently.

If you want to learn more about Hippocrates, then look no further than Wikipedia.
