How Chronic Inflammation Is A Problem For Your Brain
It's amazing how the gut and brain are connected. If the brain is unhealthy what are the factors that affect gut health? Brain fog is a common one.
When we begin to look at the term "brain fog", and what specifically it is, it's important to note where it comes from, and how it's created.
Toxic Cell Damage
How exactly do free radicals affect the body? In order to address that, we should probably ask how free radicals are formed and can that be reduced?
As long as people put unhealthy things in their bodies, it's important to look at why oxidative stress is damaging our bodies due to how prevalent things called free radicals are in our system. Our path to better health has been lost to us in many different ways and we are now living the sum of our actions blind to the effects these free radicals have on our system.
Why We Are Designed to Be Healthy
There is nothing natural about being sick. In a perfect world, we might live forever. Being that's not the case there are numerous reasons why being healthy is important to each of us in the short term and long term for optimal health.
What exactly does it mean to be healthy, and why is sickness just not a natural state of being. No. Being sick is not natural. Being healthy is it's what we're designed to be. There is nothing natural about having a body that is imbalanced, tired, sick, and in pain. There are no so called diseases in nature. There are no animals with rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis or asthma.
Immune System Digestive
What exactly is a normal digestive process and do probiotics and gut health play a role? If so, how do probiotics work in the gut and use them effectively?
It's important for everyone to understand the relationship between probiotics and inflammation. Once a firm grasp is achieve, the next step would be to take that relationship and explain how it plays in a role in destroying things that really wreck havoc in our bodies.
How Flies Can Help Us Understand Our Health
Think outside the box when it comes to a quick way to lengthen your life. Are there really any unique ways to increase our lifespan? How about we look at how flies can do exactly that. Sure, you heard me. Taking a deeper look at flies can assist us to develop a higher understand our very own microbiome.
Fruit flies have a median life span of about forty days if they are not eaten quicker via a hungry animal looking for food. After doing a bit of research, I found when scientists fed the flies a mixture of probiotics and an natural supplement called Triphala, they were able to lengthen the lifestyles of the flies by as many as 26 days. The flies had a decreased risk of degenerative issues (for a fly) including extended insulin resistance and infection. The amazing part about it was those outcomes happened because of the completely altered composition of the microbiota affected by the the probiotics, which are living bacteria in their own right.
Gut Health And Cancer
How is it possible to draw a correlation between gut health and cancer treatment? Once you break it down, is it possible to look at the similar characteristics with cancer cells and immune cells?
When it comes to cancer and curing it, let's look outside the box as to why our intestine bacteria can play a dominant function in most cancers immunotherapies, and why it's the brand new frontier of fighting this ailment.
Cancer immunotherapies activate the immune device to attack the tumor. The final results of the therapy varies not only because everyone is completely in terms of how they respond to environmental factors, but the bugs residing on your gut are crucial in determining whether the therapy will be a hit-or-miss.
Relationship Between Immune System And Inflammation
There is a strong relationship between a healthy microbiome and a healthy gut. If unhealthy, this can cause significant cell damage and inflammation. Are you doing all you can to reduce gut inflammation
It's important to sometimes go back to the fundamentals concerning the “Bugs,” or the microbiome in our gut. Now, our bodies contain thirty to fifty trillion additional cells of microorganisms living in your intestines, and though, these microorganism do not weigh a significant amount in terms of pounds, they really improve our health in numerous ways that extend far beyond this article. The primary place to begin looking at our microbiome is within the gut itself.
Recent analysis has shown that the smart microorganisms move in tandem with the thin tissue cells lining of the gut so, the ultimately the cells of the immune system fight the unhealthy microorganisms like the most common forms of food poisoning, Salmonella. Now, salmonella evokes a powerful inflammatory reaction.
Antibiotics Don't Work On Viruses
A large reason why I enjoy and have a passion for gut health is because for many, it is a new frontier to look at how to become healthy. Looking at your digestion and microbiome is something "out-of-the-ordinary" and not your typical, "eat broccoli, exercise, get sleep" mantra that you see all over social media. This different approach compelled me to talk about antibiotics. ⠀
Let's start out by saying you're a mayor of a small town, enjoying life and everything is going great. Then let's pretend there are a rash of burglaries at some resident's homes. How would you react and what would you do as mayor? The first step would be get the police to investigate and talk to neighbors that might have seen something, the key word being "investigate". But what would happen if you unilaterally decided to throw everyone in your town in jail? ⠀(To continue reading, listen to, or download the podcast, follow the link).
I've discovered in many instances, being obese starts with poor digestion. If not controlled, obesity originates from poor digestion in the gut.
In this week's episode of the Go With Your Gut Podcast, I share my secret as to how reducing inflammation can stop obesity. If addressed early, it would serve as a road map as to how to keep your child from becoming obese. But regardless if a child or an adult, the core commonality is that diet has an effects on gut microbiome and obesity.

How does bacteria rule our bodies? Is it possible that the microbiome controls more than we think than just in our gut?
Have you ever wondered where can you use probiotics on your body? In this podcast episode of Got With Your Gut, I dive into the aspects of why probiotics are all over our bodies and a lot of microbiome can assist us in becoming healthier. Can probiotics be effective on your body or in our bodies other than our guts?
