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".

A Healthy Gut Says You Won't Be Sick
A healthy gut doesn't mean you won't ever be sick. The human gut microbiome in health and disease can control how long you're sick, but not necessarily that you won't ever get sick.
So what is it about sickness, and can you get sick if you have a good, strong, healthy gut? And the answer is absolutely yes. I'm living proof of that. I got sick just recently, and I like to pride myself that I have a good, strong, healthy gut. The point is is that I don't shy away from sickness, I'm not a germaphobe, I actually welcome it, you know, for the fact that I'm trying to build up my immune system.
Brain Cells In The Gut
This is the second part of the 10 most amazing things that you probably didn't know about your digestive health. Today we're gonna be talking about number six, is that there is a correlation between gut health and bone density. It was mentioned about how serotonin was produced in your gut. If your body doesn't have enough serotonin, there has been shown to be a decrease in bone density.
Number seven, there's a link between autism and fewer strains of good bacteria in your gut. People with autism generally have digestive related issues, whether it's leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, or as I mentioned, fewer bacteria strains.
What Is Cholesterol And How To Reduce It?
Has cholesterol received a bad rap? I know if I was to say the word "cholesterol", I bet your immediate thought would be something negative, possibly your thoughts would head to heart problems, blood flow, and things you should eliminate from your diet. But is it all of the negatives and none of the positives?
Cholesterol is actually a beneficial component of our health. It is needed to help regulate aspects of inflammation that we need in order to survive. In my recent podcast, I try to dispel a few myths as to why cholesterol is our friend, and how we can use it to benefit our bodies. To listen or download this podcast, follow the link.
