Will Bacteria Become Resistant To Antibiotics?
How dangerous is the epidemic of bacterial resistance to antibiotics? With the overuse of antibiotics, there is more and more resistant bacteria.
I want to begin discussing the real threat that antibacterial resistance has based upon the overuse of antibiotics. As humans we face a number of threats from the environment, but none actually may loom larger than the one post by antibiotic resistance and through our over prescription, poor regulation, agricultural abuse and weeks suppl chain, hyper resilient bacteria is coming. You can see more and more talk about it in the articles in the news today and based on the state of the prescription industry, it could get worse in five or 10 years down the road.
How To Clean Your Gut Of Bad Bacteria
What should you do to eliminate bad bacteria? Most turn to probiotics, but probiotics are not a cure all for ill gut health. Knowing what to eat it key.
It's important to discuss why fighting bad bacteria in our bodies will always be a daily thing. You know, there will always be bad bacteria in our bodies, and actually that's okay. The main objective is really having a healthy digestive system. It's not to eliminate all of the bad bacteria, but having more good bacteria than bad, which I believe is done best through eating fermented foods, but many take probiotic supplements.
How Does Diet And Lifestyle Affect Gut Bacteria?
What is the significant relationship between your dna and gut health, and how is your own personalized gut bacteria affected by your dna and can it be manipulated by the bacteria of others?
Looking a bit more about fecal transplants, we understand that the purpose is to take healthy gut bacteria and microbes from one human and implant them into another more damaged gut to see if it can be repaired. But how does this affect the DNA of both and whether it can be healthy for the recipient. The first part to discus the short term versus the long term effects. Here we'll discuss applications.
The Science Of DNA In Gut Bacteria
So what exactly is a fecal transplant? When you pass bacterial filled feces from one person to another is gut bacteria affected by the dna?
In the age of strong gut health, there is a very unique topic that should at least be mentioned, which is fecal transplants of gut bacteria. Now, I realize this might be a little cringe worthy but once you understand that probiotics assist in removing bad bacteria and toxins from a bowel movement you'll realize this isn't so far fetched.
Do Vaccines Work Against Bacterial Infections?
What are vaccines and how do they work? Is there some relationship between how vaccines affect our gut and our immune system to the point where we might consider whether it would be probiotics vs. vaccines?
All of us is acquainted with the idea of what a vaccination. A crippled virus is injected via a shot, and the immune system prepares itself for the attack of the real virus someday later. But did you realize that it is feasible to do some thing similar with micro organisms?
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.
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).
How do you get your body back in balance? Is there a why how to get your body in balance without upsetting the body's "apple cart"?
In this episode of The Mental Minute, I first address the fact that diseases are not natural, and based on research it seems there is a trend questioning are humans becoming unhealthy. In under a minute, I share my thoughts on why is society becoming unhealthy.

Pharmaceuticals Stop Symptoms, Not Cures
How does one develop bacterial resistance to antibiotics? Is it because pharmaceuticals don't work or is it because our bodies are constantly evolving?
I've always looked at our gut microbiome as a way we achieve optimal health. How is that possible? Well, we know an approach that doesn't work, that's visiting the doctor and obtaining prescriptions for pharmaceutical drugs. What I find fascinating is despite over a trillion dollars of research expenditures, few curative drugs have been invented. You ever thought about that? Antibiotics for bacterial infections are almost the only candidate, and bacteria are already evolving and developing resistance on the current list of antibiotics that we have on the marketplace today.
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.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
