Society's Health Is At A Tipping Point
Do you have any idea how real is your food? Looking at how we provide our body with good nutrition, we should always ask how foods can impact us positively.
It seems that the health of our society is at a tipping point. The amount of people eating actual real food made with real ingredients seems to be reducing year to year. When you couple that with how the body treats these fake foods as toxins, it become evident that many are doing more harm than good when it comes to nutrition and eating so-called natural foods.
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.
Bacteria Resistant To Antibiotics Examples
What is antibiotic resistant bacteria and how does bacteria become resistant to antibiotics? Are there any long-term issues if bacteria become antibiotic resistant?
What has been the historical role of antibiotics and how that has led to an overdependence on them. Antibiotics were discovered during World War II and prior to its discovery, thousands of soldiers died from various infections.
When it became evident that antibiotics could easily cure bacterial disease, they became an instant panacea for just about everything, but unfortunately doctors at the time didn't really think that one through and in the beginning they were giving us prophylactics, which set the precedent for overprescription throughout the years soon penicillin.
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.
Probiotics Battle With Antibiotics
Better gut health requires you to know what antibiotic resistance is. Bacteria resistance and antibiotic resistance are correlated for digestive strength.
Understanding this relationship begins at first understanding how toxicity influences the intestine. One very strong and poisonous invader is antibiotics. Of course, there can be some benefit in taking antibiotics, but believing that they are a cure-all and overuse can do significant damage to our gut health and ultimately our toxicity levels and how much good bacteria flora is in our bodies.
How To Repair Gut Lining
Is it possible to keep our intestines healthy? Ultimately, we want to know how to protect it from bacteria in order to keep our immune system strong.
Probiotics have a mission in our bodies to shield the intestinal barrier from breaking down. They also can effect on how tight of a barrier our intestinal cell wall is, and ultimately whether or not it can and will be impenetrable for bad bacteria and toxins. How effective the probiotics are in holding our intestinal cells together serves as the seal between those cell tissues that can ultimately regulate whether or not molecules can enter the bloodstream. But how is its strength determined?
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.
Probiotic Cell Biology
Why are probiotics good for you and what does probiotics do to your body? When you know how many probiotics in your body, you'll realize their benefits.
Today I'm going to start a series really getting back to basics, and that's explaining probiotics in a way maybe that you might not have heard before. Now, the typical human brain weighs about three pounds and a healthy human body will have over three and a half pounds of probiotic good bacteria and organisms. This and the fact that our heart weighs about three quarters of a pound or so, and our liver weighs about four pounds, makes our probiotic bacteria one of the largest organs in our bodies.
What is the best way to explain the connection between gut bacteria and mental health? Does it have to do with sugar and why sugar is bad for your brain?
I think it's important to address what I believe is common sense when it comes to looking at how your nutrition affects your brain. Now, if your brain is lacking of good-quality nutrition, or free radicals or damaging inflammatory cells are floating around there in that cranial space of yours, can't you see how there might be an increase in brain tissue that's degrading? That seems like common sense, right? And what's fascinating is that for several years, there has been very little research that attempts to look at the ways foods affect moods and vice versa.
Being Around Animals Means Less Gut Stress
Have you ever thought about if our immune system improves with being around animals? A large percentage of people have pets or live around animals daily so is it too far fetched to think animals can help our digestion?
So it might be possible knowing how our relationship with the land can actually make contributions to having a more healthy gut and microbiome. Now, living inside a region where it might be rural or personal homestead might be peaceful and quiet, however, the actual cause why human beings choose to dwell in rural areas for better health might be that they can actually handle stress better than their city-dwelling compadres.
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.
