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.
Allergy Symptoms In Poor Digestive System
What is that that causes allergies to affect negatively your immune system? Does a compromised immune system cause allergies or are allergies low immune system causes?
If you've followed this blog for a while, you know that I strongly believe there is a connection our microbiome has in fighting seasonal and chronic allergies. Now, it's important to note that food allergies have ballooned by over 45% in kids since the mid-nineties. There are numerous theories, and I have tried to hypothesize why. The one gaining the foremost traction stems from the drastic modified food choices kids face today. This change (and not for the better) in modified feeding habits has altered the microbiome composition of a majority of teens.
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).

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.
How To Reduce A Hangover
So what exactly is the best remedy for a hangover? If we knew that, we might be able to tackle exactly why hangovers happen. So if you do decide to drink (and drink heavily) and get a hangover, is there a simple solution to reduce the effects of drinking too much alcohol? ,
When you experience a hangover, it is generally an overdose of residual toxins, sugars, and alcohol that has yet to be eliminated from your body. But why does this happen? If you had optimal digestion and a strong immune system, would these toxins be removed more quickly, thereby reducing a hangover?
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.
How Can Probiotics Help You Have More Energy?

As we go through life, we should always be looking to biohack our body to get it to perform optimally, and this includes adding probiotics to your digestive system. So is possible that probiotics can improve your life? The bottom line is that good digestion increases energy levels, and who doesn't want that?
Digestion Immune System
I'm gonna be giving you 10 amazing facts you probably didn't know about your digestive system. Number one, that the gut is the only organ in the body that can actually function without regulatory oversight from the brain. Even your heart can't do that. Number two, there are over a hundred million brain cells located in your gut. That's actually more that's than found in the spinal cord and the peripheral nervous 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.
