Gut Biology And Health
What is the science behind how the gut works? How it functions & its importance is fascinating & necessary in understanding what can we learn from the gut.
There are so many interesting things about how our gut microbiome works in our bodies, from helping us to digest foods, to strengthening our immune system, to helping us regulate our mood and hormones. But how does it all work in tandem?
Exercise To Increase Digestive Power
What's the best way to eliminate waste from the body. In order to find that digestive power increase, you might need to begin an exercise routine.
If you think about it from a physiological standpoint, getting around and actually moving would, in tur, create movement in the bowels, and that in turn, promote the excretion of waste in the body. But what kind of movements are important?
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.
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.
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?
The Secret Of Nature Vs. Nurture
Do you have strong gut bacteria? When it comes to the genetic makeup of that bacteria, does nature or nurture play a bigger role in it's health? These questions can be answered by looking at our intestinal fitness and intestine microbiome from a nature versus nurture aspect to determine which has the bigger and more effect.
The composition of the microbiome differs from person to person, with each one having a different bacterial makeup. For a long time, it's been thought that this variability finds its origins in our variations in our genes. This is the nature component of it.
Do You get anxiety from food? Does that sound strange or how would you even know? Are there anxiety foods that help gut bacteria that in turn helps your anxiety?
Imagine a existence without bacteria living in, on, and around your intestine. How might you might be living: more sickness or healthier? Regardless of your physical health, you would in all likelihood sense stressful and depressed, with little preference to see associates and your own family. at least that is what research has shown in mice with limited gut bacteria.
How To Lower High Blood Sugar Fast Without Insulin
Why is it that the gut microbiome can improve blood sugar. When it comes to type 2 diabetes especially, better regulated blood sugar can be explained with gut health. It's important to know the correlation between blood sugar and more specifically type 2 diabetes, and then in turn, use the health and strength of our gut to resolve the issue.
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.
