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?
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.
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.
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.
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).
Why do probiotics help you go to the bathroom?
Many people have commented to me that they go to the bathroom after consuming probiotics or more specifically kombucha or kefir. So is this the best way to remove toxins from your colon?
In this podcast episode of The Mental Minute, I discuss why do probiotics help you go to the bathroom.

Digestive Enzymes Help You Lose Weight
What are probiotics and what are enzymes and why are they important for you? Are there any side effects of taking digestive enzymes? Is there a way you can tell if you need digestive enzymes?
If you picture the way that you eat in your digestive system, picture it just as one long tube. On the inside of that tube are these little like toothbrush type bristles that line all of inside of the tube. Now, those are the probiotics and as you eat foods, what happens is the food travels down that tube and those little villi, those probiotics, secrete enzymes which, then, in turn, helps to break down the food so that you can use the vitamins and minerals and nutrients from those foods.
Can Prebiotics Help With Acid Reflux?
What is prebiotic fiber? Is it beneficial to our gut bacteria and digestive health? In today's episode of the Go With Your Gut Podcast, I look at what I think is a food group that is absolutely vital to better gut health and digestion: prebiotics and prebiotic foods.
It seems everyone knows what a probiotic is, but rarely do people mention prebiotics in the same breath. It's important to know the differences between probiotics and prebiotics simply because one is living bacteria and one is food for that living bacteria. The old adage "You Are What You Eat" holds true for our gut bacteria too. If you want to read more, or listen to or download this podcast, follow the link.
Probiotics Reduce Inflammation
If you believe in probiotics, you've probably wondered "When's the best time to take probiotics?" or "What are the best probiotics to take?" Before you address that, let's look at the truth. Getting into the best physical, mental, and emotional shape takes planning, education, and research. More specifically, it begins with better gut and digestive health. Probiotics are the key, but knowing what the best sources of probiotics to take or which natural sources of probiotics will benefit you long term is JUST as important as taking it themselves. Where do you begin to learn which probiotics are important to your health? To continue reading, listen t,o, or download this podcast, follow the link.
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.
