Bacterial Science And Our Body
How are we to stay healthy in a bacterial science world? With so many environmental changes, it should be no secret why bacterial science is changing the world.
There are many areas where bacterial research has shown significant promise. Although these areas might at the cutting edge of probiotics, they might be considered taboo by many. Would you consider them if they might improve your gut health?
Things You Must Know About How Bacteria Evolves
What is the truth of how bacteria evolves? Bacterial evolution affects everyone differently, and there is big money in knowing how bacteria evolves.
Just like all living things, our microbiome has changed through the centuries, and not necessarily always for the better. You probably wouldn't be too surprised if I said that the makeup of our guts and microbiome is significantly different than what was present in humans 100 centuries ago. As we have evolved physically, our behaviors have evolved as well. This natural evolution has been due in large part to those factors that have been intended to simplify or improve our lives.
Who Else Is Lying To Us About The Benefits Of Probiotics?
Is there a quick way to solve health problems using probiotic pills? Most think all probiotics work, but are there reasons why your probiotic pills fail?
The effectiveness of probiotics depends more on choosing the right type of probiotic pill. There are definitely numerous reasons why you might want to begin taking probiotics if you have digestive issues or are looking to improve your gut health, but as much as the media touts their benefits, there are even some negatives (albeit only a few) as to why you might not want to begin taking them or incorporating them into your wellness regimen.
Thinking Differently About Health
Here's why the future of health lies in our gut. It controls how much energy we get from foods. So, if you want to be healthy, start looking in your gut.
I believe the gut microbiome will be in the forefront of what it will mean for us to be holistically healthy. The first step is asking yourself at what stage in your life are you in trying to be at your most optimal health? Are you eating healthy? Are you exercising? Taking supplements? While all of those are useful and are beneficial, all of these things couldn't be accomplished without a living gut that serves as the foundation to be healthy.
How To Get Your Gut Back In Order
What are the most important factors to fix your gut health? Is there a secret to repair it and get energy or new ways to get energy through digestion?
Most would believe that it would be to take probiotics to fix the issues associated with poor gut health, mainly brain fog and inflammation, but taking probiotics is not necessarily the solution. Would there ever be a time that focusing on including probiotics into your supplement regimen would do more harm than good?
Nutrition, Gut Health, And Athletic Performance
Is there a best way to use nutrition to improve athletic performance? Getting the most from foods eaten is important to athletes and their gut health.
Most athletes rarely give consideration to their guts, but they should. Why? It is from within their guts and digestion that athletic performance can be improved. This improvement can be large or small, but it can be the difference between crashing and burning or powering through towards the finish line. But there's so much more to it than eating.
The Delicate Balance Of Thinking And Probiotics
What exactly is healthy thinking? Is it simply thinking healthy or is it understanding how to walk the fine line of good gut health and good thoughts?
Before we answer that, we should look at how probiotics serve as the foundation from which your brain grows efficiently and how that good bacteria can serve as a protector for your brain as well. Once you understand the relationship between your brain (mental health) and your gut microbiome, you can see how important they are to the other.
How The Vagus Nerve Can Help Depression
Why is stimulating the vagus nerve a new component of better mental health? Is this why psychobiotics and the vagus nerve the new health frontier? It seems more treatments of brain disorders can begin in the gut.
In a previous podcast, I explained a new term and really, a “new” type of probiotics that many hadn't heard of before. That term being, “Psychobiotics”. Without going down a rabbit hole or creating a lengthy article, psychobiotics are what you might think of as probiotics, but they perform so much more than the normal gut bacteria we have.
Combinations Of Gut Microbiome
Do we all have the same gut dna? If we are to healthy as an individual, we should know how much does our gut biome differ from others and why it matters.
Just like your DNA, the population and make up of your gut bacteria is unique from everyone else. It's as unique as your fingerprint. There have been estimates of the amount bacteria found in your gut ranges from a trillion to tens of trillions in various combinations in any of the thousands of species that scientists currently know about. In a typical “healthy” gut microbiome, a body should have at least 85% good bacteria with the remaining bad bacteria.
Free Radical Production From Poor Digestion
What exactly are the causes of free radicals? Whether good or bad for us, it's important to find ways to reduce free radical production in our body.
If you were to Google what are some commonalities of many diseases like cancer, ADHD, autism, and other brain-related disorders like Parkinson's and depression, you'd find that oxidative stress is right up there and probably a bodily function that is found in the early stages of these diseases and disorders. So why don't we hear more about it?
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.
