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.
Gut Health And Cancer
How is it possible to draw a correlation between gut health and cancer treatment? Once you break it down, is it possible to look at the similar characteristics with cancer cells and immune cells?
When it comes to cancer and curing it, let's look outside the box as to why our intestine bacteria can play a dominant function in most cancers immunotherapies, and why it's the brand new frontier of fighting this ailment.
Cancer immunotherapies activate the immune device to attack the tumor. The final results of the therapy varies not only because everyone is completely in terms of how they respond to environmental factors, but the bugs residing on your gut are crucial in determining whether the therapy will be a hit-or-miss.
Why Holistic Health Is Much More Than Preventing Illness
Today I'm going to start a new series about holistic health and how that "whole health" starts in your belly and then radiates out from there.
Health is often understood as the absence of disease or sickness. Now, while this definition is valid, it actually lacks the comprehensiveness of the broader approach. Start assessing your holistic health and wellness on a wider spectrum.
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.
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.
It seems there is no more of a toxic word in American lexicon than that of the word, "Vaccinations". It's important to note this post is not taking a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine stance. It's simply to look at it from a non-linear perspective and completely from a digestive standpoint.⠀
So let's first ask the question, "What is a vaccine?" A vaccine is when you inject a bacterial or virus in your body so that your body responds by creating the proper antibodies in your immune system. The thought is that by creating the antibodies in response to the vaccine, the body would be better able to "defend" itself form the virus. That's the idea of how a vaccine should and would work in "normal" situations. ⠀
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.
