The Health & The Gut Connection
There are so many longstanding health conditions that science is now discovering to have its roots in the gut microbiome, that it’s now becoming a well accepted fact.
Did you know that almost 80% of our immune system is located within the gut and there are almost as many neurotransmitters in the gut as there are in the brain. There is most definitely a very strong link with the gut and brain.
The gut microbiome is defined as the collective genomes of the microbes (composed of bacteria, bacteriophage, fungi, protozoa and viruses) that live inside the gut. Did you know that we have 2x’s as many microbial cells as human cells? It makes you wonder who is really hosting whom?
Either way, it’s safe to say that paying attention to the gut is extremely important when approaching any wellness protocol.
There are over a dozen conditions which have been linked to an imbalance in the gut microbiome:
“All Health Begins in the Gut…” – Hippocrates
It’s no wonder that the founder of modern medicine, Hippocrates, stated that “All health begins in the gut…” We’ve experienced this first hand in our own healing journey to wellness.
Once the focus was placed on re-balancing the gut microbiome through diet, eradication of pathogens and biofilm, and recolonization of the gut with friendly bacteria, our health issues began to vanish.
Once you give the body the proper environment to heal itself, it can do so – and within a short period of time. That proper environment includes balancing the gut microbiome.
The Doctors Dilemma
The problem is that no 2 sufferers will have the exact same symptoms and there really is no hard and fast test one can take in order to properly asses it. This is part of the frustration and agony that fibro/IBS sufferers will often go through. Because you know you don’t feel good, regardless of what name others or doctors want to call it.
The point is to feel better, but in order to do that, this condition must be addressed at the root level. And the root level is usually found in the gut.
We’ve written a guidebook that is now available for free, on exactly the steps to take in order to create the proper environment for gut health. It’s available on the next page.
