Microbiome; Front and Center

The Human Super OrganismHow Understanding the Microbiome Can Help Us?

Putting the microbiome front and center in health care, in preventive strategies, and in health-risk assessments could decrease the rise of chronic diseases.

Dr. Rodney Dietert just published his book on this topic, The Human Superorganism: How the Microbiome Is Revolutionizing the Pursuit of a Healthy Life. Dieterts’ book focuses on the study of microbiome diversity as it relates to our immune system. 

Rodney Dietert, Ph.D. is an internationally-known author, lecturer, scientist and professor of Immunotoxicology at Cornell.

His area of study focuses on how the origins of  asthma, autism, Alzheimer’s, allergies, cancer, heart disease, obesity, and even some kinds of depression are linked to our organisms which reside in our gut. We now know that the microbiome is responsible for our immune system function and has a direct link to our brain, controlling the neurotransmitters that produce our “feel good hormones.”  

Rodney Dietart MicrobiomeAward-winning researcher on the microbiome,  Rodney Dietert, presents this new paradigm in human biology that has emerged.

Dieters states,Given the intimate relationship between the human immune system and the microbiome, it is not surprising that alterations in our microbial makeup can greatly affect health.”

We couldn’t agree more and are so excited to see new information coming out daily from top experts on the human microbiome and it’s connection to the immune system and brain function.

In his book Dietert explains macrobiotic self care and how important probiotics are for maintaining strong immune system health.

Is the Key to Mental Health in your Gut?

Gut Health and Mental Health

We know the gut is responsible for a lot of our functions but did you know that it is the main conductor of the brain.

We are learning more every day how critical it is to have a healthy gut. We have some of the latest findings about the microbiome to share with you.

For one thing the bodies critical brain chemicals are produced in the gut.

How we respond to stress, our outlook on life and even our food cravings are affected by our bodies ability to produce and balance serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.

What is the gut brain connection?

We sat down with microbiologist Kiran Krishnan, and he explained just how these trillions of bacteria in our gut affect our mental health. Kiran explained how these happy brain chemicals known as the “feel good” transmitters are produced in our gut.

Krishnan has been studying the gut for the past 12 years, and has several clinical trials running which study the role of our gut flora on our systems.

He says that 95 % of our dopamine is produced in our gut along with a vast majority of serotonin, norepinephrine and epinephrine. It’s this careful balance of chemicals responsible for brain function that effects our every day life in so many ways.

What functions of the brain are controlled by the gut?

    • mood
    • energy levels
    • motivation
    • attention
    • pleasure
    • alertness
    • compulsions
    • addictions

It’s only in recent years that we have begun looking to psychiatric research about how our digestion and microbiome affect our mental state. When these chemicals are out of balance they can contribute to depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, spectrum disorders and syndromes. The more abundant and diverse our microbiome is the better chance we have of keeping these neurotransmitters in check. Consider adding our human strain, bacillus probiotic to your daily routine or taking a microbiology analysis test to find out where you stand.

How to Win the Battle Over GERD

Acid reflux is commonly referred to as GERD. It is that burning sensation you sometimes get in your chest, and even in your throat, after eating. This is most common after a high protein meal. This is because protein takes more hydrochloric acid, (HCL), for digestion.

When the gut is imbalanced our natural production of HCL is often depleted. Most people think that GERD is due to too much acid in the stomach, but it is usually the need for more of it. Age, Candida overgrowth, parasites, and a torn lining in the digestive tract can all be possible contributors to the reduction of hydrochloric acid.

Supplements that assist with the development of hydrochloric acid, and probiotics, which help balance gut flora can both be very helpful in battling the war with GERD. They are also safe alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs and their detrimental side effects.

The product Metagest  by the company Metagenics is an extremely helpful, safe, and natural solution to increasing HCL. By taking one or two capsules before meals, (depending on the size of the meal), the discomfort of GERD can be reduced or even removed.

Probiotics are a good choice to help balance and heal the gut, but they are also helpful in soothing the burning that can take place in the upper GI due to imbalance in HCL. I like Dr. Ohhira’s by Essential Formulas for this. The soft-gels, when swallowed whole, are made to sustain their way from the small intestines to the large. However, if you bite one open and swallow it the probiotics will begin to work on the backup of candida, undigested food, and HCL in your throat, chest, and upper GI areas. This not only helps to heal the issues at hand, but is also very soothing and can relieve that burning sensation altogether. It is also a safer alternative.                                                                  Karen-Thomas-Image
