We’ve only recently begun to understand the extent of the gut flora’s role in human health and disease. Among other things, the gut flora promotes normal gastrointestinal function, provides protection from infection, regulates metabolism and comprises more than 75% of our immune system. Dysregulated gut flora has been linked to diseases ranging from autism and depression to autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s, inflammatory bowel disease and type 1 diabetes.
Unfortunately, several features of the modern lifestyle directly contribute to unhealthy gut flora:
Antibiotics and other medications like birth control and NSAIDs
Diets high in refined carbohydrates, sugar and processed foods
Diets low in fermentable fibers
Dietary toxins like wheat and industrial seed oils that cause leaky gut
The condition and quality of your gut affects your health. The impact is not limited to digestive issues alone. The negative effects of an unhealthy, unbalanced gut microflora can affect all the organs in the body, including the brain.
In our gut, we have trillions of different bacteria, yeast and viruses. We have both good ones and bad ones. The population of the good bacteria keeps the bad bacteria under control. The bad bacteria still play roles in the maintenance of health and gut balance, as long as their population does not overrun the population of the beneficial bacteria. If the bad bacteria become too many in the gut, an imbalance occurs. This is when problems start to be seen in different areas of the body. Most often, the imbalance will produce symptoms involving the digestive system. As the imbalance worsens, other organs will be affected, such as the heart, blood vessels, and including the brain.
Read this book and improve your life and health by transforming your gut microflora. This is the time to finally regain control of your health by controlling the conditions and activity of the bacteria in your gut.
