Doctors have skills to identify disease by where they are located. If you have asthma, it’s considered a lung problem; if you have rheumatoid arthritis, it must be a joint problem; if you have acne, doctors see it as a skin problem; if you are overweight, you must have a metabolism problem; if you have allergies, immune imbalance is blamed.

Doctors who understand health this way are both right and wrong. Sometimes the causes of your symptoms do have some relationship to their location, but that’s far from the whole story.

As we come to comprehend infection in the 21st century, our old methods for characterizing disease in view of side effects is not extremely valuable. 

Rather, by comprehension the sources of illness and the route in which the body works as one, entire, coordinated biological community, we now realize that manifestations showing up in one territory of the body may be brought on by awkward nature in a totally distinctive framework.

In the event that your skin is awful or you have sensitivities, can’t get in shape, experience the ill effects of an immune system infection or hypersensitivities, battle with fibromyalgia, or have repeating migraines, the genuine reason may be that your gut is undesirable. This may be genuine regardless of the possibility that you have NEVER had any digestive protestations.

There are numerous other conceivable lopsided characteristics in your body’s working framework that may drive ailment, too. These incorporate issues with hormones, safe capacity, detoxification, vitality generation, and then some. Be that as it may, for the present, how about we investigate the gut and why it might be at the base of your ceaseless indications.
Side effects Throughout the Body Are Resolved By Treating the Gut

Numerous today do have digestive issues including reflux or acid reflux, bad tempered gut, bloating, blockage, loose bowels, and colitis. Truth be told, midsection issues represent more than 200 million specialist’s visits and billions in medicinal services costs yearly. Be that as it may, gut issues cause infection a long ways past the gut. In therapeutic school, I discovered that patients with colitis could likewise have excited joints and eyes and that patients with liver disappointment could be cured of ridiculousness by taking anti-infection agents that murdered the poison creating microorganisms in their gut. Might it be able to be that when things are not exactly directly down beneath, it influences the soundness of our whole body and numerous infections we haven’t connected before to lopsided characteristics in the digestive framework?

The answer is a resonating yes. Normalizing gut capacity is a standout amongst the most critical things I accomplish for patients, and it’s so straightforward. The “reactions” of treating the gut are very phenomenal. My patients discover help from sensitivities, skin break out, joint pain, migraines, immune system ailment, despondency, consideration shortage, and then some—regularly after years or many years of misery. Here are a couple of illustrations of the outcomes I have accomplished by tending to uneven characters in the capacity and greenery of the gut:

A 58-year-old woman with many years of worsening allergies, asthma, and sinusitis who was on frequent antibiotics and didn’t respond to any of the usual therapies was cured by eliminating a worm she harbored in her gut called Strongyloides.

A 52-year-old woman who suffered with daily headaches and frequent migraines for years, found relief by clearing out the overgrowth of bad bugs in her small intestine with a new non-absorbed antibiotic called Xifaxin.

A six-year-old girl with severe behavioral problems including violence, disruptive behavior in school, and depression was treated for bacterial yeast overgrowth, and in less than 10 days, her behavioral issues and depression were resolved.

A three-year-old boy with autism started talking after treating a parasite called Giardia in his gut.

Research Linking Gut Flora and Inflammation To Chronic Illness

Scientists compared gut flora or bacteria from children in Florence, Italy who ate a diet high in meat, fat, and sugar to children from a West African village in Burkina Faso who ate beans, whole grains, vegetables, and nuts.(i) The bugs in the guts of the African children were healthier, more diverse, better at regulating inflammation and infection, and better at extracting energy from fiber. The bugs in the guts of the Italian children produced by-products that create inflammation, promote allergy, asthma, autoimmunity, and lead to obesity.

Why is this important?

In the West, our increased use of vaccinations and antibiotics and enhancements in hygiene have lead to health improvements for many. Yet these same factors have dramatically changed the ecosystem of bugs in our gut, and this has a broad impact on health that is still largely unrecognized.

There are trillions of bacteria in your gut, and they collectively contain at least 100 times as many genes as you do. The bacterial DNA in your gut outnumbers your own DNA by a very large margin. This bacterial DNA controls immune function, regulates digestion and intestinal function, protects against infections, and even produces vitamins and nutrients.
The connections between gut flora and system-wide health don’t stop there. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that you could cure or prevent delirium and brain fog in patients with liver failure by giving them an antibiotic called Xifaxan to clear out bugs that produce toxins their poor livers couldn’t detoxify.(v) Toxins from bacteria were making them insane and foggy. Remove the bacteria that produce the toxins, and their symptoms clear up practically overnight.

Other similar studies have found that clearing out overgrowth of bad bugs with a non-absorbed antibiotic can be an effective treatment for restless leg syndrome(vi) and fibromyalgia.(vii)

Even obesity has been linked to changes in our gut ecosystem that are the result of a high-fat, processed, inflammatory diet. Bad bugs produce toxins called lipopolysaccardies (LPS) that trigger inflammation and insulin resistance or pre-diabetes and thus promote weight gain.(viii)

It seems remarkable, but the little critters living inside of you have been linked to everything from autism to obesity, from allergy to autoimmunity, from fibromyalgia to restless leg syndrome, from delirium to eczema to asthma. In fact, the links between chronic illness and gut bacteria keep growing every day.

So what can you do to keep your gut flora balanced and your gut healthy, and thus overcome or avoid these health problems?
Five Steps to a Healthy Gut (and a Healthy Body)

Follow these five simple steps to begin re-balancing your gut flora:

Eat a fiber–rich, whole foods diet—it should be rich in beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, all of which feed good bugs.

Limit sugar, processed foods, animal fats, and animal protein—these provide food for unhealthy bugs.

Avoid the use of antibiotics, acid blockers, and anti-inflammatories—they change gut flora for the worse.

Take probiotics daily—these healthy, friendly flora can improve your digestive health and reduce inflammation and allergy.

Consider specialized testing—such as organic acid testing, stool testing (new tests can look at the DNA of the bacteria in your gut), and others to help assess your gut function. You will likely have to work with a functional medicine practitioner to effectively test and treat imbalances in your gut.
