Microbiomes the pathway to inner peace and balance

Illness is an option

Historically, the great healing traditions of the work from east to west have alleged:

All disease starts in the gut
These various systems of healing developed protocols for gut health through healthy living. But what is gut health?

Science using breakthrough technology has identified colonies of organisms called Microbiomes that live inside and outside the body responsible for various functions and expression.

These organisms include bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi and parasites all living in harmony with checks and balances. If anyone of these microbiomes is out of balance it becomes a pathogen.

You have also heard the axiom you are what you eat!

Microbiomes help transform what you eat into nutrients that your body cannot make like B12 or K2 and help breakdown carbs, fats and protein into absorbable nutrients. In the past we have concentrated on just the foods but what about looking at the microbiomes.

Your Unique Gut Microbiome

There is no such thing as universal healthy food. What’s healthy for one person can be inflammatory for another.

Why the microbiome?
The microbiome plays a significant role in human health and disease. Research has shown links between microbiome health and a number of health issues:

  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Colorectal cancer, and more

The microbes in your gut produce thousands of chemicals, called metabolites, that affect your overall wellness. Some of these microbial metabolites can be beneficial to our health, such as vitamin B and short chain fatty acids, while others can be detrimental, such as TMAO, which causes coronary artery disease.

In Functional Medicine, we use many tests that evaluate your digestion, absorption and elimination of the digestive process along with metabolites- the products of the body’s metabolism. In this way, we can evaluate the function/dysfunction of the various systems in the body before pathology or disease manifests.
