Dr. Pramila Vishvanath

Sharing the wisdom of treating every individual as a whole person rather than a collection of symptoms or fragmenting the body into several disease diagnoses.

I’ve Got a Gut Feeling

Getting to know you,
Getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you,
Getting to hope you like me.

(Lyrics from King and I)

This lyric popped in my mind as I was reviewing the literature on microbiomes.

For the past 50 years, in my quest to find balance in health and prevention of dis-ease, I have studied Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and Naturopathy.

The underlying message in these systems of therapies is – change the terrain to prevent “bugs” from growing to cause illness. Whereas in my study of Allopathy or Modern medicine, they claim that “kill the bug” to stop the illness is the best way, however, there is a time and place for these options.

Dr. Deepak Chopra has written this very thought provoking article on obesity and the microbiome. A must read when it comes to understanding why fad diets do not work.

The Microbiome: A Startling Solution to the Obesity Epidemic

If I am King, then I must get to know my microbiomes!
