Resistant Starches

Resistant starches are starchy foods that are metabolized differently. Resistant starches are foods that do not get broken down and goes into the intestines, turned into short chain fatty acids by the intestinal bacteria, acts like fiber and feeds the healthy bacteria. Ie. Cooked [...]

Grains and Fungal Overgrowths

What is the connection between grains and fungal overgrowths? When we consume grains they down into sugars rapidly. As soon as we consume grains, we have an increase in blood sugars. Within our digestive tract we have an ecosystem of fungi and bacteria that [...]

Stress Response Programming and Developing Microbiome

What is the connection between stress response system and the early colonization of the microbiome? This is an interesting connection. As a clinician, I find it interesting to see how different people respond to stress in different ways and this can be explained by [...]

Gut-Brain Connection

Some of us know that gut-brain connection, when we are stressed and feel those butterflies in our stomach. There are physical and biochemical connections between the brain and the gut. Lymphatic system: There is a direct connection between the gut and brain through the [...]

Intestinal Hyperpermeability

What is Intestinal Hyperpermeability? What is Metabolic Endotoxemia? What is Bacterial Translocation? What is Leaky Gut Syndrome? Do all of these terms really just mean the same thing? What all these terms mean is that the one cell deep lining of our digestive tract [...]

Microbiome-Pets Connection

There is a connection between the microbiome and owning pets. Research shows that people who live with dogs have more diverse microbiomes in comparison to non-pet owners. Children with pets have fewer allergies than non-pet owners. Why is this? Animals have biodiversity in their [...]

Fasting-Microbiome Connection

There is research that shows that fasting helps to increase the biodiversity of the microbiome and there is a dynamic repopulation of the gut flora. “Fasting affects the population dynamics and activities of the gut microbiota, an interplay that impacts the host's fasting biology.” (Secor and Carey, 2016) [...]

Exercise-Microbiome Connection

In a study with mice, mice that exercised had significantly higher amounts of a specific type of good gut bacteria than sedentary mice that were fed the same diet. Studies on humans show that exercise increases gut bacteria richness and diversity. Rats that exercised [...]

THREE-Prong Approach to Treating Biofilms

Biofilms are a collection or community of different types of microorganisms that form together into a slimy, gluey consistency that will adhere to liquidy surface such as mucous membranes of the digestive tract. These biofilms will adhere to the lining of the digestive tract [...]

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy has been around for over 125 years and there are over 6000 published studies that show that ozone therapy is effective and safe for a number of different health issues. Ozone is made of three oxygen atoms attached together. The air that [...]
