It may ultimately lead to millions around the globe finally overcoming their chronic conditions: top doctors within the medical establishment are finally going public in big ways over what’s really causing disease in our modern society.
What’s more, the media is picking it up like wildfire. The best part? We’ve been telling you about it for years.
The ‘secret’ has to do with your gut, and what’s going on inside it. More specifically, it has to do with what countless bacteria strains are doing in your gut. Like warriors, tiny bacteria wage war around the clock for intestinal dominance, deciding the fate of your immune system’s integrity.
There’s the ‘good’ bacteria, known as probiotics, and then there’s the ‘bad’ bacteria. The bad guys are what can lead to infections, and the ‘good’ guys are equally as disgusting under a microscope, but actually ‘battle’ the bad guys. The probiotic strains ultimately make up your first line of defense — your true ‘immune system’ when it comes to the frontlines of disease fighting.
How We Ruin Our Gut In Modern Society
As you can imagine, modern society has really displaced the ultra-delicate balance of good vs. bad bacteria within the gut. The biggest offender: antibiotics. While an amazing invention when it comes to killing off the bad bacteria, antibiotics don’t know how to differentiate between good and bad strains. They absolutely wipe everything out, and in a big way.
Just a few courses of antibiotics for a developing baby can alter the future integrity of the immune system like few other factors. Without properly resupplying probiotics to the body, a deep imbalance has been shown to lead to a host of conditions — including:
- Mental illness
- Decreased immune system
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Digestive disorders
- And many other conditions now being documented by scientific research.
But let’s flash back for a moment to 2011. That’s when I first started writing on the developing research that was revealing to us how antibiotics and other gut-disruptors were wreaking havoc on your health and even making you mentally ill. That was 4 years ago, with 4 years worth of those suffering from chronic diseases listed above not being told to fix their imbalance.
Not to mention 4 years worth of medical establishment trolls labeling it as ‘alternative health’ quackery — a tone which should now change as even the mainstream medical system has began integrating it into its protocols.
Healing the Imbalance
Now, with this information finally unleashed on the public, we can begin to heal the guts of those who are stricken with serious conditions. Thankfully, it’s extremely easy to get started in doing so.
My top recommendations include:
- Taking a quality probiotic with a high amount of strain activity (at least 1 billion CFU count for those with an imbalance) daily
- Eating fermented foods like kimchi
- Drinking organic kombucha, which is probiotic-rich tea
- Eating slower, making it easier for your body to digest without being disrupted. Aim to chew your food 20 times before swallowing.
All of these tips can be started today, and can make a major difference when it comes to the serious health onslaught brought on by modern society’s double-edged sword of healthcare. There’s no question that the microbiome is one the keys to conquering disease and getting your health to optimum levels, and it’s powerful news when top doctors are now coming out and admitting it.
