Human Intestines function like a second brainPosted: February 1, 2012
The gut is finally getting some of the credit it deserves. A recent Clever Apes segment on WBEZ shares some of the important functions nervous system in your gut – the enteric nervous system. This system runs independent of the brain in your head. The health and well-being of your enteric nervous system plays a major role in your overall health. Something Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride has been showing clinically since her first edition of Gut and Psychology Syndrome(GAPS) came out in 2004. Heal and seal the intestinal lining through diet and lifestyle changes and your health can make a change for the better.
Now scientists at Rush University Medical Center are investigating a hypothesis that diseases in the brain are coming from issues in the gut, not the other way around. In fact the types of microbes within the gut could potentially determine the type of diseases exhibited such as Parkinson’s.
What do you know about your world within? What are bacteria, viruses, protozoa and other microbes doing in you? Are they for you? Against you? Taking antibiotics will kill them all off for the short-term, but what type of microbes does your inner environment support to thrive and return after the massacre? Your dietary and lifestyle choices play a major role in creating and maintaining the creatures within.
