How to fix your gut to then fix your immune system...!
Allergies are steadily increasing and scientists have been working to certainly establish a correlation between our gut good bacteria (microbiome) and the development of allergies.
What is a microbiome ?
From our birth we begin our life interacting with the environment. Food, hygiene, toys, they all play a role in colonising, developing and establishing a balance in our gut bacteria.
These good bacterias in our gut are important to develop a proper immune system. How?
Immune cells will encounter gut bacterias and this play a crucial role in the education of our immune system.
We can say then: A proper development of microbiome is necessary to prevent immune system related pathologies, such as allergies.
What about chronic diseases? Are they also somehow related to our microbiome?
There has not been a proven answer yet. However, how many people have you heard had substantial benefits just by changing diet?
We have witnessed many people improving just by changing their food habits. Sounds unrealistic? Well, try it!
It is so easy to immediately throw yourself to drugs. You just have to take a simple pill, but how sure are you it will work? most importantly, how sure are you it won't cause you other problems?
For some pathologies you have no choice but to take medications. However, this does not mean you should not start from treating your gut and body.
The reality is: it is very difficult to stick to those diets. Not to mention the difficulty you may have choosing and starting a diet protocol.
What we suggest you is to ask as many questions as you can come up with. It is your life and wellbeing, you MUST ask.
Read about people experiences. Social media made informations go faster and reach everyone. Use it wisely.
In case you are experiencing problem with your gut microbiome there are 3 ways you can work:
1) Probiotics: defined as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host”. Their effectiveness may depend on the time of intervention and aspects of the current microbiota composition.
2) Prebiotics: they are non-digestible food which act by stimulating the growth of certain bacterial colonies in your gut.
3) Synbiotics: when the use of a combination of prebiotics and probiotics produce synergistic health benefits it is described as a symbiotic.
Moreover, their intake should be suggested by a doctor. There are many types of probiotics on the market. Deciding which one is best for you does not depend on the marketing but rather on their composition and amount.
It is never too late to heal your gut. Healing your gut most likely will heal other conditions in your body.
Decide wisely your food and drinks. As a parent take careful care of your child... what he/she eats may define their future diseases.
Let us now about you:
Have you ever taken probiotics?
If so how many times a day?
Your story means a lot to all of us! By sharing good and reliable information we can hope to improve the life of people suffering from chronic conditions.
