How Are You Managing

What is the Microbiome?
Microbiome The human microbiome is the population of more than 100 trillion microorganisms that live in our gut, mouth, skin and elsewhere in our bodies. These microbial communities have numerous beneficial functions relevant to supporting life. They are needed to digest food, to prevent disease-causing bacteria from invading the body, and to synthesize essential nutrients and vitamins.

WHY do I need to know about MY Microbiome?
Gut Status What we eat effects our own microbiome. It will shift in response to what we eat every day. Even the antibiotics that we ingest or use on our skin - like antibacterial soap! When our microbiome bacteria shifts, so do our genes. When our genes shift in a negative direction, our health suffers.
Keeping our gut microbiota healthy and diverse can be a tricky process. Some scientists are saying that your microbiota could be the key to major chronic diseases including autoimmune diseases, asthma, diabetes even obesity and many other illnesses.

Our mothers have always told us - and it still rings true: “We are what we Eat” and now we have more recent science research on the microbiome backing this.
    Foods That Improve Your Gut Microbiome: Probiotic Foods
  • Breast milk
  • Fermented foods: kimchi, sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt
  • High fiber, plant-based diet
  • Eat a variety of vegetables.
  • Moderate amounts of chicken and fish
  • Small amounts of beef or lamb
  • Prebiotic foods like Jerusalem artichoke, onions, and garlic
    Foods & Medicines That Decrease GOOD Gut Microbiome:
  • Refined sugar
  • Trans fats
  • Tylenol (acetaminophen)
  • Antibiotics
  • Excess alcohol
  • Infant commercial formulas

Microbiome Testing
At this time, two companies: uBiome Testing and American Gut offer services for microbiome results. This is a fun way for people to take a peek at their personal microbiome and to see how they fit in with their larger human community.

See Videos that help explain this unique phenomenon:

May 17, 2015: Dr. David Perlmutter about his new book, Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain-for Life. Dr. Mercola interviews Dr Perlmutter who explains the quality, quantity, and composition of the bacteria in your gut have enormous influence on your brain.

Feb 23, 2015: Rob Knight is a pioneer in studying human microbes.
He uncovers the secret ecosystem (or "microbiome") of microbes that inhabit our bodies -- and the bodies of every creature on earth. In the process, he’s discovered a complex internal ecology that affects everything from weight loss to our susceptibility to disease.

Aug 19, 2014: Gut Bacteria Making You Fat?
Dr. Raphaell Kellman Shares Microbiome Diet
...I love his book: Microbiome Diet. Dr. Kellman is a pioneer in functional medicine who has a holistic and visionary approach to healing. In 17 years of practice, he has treated more than 40,000 patients, many of whom have come to him from all over the world and after suffering without help for years.

Feb 8, 2013: Elaine Hsiao is a postdoctoral fellow in chemistry and biology at Caltech. She received her undergraduate degree in microbiology, immunology and molecular genetics from UCLA. She is currently studies the how the human microbiota influences health and disease.

Nov 14, 2012: The gut flora: You and your 100 trillion friends: Jeroen Raes at TEDxBrussels Jeroen Raes is a bionaut, he researches the human microbiome. He's discovered in his lab; not just in gastro-intestinal medicine, but in our fundamental knowledge of the human biology. The implications for Crohn's Disease or obesity could be dramatic.

May 23, 2012: Dr. Jessica Green wants people to understand how the microbial blueprint of our bodies, homes, cities and forests impacts our world and our future. Her current goal is to help people visualize the invisible world of microorganisms to foster a world full of buildings that limit infectious disease and maximize energy.

Books: Microbiome
The following books will help you navigate the world of the microbiome, microbiota and the gut micro flora. It is quite a fascinating subject. As you can see by the dates of the publications, this is still a very newly researched "science project" that is truly revealing what helps us get well faster than any man made chemistry: proper food.
