Consciousness MAY BE THE Key To Understanding Reality

Did you know that gut bacterias can influence how you feel, how your immune system responds to the surroundings, and your amount of resistance to disease? As it turns out, a report has found a connection between the very small microbes in your digestive tract and chronic exhaustion. I can’t recall exactly what happened from instant to second while my daughter was in medical center, but I could measure our time in occurrences: Being rolled on the gurney towards theater while my little girl sat on my lap, clutching her most liked doll; sitting silently in the corner of the longing room, trying never to weep, while I thought the scalpel cutting tool piercing her throat; viewing her intubated and unconscious in paediatric intense care, lines working from her body like a spider web; then, after she was awake and extubated, uttering worthless words of comfort while she screamed as they wrapped her firmly in a blanket – effectively a strait jacket – so they could force a feeding pipe down her nose.
Why it’s bad: Your gut is shorthand for your limited lazy lizard brain. If you’ve only made a decision a few times, or find out about a similar situation on the blog somewhere, you may be able to speak a good game, however your gut is guaranteed to be over confident and blind to it’s ignorance. Going with your gut probably means going with the choice that first drew your attention, for whatever arbitrary reason your lizard brain found attractive. Consider it – when you go with your gut, initially you have no idea why your gut is directing you in that direction, and that means you start making up explanations for your self and other people. Ironically, this is called rationalization, even though it’s leading you away from a logical decision and in to a narrative your gut flora influences your health
Before the age of better food health, our foods used to give a rich source of foreign bacteria that our microbiome could plunder for hereditary tools. Bacterias trade genes as easily as humans trade gifts. For instance, the gut bacterias of Japanese people have borrowed genes from a marine species, which now allows those to digest the special glucose in seaweed The marine bacterium eats seaweed, including the types that are used to make nori, a typical sushi ingredient. In the past, when diners wolfed down morsels of nori, some also swallowed seaweed-eating bacterias, which traded genes with those in their own guts.
At Inova Steinmetz Integrative and Functional Medicine Center, all of our doctors are trained to practice acupuncture. Our experience, as well as methodical research, has shown acupuncture effective for many conditions in the gastrointestinal tract. It’s important to look at all treatment options in light of the long term ramifications of many gastrointestinal medications. Acupuncture essentially does not have any side effects. We find that a lot of gastrointestinal problems can be treated with an integrative procedure that includes acupuncture with other complementary modalities.
Preliminary results reveal that a pristine microbiome – of individuals who have experienced little if any connection with Westerners – features much higher biodiversity, including lots of species nothing you’ve seen prior sequenced, and, as mentioned, much higher degrees of prevotella than is normally within the Western gut. Dominguez-Bello says these attractive, diverse and antibiotic-naïve microbiomes may play a role in Amerindians’ markedly lower rates of allergies, asthma, atopic disease and persistent conditions like Type 2 diabetes and coronary disease.
