Apocalypses for everything – from cardiovascular disease to cancer – for involving the brain issues there is little information. The researchers still face largely overlooked when it comes to finding cures for many brain disorders despite increasing funding for research dealing with the deeper inner structure and chemistry of the brain.
Of course, this can happen precisely because the answers remain elusive looking or can be looking in the wrong place.
When asked why he robbed banks, the Slick Willie Sutton replied as follows: “Because of their money!” Are. Thus, the perception that the absolutely necessary solutions to the mysteries of brain diseases could remain outside the nervous system can seem contradictory. But what has now been discovered thanks to the work of some scientists who look into the future is a knowledge that makes clear the fundamental role of beneficial bacteria in the determination of brain health.
Yet the 100 trillion bacteria living in the intestine are actively involved in so many aspects of our physiology directly affect brain function. They also affect the long-term health and resistance to disease of the brain.
The microbes that exist in the body as a whole are called microbiome and modulate inflammation, immune system, production of various vitamins, detoxification, carbohydrate metabolism, and even the production of important vitamins neurotransmitters such as serotonin vitamins and dopamine. These are fundamental processes for overall health and for the brain in particular. Thus, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has established the “Research on the human microbiome.
Published studies now show that indeed several brain disorders (Alzheimer’s, autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, migraine, depression, and anxiety) are the only formulations of the bacteria appears to be associated with specific diseases. For example, m characteristics and another completely different form that can identify Parkinson’s.
Recently, I attended a lecture at Harvard by Dr. Max Nieuwdorp, who has extensively published articles on the role of bacteria in regulating metabolism. He addressed in particular type 2 diabetes, a major risk factor for the occurrence of dementia, as well as the fact that changes in gut bacteria associated with this disease. He describes how to reverse many of biomarkers related to diabetes returning the microbiome of diabetes. This was achieved in the laboratory in more than 250 patients through a process called microbial transplant (transplant feces) from healthy donors in the intestine of diabetic patients.
Clearly, this idea raises many doubts. But the method is already applied in the US to more than 150 hospitals to restore another form of bacterial imbalance, a diarrheal disorder called Clostridium difficult. Indeed, this is by far the most effective treatment ever applied for this status.
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease. Knowing that gut bacteria affects the very functioning of the immune system, Australian researchers conducted the transplant feces as treatment with encouraging results. In fact, in America, the University of Arizona has just completed collecting patients to investigate the effectiveness of treatment in autism.
Apart from this method, fortunately, there are other less curious ways to change the intestinal flora. In an experiment conducted by Dr. Emeran Mayer at the University of California, a group of women was given either a placebo, that is a milk product or a milk product enriched with different probiotic. After 4 weeks, the participants underwent a special magnetic resonance imaging of the brain that measured brain activity while showing images of different persons which cause unpleasant feelings.
Brain activation in women who consumed probiotics compared to the other groups, which showed that the calming effect was caused by the bacterial consumption. Imagine, probiotic bacteria can change the way we respond to the world around us!
Knowing how much our general health and the health of our brain are affected by the condition of the bacteria present in our body, it is clear that we must do everything we can to maintain our microbiome balanced.
The following describes eight important things you can do to restore and protect your microbiome:
- Limit the use of antibiotics unless absolutely necessary
Antibiotics are of little use in the treatment of the common cold and viral infections in general. To be more clear, antibiotics are prescribed daily by doctors for everything from sore throats to colds, which are generally “broad spectrum,” which means that eliminate all kinds of bacteria, and beneficial and harmful.
- Add foods rich in probiotics, the fermented
The kimchi, sauerkraut, yogurt, kefir, vegetables fermented and kombucha tea are natural sources rich in probiotic bacteria that improve health.
- Make sure you receive prebiotic fibers
The prebiotic fibers stimulate the development of new probiotic bacteria. Foods rich in dietary prebiotic fiber is chicory root, dandelion, onions, garlic, the Mexican yam, and sunflower. Acacia gum is a highly effective probiotic available as a supplement in health food stores.
- Take probiotic supplements
Although there are countless types of probiotic supplements in stores, what to watch out include: long and Lactobacillus Brevis.
