The relationship between the microbes in our gut, brain, and mouth offer insight into blood sugar and a vast array of other symptoms, all potentially triggered by bleeding gums!
Provided the correct resources and environments, our bodies are masterful and capable of protecting us, unless we continue to stimulate the bad bugs, making them stronger. By aiding our bodies in performing a task that it has been perfecting for thousands of years, neutralizing and digesting bad bugs, we can keep our internal microbiome happy and thriving so that we can enjoy Blissfully Happy (Beatific) Wellness.
When our bodies are improperly hydrated, there is not an adequate amount of free moisture to flush out every microbial self-appointed czar that infiltrates our open borders (i.e. mouth, eyes, nose, and skin membranes) and to maintain the lubrication of all of our systems. This allows that czar-want-to-be to wreak havoc and effectively disrupt our internal systems very quickly.
Symptoms are the body’s way of communicating an issue. You’re not broken and your body does not hate you. It is simply trying to talk to you, so start listening. And the sooner we listen, the easier the issues may be to resolve.
Since our gut, or more specifically our small intestine, is the window to the rest of our internal ecosystem and is where a large part of the microbes that call us home live, we know that disturbances in the small intestine can cause a domino effect throughout our bodies.
Our internal ecosystem is 90% microbial, so it shouldn’t surprise any of us that when that 90% is not running on all of its 15 to 724 trillion cylinders, as the human hosts, we feel it. To help keep that internal (yet foreign) ecosystem happy and thriving: Take Probiotics. But not just any probiotics. Taking transientContinue reading “Probiotics”
Acids were likely mentioned in high school science, and unless you took your education that route, is likely only discussed in regards to your water, the rain, or your body. In all of these scenarios, acidic is bad, except for when we’re discussing our stomach. Acid effectively breaks down the proteins and other materials thatContinue reading “Stomach acid”
