Get the freedom to live a life without limitations
You need a healthy mind and body to take advantage of this freedom
To achieve improved health we need to focus on what makes you unique – your microbiome
Recent scientific discoveries have uncovered a fascinating ecosystem within each of us called the microbiome. The microbiome is now understood to be at the core of overall health.
This complex network of bacteria, fungi, and microflora reside primarily in the gut and impact the health of virtually every system in the human body. The microbiome accounts for 90% of the cells that create YOU. These cells can work for you or against you.
Science has shown that your gut health hugely impacts the way our brain and body functions and therefore affects our overall health. Did you know there is a major link between your gut and your brain? Our whole mental and emotional well-being is determined by our microbiome. The gut also controls around 80% of our immune system and even affects our sleep, metabolism, weight, fertility levels and hormones.
Our lifestyle and the foods we eat are the biggest factors – and the most obvious. Other things also can play a part including stress, environmental toxins, nutrient-stripped foods, pesticides, hormones in our food, medication and antibiotics. Whilst they can be life saving, it can take up to 6 months for your gut to get over a course of antibiotics.Watch the clip to see how the microbiome impacts every aspect of our health.
For some people, the lining of the gut wall can become damaged – this lining, called the intestinal mucosal barrier, consists of a single layer of cells. The junctions between these cells are usually kept very tight. However, when bad bacteria attacks this gut lining, it can cause what doctors call “intestinal permeability” and what we know as Leaky Gut Syndrome. Undesirable bacteria called endotoxins and sometimes even undigested foods can pass through these leaky junctions into your bloodstream. Your immune system then recognizes these foreign molecules and tried to defend itself by attacking them causing systemic and chronic inflammation.
You may need to re-balance your microbiome if you struggle with:
Imbalances in the microbiome have also been implicated in countless health issues, including chronic conditions, autoimmune diseases, MS, obesity, diabetes, asthma, arthritis and rheumatism.
The good news is that the microbiome can be changed and you can repair leaky gut syndrome. There is a way to restore your health and even improve it. Elite Health IS possible, a balanced and properly fed microbiome is the key to achieving it.
