Not All Bugs Are Bad- Especially the ones in your gut

There are many things you can do to help keep your billions of beneficial bugs to keep your gut Microbiome healthy and surprise surprise, it’s more than just food that can help!

Bread: Whole grains promote the growth of immune strengthening bacteria in your gut called Lactobacillus. Encorn from Young Living is a non-GMO flour that is not modified like today’s wheat bread is.  You may want to consider Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Flour.

Fiber: Of course is important to your whole system including your gut. The general goal is at least 20 grams of fiber from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Probiotics:  Probiotics such as yogurt, pickles, sauerkraut and other fermented foods nourishes the gut and it helps fight age-related chronic inflammation. (Be sure the food is organic and not processed. An ultra-pasteurized yogurt would not help). Some people don’t like yogurt, pickles, and sauerkraut. In that case, I would suggest Young Living’s Probiotics that comes in a gel capsule.

Here’s one that might surprise you:

Cardio: 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic type exercise 3 times weekly for 6 weeks may improve overall gut health by helping reduce inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity.

Krill Oil: Krill oil can help support a healthy gut.

Things to avoid:

Antibiotics: The use of antibiotics can wreak havoc on your good gut microbiome for years after you have taken them. Don’t use these drugs indiscriminately. I’d say as a very last resort over other natural remedy’s.

Chlorine: Watch out for that tap water! Most cities use chlorinated water. Here’s the thing, your skin can also absorb chlorinated water in the shower or bath also. Consider installing a water and shower filters that are designed to remove the chlorine.

Salt: Too much sodium can reduce what is called lactic-acid bacteria in your gut, increasing the risk of autoimmune diseases such as MS. Eat things that have potassium to balance out the sodium and consider switching table salt to Himalayan salt which has some essential minerals that your common iodine salt does not.

Alcohol:  Everything in moderation. Try to eat on a full stomach. Drinking alcohol can damage the mucosal lining of your GI tract and disrupt the digestion of nutrients. Alcohol also interferes with stomach acid production, increasing the number of harmful bacteria that can survive the journey to your gut.
