The gut is so unique to every individual that scientists are only recently becoming more aware of the existence of a complex network of nerves that line our stomach and gut and is referred to as the second brain. Bacteria are so crucial to maintaining healthy gut functions that evidence exists of an animal’s altered biological state when exposed to bacteria-free environments.
A diverse number of bacteria colonize the gastrointestinal tract including the mouth, stomach, and intestines. Mostly contained in the intestines, bacteria provide an arsenal of tools for the gut to interact with. Depending on the type of bacteria available, some bacteria may serve as an ally in combating pathogens from entering into the human body while other species may be the perfect weapon of choice to make you fat. Recent research has implicated the use of antibiotics with the obesity epidemic that has become such a problem in the West. Even obesity has been linked to changes in our gut ecosystem, resulting from an intake of inflammatory omega 6s and not enough anti-inflammatory omega 3s.
Bad bugs produce toxins called lipopolysacchardies (LPS) that trigger inflammation, insulin resistance or pre-diabetes and therefore, promote weight gain.
Lack of sleep and chronic stress also contribute to gut imbalance, In fact, your gut flora listens to and becomes influenced by your thoughts and feelings. So be sure to get 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep and remember to practice your favorite stress reduction activities daily. The killing of gut bacteria by antibiotics has now been linked to type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and obesity … and trying to replace the hundreds of strains we are meant to have by a few from a probiotic will not fully repair the damage. In contrast, homeopathy preserves gut bacteria as it treats infections including pre-existing gut dysbiosis – and without producing bacterial resistance. For your gut’s sake, if nothing else, it makes good sense to use homeopathy first and keep antibiotics as a last resort.
With the right homeopathic protocols, even chronic sufferers can be restored to health, balance, and well-being. Today’s medicine needs alternatives to antibiotic treatment and, more than ever, Homeopathy is an integrative model of medicine that brings together both the emotional & physical characteristics of an individual with a variety of natural therapeutic interventions.Homoeopathy focuses on the individual than the cause of the suffering.Treatment given is not just for the obesity causing gut bacteria but also considers the factors that led to the cause as it plays an important role in prescribing.
