What is the best way to stay healthy this Fall and Winter?
Learn about the importance of nurturing your gut flora, by reading this critical information below.
What is gut flora?
It is basically the bacteria and microbes that live in your digestive track. 80 percent of your immunity, good or bad, will determine the overall state of your health.
Yes, that’s 80 percent! How can we keep ourselves healthy during the seasons that are upon us in the upcoming months? Through the understanding and maintenance of keeping the appropriate ratio of gut flora. What is the appropriate ratio of gut flora?
85 percent of the flora in your gut should be good flora consisting of the most well-known species, including Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Saccharomyces boulardii, Escherichia coli, Candida, Helicobacter Pylori and Streptomyces.
15 percent of the flora in your gut should be bad flora. If you have this ratio, then bravo to YOU because you will be able to: smile more than the average person, combat pathogens, encourage proper immune function, digest optimally, synthesize important vitamins and minerals, and much more… including tasks we are not yet aware of!
Most Americans today have this ratio almost completely flip-flopped, meaning they have 15 percent good flora and 85 percent bad bacteria!
YIKES, why does this happen? Well if we eat too many processed foods, drink a lot of alcohol, take more than our share of antibiotics, eat meat that is treated with abuse, and have poor ways in dealing with stress, then our good bacteria will be diminished.
I am sorry if this is happening to you, however, here is how I can help!
1) Get a series of colonics. We need to pull out the toxicity that has given rise from all of the excess bad bacteria, plus we need to pull the bad bacteria out as soon as possible.
2) Begin taking probiotics and prebiotics.
- Live active cultured yogurt (including delicious coconut yogurt!)
- Raw Sauerkraut
Prebiotic food sources include:
- Chicory root
- Dandelion greens
- Maple syrup
And these are ways to stay in optimal health this Fall and Winter! resources: Dr Mercola, MD and Rachel Marynowski, ND
