Wednesday, 11/14/12 - You're only as good as your gut...

Another major player in my daily health regimen....

Leaky Gut Syndrome, is a gastrointestinal disorder in which the intestinal lining of the digestive tract becomes more permeable, or “leakier,” than normal, due to repeated irritation. The small intestine is designed to allow tiny particles of digested nutrients to pass through its wall and into the bloodstream. These are then distributed for use throughout the body. But due to a variety of causes, the intestinal wall can become more permeable and allow larger, less digested particles and toxins to pass through—causing Leaky Gut Syndrome. The body then recognizes these particles as foreign “invaders,” and the immune system attempts to fight them off—which can set the stage for various autoimmune disorders. So, basically, anything that was getting into my bloodstream, my immune system thought it was a foreign substance therefore making me have an allergic reaction to it.

You've heard it before: Death begins in the colon. Your gut is home to millions and millions of bacteria, good and bad. Keep it healthy and you'll create a balanced environment that will boost your immune system and help you fight off diseases.

Approximately 30 feet long, it is that tube that runs from your mouth to your anus and plays a vital role to the health of your mind, body, and spirit, said Dr. Teresa Bitanga Valeros, NMD and PhD.

Your colon has been working hard to keep you in good condition since you were born. When you eat meat, for instance, it takes three days for your stomach to digest. That's three days of meat sitting in your gut, fermenting and rotting away.

This is not about turning vegan, said Valeros. This is about keeping your gut healthy. It's not a detox diet but rather a remedy, a way to "reverse from illness to wellness," she said.

When you're healthy, that means the bacteria population in your stomach is balanced - there are more "good" than "bad" bacteria. If you easily gut contract diseases, then balance must be restored.

"Bacillus coagulans is one of the most exciting strains of "good" bacteria to come around because it can withstand extreme temperatures and the harsh acid in the stomach."

- Dr. Michael Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer of the Cleveland Clinic
