3 Common Health Issues You Had No Idea Were Gut-Related

When Hippocrates famously said, “All disease begins in the gut,” he likely had no idea how right he was.

For example, could he have known that the gut contains 10 times more bacteria responsible for regulating your health than the rest of the body? 

Or that the bacterial transfer that occurs at birth affects the diversity of your microbiome (collection of gastro-intestinal bacteria in the digestive tract) for life?

Is it possible that he knew the root cause of bacteria destruction in the gut flora also weakens the gut barrier and leads to leaky gut, diverticulitis, and other disorders?

Maybe not. But he was on the right track.

How to Tell Your Gut Isn’t Healthy

The human race has been listening to the gut for as long as we’ve had axioms — what do you do when your belly rumbles?

You eat.

Here’s How to Purify Your Air with Nature — Love, NASA

We know the air outside is polluted. And pollution is…

Micro-contaminants in the air that change the environment around it.

The outside air has pollutants from vehicle exhaust, landfills, pesticides running into water sources, factory smoke, etc. But the indoor air isn’t any safer.

In fact, studies done on the quality of most of our indoor air show that it’s stale, rarely refreshed, and full of every pollutant we bring into the house with us. And since Westerners spend the vast majority of their time indoors, up to 90% in some places, it’s a serious problem that should be factored into the discussion about how pollution affects our health.
