Did you know that a single dose of an Antibiotic reduces your gut Microbiome by 70 – 90%?
Did you also know that the Microbiome is the Master of your hormones?
This is huge. The Microbiome is now considered as an organism. It is responsible for the secretion of almost every hormone your body needs to run optimally. It inhibits and enhances production of hormones.
As such, looking at your other endocrine glands in isolation: your thyroid and your adrenal
glands, etc. and reproductive organs, without addressing the gut/ microbiome, you really don’t get very far. Once your gut is unhealthy, it affects how hormones are secreted and it favours things like norepinephrine, adrenalin and cortisol and a low level of dopamine and serotonin. This creates the ‘Stress’ cocktail that will cause anxiety, depression, brain fog, leaky gut, IBS and a host of other issues that follow.
To break out of this cycle, there is a step by step process that looks at you individually, your situation, your food, your circumstances, your digestion, your skin, your genetic predisposition, etc. It’s no wonder people are confused by all the ‘conflicting’ messages that are out there when all you want is to get rid of the daily reminders of feeling awful for so long that you almost got used to it until your gut cruelly reminds you, or the outbreak of psoriasis, or the depression dip, or the joint pains, or the mood swings, or the weight gain although you have kept your strict diet. You have food intolerances that quite frankly are out of control.
Isn’t it ironic that 2400 years ago, ‘we’ (the royal we) already knew that ‘all disease starts in the gut’? If you are affected by any of the above, or you have questions, please get in touch.
