This inflammation is really sending out a distress signal to your immune system to your immune cells to take action to address either an infection or an injury or even some kind of exposure also the processes of inflammation can include increased production of antibodies and sidled kinds coming from our immune cells also inflammation can lead to increase blood flow to the damaged area and inflammation can even increase the production of stress related hormones. The word inflammation itself is derived from latin root word meaning to set on fire and oftentimes some of the symptoms that we might experience a burning sensation and pain. Swelling aching congestion. If we're talking about in relationship to a viral exposure or a bacterial infection where we start to have inflammation showing up in the form of congestion. But in many cases you may not even be aware that the inflammation is taking place until a significant part of our health gets incinerated i had a lot of inflammatory activities happening behind the scenes especially when we get into the state of chronic low grade inflammation that so epidemic today in our society.

Why We’re Angry at Our Skin: A Talk About Acne and Skincare
"We were recording. We were laughing about a certain brands that was like really popular when we were in high school. Yes and i remember everyone that had bad skin and even i think used this brand for a long time. It was like the first three step system that everyone was using. And it's just so crazy. 'cause i remember it burning my face and being like it's working just all of these toxic products that are used for so long that i felt like the more it bothered me or the more it hurt the mort worked. Yes burning. it's working. Yes that exact thing. Except now i feel like. I'm thankful that we're kind of transitioning to something better. But i wonder where do you think that comes from like that whole belief with acne and skin that like it needs to be damaging to your like you need to completely reset your gut or you need to use products that are almost so toxic and chemically that. It can't be done naturally. I think that the has that same sensation. Where if it's burning as working and if it's not burning it's not working. It's a very specific. Feeling that people are looking for and i can only speak from my experience but i feel like my experience is i feel like my. A lot of people shared my experience in this. You're angry at your skin. you're angry at your acne. You're frustrated so you have this like angry energy at your skin where you want to burn it off almost like you're punishing your acne a little bit I remember seeking the burn and it's twofold because a lot of things that do you burn. Tingle are ex polian alpha hydroxy acids and those do temporarily have a drying effect and can provide temporary benefits. So you learned to chase that. That's like the cycle that you're constantly on so i think that's where it's rooted in but also like i remember. Even when i was clear for a while i would still be seeking a burn. And for me i remember distinctly just being angry at my skin like almost wanting to punish it and people do the same thing with scrub. They'll just get mean when. I'm coaching people at the clinic on how to use a scrub. I have to show them like on their hand with the right pressure is Because people will just go nuts and
What Kind of Gut Microbiome Are You Creating?
"You sit down to each you can think about what kind of microbiome a my building today. Because the foods that we provide us with calories and nutrients we absorb those in our small predominantly but they the foods which to consume define the residue that gets delivered to our gut microbes. So if you're eating a standard western diet which is full of red meat processed animal fash plants deficient processed food. Okay the bacteria that live in. Your large are getting a steady supply of animal protein. Hardly any fiber and bile. They're getting bio which is produced to help to digest the multiply that fast and that feeds certain types of gut bacteria causing them to flourish and become predominance an those are the bacteria the process that stuff and generate things secondary bile acids and ammonia hydrogen sulfide gas which is pro inflammatory and hardly any short chain fatty acids and that gives a microbial environment which creates barrier dysfunction inflammation. Dna damage gino toxicity. Short a gut microbial environment that is conducive to inflammation and carcinogenesis the beginnings of cancer cells in our body. How about we make a different decision. So instead of having a big mac meal ran the bean burger and the sweet potato and the leafy greens the whole grains vegetables the fruits. So now what does our microbiome receive on this healthy whole food plant based diet well tons of fiber know very little animal protein less protein in general because we absorb what we need in this less leftover hardly any by lassus because our whole foods. Bumpy start is naturally lower in fat and lower in saturated fat. So now we're choosing to build a different kind of got microbiome.

I almost randomly an gut instinct kind of way picked a twenty five percent drop in consumer spending so across goods services and experiences and Started taking that out to the world. And i had sources saying to me. You know this is too ridiculous to even contemplate too absurd about too much. People said well you know. We can't even talk about that extreme drop in consumption. You know you thought. Experiment is is farther than i want to. Then i'm comfortable going with you and then of course it happened. Why was nearly finished.

I like integrating them. I just don't feel well when i eat them and i totally get it. You know coming from that background of not being healthy myself. I didn't even realize that. I had issues until james really was the one who brought it to my attention in. He brought up the fact that i would constantly say i have a stomach. I didn't even realize it at the time. I think it was just kind of natural after eating. I would always have stahnke pre plant based even when we first started plant based and so on my own kind of ideas type journey as while i've understood which foods are triggers for that and working with patients and working with clients over the last check eater or more.

What Attitudes Drive Consumer Behaviors With Dr. Nick Hobson
"So what a marketers need to know about the internal states of the mind. How should we think about what is happening inside. Someone's head that ends up leading to that outcome that we're trying to drive. So if you ignore the internal processes those internal states it's more or less a guessing game you can observe and see a behavior and then try and deduce y that behavioral kurd and then sort of up nizing. Think about what you need to do to get to that ideal outcome that ideal state. But if you don't know what actually drove. It motivated the individual to that action to that behavior. It's fifty fifty. It's a guessing game at that point. So you need to understand. Basically the attitudes the feelings and beliefs the emotions of the hot part of our cognition which is automatic and then the belief is irrational or the condon's elements of our psychology. How those two things work together to result in some sort of ideal outcome and then once you know what those are then. You can intervene at the right points. Then you can dial one emotion up turn another emotion down so that it gets you where you want to the enemy speak in such generic terms because it really depends on what you're doing you're working with who your end user is etc either they might feel generic to you but from somebody that doesn't work in the field. That's interesting to me. And what. I'm hearing as their sort of this irrational portion of the brain. That probably is doing a lot of the feeling and interpreting of signals and then there is the rational part of the brain which is taking all the data and figuring out what it should be doing. I'm sure i'm not using the right psychological terms but the lizard brain and the whatever the other non lizard brain is plus academic terms are junketing and loaner foolish it anyway so i like bringing it back down to realize you're exactly right. It's sort of this rough dysfunctional system. One system to for all the dating katamon fans and thinking fast and slow fans out there who are listening. And yeah it's a very helpful. Heuristic of how we think about humans human behavior including in consumer dave contexts where we make a behavior or we engage in a behavior. I should say. And that's probably in most instances driven by this very quick automatic emotion sort of gut level. Feeling impulse symbols instinct unconscious quick reflexive so most importantly it's outside of conscious

Tell the listener. How what. They should understand about anxiety. Okay the alarm goes off. Now what would i do. So the way i would describe it as this way what we do with things i in our culture is this. Imagine you're in your kitchen in your smoke. Alarms going on and you bring over a therapist you bring over a friend that you troughs or some loud mouth in law and or some pastor some. I don't know we got eighteen associate pastors that every church now You bring somebody over and you guys are up on a ladder trying to figure out how to get the batteries. Shut the alarm.

Intermittent Fasting is Kind of Complicated
"Time restricted eating. Tell me your definition of that. The concept of it is that that we are that the digestive system is more than just a food tube and that one of the key factors in health is digesting your food and getting your nutrients into cells And that that happens with with the chemical primarily called insulin and that insulin is one of the key drivers that help helps us use the nutrition from our gut so new. Insulin is very important. Obviously if you know anybody who has diabetes especially type one diabetes type one diabetes. Is the kind that children get. They don't have insulin and they can get very sick for the more common type of diabetes which has type two. You actually have too much. Insulin and your body starts to get insulin resistance. And so one theory that has been popularized. Is that not only do. We need the right nutrition but by timing it with insulin and giving our body arrest from food and arrest from nutrition from the insulin. We actually can boost health and boots boost vitality. The different take on it than thunder has when we talked to thunder. It's primarily more about kind of i think weight management. You know losing some weight or maintaining your weight. So that's that's fascinating that actually impact your health as well so is time restricted eating something that everybody should be doing. No idea behind time restricted eating From my from my point of view is primarily ran insulin and storing and getting into that storage mode and when we eat foods that are high in carbohydrates we tend to secrete insulin. And then we go into the storage mode for nutrition and that theory behind that Back in high school biology. We learned that the brain was the that helped drive the body. We had this nutrition tube that help us digest food and that we had fat and fat was a storage vehicle.
The Hard Truth of the Marijuana Industry
"Two thousand eighteen. Almost seven hundred thousand people in the us were charged for possession of marijuana. Black people were almost four times more likely to be arrested for possession than white people despite the fact that both groups use marijuana at similar rates for a long time because of the so-called war on drugs of the eighties and nineties. These disparities were the primary story of marijuana people of color in the us. But now that story is. Changing as marijuana is legalized in more states. Across the us and growing into a multibillion dollar industry black entrepreneurs are trying to reclaim the plant that crushed their communities for so long black entrepreneurs like gmo modern. I saw this as an opportunity to say if i watch people my community get arrested for this.

And so The reality is that we've discovered that your gut microbes are a critical player in this conversation. that the food that you eat is not just simply calories in that it's the food that you e coming into contact with your specific gut microbiome and how that's going to affect the food that you eat. So they've done studies where they take humans. Okay. Who are one will be obese and one will be skinny. And may actually do a poop transplant. Into mice. And so these mice one will receive the microbiome of human who's obese and one will receive microbiome of human that a skinny. Again like human microbiome going into a mouse, and then they feed these mice literally the exact same number of calories. And what ends up happening is that the mouse that received the obese microbiome becomes obese. And the one that received the skinny microbiome becomes skinny even though they're literally eating the number calories. So it's not just carries in carries out your guy it's like I think of it like swimming in the ocean. Swim in the current is behind you pushing you. Like another strong swimmer, but I can look like Michael Phelps out there. a human torpedo just like careening through the ocean yet. But when the oceans pushed against me and the current strong. Even if I am strong swimmer, I can get nowhere. I can hack away at ocean. And do my best and still be stuck. And that's what you see happening when you find people who. Can eat whatever they want and get away with it and still be skinny like down. Or on the flip side. The person who literally does everything right follows all the rules and can't lose the weight. Even though they're doing everything they've been told to do. and. So this is the role that the gut microbiome place and the just real quick on topic of hormones in similar fashion to gut microbes. Are, deeply intertwined with our hormones. And you know estrogen levels are affected by Gut microbes on androgen levels which are male sex hormones are affected by Gut microbes, and this is why in women you will find that damage to the Gut microbiome has been associated with endometriosis. POLYCYSTIC Ovary Syndrome And Mutual Hyperplasia. Multiple different types of cancer that are estrogen sensitive. So like for example, endometrial cancer ovarian cancer breast cancer. And in guys. So if you have, you know like for these guys are listening or for the women who have a guy in their life and you WanNa get guys attention. This is the most important thing about the with right now let's not. Your Gut microbes affect male sex hormones. And there's no surprise then that your gut microbes and damaged, your guy has been associated with the development of erectile dysfunction. You can tell a guy that he's GonNa get heart disease that he's going to get cancer that he's going to get diabetes he's not going to change any. But if he tell him the solution to rectal dysfunction, all of a sudden these super-motivated, he'll do whatever you tell the Pirka what? So. That's One of the reasons why that game changers scene was so popular, right? It's like. plant-based. Exactly yeah. Yeah but blood flow rate there is important to you, right. And what was important that's affected by as infected affected by. Again, going back to these metabolites, these things that are gut microbes produce would foes is affected by metabolites of these got microbes and at the same time also testosterone levels in being the fact that there's this one back through sentiment's been shown to be specifically associated with male sex hormones. How many of these microbes do you know the names of? What it would be really like. So there are they're wild names they sound like magic tricks. There's I mean there's literally they. They believe that there's up to potentially thirty six thousand different types of microbes that we have. And there's Certain microbes that are sort of like we all share call, those the keystone species species like basically the foundation. But then there's the parts that make us unique and so there's still a lot that we're learning I. Mean we're just starting to crack the surface of understanding what each one of these microbes does and how we can affect A. Sequoia. The whole other world down there. Okay. Well, that was a good fire round. Belong long-form fire. Relief. It was fire fibers fire, right? Secret. Code the Secret Code. So, let's take it back to where despite. Within. The actually starts and it starts from before were even borne. So can you maybe go through a lifetime of a typical person and the main culprits that we should be avoiding that could lead to despite within the church you know from the very beginning of our lives and also animal products do for the micro biota with. Okay. So. Are The reason why we say that despite a starts before you're even born is bad i. am of the belief that it's not just what mom eastern pregnancy, but it's even what mommies before pregnancy. Matters because ultimately. On Well and let me let me fully pack because there is there are some things to say about all this that I think are important for everyone understand sometimes people get a little bit upset when I talk about this stuff. just because they're like, oh my gosh, was need for my kid and we all get very sensitive. If it means the we know we have in some way affected our kid. But to volume pack this you know basically what happens is when a child is born, the child's passes through the birth canal MOMS Vagina and what's fascinating to. Is that the vagina has its own microbiome, which is separate from the Gut microbiome but we in pregnancy weight in pregnancy in the third trimester, the original microbiome actually starts to change and resemble mom's gut like revile is so weird to think about. Time in life that this happens the only time in life. That the vaginal microbiome stops being badgered like violent stars resembling the GUT microbiome. Is At this time late in the third trimester of pregnancy. And that's because the child passes through the birth control birth canal. and. It is the first like exposure of this child. To these microbes And so it's like Mom's gift to this child. And, of course, if we don't pass through the birth canal be opportunity for that exposure is you know potentially lost but I want people to.

"Fifty generations I mean. Humans take us back right now all the way to the pyramids. Happening on a daily basis so they're evolving universe. and talking. And we've already spawned a new generation of microbes in the time of you and I have been hanging out, they're busy. They're busy. They're dribbles. dribbles on. Steroids end. Or something. ANIME but they're they're they're constantly changing. The, they're constantly changed. This is part of what we're able to tap into where we want to enhance in optimized gut Wants to adapt our gut is that they constantly change and so but the point is they have the ability to adapt to whatever food we throw it. And so we learned to rely on them. For. Digestion. Some when it comes to processing. Fiber in. Complex. Carbohydrates. We personally don't have the enzymes to do it. Our Gut microbes do. And we need to be able to do it for us. and. If they struggle if they don't do it properly. That's wind blowing in gaffes discomfort. Distress. Those symptoms that people feel like they have food sensitivity in some people even refer to it as inflammation. That's what you experience. What's not inflammation there's not any evidence to suggest that it is information instead what it is. Is it's sloppy digestion. Because, we're gut microbes were not prepared for what you just sent down there. So this is the reason why we really we rely on them but at the same time we need to respect. Their space in with a means of this that we need to properly feed them so that they can stay strong and be capable of supporting us with whatever we want to do. Yeah and that also plays into cravings correct and they are actually telling us what we should be craving. That brings me to the next election, which is the GUT brain connection. So maybe we can get into that now. Yes They do they. They have a say in what we prefer and what they're trying to do is they're trying to enhance their own personal survival. So I'm here talking about these microbes that love fiber but guess what there's microbes though sugar. Is microbes a fat and they will try to work on you. To get you eat those things and if you're used to eating those things, then you're more likely to crave those things. But the good news. But it's kind of cool is that our taste buds can change. In that's because microbiome can change. and. So for me personally when I changed my diet, like I used to crave eating like rabbi stakes. Now look everybody steak unlike discussing. Really have no interest no interest at all I have no taste for it. And On the flip side I would have asked me ten years ago. Can you imagine yourself like craving salad back? What are you talking about? What is But now it's like that's what I want like from myself I want to sell it. And so So it's fascinating to consider the power that they have over our food choices. We talked about mood already but even our memory, our brain function the development of other neurologic conditions like Alzheimer's Parkinson's those things have all been connected back to our gut microbes and so the point is that once again we're proving. Is. When you want optimal bodily function, you know the Breen seems so far removed from the guy. But if you want optimal brain health. You start down there you start with the gut. Yet so fascinating and I love that you know it is your second brain. That's what people say all the time. I feel it in my gut and you literally do you can actually feel different things and all comes from the Gut because it is your second brain. and. It goes both ways you can have gut feelings and they can be a positive thing, but you can also express your stress. In your gut to is very commonplace for people when they when they get emotional when they get stressed that they start to have their digestive system get upset and there's actually an explanation for why that happens. So our breen releases this hormone called C. R. h. atropine releasing hormone. In CR age, it comes from the brain travels through the blood gets to the guy and actually induces despite. In so damages the GUT microbiome. So then you damage the gut microbiome. And As a result. You become less capable of producing all of these different neurotransmitters, short chain, fatty acids in the things that you need. To protect your mood. When you damaged the guy you end up affecting your mood in creating more stress creating more anxiety. which leads to more CR each release. It gets make officers cycle right and so you got to break out of the cycle and one of the ways that you can break free from that cycle or create a cycle that's to your benefit. is to actually feed the gut ends reverse the spouses. The power in the plants. And the fiber, of course. And and you can go even deeper talk about genetics the gut in gene expression. So. That's so wild this whole concept. The so when it comes to genetics. Okay it's weird even for me to acknowledge this and on a doctor, this is what I do but. It's very strange to consider that like if you look at the entirety of our genetic code. Less than one percent of our genetic code is actually human. More. Than Ninety nine percent of genetic code comes from these microbes. In Beyond that, they have the ability to control our genetic code. So, our code is not just like this like we honestly thought Julia when we when the When we first cracked human genetic code in the year two thousand. We honestly thought that we would have the roadmap map for human health that we would understand all of that. We would be able to predict who would have cancer heart disease but explain it all. And it hasn't worked hasn't worked in the reason why is because genetic code is not a blueprint Your genetic code is instead something that is malleable. It can be altered. It's like switches. So, it's like the wiring you know the electrical wiring in a house where you can flip the switch and you can turn on a light..

"Virus not too much too much is how people end up basically having what's called a d.. Which is acute respiratory distress syndrome. That's what's getting people into trouble with this virus where they end up in the ICU on a breathing tube, you don't want that s too much immune system. But you don't want to little either because when it's too little than the virus is not being cleared up so we need needed just right and that's that's the way that it works is these gut microbes. Help, they're basically support for your immune system. So that I can work just right. He had the book you explain before we get into the next connection there. In the book you explain as a bit of a House Party and there's a fence let the microbes all within the intestinal wall. Sorry. Maybe you can expand on that because I go. It's a house party in the pre Cova Times where there were no restrictions in you could just have a great time and. Basically what it is. They're so close that although they are technically separated by this barrier, which is called the layer and again this epithelial air, it's just a single So thin the can't see what the make it i. By. even though they're technically separated from one another. Is the energies are being shared with one another and so when you when you have a healthy gut? That is the best way to have a healthy immune system and when you're got is unhealthy. Unfortunately, that's when we find that the immune system is unhealthiest well, and one of the things that I did in research in my book Julia is I looked at all these different auto-immune. Diseases. and. So I'm talking about like lupus rheumatoid arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis Crohn's will sort of quite whatnot. And I asked the question. Have they looked at the GUT microbiome? In the setting of these people who have these autoimmune diseases. And I found a you can see in chapter one of my book there's a table with like. Literally. Thirty different diseases. Every single time they stuck a the Gut microbiome in the setting of autoimmune disease. The finding was damaged to the GUT microbiome. It's to the point Julia that I'm convinced that it is required unconvinced that it is required. To damage the GUT microbiome in order to develop an autoimmune disease. And so that's how powerful disconnection is. If you protect the guy, you are protecting the immune system. Yeah. Amazing. Okay onto the next one and. I'm not very good at this fire round on me. this great though. The Gut and mood depression and anxiety connection. So. Are. Glued to this before that, our God is connected to our brain and it's called the brain gut connection They are constantly talking to each other. We're talking to each other literally right this moment. And part of the ways that they communicate our through nerves. So there's this one big nerve called the biggest nerve information being shared both ways. But also got can produce. Transmitters neurotransmitters to be honest with you. So for example, ninety percent of Serotonin. which is the happy hormone It really contributes to our mood to our energy levels to our focus. If you give someone a drug for depression you are affecting serotonin levels. and. Ninety percent of Serotonin is produced in the GOP. And it comes as no surprise that they have discovered a people who suffer with anxiety depression or other mood disturbances. have alteration or damage to their gut microbiome. In the follow up, is that we have studies that show us that for example, there's a randomized controlled study where they looked at implementing plant based Diet. And they found the in this randomized controlled study like very well controlled not not a population study epidemiology study. This was very controlled. That, when they gave people plant based Diet, there was improvement of their depression source. And so that would suggest that because reading plants. Is Affecting your gut microbiome anytime you eat plants you're affecting your like around, and when you do that, you have the ability to actually alter your mood and improve. Very cool. Okay now gut digestion and bloating. Gwen. Yeah. So we rely on our gut microbes to help us to process and digest our food specifically. Talking about fiber and complex carbohydrates, which are things that you find in plant foods. In the idea of like why this happened. As to do with human evolution. So or perhaps we should call it co evolution because we didn't evolve by ourselves evolved in concert in relationship. With these gut microbes, we did it together. And you know if you think about humans, we started been Africa and we read it we radiated out across the planet. And as we moved, we have found ourselves in all of these different ecosystems like you know you could be in a rainforest or desert or in the Arctic. All these different places that have. Different foliage. and. There are literally three hundred, thousand edible plants out there right now. So many lives are having like. The average American is w fifteen of them but there's literally three hundred thousand plants out there in our world right now. and. So we as humans as we radiated out across the globe, we needed ability to adapt to our environment. But we are not adaptable. For not, we're not very adaptable at all, but our gut microbes are incredibly adaptable. So like literally in twenty four hours. You will spawn. Fifty new generations. Of. Gut microbes..

"And so we want to, we want to support them. We want them to be successful and they are living creatures. They're alive as you and Julia as alive as the listeners a home. And they need to be fed. And they're hungry. And the way that they that we feed them. Is With what we? So whatever we put in our mouth and swallow we're GONNA send. down. The tube. And it will come into contact with these microbes. And certain microbes will eat and certain ones will not. Because, if you didn't give them the right food, they're not going to be fed and they are picky eaters just like us. So So their preferred food is. Is Fiber. And this is the sort of backbone of my argument in my book, which is that fiber is the preferred food of our gut microbes. And we live in a society where we're just not doing it. We're just not eating any fiber. and. We eat the same iceberg lettuce with like one tomato that we sliced four ways we call it a salad dumped blue cheese and throw croutons on top right. and. So. We're just not giving these microbes need and the key. Going back to your statement Julia is the diversity. And the reason why diversity is so critically important is that diversity within the microbiome? Easy measure of This ecosystem just like the Amazon rainforest. Just. Like the great barrier. Reef. And if you look at any ecosystem at any biologist will tell you the key to the ecosystem is biodiversity. You want all the different players to be there, and so for example, just real quick I I don't like snakes. Mosquitoes. Annoy me but. If he wins the Amazon rainforest and you take all the snakes mosquitoes out of the rainforest, you would create a hole in the system that the other animals are not designed to fill. And I would create problems and instability and other animals would die as a result of that. So. The same is true in our gut we want as much bio-diversity as possible. In each one of these microbes. Is. A. Picky eater has its own preferred. Food its own preferred type of fiber, and the way that we get as much diversity within our Mike revile is the eat as much diversity of plants. Within our diet and we do that we are supporting a bio diverse gut microbiome and it becomes this hardy strong resilient ecosystem that is perfectly designed to take on whatever our body needs just to do. And is going to support human house throughout the entirety of the body that includes the immune system and metabolism hormones and mood brain and all those other things. You say it's like a command center and it really does sound like a fun game doesn't it? is because the video is A. Affable. You are not you know you're not cursed with Stumm Gut microbiome that you're stuck with for the rest of your life. You have the ability to mold and shape it and turn it into. The Gut. microbiome of your dreams Debbie it can be like so sleet and wonderful, and you just have to put in the effort and time that's necessary to get it there And that right there. So empowering for people to know that you can change your gut microbiome and you will be able to digest certain things. Eventually I think that is the most empowering part of all of us and. I find it. So fascinating that the gut microbiome trillions of microbes that you feed and then they pupil stuff to either you know. Either help you or hinder you literally what they're doing. You are what your gut microbes poop out. Yes, exit been this is this is this is the key is that if you got and I think we'll talk about this more and more as we go through but. If you took fiber. You're sterile. It just wouldn't do that much because the final which just pass through. Yeah. If, you have gut microbes. But you don't give them fiber. I mean honestly, you're not really getting the benefits from these microbes that you could be getting. Guess what that is the way that we live in North America right now, the average person has gut microbes not feeding that. So you basically have these starving microbes in they're they're they're not empowered helping. And but if you take fiber and you feed gut microbes. Than they will take that fiber and they will transform it in this beautiful powerful way. It's magic carry potter. It's like know it's a beautiful thing and How's IT GONNA probably end up going someplace that I didn't to go stop stop stop aboard. Multi late. I was like, okay. Do I go there? Do I go there? Not Abort Anyway. It's a good thing. It's a good thing. You can insert whatever it is. One of you is a beautiful thing and. It's like magical in in what they do is they produce. These short chain, fatty acids and the protein fatty acids are what truly are making the difference are truly are healing. It's not the fiber itself is short chain fatty acids. From the fiber when your gut microbes consume it, and that's the beautiful thing and the flip side is true to is, as you said Julia. The flip side is also true which is that when you eat unhealthy food. You will feed the unhealthy microbes and they will take that food and they will turn into stuff that could hurt you the bottom line. They can turn it into things like, TMA? Oh, more into. A means or Sulfides, or there's all these different examples of things that either cause cancer or inflammatory associated with Crohn's disease zero supplied are all these different. Conditions Diseases that you just don't want, and unfortunately they come the those things can come when we feed unhealthy microbes so No you have a choice. You can feed the good guys and they can empower you and strengthen you and fortify you. Or. We can feed the bad guys and stay. Can you know basically work work overtime trying to take you down and eventually succeed if you give them enough time Yeah. We'll get into TMA oh, and and what causes disposes and creates more growth those bad guys versus goodguys soon. But before that I think maybe we could do fun little. Fire round. Talk about the gut connection and. So I'll say, the guts and immunity connection fire out kind of basic understanding of what that is and we'll go through just a few of those. How does that sound? Was, rock. Yeah. Okay. I know you like gain. So I feel like this is a bit of a game. Want to. The game that connection game. Okay. So let's start with gut an immunity connection and the importance of a healthy got when it comes to viruses like we are all experiencing right now covert. The got the guy in the immune system are inseperable. Seventy percent of your immune system is right there a literally the single ourselves separates seventy percent of your immune system from thirty nine, trillion gut microbes. So they are completely intertwined. They talk to one another constantly and if you want a healthy immune system. You need healthy gut and we have studies that have demonstrated that you know. For example, we have studied with specifically cove nineteen suggesting that there is alteration or damage to the GUT microbiome in people that get severe covid nineteen. And we also have studies with respiratory viruses that a which are you know similar to the way the covid nineteen behaves. with respiratory viruses where when you feed gut microbes with fiber. They actually will enhance the way that your immune system functions and help you to optimally clear that virus not too much too much is how people end up basically having what's called a d.. Which is acute respiratory distress syndrome..

That's also one eight, hundred, nine, nine, native today we're GONNA start off in San Francisco California. We have Dr Luke John with us, he is a gastroenterologist at the University of California San Francisco and achieve mental off chief medical officer at his Berg San Francisco General Hospital he is Oklahoma Luckily. And our pleasure to have him here for another native America calling Dr John. Welcome. Qatar Good Morning. In good day to you as well and Dr John Gut Health. What does that mean? Yeah. It's a great question and it's a relatively new concept that's been around in medicine just for the last couple of years in the last decade or so. we all know that there are a curia and viruses out in the world but we humans have a unique relationship with them We have something that's called a symbiosis sort of a connection together where we work with each other to help promote each other's health, and so there's a new thing gut microbiome, which is really all of the microbes that reside within our entire, which is a pretty large space in our. Body actually consists of maybe trillions of different types of bacteria, viruses, even fungi, and we know that this connection between those microbes in ourselves plays an important role, not only in digestion breaking down our food but actually, it helps with our immune system can actually impact other organs, but we're learning to you. It's well too. So actually the very unique relationship and It's important that we start understand it and actually promoted. In. So how is it populated? Do we start with them? The number of microbes we have when we're a child today or tell me more about how it is populated Yeah. No great question. So usually, it's populated when we're born. So we usually our initial bacteria is given to us by our mothers So as we pass through the birth canal, that's the first time that our gut is populated with those microbes. Environment, that works posted early on in life breastfeeding as well also contributes to populating the well. Early life experiences early on helped to populate our gut and so it's sort of combination of genetic factors what we inherited mostly from our brother but also then our early environment and what we're exposed to, and then of course, over the course of our life, other things can potentially influence it as well based on what we ingest and our behaviors. In. So win do we know we have a good population going on or are we always? Struggling to get to that initial population we were born with how does it work? Tell me a little more. Yeah no it's usually sort of a sort of a back and forth between the micro itself in our gut you know most of the time they work very well with each other. You know they help break down the food that we ingest actually also helps sort of stimulating our immune system. So the two most common areas where we get exposed to things from the environment is our skin in our gut in both those have a lot of immune cells in them, and so they react to things in our environment ten. So those microbes and the microbiome in our gut health with sort of stimulating that immune response. Usually early on in our life as it starts getting populated starts growing it starts. Remembering things and starting try to sort of provide protection for us. Potentially, where there might be problems later on in life is you know our diets inactivity can do it certain medications like antibiotics can Kinda kill microbial in the gut. So there's certain things exponentially happened that can actually cause when now learning some diseases. So potentially GI diseases. Diseases. Gi Track. And while we are mentioning Infants I was surprised to see advertisements for some formulas with probiotics in any thoughts on that. Yeah. So we know that at least in adults, probiotics can be helpful in children. It's not well studied or well known We do know that probably the best way to SORTA populate the microbiome for Young Infants is actually through breastfeeding that only not only helps increase immunity for the children, but also helps populate their gut with microbes as well to So I, think it's something that people should probably talk about their pediatrician but I think in adults, probiotics can be potentially helpful if they have some alterations in their microbiome. In, jumped ahead what is appropriate? How does it help us? Let's go into that. Yeah. Great Question. So as I said, there are trillions of types of microbes that are in our God, but we know that some of those microbes actually more beneficial than others and so probiotics really try to take what we are calling in quotes, good bacteria and tries to put it in a small capsule, a small hill that when you ingest it sort of helps what we call, repopulate or search putting good bacteria back into the gut There's the metro probiotics in our environment. So yogurts especially, Greek yogurt is a great probiotic which I usually recommend but also there's over the counter pills or even prescription probiotics that one can take to help sort of hockey late, the gut as well. All right and you know what? Correction it's Luke John Day. So Dr Day. Thank you for being here with us and when we are thinking about you know our bodies and of course, in our youth a lot of times we feel invincible we can eat anything. We can stay up and shake it off the next day But.

And that that seems glad you know it's just like it's my intestines but like maybe there is a brain my gut. . But at the same time, , it's kind of farfetched and wacky. . So I decided to take this theory to the park and see what live friends <unk>. . There's a break. . In your stomach. . Know. . What what? ? Who had your brains in your head? ? I, , think your brain makes. . Everything you feel possible. . There could be a brain because there wouldn't be space or else you'd have like a big lump on ever side. .

You, , know I think hires onto something. . It is like really complicated and I did a little bit of research. . Apparently, , there are little creatures in our guts and they're called microbes are remember reading this one factoid from science center saying that all the microbes in your body where about a kilogram. . That's crazy. . These microbes, , their apparently lake all over our body in there like inside US everywhere therefore supposed to trust our gots. . Then does that mean that we have to trust all of the little microbes do the microbes have grain? ? Are they sent? ? And as was doing this research I saw the scientist called Dr Embry at Hyde. . For My pc I studied the microbiome. . So I decided to call her up what is microbiome so you can't see it because well, , for one it's inside of you but for to they're invisible to the naked eye. . So as all of the microbes that live in an on your body so that includes bacteria, , viruses, , fungi, , some parasites, , and it's not just the microbes, , but it's the things that they do in your. . Body. . So the micro Byron or God is responsible for a lot of processes in our body. . But I wanted to know do the collection of microbes form like a brain. . Your Gut is full of neurons which are the same exact cells that are in your brain, , and there's this amazing nerve called the Vegas nerve which connects your brain to your digestive tract and your brain can send signals directly to your gut. . And your gut consensus directly back to your brain through this nerve, , and they're always communicating talking to each other. . And because of that, , a lot of people like to call this system, , the second brain in your gut but I think is probably more appropriate just to call it an extension of your nervous system. . Does our gut brain have like a conscience? ? Sent you. . We don't fully know the answer to that. . Yet microbes live in your gut and they help affects this communication between your gut in your brain and people are wondering if maybe microbes have a mind of their own and if they do then maybe you know you could extrapolate a little bit and say, , well, , if the microbes have a mind of their own and they're affecting how my is talking to the brain, , then maybe that could be the conscious aspect of it but we just don't know yet. . What do you think the brain and the gut are communicating is the Gulping like We're able to process that pizza that you. .

Well, , that's definitely part of it but I, , think it's just a little part of it. . So have you ever I don't know you seem like a very good podcast or interviewer but maybe if you've ever gotten nervous before giving an interview or having to talk to somebody and maybe felt butterflies in your stomach, , that is a result of your brain in your gut talking to each other. . In addition to giving signals about whether or not, , we should eat or whether we're hungry, , there's a lot of emotional input as well at between your brain and your gut if you are stressed out or you're really sad about something, , you'll notice that you're not quite as hungry <hes>. . It's really amazing. . The ways that your brain and your gut can talk to each other. . Yeah because like you know if you're sad then the guts like, , oh, , man, , my partners bombed-out. . No, I'm , bummed up. . Remember seeing my best friend at spirit of math new looked bummed out some. . Oh Dude what happened and then he said, , Oh, , my hamstring. . Then, , he was just green me the whole time interest made meekly music ono. . When he said. . So. . If my gut brain my head brain relic close friends. . Do I make my head brain. . Sad when I eat something, , you know kinda nasty. . Let me ask you a question. Have . you ever eaten a food that you used to like and now you don't Wanna eat it at all ever again just thinking about it makes you feel sick no. . Well, , that's happened to me and it's happened to one of my best friends. She . hates macaroni and cheese which I think is crazy but she just doesn't like it anymore because one time she ate it made her sick. . And this has to do with really intricate and elegant way that your memories are formed. . In how they make you react to certain situations and the gut brain axis has a very important role in that. . So our eyes and our senses are tied to our head brain and those will help make us recognize the MAC and cheese. . Right? ? Right. . So the GUT brain needs to communicate with the head brain 'cause they head brain can recognize it. . Yeah. . So the next time, , the food goes into your brain will say last time I. . Am you system it told me this. . So maybe just have bad memories associated with this, , and then completely affects whether you want to eat that food or not. . You know when like your own don't WanNa buy the candy bar or save money you're stuck with the indecision and then like if you're with like your parent or a friend, , they'll just be like, , Hey, , do trust your gut <hes>. . Do you think that's like scientifically accurate? ? Any think scientist was actually like I am smart scientists. . Your has brain trust. . Your Gut because it has brain you know a lot of it has to do with this memory formation. . Sometimes, , we don't remember the memory, , but our brain subconsciously remembers it and our gut awesome remembers it and so together, , they are able to tell us that, , hey, , trust us on this point and you know make this decision versus that decision. . When you say trust your gut do you think that's the brain thinking and then the message get sent to the got? ? Or do you just think it's the GOP itself? ? Your Gut doesn't come up with it on his own. . Your brain sends a message Cheer Gut. . You're just not aware of it, , and then you're then response sends a message to your brain and you're aware of that one. . and. . Then you get that feeling from it and and you make your decision whatever it is that you decide you know sometimes people fight against their gut feeling. . And they go with just their head brain half the time it works and halftime the time it doesn't does that mean? Do ? you think you should trust the got it self or the brain if you take one away, , you break that whole. . Cycle of communication, , and then the messages you get are Gonna be different. . They're not going to be full. . You're going to be missing part of the story and so I really think it's both you have to trust both. . and. . Then if your gut brain is gone on your head brain is sad because he does never friend yeah. . Exactly. . Maybe, , the gut brain is the head brains only friend and only possible friend. .

"Hey everybody say John Popham. Here founded the school of Evolutionary herbalism, and it's QNA day today and. This week's question that I wanted to share with you all is. Is a very interesting question that comes up from time to time in regards to weather and herb can actually work like an antibiotic and possible benefits and possible risks. and terms of using herbs to treat pathogenic infections, and I think this is pretty relevant topic these days as we are in the midst of the whole Covid, nineteen situation and I'm seeing more and more people reaching out. To plants as ways of strengthening your immune system and wanting to look at antiviral antibacterial herbs, and how to protect themselves and their family. But as most of US know. Standard, antibiotics can have pretty detrimental effects on the body specifically in regards to the Gut Flora so in this week's Cuna. We're GONNA be talking about <hes> antiseptic antimicrobial plants, and they're kind of weighing their benefits and risks, and also kind of a what I think is a really excellent discussion in terms of the difference between how an herbal medicine works in the human organism in contrast to how a lot of pharmaceutical medications, specifically antibiotics work in the human organism. So I hope you enjoy the question answer for this week I question number one here is. Coming to us from Sharing Lemay and Materia Medica monthly. And Sharon his asking since Lemay kills off micro-organisms, is there a danger? It will destroy our gut flora the same way an antibiotic would especially if we drink it as a tea. Does using the tincture, keep it in the respiratory system, so it never gets down into the gut in any meaningful strength, so when used for a cold slash flu situation, the Gut Flora are not impacted, although since also affects the urinary tract. It seems its powers. Go throughout the body, so I'm just wondering if we are nuking. Gut Flora with Lemay mation great question Sharon. This is actually. This question brings up some really interesting dynamics. I think in the way that we think about how an herbal medicine works in contrast to how drugs work right. So this is a question that I actually quite a bit not just around lamasion, but around other herbs to especially see this one a lot with a lot of the. In containing plants. High drastic candidate insists golden seal. Mahoney Aquaphor Liam. Grape a cop, this or gold thread. Really any plant that you look it up in your book and you see. Anti Microbial. Antibacterial Oh. Is this going to adversely affect the Gut Flora? Generally speaking, I think the best answer to that question is for the most no. Obviously I don't really know if there's been a whole lot of scientific research where they measured someone's Gut, Flora. And then they took you know some of these whole plants. Or tinctures teas of these plants, and then measured it again and found that they were adversely affected. I'm not sure if that exists but from a clinical perspective. Through utilizing these remedies, we don't really see any of the. After effects that are pretty common. From as Sharon said, nuking the Gut Flora with an antibiotic right, which be off. Fatigue or post antibiotic use. Digestive imbalances. It's really common these days for. People to have digestive symptoms, digestive issues, and when we really do some digging in to the case and figure out we'll. When did it start a lot of times? You can trace it back to a time when that person was put on around of antibiotics, so it's really common. I've used a lot of verbs that are typically considered anti microbial antibacterial herbs and haven't seen anything that would indicate that it's adversely affecting the gut flora, and especially in the case with limitation.

That might not be wrong that I hate for people to self diagnose and then find out that they did it wrong so if you if you feel like something's off please go see a doctor but there's a lot of different things I mean. Obviously you can feel gas and you can feel bloating and you can feel abdominal pains but but there are other things like If you feel like they're pains that aren't going away or if their symptoms that aren't going away definitely go see a doctor absolutely and I think that's great advice so in the everyday support of our gut.

Hey let's take some digestion along with us just in case and so you have your soft gels For Convenience Sake as well we also have terrorism which is a digestive enzyme. Our stomach has to break down food and our intestines have to break down food. And there's all different kinds of foods. Most of US HAVE ENOUGH DIGEST. Sign digestive enzymes to be able to help us with this but some of US need a little extra help sometimes and so there are enzymes to break down proteins and breakdown fats.

And it's in a really tasty drop and so they're really handy as well but we launched something new last year which is a Heiferman Soft Gel.

Because you need it to survive the stomach it needs. It needs to get through the stomach and get into the intestines where it can do. Its its job. And so that's why it's enteric coated. And here's what peppermint soft. Gel does the peppermint oil helps to relax the smooth muscles in in the lining of the intestines in the stomach. But you don't want that to happen to up to high because if it happens in your asaf against or in your in your throat then gas gets too high. And that's where you get heartburn and so when its enteric coated those gases are released and so it keeps them down lowered. They can't do any damage. Oh that's why enteric coated is so important for peppermint Parent Soft Gel. And that's and that's why that's such a great product. I want more people to know about that because it's a great product with a lot of science behind it. There's so many different studies.

"You're Assaf against your stomach to your small and large intestines and without going into an anatomy lesson. You know your gut is your second brain so they found that there are neurotransmitters that you think would just residing the brain. Along the entire Vegas Nerve Tear Gut. So things like Serotonin. They've actually found in the gut to show that there is this huge connection between what happens in your digestive track affects you like cognitively which is going to affect you emotionally and mentally and vice versa. So you know your gut. Health is your ability to break down food to assimilate the nutrients to digest to remove taxes from your body to have healthy poops. You know like it's that's gut health you know. And and Kinda gets blanketed as the general thing. But it's kind of the entire. It's your body's ability to fight off pathogens. How easily you get sick. You know that has is associated to your gut. Health is gut health in terms of taking care of your health. Obviously there's genetics that go into like what but obviously I'm assuming diet plays a big role into to improving health. Yes there's a lot of times like Olive Kline. She'll be like oh you know my mom had IBS. My Dad had stomach issues. So I have stomach issues and inherently you will you. You will get some genetic factors from your parents. You inherit their digestive track. But it's not a foregone conclusion that that's just the way it's GonNa be for you so just like we're finding more about God health. We're also finding more out that the human body is able to based on its epigenetics. He'll or improve or decrease in decline in house depending on what you do with your body and genetics given so we can see somebody who maybe has a family history of you know. Metabol- metabolism issues or digestive issues improve and not have the same diagnosis or longevity or conditions that their family has and we can see people the opposite like start off strong and young buck and just not take care of themselves and then eventually kind of see this decline so it is something that can change and diet is huge. You know if there's one thing you have control over when it comes to your health is and that's the most repetitive is. What you feed or feel or don't feed or fuel your body on a daily basis. I'm sure there's so much you can do in terms of having great Great Diringer Gut House. But what are some of the common things that are out there? That people are eating that are like based off of convenience or are told that's healthy for them but they're in fact are really kind of damaging or hurting their gut health overall. So you know one of the things I'm going to say in. This might be a bit harsh for some people is is just processed refined grains in we. Don't think about that but it's like you know all your bagels and chips and you know all of those types of things because they they aren't really doing anything nutritionally for you except for maybe calories and carbs and macronutrients but they may be carrying with them a lot more crap in them so whether that be like additional fillers or sugars or additives that are really hard for your body to digest and get rid of and they can actually cause your gut to have Be Weaker you know to say easiest. They can be proponents to like indigestion. But then even bigger scale things like leaky gut where we see tied to allow more autoimmune cases and and more chronic illnesses long term. What are some things before we get to our questions of like some great easy convenient foods that people can use to help improve their health on a daily basis? Yeah so what? The other thing I was going to say is like Really crappy fats and top of that so bad oil so your vegetable oils canola oils. You're cottonseed oil soybean oil so like the biggest thing I can say for. People is look at the ingredients that are being made. If you see any of those oils. Just don't eat that food. There are plenty of options out there that are made with healthier oils like Avocado olive oil Coconut oil sesame seed oil healthy fats at available in product. So just look for the fat So my example for this. It's like nuts. Nuts are great healthy food but nuts cooked and made with peanut oil or concert oil. You take a healthy food and you've now made it like incredibly toxic because now it's like a non inflammatory food is now pro inflammatory. So you can't always black and white food a lot of it has to do with like how it's been process. Yeah exactly exactly. But some easy tips for improving health. You know we talked about this earlier. Is everyone focuses on what I should eat what I should eat. What does she eat? And actually if you pay a lot more attention to what you don't eat or more specifically like when you don't eat can do a lot for your gut so we are obsessed with snacking in this culture. We're obsessed with like convenience food we're obsessed with like feeling good and so we eat a lot and we really frequently and we eat really late. And we'd just start eating all the time and that never gives your gut a break and never gives your stomach the chance to just like not be digesting food and when it's not digesting food at actually can repair and he'll so much better and faster when there's nothing sitting in it so your body is going to always choose to digest food in your stomach over healing. Something that's going on because in like it needs to take care of it and so if we're constantly feeding ourselves we're telling our body to like constantly take care of digesting and you'll never heal so if we can take bigger brakes from eating whether that be just having set meals in a day or maybe you try something like intermittent fasting or an extended fast. You know with the guidance of somebody who knows what they're doing you can see so many chronic conditions clear up just by not consume mean as much or as frequently as you are now thanks for sharing.

William J. says we now know that for people with IBS stress and anxiety see that starts in the brain can lead to overreaction in the so that one experiences pain or diarrhea or constipation but the problems could also start start in the gut gut problems could lead to anxiety and mood changes the gut can function on its own it has nerves some research has called it a second brain you can disconnect the the big brain in the head from the GI tract and most of the functions will go on on their own and that's the principle behind point one of the treatments for IBS aside from Diet and medication a treatment that scientists have studied as early as the nineteen eighties got by record hypnosis hostess comfortable pillows and chairs. There are not pocket watches anywhere. Lindsey mckernan is an assistant professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Vanderbilt University Medical Center she studies and treats people who have chronic pain in IBS with clinical hypnosis if IBM is due to a patient Scott being oversensitive oversensitive then got started. hypnosis will focus some attention on their got. Tell it to relax. I Lindsay works with a patient to find a safe if place that they like to travel to in their mind that place of safety can really range from a person sitting in a chair in their own living room to being on the beach or being in the forest or actually being at the gym for some people. It's really just. Am somewhere that you feel completely comfortable and in control the patient should be relaxed next they could sit lie on the floor is closed is open whatever works for them by the way this is not meant to teach you how to do hypnosis so don't try this on your own so let's say the gym is your safe place so looking around and looking at what you can can see in the gym starting to elicit those sensations of what you can feel as you're in the gym could be lifting weights or working on a heavy bag agra even sitting down where your body feel more comfortable and relaxed and then you know when you're there and that's when suggestions begin and I might say An and now that you're here. I wonder what ways that your mind can help. You feel more comfortable. It may be your your mind anytime you feel discomfort allows your body to produce a sensation of cooling blue liquid beginning at the top of your neck moving down the body wrapping around the abdomen abdomen removing any areas of discomfort helping you feel more and more comfortable as it moves and Rapson wraps around Lindsay will guide an IBS patient into soothing state for twenty to forty minutes during a session. The goal is for them to do it themselves wherever and whenever they few stress on comfortable think think of like a mental pepito visible the you know if someone likes going to the beach but they're stuck in a landlocked state like Tennessee could be really helpful to feel like you're there and feel as comfortable as you do when you're sitting in front of the beach and watching the waves in a moment's notice while you're sitting in the car line waiting for your kids at the end of the day research and patient testimony shows this really does work for some people hypnosis is now an accepted treatment for IBS. There are professional standards and training for for how it's done insurance will pay for it including Medicare and a few state Medicaid programs remember Robin from the start of our story the landscape from IBM IBM has changed since she first got her diagnosis more than a decade ago for instance some magazines now labeled recipes to tell people have ibs whether they they work with the extremely restrictive diets and they had a little stamp on it just like you would see the GM for gluten free and I was like Oh wow like could when we get to that place but we still don't know a lot about what causes IBS and patients can have vastly different experiences so I'd say that anyone who is who's suffering with what has been diagnosed or not with IBS or a digestive disorder. It's really isolating and it's really the important to let people know about it and to ask for help. That story was reported by Alan You. It's frustrating to have a severe condition like irritable. Bowel Syndrome and not to understand what's driving the inflammation or causing the symptoms. The thing is when it comes to gut function. There are so many things we don't yet understand take for example in Tarot endocrine cells. This is a type of cell. That's found in your gut which is like an antenna so it sticks little fingers into your gut and it senses what's going on around it and so it can control control things like how much water you keep in your system. are you hungry. It sends these messages that you need to digest your food but how these cells ascending signals or what triggers them remains unknown. Abigail compass is trying to get a better handle on those types of questions. She is an assistant professor of chemical engineering hiring at northeastern university in Boston. We want to try to get out of doing animal studies and Studies on people which are very complex costly is totally time consuming instead her lab is creating little research platforms with human cells which we call organ on chips or micro physiological logical systems that mimic some of the physiology of people and animals so that we can then simplify the system to enable us to control troll the environment to ask very tight scientific questions that might be muddied in the more complex sort of human environment so if I I'm probably way a oversimplifying this here but are you basically trying to recreate something that resembles a human gut on a chip. Ah so that you can study stuff in it. That's exactly correct so we're trying to take some of the key the cell types that are found in our own body the cells that sort of makeup the layer or the epithelial cells which are the cells that absorb nutrients drugs in your gut if we take those cells else and we take cells from the nervous system that would then be relaying the information between the two and we put them alone in a system we can study how they talk to each other her which is really difficult in the body because you have thousands of other cells you have the bacterial component you have food you have different types of responses that your body might have and the immune component is there and there's just so many different players that it's hard to identify in a human. I and what the real important factors are and so we think by sort of taking a bottom up approach we can look at these two cells interacting together and then we can make it four cell types than we can make it six types and you can kind of build up the platform and understand the role that each cell type has in this system so if you think about your small intestine twenty two feet long when it's all stretched out and all the things that could happen in there along the way abigail chips are much more or manageable. I think they're pretty adorable. they can hold you can hold them in your hand on. They look like little kind of glass microscope slides if you think about like the microscope slides from biology class or you're looking at different samples under a microscope on their similar in size to those so one day. Fast Ford Award Twenty years or fifty years. What do you hope we'll be able to do sure into in twenty or fifty years. I hope that these technologies are sort of available in you know more clinical settings so that you'd hope that someone would be able to go in and say you know my stomach hurts or I have this other issue with my nervous system and we don't know what it is and perhaps this could be one diagnostic so you could take a biopsy from a person then you could do these different tests almost right there air in the clinical setting at the site of where the doctors are making their decisions. Abigail compasses an assistant professor of chemical engineering at the Eastern University in Boston. Joseph Friedman had produced the segment coming coming up when an important part of your digestive system gives up the ghost. I don't want to jump to surgery so let's try to make some diet changes all right. What kind of diet changes that's still to come on the pulse this. This is the pulse I mike and Scott were talking about the connection between our guts and our brains millions of Americans have got health issues for example persistent constipation and maybe part of the problem is our attitude toward gut function. Anything related to it. The smells the noises is considered embarrassing. Keep it to yourself not so in South Korea reporter Matthew Shh name and used to live there and he has has this story when I used to live in Jeju South Korean island just south of the mainland one of the first things I noticed was how people talked about poop is called Deng long in Korean they talked about it in both silly ways like the game of Kim which translates to Putin needle where kids poke each other in the but but poop was also taken seriously like friends talking about constipation. There's a poop deemed cafe in Seoul and poop sculptures scattered throughout the country my friend Darrell coot and his wife Young Jong. Lim Live in Jeju. They recently had a baby. Can Years Okay Yeah. I'm unhinging. We have the baby. We've tried to sedate her with snacks so hopefully she won't interrupt the baby. Aurora was present and that was quite fitting. Perhaps this is where the casual approach to Poop in South Korea starts young young noted the difference between her Canadian in laws and her Corinne parents in regards to Aurora's poop. I think your parents who are here or a farce. I think your parents. Let's didn't react okay but my parents. If she fars she makes like all the we know he's young junk told me about man's cafes which are. Internet groups were moms post pictures of their baby's. Poop a viewpoint for these groups. No not what the it's are uncommon in Korea. Did you could picture of baby down in you tonight. It's no more whatever they put on the Internet and asked about it or did you have a dog. This poop positive attitudes continues past Childhood Crean American journalist. Michelle no says her mom raised her to be conscious of her stool. In sometimes Michelle finds this cultural difference hard to navigate. I signed it weird like American talk about their dating lives with their parents of the dock warmer to me. That's not normal at all but talking about pooping and how big was your your your this morning and that's very normal to me the and like I that comes more naturally than telling my mom about who I'm dating which I've done maybe twice in my life. You Know Michelle says thinking about about digestion and poop is almost conscious. It's something that's constantly running through your mind when you make decisions about food it sort of how people what truck calories you know. I think Korean Korean track the the. I don't know the poop factor of each food food everything you eat. You'll you'll sort of think about it. Michelle's mom checks in on her regularly. She gives advice about size shape and texture of the poop. You have a little like the rabbit proof that very unhealthy. That's not good like you really trust out. My mom would say like you probably really anxious you. GotTa relax here. How some Kimchi I'M G. You know you know what you really want is like a solid like this size proof that comes out in like one go like that. You are peak healthier you my mom would be very proud like I would. If I pooped approved like that I would literally call my mom and tell her like I will be cheaper. Part of that story was reported by laymen phone..
"gut" Discussed on The Pulse
"I am one of those people that like if I haven't eaten I get hang agree and I just I can't focus and all I can think about is like get me a sandwich right now. I'm totally one of those people also meeting right now Salimullah L. and if I have an upset stomach I'm going to be in a bed Muna. No it and aggravated goes the other way to your mood affects your stomach comic Digest Shit. I stress eat at work not because I'm hungry bugs sorta like Lizard Brain reaction to a difficult situation at work. Sometimes when I feel anxious I can feel it in my stomach stomach crunches up or I can just feel like butterflies in my stomach and the thing is I have cast iron stomach. I can eat almost anything so my stomach does bother me. I know it stress related. How does this relationship and communication didn't work on this episode. We explored the deep connection between our brains and our guts gastroenterologist. Nathan Ahuja says from mouth to anus. Our gastrointestinal tract is is an incredibly sophisticated processing system. It's the sort of mechanism whose elegance I think reveals itself with the idea or the recognition ignition that so often. We're not aware of what it's doing. We're not aware because the system operates pretty independently there. There are a lot of neuro transmitters that are active in the gut and the same way that there are in the brain sometimes signed his called God our second brain the enteric herrick nervous system millions of nerve cells that line our entire digestive tract this nervous system directs digestion independently of the brain in our Hud's Hud's despite that our gods umbrians constantly talk to each other through a complicated network of nerve cells chemicals and four months. This is the gut brain axis yes so the gut brain axis basically. I You d multiple communication channel said exists between the GUT and the brain. That's Emerson Mayor. He is a guest entomologist and neuroscientist. The main highway for the gut brain connection is the vagus nerve which goes in both directions nations it stretches from the brain stem to the colon and among other things it sends signals related to stress anxiety inflammation signals from got can reach to brain and signals from the brain like during stress or emotions can reach the gut and then that whole system is also teaming with microbes microbes tiny organisms that live and work in our guts and add their own chatter into the channel so the microbes are just taking advantage. Zhou over very complex Bi Directional communication system that connects saugrain with our garden. Many scientists believe that the gut microbiome is a factor in mental illness and could come into play in treatment. It's certainly an active frontier in terms of research research urge still pretty theoretical but some pioneers are forging ahead to see if changing their gods can actually change their minds. Liz Tongue got their your story and just a note some of what we're about to hear make gross you out Carleen Aquarius. Oh Hey dad lives in Peru and he's been suffering with bipolar disorder for most of his life so do I think what they Cinco. I proven forty five years old married. I have five children and I live in northern Peru Cosima Emma Puta. He tried everything to get better but nothing seemed to work but I won't be because Giora wrinkle. I was Zombie in my own house. Crying feeling trapped. I'd so many suicidal thoughts as well as many obsessive thoughts things like that affected me people K. Kimmy Affect Kirwin describes it as hell on earth. He couldn't work couldn't be a father to his five kids going to boycott TAK- condoning persona. How can I explain when someone is depressed when you feel that everything is wrong. It's horrible. Nothing helps you. If someone tells as you you'll get better if you eat a lizard you eat it. You may not have looked for that solution but it was necessary crew in didn't eat a lizard lizard but what he ended up doing may sound worse to some people he heard about the idea of using fecal transplants to treat mental illness even found some how two videos online and he decided to try it himself using his wife as a stool donor. FECAL transplants are still relatively new so far they've mostly been and used to treat the difficult and sometimes deadly gut infection known as C. Diff with a curate of up to ninety percent traditionally C diff has been treated using antibiotics Roddick's but the thing is antibiotics collect the good bacteria in our guts along with the bad and that's a problem because our digestive systems depend on a healthy microbiome occur bio basically are bacterial ecosystems. You can think of it like a food processing factory all different micro. BIOTA are your workers each with their own job operating different machinery to break down and process their product too but when those good workers are wiped out the machinery might stop working even worse. There's no one to defend the factory when you get bad actors like C diff trying to take over would fecal transplants do is replenish the workforce course here's how it works. The donor is screened for diseases and infectious pathogens once cleared they donate their stool.
