Microbiome and other keys to Gut Health

Could it really be true that the organisms inside you are ‘making’ you crave and want things (like foods) that are bad for you?

As crazy and paranoid as it may seem, the answer, I believe, is actually Yes!

Realising this was a huge breakthrough in my own health, and it’s something I’ve been teaching about inside my coaching programs for a few years.

However, I didn’t talk about it too much in public, because I know it sounds really wacky.

I first came across this idea when reading a book called Parasite Rex.

Here’s a quote from the back cover:

Learn How Parasites can change DNA, rewire the Brain, make men more distrustful and women more outgoing, and turn hosts into the living dead

Now, this book was not about how parasites effect humans, but why would we be exempt from this?

BTW, if you’re thinking:

‘I don’t have parasites’

You may be right, by one definition.

But if you include bacteria, fungi, yeast, mould and viruses, in that category, as I do, then it’s true to say we all have them.

And, just in the last few years, there’s been massive research in the role that our Gut bacteria have on our health, and also in the level of sentience they have, and the amount of control they have over us.

The Truth will SHOCK you.

So, in this interview, you’ll learn:

+ Why Gut Health is so important

+ Why and How the Bad Organisms can start to take over?

+ What happens when they take control

+ Why it’s so hard to get into health habits

+ What we can do, Step by Step, to get out Gut Healthier.

And, more!

    What a great interview. I’ve taken notes to follow through on several points of action and have downloaded it to listen again and as a future reference. Thank you for posting the links as well. As always you have delivered an abundance of important information in a concise way that makes it easy to understand and is motivating.

      that’s really awesome to hear, thanks Bonnie. And congrats on taking action on what you’ve learned, that’s really super important. Glad you’re enjoying the interviews so far. We have a really great one coming your way tomorrow, so stay tuned!

    Elwin and Helen~ Thank you! Great information! Very very helpful and relevant in all ways!

      that’s awesome, thanks Kate!

    Thank you for all the wonderful information which gives understanding. There are many things here I can work on. Yes, the challenge is with children! This was a fantastic interview!

    • lionadmin August 22, 2014 at 2:21 pm #

      Awesome Bridget, happy to hear you’ll be taking action.
      Agreed, re: children, and maybe I can interview Helen on that in a future interview, as she’s very good with this.
      In the meantime though, and I’m sure Helen will agree, it must always start with you. And, if you do everything that’s healthy, and if you do it joyfully, without any inner conflict, I’m sure that having children follow your lead is pretty inevitable.

      Hi Helen & Bridget 🙂 Here’s something that’s really easy to do with children to improve their Microbiome …’get mucky’ 😉 There’s lots of research showing that exposure to microbes in the soil can help help our immune system & mood! The microbiome exists on our skin, it’s our first defense to intruders, even viruses. We can also help to keep its balance by not using soap, unless absolutely necessary…again really easy to do with kids 😀 x x x

    Thank you both for this very informative and illuminating interview. Helen, would you kindly share your recipe for sauerkraut? I tried making some a little while ago and it came out way too salty.
    When you spoke about how organisms with an opposing agenda can make it really hard to make decisions in your own best interests that really resonated! Evidently you have overcome them and gone beyond the conflict Elwin which is very inspiring. I’ll get there. Thanks again.

One Trackback

  1. […] Sugar destroys your microbiome. Our guts are full of bacteria, many of which play an important role in governing our health, including a robust immune system. Sugar facilitates the overgrowth of yeasts, candida, parasites and other opportunistic organisms. These are often responsible for many of our cravings because they love sugar even more than you do.
