What's Really Going On In Our Gi Tract?

8 posts in this topic

I've been wanting to start on probiotics which lead me to poking around in different research leading me to this page:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/19/magazine/say-hello-to-the-100-trillion-bacteria-that-make-up-your-microbiome.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1&

It is a very long read but packed with info about our guts. All very interesting and I just thought I would share, I feel like this is great research! Please give me your thoughts!

Yeah I thought it was very fascinating! I knew we had a lot going on in there and lots of tiny organisms at work but I liked this guys angle and how he related it to farming. Thank you both for reading, I know it was really long but was interesting enough to keep me reading.

that is really interesting, brandi - thanks.  although all the fecal implant references made me go 'ewwww'  lolz.  reminded me of something, too - my sister is a much better housekeeper than i (she also had half as many kids!  in my defense!) my house was always a little sticky and tracked up.  she sanitized/degermed everything and her kids were sick alllllll the time.  mine were hardly ever sick, which is kind of a miracle being as there were so many of them so twice as much exposure to everything and all kinds of opportunities to bring germs home to the family.   she also was a 'run to the doctor' at the drop of a hat while i (had no $$ haha) waited to see if their illness would go away on it's own <80% of the time it did.  they are still pretty germ resistant, i guess, they don't catch every little thing that comes around even as adults :)  good thing i'm a slob hahahahahahahaaaa   ^_^

I kinda grossed out on that part too lol!

I think your on the right track there, when I had my first son I was over board with Lysol and bleach everyday! He would get sick more than when I had my second son and I wasn't so on top of it they rarely get sick.... Plus they play outside more and I'm and organic gardener now too and they help a lot, always getting dirty. I do think we have to allow things into our systems for our bodies to gain a defense to them.

There is so potential in this research, I really enjoyed reading it!

Thanks Brandi, it's a real interesting article for sure.  It reminds me of certain kids wanting to eat dirt.  I wonder if they somehow know it is good for them?  After all, everybody loves a little mud pie right?  :)

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
