Eye Floaters

eye floatersNow, these are not dangerous to your sight but so annoying.   Just what you need a cobweb between you and the world around you.   Fortunately, they can move but always come back.

I know how annoying they can be, so I looked around and found what information I could and have an article on MCVitamins on what diet can do to get rid of this problem.

It does take work to get rid of them, but intermittent fasting and changing your diet to get the best vitamins that your eyes need, Of course, a better diet and you will feel all around good.    Eye Floaters

Protecting Your Teeth and Gums

Is brushing and flossing teeth the solution to tooth decay?

Why does bacteria create infection in your teeth?

After trying my whole life to protect my teeth, the dentist would frown, shake his head and say I have cavities or worse, a tooth was loose.

So I began researching and here is what I found:

What Stops You from Reaching your Health Goals?

Gut=brain axis and health
Gut brain connection, dysbiosis and microbiome. Normal and abnormal microbiota. Enteric nervous system, intestine anatomy. Signals from brain to digestive tract. Colon and cerebrum vector illustration

You can have a great diet.   You can take first rate supplements,

BUT if your gut isn’t working right, you don’t get the benefits.

Bottom Line is that you need to build healthy digestion,  If your digestion isn’t up to par, you won’t be able to use the nutrition to create health.

The Gut-Brain Axis is the communication system between the brain and the trillions of bacteria and enzymes living within our intestines – our gut microbiome.

So, improve your gut and you improve your brain, your digestion, your nerves,  your immune system.

This is the most important scientific discovery for human healthcare in recent decades.

How the Gut-Brain Axis Can Affect Your Health?

Medical science has recently discovered that a root cause of particular health issues involves the gut and the Gut-Brain Axis.

The Gut-Brain Axis is the communication system between the brain and the trillions of bacteria and enzymes living within our intestines – our gut microbiome.

The gut microbiome weighs about 2 kg and is bigger than the average human brain. It’s an active community of trillions of bacteria and microbes.

The gut microbiome is a crucial part of this gut-brain connection. It develops simultaneously with the central nervous system and has a powerful influence over many different mental processes.

Multiple studies have shown that the composition of our gut bacteria has a profound impact on mental health and the functioning of our nervous system.

Gut microbes make a number of chemicals that affect how our brains function. Gut microbes play a crucial role in brain development and the flow of signaling information across the central nervous system.

As neurotransmitters synthesized by the brain are involved in regulating mental health, emotions, behaviors, and mood, a disrupted gut microbiome can play a significant role in neurological conditions.

“The gut microbiome is the most important scientific discovery for human healthcare in recent decades,” says James Kinross, a microbiome scientist and surgeon at Imperial College London. “We discovered it – or rediscovered it – in the age of genetic sequencing less than 15 years ago. The only organ that is bigger is the liver.”

Professor Jack Gilbert, an award-winning microbiome scientist at the University of California San Diego and author, has stated, “Over the last 80 years and since the dawn of antibiotics, there has been a multi-generational loss of microbes that appear to be important for human health. They are passed from mother to child (during birth, via breast milk and skin contact) throughout the generations, but at some point, in the last three or four generations, we lost some. We’re not entirely sure if the cause was our lifestyle, our diet, cleanliness in our homes or the use of antibiotics. We’re missing certain immune stimulants that people in the developing world have plenty of.”

The gut’s microbiome is critical for short-term and long-term health. Given all the new data about the importance of the gut microbiome and the gut-brain axis, there are steps you can take to ensure you maintain a healthy gut microbiome.

Studies suggest having a diverse population of gut microbes is directly associated with better health.

The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation suggests the following:
“Make sure to eat your vegetables!
“Especially the leafy green ones. Vegetables are loaded with fibers which cannot be digested by people but are consumed by the good bacteria in your gut. It has been observed that people who follow a diet rich with fruits and vegetables are less likely to grow disease-causing bacteria. Some great examples of vegetables that feed your microbes are:
• Leeks
• Onions
• Asparagus
• Broccoli
• Spinach.
“Stock up on dietary sources of prebiotics
“Prebiotics are food for your microbiome! It’s important to feed these little guys to give them the energy they need to complete their very important task of managing your enteric (relating to the intestines) nervous system.

Here is a list of dietary prebiotics that should be staples in your home kitchen:
• Apples
• Leeks
• Onions
• Cocoa Extracts
• Garlic
• Bananas
• Asparagus
• Nuts
• Seeds
• Red Wine Extracts
• Root Vegetables
• Beans
• Lentils
• Chickpeas
• Green Tea Extracts.
“Fermented foods are gut-friendly
“Fermented foods are another great source of probiotics.

The crowd favorite is yogurt, however, if you’re going to be eating a lot of yogurt, make sure that it is sugar-free! There are several other options that are a great source of good bacteria. Kombucha is becoming a very popular source of probiotics. You can also eat things like pickles, kimchee, and kefir to ensure that you’re getting enough live cultures to keep your gut healthy and happy.”

Supplements Can Help, Too

Taking supplements that contain probiotics to support an optimum microbiome can help, too.
