ALS is a motor neuron diseasealso spelled "motor neurone disease", which is a group of neurological disorders that selectively affect motor neuronsthe cells that control voluntary muscles of the body. This form is called "bulbar onset".
On the show, you will learn: What makes a good microbiome go bad How antibiotics, wheat, and C-sections effect gut bacteria Understanding the link between your microbiome and your brain And so much more!
I just wanted to share our review of the week. I read them all, and they help shape the show.
No more going off the grid, Abel! Plenty more shows and fun to come in the weeks ahead. So, what is it? Then, we had very little to offer patients.
They modulate our metabolisms and determine the set point for inflammation, regulate our immunity, manufacture nutrients for the brain and regulate levels of serotonin.
In the 14th century, the bubonic plague wiped out a third of Europe… so that fear was valid. But years ago, they discovered a probiotic aspect to bacteria—this bacteria clustered in the intestines controls our physiology, and this is very exciting!
We are finally paving the way in terms of keeping the brain healthy. Preventative medicine in the arena of the brain and recognition that brain health aligns itself so much more with preventative medicine than any other organ of the body—this is remarkable.
And that is strongly influenced by our environmental choices, mostly the food we eat. Ina scientific study characterized the difference between gut bacteria in kids in sub Saharan Africa to those of children in Europe.
Those kids living in rural primitive population centers actually had a high degree of diversity of gut bacteria compared to kids in Europe eating a Western diet.
Changes we see in comparison of the two populations is quite vast: In this study, it was found that the African subset has far less of Firmicutes as compared to the Bacteroidetes. Why is that important?
Higher levels of the Firmicutes are associated with obesity, diabetes, inflammation, and activating maladaptive gene pathways from our own DNA. The tragic state of our gut health, on a standard American diet, is leading to higher rates of these inflammatory diseases.
Vaginal delivery allows the baby to pass through the birth canal, where lives a whole host of life- sustaining bacteria, and that will inoculate that child with bacteria. It also allows them to digest breastmilk.

Children born by C section to not have that microbial baptism. When a baby is born caesarian, it deprives a newborn of a very powerful event in terms of their immune system and overall health. Autism, ADhD, celiac disease, type 1 Diabetes, and adulthood obesity are strongly related to being born by caesarian section.
Bacteria on the skin of the breast that the child imbibes will become part of his or her healthy microbiome… and thus breastfeeding helps protect the immune system and help prevent inflammatory diseases like those mentioned above.
We are seeing a substantial over-usage of antibiotics in children… and in adults as well! But people gotta get back to work.ALS (Lou Gerhig's Disease) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks both the upper and lower motor neurons of the body, slowly robbing the body’s ability to walk, talk, move and breathe on its own.
The life expectancy is years, depending on the disease’s progression, and it affects about 2 out of every , people. Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyloid lateral sclerosis (ALS), is a progressive disorder that devastates motor nerve cells.
People with ALS slowly lose the ability to control muscle movement, and are. Mar 14, · Stephen Hawking had ALS. What is it? A look at the motor neuron disease. Hawking was confined to a wheelchair by a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Film Shows One Man's Battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease. (MND), and Lou Gehrig's disease. He and his wife, Louise, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease in .
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting the nerve cells of the spinal cord and brain. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure.
