Nothing could be more popular and exciting to healthy food and clinical nutrition advocates these days than the MICROBIOME. As a matter of fact, in San Rafael and other surrounding Marin County cities, the subject of the Microbiome is so popular that it is continually discussed on the radio (KPFA) and in social media and has become a very important part of the practice of Applied Clinical Nutrition in the entire Northern California region. What the microbiome is referring to is the populations of both friendly and unfriendly bacteria in your body – especially your digestive tract. Interestingly, there are more bacteria in your body than there are cells in the body.
As you may have already heard, San Rafael Chiropractor Dr. Ilya Skolnikoff, DC, DIBAK is the foremost expert when it comes to understanding and treating imbalances of the Microbiome in San Rafael as well as the entire Northern California Bay Area. In order to get help with Ileocecal Valve Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Autism and a variety of different types of Autism Spectrum Disorders such as ADD and ADHD and Hyperkinesis, patients will travel from Massachusetts and even further just to be able to experience the fast and permanent results that Dr. Skolnikoff is able to offer. To learn more, it would be highly recommended that you pick up and read the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride. Much of the published and unpublished work by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, MD would also be highly recommended. There is a movie called “Vaxxed” which is also an excellent resource for learning more and understanding the brain / gut connection.
Did you know that they have done studies of the Microbiome that have discovered that there seems to be a major benefit to transplanting the Microbiome. In the eastern region of Africa one scientist who was having a particularly large amount of digestive stress was able to transplant the microbiome of a local African with excellent digestion into his own gut. This seemed to help his digestion quite a bit but the improvement was short lived for only a couple of months or less.
Butyrate is a metabolite of the microbiome that is taken up by the large intestine cells and may be used for energy.
Nutritionists will actually have you thinking that you are going to need to take someone’s fecal material, their shit, and insert it directly up into your anus and that this “transplantation of the microbiome” will allow you to live a healthier, longer and happier life. The research shows that there is some benefit to this crude and not so pleasant m
In the next video I’m talking about how to treat infections but also how just making some changes in your diet can help you to release the infections or prevent it from coming back.
