Brain "Gut" Debate

Created by Joel Crandall

A few things to think about

  • In College our Professor used the Analogy of the Thermostat and the Heating Unit. The Person Sets the Temp on the Thermostat (Perception of Hot/Cold)
  • The Thermostat being the Brain. Controls the Balance of the Temp.
  • Heater - The Body/Gut. Lets Brain know if too cold or too hot

Stay free of allergies with NAET

STAY FREE OF ALLERGIES FOR LIFE! I couldn't believe my eyes when I read those words. They were my introduction to Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, or "NAET" — a dramatic new treatment for the cure of allergies (and sensitivities).

I am one of the 35 million Americans who know they have allergies and who want and pray for relief. The discovery of NAET treatment came as incredible, welcomed news. For the 50% of Americans (128 million people) suffering from various health problems caused by allergies not yet known to them, NAET will come as an astonishing surprise.

For we, the allergic (and sensitivities), there is the possibility of an attack any time we introduce anything into our body or environment. I define an allergy to be an unusual or exaggerated response of sensitive individuals to certain substances. This type of biological hypersensitivity occurs in sensitive individuals, while remaining innocuous in similar amounts and circumstances in others. (Note: Be aware that this definition of "allergy" is quite different than the medical definition. I prefer to use the term "sensitivities." I have seen NAET effectively treat both allergies and sensitivities.)

'The Mind-Gut Connection':

mind gutArticle Written by Carey Goldberg September 16, 2016

Could Your Gut Microbes Be Affecting How You Feel?

I’d just gotten used to the idea that I’m a walking mountain of microbes. The sizzling field of research into the microbiome — our full complement of bugs — is casting new light on our role as homes to the trillions of bacteria that inhabit each of us. At least most of them are friendly, I figured.

But now comes the next microbial shift in my self-image, courtesy of the new book “The Mind-Gut Connection.” My trillions of gut microbes, it seems, are in constant communication with my brain, and there’s mounting evidence that they may affect how I feel — not just physically but emotionally.

Does this mean — gulp — that maybe our bugs are driving the bus? I spoke with the book’s author, Dr. Emeran Mayer, professor of medicine and psychiatry at UCLA, executive director of the Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience and expert in brain-gut microbiome interactions. Edited excerpts:

So we’re not only packed with trillions of gut microbes but they’re in constant cross-talk with our brains — that’s the picture?

First of all, you have to realize that these are invisible creatures. So even though there are 100 trillion of them living in our gut, you wouldn’t be able to see them with the naked eye. It’s not like something tangible sitting inside of you, like another organ.

These minuscule creatures live in different parts of your gut, most of them sitting at the mucus layer that is just on top of your gut surface. That allows them to be just microns away from receptors and sensors with which your gut records the chatter that goes on between them and measures what goes on inside.

Cannabis oil improves Crohn's disease symptoms: study

Article Written by Daniel Otis October 21, 2018 CTV News

Cannabis oil can “significantly” improve Crohn’s disease symptoms.

“(S)tudies have shown that many people with Crohn's disease use cannabis regularly to relieve their symptoms,” Dr. Timna Naftali, an Israeli gastroenterologist who also teaches at Tel Aviv University, said in a written statement. “It has always been thought that this improvement was related to a reduction in inflammation in the gut and the aim of this study was to investigate this.”

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Article Written by Douglas A. Wyatt, J.D.
The Sovereign Health Initiative

Unraveling the Cause of Chronic Disease & Harnessing the Power to Heal

Leaky gut syndrome, also referred to as leaky gut or intestinal permeability, is arguably the most prolific killer in the United States. Leaky gut syndrome is a condition that affects you and everyone you know, and it can take decades off your life and cause untold misery. However, you probably know it by another name, or names. It is called food allergies, arthritis, asthma, autism, cancer, Crohn’s disease, dementia, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, IBS, inflammatory heart disease, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, schizophrenia, scleroderma, ulcerative colitis, or any of the hundreds of autoimmune diseases identified to date. More than two millennia ago, Hippocrates said that “All disease begins in the gut.” If he was around today, he’d need to revise that famous quote to, “All disease begins in a leaky gut.”

The Relationship of Adverse Childhood Experiences to Adult Health:

traumaArticle Written by Vincent J. Felitti, MD Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program

Turning gold into lead

The question of what determines adult health and well-being is important to all countries. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study1 is a major American research project that poses the question of whether, and how, childhood experiences affect adult health decades later. This question is being answered with the ongoing collaboration of Robert Anda, MD at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the cooperation of 17,421 adults at Kaiser Permanente’s Department of Preventive Medicine in San Diego, California. Kaiser Permanente is a multispecialty, prepaid, private health insurance system or Health Maintenance Organization [HMO]. The findings from the ACE Study provide a remarkable insight into how we become what we are as individuals and as a nation. They are important medically, socially, and economically2. Indeed, they have given us reason to reconsider the very structure of primary care medical practice in America.
