Think for a second, just think, for every cell in your body, we have 90% cells of bacteria living in and on our body. It can be a little creepy if you think about it too much.
Most of these bacteria habitat inside our intestinal tract, otherwise known as "gut". The health of this organism is paramount to the health of your body.
80% of our immune system spends most of its time around the gut. The health of our gut bacteria and the health of our immune system are dependably linked. When the gut bacteria are balanced, immune system is also balanced. But when it's out of balance, so is our immune system.
Food sensitivities are a major sign and cause of an immune system imbalance. Food, specifically undigested protein, looks just like a virus or bacteria and our immune system creates an antibody to it. What is seen over and over again in practice is that once we discover the foods that are not digesting properly we can gain control over allergies, eczema, and many inflammatory conditions.
Undigested protein gets into our blood stream through a "leaky gut". These proteins can stimulate our immune system for up to 5 days. This is why it's so difficult to figure out our food sensitivities. Even a small amount of gluten, dairy, corn , or our cultural and festive special food each week can cause our immune system to remain over-stimulated and we will feel different symptoms continuously even if we've tried our best to reduce these possible triggers.
When our gut is hosting 75% beneficial bacteria, our body (digestion, immunity, brain) is able to create balance. But when the prevalent bacteria in our gut is 'bad' bacteria (bacteria that does not assist us), they allow for an overgrowth of yeast, molds, and fungus - as well as many digestive symptoms, like bloating, foul-smelling gas, distention, pain, constipation, diarrhea, and a "leaky gut."
The best way to balance our immune system is by having a healthy and strong digestive system and cooperative relation with the gut bacteria, and this means our gut bacteria needs to be in balance. So, think what we are eating frequently? And think before eating .
