Is Your Problem Psychosomatic Or In Your Gut?

Mental state & stress modify the body’s microbiome and hormone signaling – new research concludes.

Our brain is the central organ of behavior, but the mind is more than brain. The mind covers the whole body, consciousness, & the unconscious.  Natural medicine and ancient Greek medicine recognized body and mind as a unit. The mind has memory of macro an micro struggles that affect our future behavior.

There has been recent emphasis on the role of social relationships in our physical health and longevity(e.g., Buettner, 2012, The Blue Zones), the support we receive from others (Cohen et al., 2000), the quality and quantity of our social interactions (Kiecolt-Glaser & Newton, 2001), and our feelings of isolation and loneliness (Cacioppo et al., 2002) have all been identified as predictors of health and wellbeing.

Social Interaction

Here are five questions about the association between social ties and health:

● Which characteristics of the social environment are beneficial for health?

● How do these characteristics of our social environment improve our health?

● Can our social environment be destructive to our health?

● Is it the social environment or our personalities that really matter?

● Can our social environments be changed to improve our health?

All Disease Begins In The Gut” 

Hippocrates, made this statement more than two thousand years ago. The more we learn with our modern scientific tools, the more we realize just how correct Hippocrates was: all diseases do begin in the gut! Science has discovered, that about 90% of all cells and all genetic material of the human body belongs to the gut flora – a mixture of various microbes, which live inside our digestive tract. So, in reality your body is just a shell, a 10%, providing a habitat for this mass of micro-creatures living inside you; and their role in your health and physiology is monumental. Our modern world poses many dangers for human gut flora, and once it is damaged, the health of the whole body enters a downward slide towards disease.

Remember: Truth is learned, not told!
