Microbiome: Chris Woollams, M.A. (Oxon) in his book The Secret Source of your Good Health” writes on how it is linked to allergies, Alzheimer’s, asthma, arthritis, autism, blood pressure, cancer, colitis, Crohn’s disease, dementia, diabetes, eczema, hay fever, heart disease, IBS, multiple sclerosis, obesity, Parkinson’s, strokes, wheezing and, of course, longevity.
You would have to ask the question:
Is there any part of your body that your microbiome does not affect?
A five hour read that could change your life; the book is about your gut bacteria. Sounds boring? Well, it's not, especially when you come to realise that all the very latest research shows that almost every illness (from diabetes to dementia, and cancer to heart disease) seems to start in the gut. Indeed, your gut bacteria become ill first - then you become ill; worse, you can't get better until they get better. As always, Chris explains the problem then tells you the simple steps you can take towards a solution. A must read book.

NaturalNews dated 20 November 2017 published this article “The health of your gut microbiome could predict your risk of heart disease, researchers find.” The article goes on to say:
“The most common lifestyle risk factors of heart diseases and stroke are unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, tobacco smoke, and heavy alcohol drinking, and in a new study, researchers have discovered another link between gut bacteria and health. The new study has found that the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract could have an influence on the risk of cardiovascular diseases.”

GreenMedia on 29 May 2015 provide information with regard to the vaccine industry. The article goes on to say:
“Though the vaccine industry has fully acknowledged their products require a healthy microbiome to be effective, they haven't come forward to ask if the microbiome may also be the source of vaccine injury. If the microbiome is the solution, then perhaps it's also the problem.
But scientists aren't asking. It's as if they aren't interested in vaccine safety. They only want to develop new vaccines and improve vaccine response. And that's pretty sad considering chronic childhood diseases on the rise and an apparent autism epidemic.”
On 6 May 2015 NaturalNews advise that Monsanto is being sued with a class action emanating from California. The law suit points out “that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is killing not only plants but also targeting specific enzymes in the microbiome of the human gut.”

Dr Mercola on 9 March 2015 provides information:
NaturalHealth 365 on 20 February 2015 brings us this information:
“An estimated 50 percent of chronic diseases and inflammatory conditions are actually linked to a single source – ‘leaky gut syndrome’, or LGS. People with LGS have irritated intestinal linings that allow toxins, bacteria and food particles to seep out of the gut and into the bloodstream.
As a result, the body’s major defense mechanisms, including the immune system, liver and lymphatics, become compromised – over time. Gradually, the body begins to turn on itself, attacking its own tissues and ultimately causing the onset or worsening of conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines and even asthma.”
NaturalNews on 5 February 2015 provides the following information:
“A sick gut is overrun with bad bacteria and yeast. We label bacteria as good when the bacteria benefit us. Good bacteria help us further digest our food, they produce serotonin (a necessary neurotransmitter), and they create byproducts through their metabolic processes that are either beneficial to us or benign. They also play a very important role in keeping both bad bacteria and yeast in check.”
NaturalHealth 365 on 2 January 2015 advises:
“A new, groundbreaking study led by researchers at The University of Helsinki Institute of Biotechnology in Finland recently published findings in The Journal of Movement that the gut microbiology of Parkinson’s patients is significantly correlated with disease progression. Compared to the control group of relatively healthy persons, those with Parkinson’s have vastly different gut bacteria.”

NaturalHealth365 dated 17 November 2014 brings information on new research with regards to whether gut bacteria is the cause of obesity. Click here to read the article. The article goes on to say:
“Known collectively as the microbiome, these trillions of live bacteria found in the human body influence everything from your immune system to your likelihood of developing chronic degenerative disease. These families of bacteria weigh about four pounds and actually outnumber the amount of cells in the body.
The size and weighty influence of these collective bacteria are so significant that some scientists have begun thinking of the microbiome as a “shadow organ” of the human body. With advanced gene technologies being developed, this extra organ is getting greater attention from scientists worldwide.”
Dr Mercola on 6 October 2014 advises that the culprits of autism have been identified. They are
He goes on to say:
“Three decades ago, autism affected one in 10,000 children. Today, autism is estimated to afflict as many as one in 50
Researchers are now starting to understand how a child’s microbiome can play an important role, either by exacerbating or even causing autistic symptoms. New studies suggest restoring microbial balance may alleviate autistic symptoms”

GreenMedia on 11 September 2014 brings an article by Kelly Brogan MD with regards to the term “evolutionary mismatch”. Kelly goes on to say:
“This is the term that encompasses the root cause of most modern ills. We are living a lifestyle – read diet, stress level, movement and sunlight deficiency, toxic exposures, pharmaceuticals – that is incompatible with what our genome has evolved, over millions of year, to expect. Two specific points on the temporal chart – the Neolithic or agricultural Revolution and the Industrial Revolution mark our wayward departure. For 99% of our existence, we consumed the so-called Paleolithic diet, notably devoid of inflammatory and “insulinotropic” foods like dairy, sugar, and grains. One of the primary victims of this shift has been the microbial ecology in our bodies – the 90% of our cells that are non-human in nature and that account for the majority of our epigenetic activities (production of nutrients including methylated folate, fatty acids, fat soluble vitamins including Vitamin D Receptor expression, detoxification, immune signaling).”
Dr Mercola on 1 October 2014 brings information on how diet sodas may impact on your gut and how it can increase your waistline circumference. The article goes on to say:
“Both artificial sweeteners and certain gut microbes have previously been linked to obesity, and artificial sweeteners may raise your risk of diabetes by disrupting your intestinal microflora.
Artificial sweeteners alter certain metabolic pathways associated with disease, and can induce gut dysbiosis and glucose intolerance in otherwise healthy people very quickly.”

This is becoming a very hot topic and one that plays a major role in all our health – if your gut is sick then you are sick and you cannot heal until your gut is healed.
Dr Mercola on 28 August 2014 brings information from University of Michigan. Dr Mercola advises:
“Your microbiome is much like a fingerprint—it’s unique to you. Some researchers have even suggested that we might belong to one of a few “microflora types,” which are similar to blood types.
Your gut microbiome activity influences your immune responses, nervous system functioning, and plays a role in the development of any number of diseases, including obesity, cancer, and multiple sclerosis.”

GreenMedia on 5 May 2014 provides a new reason why wheat and GMO’s can destroy your health. They bring information on a new study published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology titled, "Diversity of the cultivable human gut microbiome involved in gluten metabolism: isolation of microorganisms with potential interest for coeliac disease," has revealed something remarkable about the human gut bacteria (microbiome). Some of the extremely hard to digest proteins in wheat colloquially known as "gluten" (there are actually over 27,000 identified in the wheat proteome) were found metabolizable through a 94 strains of bacterial species isolated from the human gut (via fecal sampling).
This discovery is all the more interesting when you consider that, according to Alessio Fasano, the Medical Director for The University of Maryland's Center for Celiac Research, the human genome does not possess the ability to produce enzymes capable of breaking down gluten.
