Bacterias. La revolución digestiva
Did you know that bacteria influences your emotional well being and mental health? Did you also know that your immune system depends bacteria? Are you aware that if you have a balanced and healthy diet, rich in fibre and probiotics, these same bacteria can help your immune system and give you more energy in your day to day life?
Dr. Irina Matveikov, author of the Digestive intelligence which has sold over 20,000 copies to date, explains that bacteria are a part of us and our organism, that they have the capacity to improve our physical and mental wellbeing, and that we ought to pay close attention to what goes on within our bodies down to this level.
These minuscule lifeforms are capable to repairing and reverting damages suffered by living cells in your body, as well as affect your tastes, or even guide your decision making.
Digestive Intelligence tells the fascinating story of how our digestive systems are the centre of our bodies’ second brain and how we think and live our emotions via our stomachs. Not surprising when you consider there is something equivalent to the size of a village football pitch hiding inside our bellies – that’s the incredible magnitude of our digestive systems.
Dr Matveikova answers the obvious questions: “How?” and “Why can this be so?” by explaining, in straight forward layman’s language, that the digestive system contains more than one million neurones, identical to those in the brain and is responsible for producing 90% of the body’s hormone, serotonin, the all-important hormone which makes us feel happy and full of wellbeing. It follows that, if our stomach is “out of sorts” we feel irritable and lacking in energy; and those feelings block our intellectual productivity, disorient us and completely change our thought patterns and physical processes.
