Largo Gut Health is Important at Hollstrom & Associates Inc

We’re one big, happy family. Who are “we”? Our bodies and the billions of microorganisms living with us in harmony…most of the time! The microorganisms in the gut particularly are quite important to the health status of our bodies, notably as we grow, age and feel pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc cares for young and old Largo chiropractic patients alike. Hollstrom & Associates Inc also cares for their add-on “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the development or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in support that it stimulates the immune system and inflammation that often precedes bone and joint diseases associated with aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria affected pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients who experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now modifications of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are present in other human diseases, as well, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases associated with decreased activities of daily living, particularly in elderly people. Recent analyses found the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Largo chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Largo chiropractor that it needs attention!
