Yes that is one of my oft times answers but something my wife was reading this morning summed it up.
Apparently only about 43% of us are human with the rest being an assortment of microbes living in and on us. Scientists are discovering that these guests are actually far more important than we are for our health and can affect everything from our hearts to our brains (if you can find them) . Kill off any of the colonies such as with antibiotics and the whole balance changes.
So we know how important our vagus nerve is and how that can affect our hearts so what is affecting our vagus nerve? Our gut? Our Lungs? Our Skin?
I know that some members already understand this and especially regarding gut health work to improve. Maybe western science has it all wrong .
And if you think that is all a bit deep for me sorry you are right. It won't happen again. So to end on a (nearly appropriate) joke....
An explorer was in the Amazon basin when he was overtaken by Montezuma's revenge which laid he very low. A local shamen came to him and produced a small vial of liquid into which he dipped a strip or leather telling him to chew on this and if he was not better next day to go back and see him.
Next day he was still bad so went. On explaining this the shamen looked at him sadly and said ---wait for it--- Oh you mean the thong is ended but the malady lingers on.
I'm going now.
