The Gut Microbiome and C. difficile
Researchers from Mayo Clinic have published a new study on the gut microbiome and C. difficile in the journal Science Translational Medicine: http://stm.sciencemag.org/content/10/464/eaam7019. Using a novel mouse model, the researchers found that a subset of patients with diarrhea may be susceptible to C. difficile infection as a result of deleterious changes in their gut bacteria and increased availability of amino acids, the favored food source for the pathogen C. difficile. The researchers also found that fecal microbiota transplant or dietary restriction can decrease amino acids availability and prevent C. difficile infection.

Modulating the Gut Microbiome – the Role of Probiotics and Prebiotics
The human intestinal microbiota functions as an organ and is critical for immune and gastrointestinal system maturation, colonization resistance, modulation of immune responses, and nutritional needs. A balanced, diverse microbiota is essential for health. There are disorders in which the beneficial use of probiotics is documented including antibiotic-associated diarrhea, C. difficile-associated diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease, dysbiosis, urinary tract infections, allergies, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and lactose intolerance. As a complementary therapy, prebiotics increase the numbers and/or activities of healthful gut microbiota and support populations of healthful genera that are not available as probiotics. This presentation will provide the knowledge and tools needed to effectively use prebiotics and probiotics to enhance health. Learning objectives: 1. Understand the beneficial effects of the gastrointestinal microbiota on the development and function of the immune, gastrointestinal, and other organ systems, as well as the adverse effects that can occur secondary to microbiome disruption 2. Appreciate the mechanisms by which probiotics may confer benefit and the health conditions for which evidence exists to support their use 3. Learn the safety profile and potential risks of probiotic preparations and how to effectively select and dose probiotic formulas ----------------------------------------------------------------- Presented by Stephen Olmstead, MDAviva Romm, MD Stephen Olmstead, MD, graduated from the University of New Mexico with distinction in biology and chemistry.

The Gut-Brain Connection
Duke University researcher Diego Bohorquez and colleagues have identified the neural circuitry that connects the gut with the brain. This pathway is spanned by a single synapse, capable of relaying a signal from gut to brain in 100 milliseconds. This newly discovered pathway is probably exploited by pathogens, and will almost certainly lead to new therapies.

Gut reactions: host microbiome interactions in the intestine in health and disease
Gut reactions: host microbiome interactions in the intestine in health and disease Air date: Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 01:00:44 Description: NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The gastrointestinal tract is home to a large number and vast array of bacteria that play an important role in nutrition, immune-system development, and host defense. In inflammatory bowel disease there is a breakdown in this mutualistic relationship resulting in aberrant inflammatory responses to intestinal bacteria. Studies in model systems indicate that intestinal homeostasis is an active process involving a delicate balance between effector and immune suppressive pathways. For her presentation, Dr. Powrie will discuss bacterial pathways that promote intestinal homeostasis and host defense, and how these may be harnessed therapeutically.

How The Gut Microbiota Affects Our Health with Dr. Erica & Dr. Justin Sonnenburg
Dr. Justin Sonnenburg is an associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford and Dr. Erica Sonnenburg is a senior research scientist in the Sonnenburg lab where they the research many aspects the interaction between diet with the 100 trillion or so bacteria in the gut (specifically the colon) and how this impacts the health of the host (which in this case is a laboratory research mouse). In this episode we discuss the pivotal role fiber plays in fueling good bacteria in the gut to produce compounds that regulate the immune system including increasing the number of T regulatory cells, which are specialized types of immune cells that keep the immune system in check and prevent autoimmune responses, and how these compounds also increase other types of blood cells in the body in a process known as hematopoiesis. We also talk about how the lack of fiber in the typical American diet actually starves these good bacteria of their food. This has an effect not only on the immune system and autoimmune diseases but also results in the breakdown of the gut barrier, which leads to widespread inflammation and inflammatory diseases. Lastly, in this podcast, Dr. Erica Sonnenburg talks about how C-sections, have a negative effect on the infant’s gut due to the lack of exposure to bacteria present in the mother’s vaginal canal, and how the use of formula deprives the infant not only from the good bacteria present in Mom’s gut but also from special carbohydrates in breast milk that are good for the infant gut flora known as HMOs or human milk oligosaccharides. ▶︎ Get the show notes! https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/the-sonnenburgs Links related to the Sonnenburgs: ▶︎ http://sonnenburglab.stanford.edu/ ▶︎ http://www.facebook.com/thegoodgut ▶︎http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594206287/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1594206287&linkCode=as2&tag=foun06-20&linkId=IOKAGDTRCL47XQN6 Links related to FoundMyFitness: ▶︎ Join my weekly newsletter: http://www.foundmyfitness.com/?sendme=nutrigenomics ▶︎ Crowdfund more videos: http://www.patreon.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe to the podcast: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foundmyfitness/id818198322 ▶︎ Twitter: http://twitter.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/foundmyfitness

How Nutrition Can Shape Gut Microbiota  - Alessio Fasano (March 2016)
How Nutrition Can Shape Gut Microbiota and its Implications in the Autoimmunity Epidemics: The Lesson Learned From Celiac Disease - presented by Alesso Fasano, MD on March 17, 2016 Alessio Fasano, MD, is the W. Allan Walker Chair of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children (MGHfC). His visionary research, which established the rate of celiac disease at one in 133 people, led to the awareness of celiac disease as a growing public health problem in the United States. Dr. Fasano founded the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment in 1996, where he treats adults and children for gluten-related disorders. Dr. Fasano is also Director of the Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center (MIBRC) at MGHfC. In 2000, he and his team discovered the protein zonulin, opening up the door to a new way of looking at the function of intestinal permeability, not only as it affects the gut, but also what role it plays in both inflammation and autoimmunity throughout the body. Current research directed by Dr. Fasano encompasses both basic science focused on bacterial pathogenesis, the gut microbiome and intestinal mucosal biology, as well as translational science focused on interventional clinical trials in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases with an ultimate goal of prevention. A passionate advocate for collaboration in research and clinical work, Dr. Fasano recently authored Gluten Freedom to provide patients, healthcare providers and general readers an evidence-based yet entertaining book to dispel confusion about gluten and how it can affect your health. Dr. Fasano is widely sought after as an expert in celiac disease, intestinal permeability and autoimmune disorders and has been featured in media outlets around the world, including National Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Daily Mail, Elle, TIME and other online and media outlets.

The Gut Microbiota and Multiple Sclerosis | Dr. Jens Walter | MS Society of Canada
As humans, our intestinal tract is colonized by a dense and species-rich community of microorganisms (the gut microbiota) that is of paramount importance to our health. Recent clinical and experimental studies clearly indicate an important role of these communities in the etiology of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases. Dr. Walter discussed how the gut microbiota is implicated in the pathology of MS and how ‘microbial involvement’ provides explanations for the impact of the environmental risk factors of MS. He presented some of the microbiome-targeted treatment options that are currently discussed and researched in the field. Dr. Jens Walter is an associate professor and Campus Alberta Innovation Program Chair for nutrition, microbes and gastrointestinal health at the University of Alberta. After receiving his doctoral degree from the University of Hohenheim in Germany, he performed postdoctoral research into genetic and metagenomic approaches to study gut microbial ecology at the University of Otago in New Zealand. In 2006, Dr. Walter accepted a tenure track position at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to work as a molecular microbial ecologist. He received tenure in 2012 before moving to the University of Alberta, Canada in 2014. Dr. Walter’s research focuses on the investigation of ecological and evolutionary processes that shape host-microbial symbioses in the human gut, and the application of these scientific concepts to develop microbiome-targeted nutritional and therapeutic strategies to improve human health. ------------------------------------------------------- To learn more about the MS Society of Canada, please visit our website or contact one of our MS Navigators: Website: https://mssociety.ca/ Phone: 1-844-859-6789 Email: [email protected]

How To Improve Your Gut Bacteria 10 Ways To Enhance Your Gut Microbiota
How To Improve Your Gut Bacteria 10 Ways To Enhance Your Gut Microbiota. Your body is full of trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi. They are collectively known as the microbiome. While some bacteria are associated with disease, others are actually extremely important for your immune system, heart, weight and many other aspects of health. The gut flora make up a world of microorganisms that populate our gastrointestinal tract. It is estimated there are about 100 trillion of these microorganisms, called microbes. They are predominately made up of various strains of bacteria, but there are also some fungi and protozoa as well. Our relationship with the gut flora is considered to be one of mutual benefit. The gut flora may also be referred to as the microbiome, microbiota or microflora. Gut Bacteria and Diet Although the research in this area is quite preliminary, the following dietary changes may be of help in keeping your friendly gut bacteria happy and certainly will do you no harm: Decrease sugar and refined carbohydrates. These food components interact with gut bacteria through a process of fermentation and can contribute to excessive symptoms of gas and bloating. Get to know prebiotics. As you hear more and more about gut bacteria, you will also be hearing more and more about prebiotics. Prebiotics are ingredients in foods that encourage the growth of beneficial flora. Prebiotics are primarily found in vegetables and fruits that are high in soluble and insoluble fiber. Two other buzzwords are "fructooligosaccharides" and "inulins;" foods with these prebiotic components seem to be especially gut flora-friendly.

Crohns Disease & Prebiotics
https://www.prebiotin.com If you are suffering from Crohn's disease and dysbiosis (an imbalance of gut bacteria), it is important that you eat mostly foods high in insoluble fiber and prebiotics to combat the harmful effects of bad bacteria in your colon. By consuming prebiotic foods and taking prebiotic supplements, you will be helping the good bacteria in your gut reproduce exponentially to enrich your colon wall. Discover the many benefits of prebiotics if you have Crohn's disease by watching this video by gastroenterologist Dr. Frank W. Jackson. Symptoms and Causes of Crohn's Disease Crohn’s disease is a chronic condition included in the spectrum of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs). Crohn's disease primarily affects the ileum — the end of your small intestine — and the beginning of your colon — the large intestine. However, Crohn's disease may also affect other areas of your GI tract. (Note: Ulcerative colitis, which presents symptoms similar to Crohn's, only affects the colon). According to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America website, symptoms of Crohn's disease varies among individuals but typically involve: • Bleeding from the rectum • Abdominal pain and cramping • Persistent diarrhea that does not respond to medication • Constipation that sometimes leads to bowel obstruction • Urgent need to have a bowel movement • Fever, fatigue, appetite loss and rapid weight loss In addition to genetics and environmental factors, dysbiosis is highly suspected of aggravating Crohn's disease. This serious imbalance of gut bacteria develops when you have more bad bacteria in your gut than good bacteria. Since 70 percent of your immune system is supported by your colon and small intestine, this imbalance impedes the normal functioning of your immune system. Causes of dysbiosis include stress, illness, undetected food allergies and overuse of antibiotics. While antibiotics are useful for fighting infections, these drugs also kill the good bacteria necessary for optimal gut and immune system health. More often than not, antibiotics are not necessary to overcome less invasive infections. A healthy immune system sustained by an optimal balance of gut bacteria may be all that is necessary to defeat an illness. Food Additives and Crohn's Disease Food additives, especially toxic substances called emulsifiers, destroy the protective mucous layer within the colon and small intestine. Emulsifiers are chemical additives designed to extend the shelf life of perishable foods and improve the texture of food. Common emulsifiers found in foods include xanthan gum, guar gum, polysorbate 80, lecithin, hypromellose and carboxymethyl cellulose. Studies have shown that emulsifiers disturb the balance of bacteria in your gut and produce the same kind of intestinal inflammation associated with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and metabolic syndrome. To avoid consuming emulsifiers, always read the ingredient label. Dr. Jackson says that if you find an ingredient you've never heard of listed on a food label, it is probably an emulsifier. Relieve Symptoms of Crohn's Disease With Prebiotics Prebiotics are non-digestible fiber compounds that move through your colon and support the growth and activity of good bacteria in your intestines. Raw chicory, dandelion greens, raw garlic, onions, wheat bran and raw asparagus are some of the foods that contain prebiotics. Prebiotics are not only necessary for good gut health, but probiotics also need them to sustain their activity as well. In addition, research has demonstrated that prebiotics increase production of short-chain fatty acids essential for colon health. Exhibiting strong, anti-inflammatory properties, short-chain fatty acids are your colon's primary source of energy and enrich colon functioning.

12 Natural Leaky Gut Syndrome Cures to Treat & Heal the Body
12 Natural Leaky Gut Syndrome Cures to Treat & Heal the Body Leaky Gut Syndrome is a health condition in which there is damage to your intestinal lining, allowing toxins to enter your bloodstream. Leaky Gut compromises your digestive system and overall health, leading to unpleasant symptoms such as pain, fatigue, digestive issues, brain fog, and all sorts of other health complications, such as mental health conditions, autoimmune disease, inflamed bowels, and cancer. In a nutshell: your digestive system is VITAL for your overall health. It is within your digestive system where most of the nutrients you take in are absorbed. In addition, your upper gastrointestinal tract contains most of your entire body’s immune system cells – roughly 80%! The digestive system also interacts with hundreds of hormones in the body by way of beneficial bacteria. What is Leaky Gut and Why Is It So Common? Leaky gut is a specific condition that occurs when microscopic holes form in the digestive tract. Here is how it works. The intestines are protected by a layer of specialized cells. These cells are linked together by tight junction, or TJ, proteins. TJ proteins on the inner walls of your intestines are the “gatekeepers.” They decide what is allowed to pass between the digestive system and the bloodstream. In healthy intestinal environments, dozens of different kinds of TJ proteins help to monitor what goes into the bloodstream from the digestive system, such as vital nutrients, and what stays out, such as toxins that need to be excreted.1 When a person has leaky gut, tiny particles that should not get into the bloodstream are able to pass through. This process inevitably leads to acute inflammation. Adding fuel to the fire, the immune system goes into overdrive in the presence of pathogens in the bloodstream. This can lead to immune overstimulation, or autoimmunity. Leaky gut symptoms may be similar to other gut-related conditions and can include: • Gas • Bloating • Stomach cramping • Food sensitivities • Headaches + minor aches and pains • Mood swings and low energy WHAT CAUSES LEAKY GUT SYNDROME? The four main cause of Leaky Gut include: An unhealthy diet Toxic overload Chronic Stress Bacterial imbalance Unfortunately, there’s no standard diagnostic test for detecting leaky gut syndrome. The most effective way to determine whether you have leaky gut is to eliminate (as best you can) all of the contributing factors you have the most control over – gut-disrupting foods, chronic stress, and toxins – and monitor your symptoms to see if they improve. LIFESTYLE TREATMENTS FOR LEAKY GUT Lifestyle treatments for Leaky Gut Include the 4 R-s: REMOVE foods and other substances that can damage your gut REPLACE them with healthy foods REPAIR with vitamins and supplements REBALANCE with probiotics How to Restore a Healthy Gut, Naturally Likely the best way to heal a leaky gut is to go back to eating and living the way our ancient ancestors did, and spend your days foraging for food in the form of roots, leaves, berries, bark and the occasional egg or wild animal you manage to take down. This is what our digestive systems were designed to thrive on, and they haven’t changed much (if at all) in the last few hundred thousand years. 1. Apply Herbal and Natural Therapy Taking herbal and natural supplements is an easy and effective way to support your gut health and accelerate your recovery*. Essentially, you’re offering your gut the beneficial plant chemicals it was designed to rely on hundreds of thousands of years ago – and that design hasn’t changed. 2. Not Enough Probiotics Probiotics come from the foods we eat. upping probiotic content in your gut either through supplementation or consuming probiotic-rich foods can help with allergy disorders, liver conditions, and even the common cold.11 examples of probiotics food include some cheeses, yoghurt And pickles 3. Not Enough Prebiotics Once probiotic microorganisms are doing their thing to help your body, they have to eat to survive as well. Nutrients for probiotic bacteria come in the form of certain kinds of fibers called “prebiotics”.13 Vegetables containing these fibers include: • Artichokes • Asparagus • Garlic • Onions • Leeks • Dandelion greens 4. Non-Stop Stress Some stress comes with the territory of being human, and it can be a good thing: Occasional stress in the face of a serious threat slows the movement of food materials through the gut so the body can put its energy and resources elsewhere. It’s the old fight-or-flight response — a biological throwback to when we had to evade the occasional tiger in the wild.

The microbiota as instructor and arbiter of immune responses in health and disease
The microbiota as instructor and arbiter of immune responses in health and disease Air date: Wednesday, February 22, 2017, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 01:07:59 Description: NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The vertebrate intestinal tract is colonized by hundreds of species of bacteria that outnumber the total cells in the host, yet must be compartmentalized and tolerated to prevent invasive growth and harmful inflammatory responses. A key function of commensal microbes is to contribute to the adaptive immune repertoire and to diverse lymphocyte effector functions. T cell responses against non-invasive commensals contribute to shaping the repertoire of effector/memory and regulatory T cells. How T cells elicited by commensal bacteria can influence autoimmunity is a central question that remains unsolved. The Littman Lab studies the antigenic specificity of microbiota-induced T cells and the mechanisms by which their functions are acquired upon interaction with distinct commensal species. His lab finds that Th17 cells, which are central to mucosal barrier defense but also participate in autoimmune disease, are induced by specific constituents of the microbiota, and acquire effector function only after additional exposure to endogenous adjuvants, such as the serum amyloid A proteins. The lab's studies in mice are not only relevant for human autoimmune diseases, many of which have Th17 cell involvement, but may also provide insights into how commensal microbe-specific T cell responses could be harnessed for mucosal vaccination and cancer immunotherapy.

These include celiac disease, wheat allergy and the "new kid on the block" of the spectrum of gluten-related disorders—gluten sensitivity. The autoimmune disorder of celiac disease is the most widely studied condition on the spectrum. It affects approximately 1 in 133 people, a rate that has doubled in the U.S. every 15 years over the past 35 years. An estimate from the Center for Celiac Research puts gluten sensitivity at 6% of the U.S. population. With current interest in the human genome and microbiome, research is leading scientists to examine the relationship between the intestinal microbiome and gluten-related disorders. Currently the gluten-free diet is the only available treatment for gluten-related disorders. World-renowned pediatric gastroenterologist, research scientist, and entreprenuer Alessio Fasano, M.D., founded the Center for Celiac Research in 1996. The Center offers state-of-the art research, clinical expertise and teaching for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, wheat allergy, and gluten sensitivity. Trained in Naples, Italy, as a pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Fasano was recruited to the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1993 and founded its Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition. Puzzled by the absence of children exhibiting symptoms of celiac disease in the clinic, he resolved to uncover the mystery of missing American "celiacs." His perseverance in the face of skepticism about celiac disease in the U.S. eventually led to his publication of the groundbreaking study in 2003 that established the rate of the autoimmune disorder at one in 133 Americans. In early 2013, Dr. Fasano was appointed Division Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. He brought the Center for Celiac Research to Boston, where he heads the Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center, based in Charlestown, and is Associate Chief for Basic, Clinical and Translational Research for the Department of Pediatrics at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. He is a Visiting Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

It takes guts to get arthritis: The spondyloarthritis - Crohn’s Disease spectrum – a new paradigm?
In recent years, a new paradigm has developed in perceptions around ankylosing spondylitis (AS) such that many now see this disease as part of a spectrum of spondyloarthropathies that also includes Crohn’s disease. These two conditions not only demonstrate many common phenotypic characteristics, but also share a common genetic risk. Both may be triggered by dysbiosis within the intestinal microbiota. Gut inflammation is a frequent sub-clinical manifestation of AS and arthritis a common extra-intestinal manifestation of Crohn’s disease. This talk will take the form of two diametrically opposed, vituperative duelling specialists each with their own narrow and transparent agendas attempting to take sole ownership for this new dialectic. Presented by Associate Professor Simon Stebbings | Consultant Physician in Rheumatology https://www.otago.ac.nz/dsm/people/expertise/profile/?id=775 Associate Professor Michael Schultz | Head of Department at the Department of Medicine; Director of the Gut Health Network https://www.otago.ac.nz/dsm/people/expertise/profile/?id=793

A microbial signature for Crohn's disease
Read the full paper here: http://gut.bmj.com/content/66/5/813 To cite: Pascal V, Pozuelo M, Borruel N et al. Gut 2017:;66:813-822. Objective A decade of microbiome studies has linked IBD to an alteration in the gut microbial community of genetically predisposed subjects. However, existing profiles of gut microbiome dysbiosis in adult IBD patients are inconsistent among published studies, and did not allow the identification of microbial signatures for CD and UC. Here, we aimed to compare the faecal microbiome of CD with patients having UC and with non-IBD subjects in a longitudinal study. Conclusions Although UC and CD share many epidemiologic, immunologic, therapeutic and clinical features, our results showed that they are two distinct subtypes of IBD at the microbiome level. For the first time, we are proposing microbiomarkers to discriminate between CD and non-CD independently of geographical regions.

Dining out with friends: the intestinal microbiome | Professor Fiona Powrie FRS FMedSci
In this lecture, Professor Fiona Powrie reviews key adaptations that allow the intestine to remain stable alongside its bacterial 'friends', and discusses how understanding these relationships may provide new treatments for chronic inflammatory diseases. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is home to trillions of bacteria that help with nutrition, immune system development and defending the body. In a health body, the host body and the bacteria live alongside each other in a carefully maintained state of symbiotic homeostasis. In inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), however, there is a breakdown in the healthy dialogue between our body and our microbial residents resulting in chronic immune attack in the bowel. Professor Fiona Powrie FRS FMedSci is head of the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology at the University of Oxford. The 2014 Jean Shanks Lecture was delivered at the Academy of Medical Sciences AGM.

Bruce Ames: Vitamin and Mineral Inadequacy Accelerates Aging-associated Disease
Most of the world's population, even in developed countries, has inadequate intake of one or more of the ~30 essential vitamins and minerals, mostly used as cofactors by the proteins/ enzymes of metabolism. A varied and balanced diet should provide enough vitamins and minerals; an unbalanced diet with too much refined food provides calories, but not enough vitamins and minerals. Triage theory posits that, as a result of recurrent shortages of vitamins and minerals during evolution, natural selection developed a strategic rationing response to moderate shortages so that the scarce vitamins and minerals are preferentially retained by vitamin and mineral dependent proteins that are essential for short-term survival and reproduction. In contrast, proteins needed for long-term health, which defend against the diseases associated with aging, are starved for the vitamins and minerals and thus are disabled. Moreover, since the damage from moderate deficiency is insidious, its importance for long-term health is not clinically apparent. Strong support for triage theory comes from the analyses of published data on proteins dependent on vitamin K and on selenium. Both of these vitamins and minerals have built into metabolism a triage-like trade- off between short-term survival and long-term health; each uses a different mechanism to accomplish this end. Mechanistic, genetic, and epidemiological evidence suggests that this metabolic trade-off accelerates aging-associated diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, immune dysfunction, and cognitive decline. Dr. Bruce Ames is a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, and a Senior Scientist at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and he was on their Commission on Life Sciences. Dr. Ames served on the board of directors of the National Cancer Institute, the National Cancer Advisory Board, from 1976 to 1982.

Crohn's Disease and Diet: Specific Nutrients and Supplements
For more details, click here: http://www.dietvsdisease.org/crohns-disease-diet-treatment/ To subscribe to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/DietvsDiseaseOrg?sub_confirmation=1 Although diet may not be a direct cause of Crohn’s disease, it plays a critical role in managing symptoms as well as preventing recurrence. There are some supplements that may help, and some nutrients you ought to be aware of. Crohn's Disease and Diet: Specific Nutrients and Supplements In a previous video I looked at what Crohn's is and where the research is at for particular eating patterns, in this one I'm looking at nutrients and supplements. The role of specific nutrients in Crohn’s disease treatment is a busy area of research. Studies consistently show a strong link between high fibre intake and decreased risk of Crohn’s disease. [It seems that] An intake of more than 22 grams of fibre per day is ideal, particularly from fruits, vegetables and legumes. The potential mechanism behind this benefit is not well-understood, however many researchers speculate that butyrate is largely responsible. This is the by-product produced when certain types of fibre are fermented in the gut (prebiotics). STUDY:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25671414 Currently the average US adult consumes only 16 grams of fibre per day, with only 22% from vegetables and 11% from fruit. So immediately we can see that increased fiber intake from fruits and vegetables would go a long way to improving health. SNIPPET: "Mean (average) fiber intake for adults 19-50 years was 16.1 (±0.2) g/day and for adults 51+ was 16.1 (±0.2) g/day." Vitamin D deficiency has emerged as a risk factor for Crohn’s disease as well. Animal models suggest it may improve intestinal barrier function and assist healing of the intestinal wall after damage. Now let's look at some supplements because there is a range of new products now available to help treat Crohn’s disease. Only a select few are backed by any scientific evidence though. There is now good reason to believe an imbalance in gut bacteria contributes to Crohn’s disease. Some evidence suggests probiotic use may therefore be helpful. [Probiotics are bacteria we eat specifically for health benefits.] However, the majority of good studies so far are on animals or in test tubes. If probiotics are indeed useful, the actual beneficial bacterial strains are unknown. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17688660 There was one promising human study of 10 subjects with Crohn’s disease (not in hospital) that previously failed to achieve remission on medications. They were given a combination treatment of probiotics (mainly comprised of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli and prebiotics (which was in this case psyllium fiber. This was given each day for 13 months on average. Results found seven subjects had improved clinical symptoms of diarrhea and abdominal pain. Two of those were able to come off their prednisolone therapy, while 4 could decrease their dosage. Given that side effects are very rare and there is beneficial potential, we cannot yet say probiotics are useless. But we are just guessing about which types, and how much. That brings us to prebiotics, which are types of fiber that “feed” your gut bacteria. Research suggests that two forms of prebiotic – inulin and oligofructose – encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. [namely lactobacilli and bifidobacteria] This is associated with reduced mucosal inflammation in IBD. [at least in animal studies.] Fermentation of prebiotics in the gut also produces short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate. Butyrate has anti-inflammatory effects in the gut, with supplements resulting in clinical improvement in 9 of 12 Crohn’s disease patients. [So early evidence indicates prebiotics may help, but we have a lot to learn still]. Lastly I think it's worth mentioning curcumin supplementation, which is the active ingredient in the spice tumeric. It appears to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can influence health. STUDIES: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17101300/, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16240238/ So in summary, eat a variety of vegetables and fruit that you tolerate- This is to ensure you get at least 22 grams of prebiotic fibre each day. Supplement vitamin D if you are deficient. Curcumin supplementation may also be a good option, same with probiotics although we don't know what strains or what amount.

Gut Microbes Linked to Weight and Metabolic Syndrome
Scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine published in the August 2012 issue of PLoS a study showing that there are at least 26 species of bacteria linked to obesity and the metabolic syndrome traits such as body mass, triglycerides, cholesterol, glucose levels, CRP, insulin resistance, and high blood pressure. We know that many factors alter the makeup of the gut ecosystem such as diet, inflammatory conditions, infections, maldigestion, stress, antibiotics, many drugs such as steroids, NSAIDs, and birth control pills, exposure to environmental toxins, and immune dysfunction. It is vital that the gut ecosystem be protected if we're going to enjoy good health.

Gut Flora Predicts Heart Attack and Stroke
TMAO, a byproduct of intestinal bacteria—aka "gut flora"— is found to contribute to heart disease. Cleveland Clinic researcher Stanley Hazen, MD, conducted a study which shows this could lead to an accurate screening tool for predicting future heart problems in people not traditionally considered at risk. ➨ Visit Cleveland Clinic: http://bit.ly/XlxDfr ➨ Visit Health Hub from Cleveland Clinic: http://bit.ly/VBQ3nW ➨ Subscribe to our YouTube Channel: http://bit.ly/W0bJ0y ➨ Like Cleveland Clinic on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/WMFkul ➨ Follow Cleveland Clinic on Twitter: http://bit.ly/Uua1Gs ➨ Follow Cleveland Clinic on Pinterest: http://bit.ly/11QqS3A Editor's Note: Cleveland Clinic has a licensing agreement with a diagnostic company to develop and commercialize a blood test for cardiovascular disease based upon the gut flora metabolite, TMAO.

Dr. Rau:  Treating Tick-Borne and Chronic Infectious Diseases with Biological Medicine
http://www.biologicalmedicinenetwork.org Lyme and tick-borne diseases are an escalating public health issue that may be on track to be the next epidemic. In the last 5-8 years, we have seen an enormous increase of Lyme Disease patients, especially on the East Coast. What aggravates this disease is that the symptoms expressed vary from person to person and the lab diagnoses are too often not accurate. Dr. Thomas Rau and the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland have successfully treated many chronic and sick Lyme patients with biological medicine. Interestingly, all severely ill Lyme patients had co-infections and other disabling factors, which were the underlying causes for their severe disorder. These underlying causes include: - Heavy metal and other toxic loads, mainly neuro-toxins - Severe dysbiosis and intestinal weaknesses, which leads to a break down in the immune system - Chronic viral loads, mainly neurotropic slow acting viruses and remainders of immunizations - Side-effects from long term antibiotics, including the presence of cell wall deficient bacteria, which themselves cause chronic problems - Genetic lack of detoxification and/or anti-oxidant quelling capacity - Severe lack of certain amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids, due to poor nutrition or metabolic weaknesses. Dr. Rau has treated many patients, all without antibiotics, but with detoxification protocols, like up building the immune system, inner organs and hormonal and adrenal system, finding and eliminating neuro- and lymphtropic viruses and integrating Live Cell Therapies, exclusively used at the Paracelsus Clinic in Lustmühle, Switzerland. The success rate of the treatment has been very high if done very intensively for 2-4 weeks and continued at home for several months. It is a very individualized program which always has to integrate a combination of different treatment modalities.

Maureen Hanson - Keynote Speaker The Gut Microbiome in Myalgic EncephalomyelitisChronic..
Watch this webinar on Labroots at : http://www.labroots.com/virtual-event/microbiology-immunology-2016 ME/CFS is a debilitating disease with a controversial history and multiple names. The Institute of Medicine recently recommended renaming the disease “Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease (SEID),” based on its hallmark symptom, an inability to increase physical and mental activity beyond a steady-state level without negative consequences. Patients report a profound lack of energy, not an ordinary type of fatigue. Characteristics of the disease will be reviewed along with current information regarding diagnostic criteria. Many ME/CFS/SEID patients report gastrointestinal as well as inflammatory symptoms. Because the gut microbiome has been observed to be abnormal in inflammatory and metabolic diseases, we examined the bacterial microbiome and blood markers of microbial translocation in a cohort of patients and controls. This presentation will describe our findings and their relevance to the current view of the disease and its underlying pathophysiology. Learning objective 1: Understand the current diagnostic and clinical criteria for ME/CFS/SEID Learning objective 2: Understand why levels of lipopolysaccharide and certain proteins are thought to be related to bacterial translocation and inflammation Learning objective 3: Learn how the gut microbiomes of ME/CFS/SEID patients differ from those of healthy controls

Diet and Gut Microbiota - mSystems
Dietary modification has long been used empirically to modify symptoms in inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and a diverse group of diseases with gastrointestinal symptoms. There is both anecdotal and scientific evidence to suggest that individuals respond quite differently to similar dietary changes, and the highly individualized nature of the gut microbiota makes it a prime candidate for these differences. To overcome the typical confounding factors of human dietary interventions, here we employ ex-germfree mice colonized by microbiotas of three different humans to test how different microbiotas respond to a defined change in carbohydrate content of diet by measuring changes in microbiota composition and function using marker gene-based next-generation sequencing and metabolomics. Our findings suggest that the same diet has very different effects on each microbiota’s membership and function, which may in turn explain interindividual differences in response to a dietary ingredient.

H.Pylori and Autoimmune Thyroid Disease
www.DrHagmeyer.com Learn more about the connection between an infection of H.pylori and Autoimmune Thyroid disease. When most people think about having thyroid disease, Hashimotos or Graves Disease they rarely think about the connection or link to between their thyroid disease and bacteria or stealth infections as a culprit. One of the most common symptoms of Thyroid disease after things like fatigue, weight gain, hair loss and depression….- are symptoms related to the gut. These symptoms may be bloating, constipation, diarrhea, Acid reflux or they may be more serious such as stomach ulcers or stomach cancer. One of the most common culprits and one that I will be talking about today is H.Pylori. H. pylori infection is believed to be one of the top stealth infections that affect people with Hashimoto’s and Graves’ disease and this bacteria poses a serious threat and obstacle when it comes to stabilizing, lowering TPO antibodies and putting your body into remission.

Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease-  Dr. Dale Bredesen, MD
"Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease" is a presentation by Dr. Dale Bredesen, MD that took place at Silicon Valley Health Institute on November 17, 2016. Alzheimer’s disease affects 5 million people in the U.S. and about 30 million worldwide. Until now, the prognosis seemed poor for this population Dale Bredesen MD, the founding president of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, has developed a program which has had success in reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease. His research model addresses several possible disease components at once (diet, exercise, etc.) rather than testing one drug at a time to rule out the effects from other drugs or interventions. Bredesen says that studying one drug at a time is like patching one hole in a roof that has dozens of holes. Dr. Bredesen sees Alzheimer’s disease,- as an imbalance rather than a toxicity resulting in amyloid beta plaques which block nerve cell signaling and lead to memory loss. Amyloid beta, he and others say, also has a normal function in the brain, performing important roles, such as helping the brain’s plasticity – how nerve cells signal to make and store memories and delete unneeded ones. After intense testing of a patient, Dr. Bredesen determines which factors have gone awry, and personalizes a program to correct the issues. Among the measures he recommends: - A diet that eliminates processed foods and other unhealthy ingredients, and boosts fruits, vegetables and healthy fish - Stress reduction with meditation, yoga, music or other means - Eight hours of sleep a night - At least 30 minutes of exercise four to six times a week - Very good oral hygiene - Improvement of gut health with probiotics and prebiotics - Fasting for 12 hours between dinner and breakfast, and three hours or more between dinner and bedtime, to keep insulin levels low Published in the September Journal Aging, he did a study on ten patients. Nine of the 10 patients improved. Six who had been on leave from work or were struggling with work due to memory loss and other Alzheimer’s-related issues returned or improved their work performance. The one patient who did not improve was in the late stages of Alzheimer’s Disease. One 67 year old patient is still doing well after three years. She had a demanding job when her memory issues surfaced. She couldn’t finish work reports properly and would even forget her longtime pets’ names. Within months of beginning the program, she was doing well at work. “Four times she went off the program and each time she got worse. When she went back on, she went back to normal.” Dr. Bredesen hopes to start a clinical trial this year. He also hopes to launch a program where interested patients could learn how to follow it during a one-week intensive stay, returning periodically for progress checks and program tweaks. The Alzheimer’s Association cautions against Alzheimer’s patients trying to self-start Bredesen’s program. That’s despite the fact that the Association recommends some of the program features for better brain health.
