West Palm Beach Gut Health is Important at Moses Chiropractic

We are 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 influential in the health status of our bodies, notably as we grow, age and have pain. Moses Chiropractic cares for younger and older West Palm Beach chiropractic patients alike. Moses Chiropractic also cares for their accompanying “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the progress or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in evidence that it affects the immune system and inflammation that many times precedes bone and joint diseases associated with aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria influenced pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients who experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now changes of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota differences can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and establish choices for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are seen 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 reduced activities of daily living, especially in elderly people. Recent analyses found the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) West Palm Beach chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a day to day basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your West Palm Beach chiropractor that it needs attention!
