[Article] How to Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome: Everything You Need to Know About This Digestive Condition : Paleo
"Medications like antibiotics and Accutane (as someone who suffered with acne) can lead to Leaky Gut. I've been eating Paleo for 2 years but my acne was still showing up and giving me trouble.

Went to GP recently and was prescribed Topzole 40mg for just two weeks to heal my gut. Acne gone. Digestion improved. Still continuing with Paleo diet (my way of buying food, cooking and eating has been become so ingrained with the lifestyle) but now I can relax a bit in social occasions (like a piece of cheese, bread or a cookie) without my skin flaring up with stomach pain."

The problem with yogurt -- a MUST-read if you eat yogurt
Drink kefir instead, it has more live, active cultures and also higher quantities of them due to the longer fermentation period.

Lifeway brand kefir is best, as the dairy comes from grass-fed cows. In addition, kefir is 99% lactose free since the bacterial cultures do a lot of the pre-digestion.

Low-fiber diet may cause irreversible depletion of gut bacteria over generations -- ScienceDaily
"The study, conducted in mice, indicates that low-fiber diets not only deplete the complex microbial ecosystems residing in every mammalian gut, but can cause an irreversible loss of diversity within those ecosystems in as few as three or four generations. Once an entire population has experienced the extinction of key bacterial species, simply "eating right" may no longer be enough to restore these lost species to the guts of individuals in that population, the study suggests. Those of us who live in advanced industrial societies may already be heading down that path."

counterintuitive = We're used to thinking of diet & exercise as the only things that matter for maintaining weight, but we're literally in a stew of chemicals & pharmaceuticals that are killing our gut bacteria and inducing our bodies to gain weight, EVEN AT THE SAME FOOD & INTAKE LEVELS of 30 years ago.

Drinking Diet Soda and Not Losing Weight? Blame Your Gut Bacteria | TakePart
"the dose of saccharin given to participants was the maximum amount permitted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration—the equivalent of a 150-pound person drinking 42 12-ounce sodas per day. “That may be ‘acceptable’ according to some set of guidelines,” Gardner wrote to The Verge in an email, “but it should be noted that realistically this is a very high dose they are using and one that wouldn’t be consumed by a typical consumer.”"

How Modern Life Depletes Our Gut Microbes : Goats and Soda : NPR
"And the take-home message of the studies is clear: Western diets and modern-day hygiene have wiped a few dozen species right out of our digestive tracts. One missing microbe helps metabolize carbohydrates. Other bygone bacteria act as prebiotics. And another communicates with our immune system." ................. short-term-thinking-unintended-consequences = Proof that everything is a double-edged sword: ""Clean drinking water is one of the most important achievements of Western culture," Walter says. "It prevents the spread of infections, but it also prevents the easy exchange of our microbiomes."" ................ I'm not sure the last paragraph sits well with me. Yes, it is technicall true, but that means more "weaklings" live and dilute the genome with their "bad" genes: ""We don't want to romanticize life in Papua New Guinea," he says. "They may have much lower incidences of allergies and autoimmune diseases. But they are actually less healthy than people in Western societies."

counterintuitive = Not counterintuitive if you've been keeping up with current literature, but for most people, this is counterintuitive: "We're learning more and more that increased use of disinfectants in the house and in schools is actually not really helpful," he said. "The microbiome in us is so complicated that attempts to have a sterile environment are doomed to failure and may actually disrupt our health."

It's not just about what we eat as... - Ancestral Health Symposium
"It's not just about what we eat as adults. It's about how our microbiome is seeded and fed from birth. '"How will you help me seed and feed my baby's microbiome?" For change to happen, it might take decades for change to happen from the top down. But I believe change can happen much quicker from the bottom up. And it could start with all expectant mothers simply asking the one extra question."" -------------------------- link to article: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/toni-harman/microbirth-documentary_b_5828266.html

Ladies: Good Bacteria In Yogurt May Be Good For Waistlines, Too : The Salt : NPR
This study seems to conflict with the previously bookmarked (2014-02-11) study on gut bacteria, but if you read carefully, you'll see that they jibe. This is because this study only looked at yogurt consumption, while the other article mentions that only people who had multiple types of fermented foods experienced a change in their gut microbiota. ........................................... "One interesting difference among the genders occurred in the gut. The men taking probiotics didn't experience any significant changes in the makeup of the microbes living in their stomachs."

Pickled cabbage may help with allergies, coughs, colds and more | Mail Online
Another score for fermented foods. But note that pickles might be carcinogenic, depending on how they were made (last few paragraphs) ........ Also read the 5 paragraphs starting with "But increasingly popular is kefir..." ................... Also important: "A study by immunologists at Spain's University of Granada - published in 2006 in the Journal of Dairy Research - looked at people who ate at least five portions of yoghurt and cheese, and three other fermented foods such as cured meats and olives, each week. When they were deprived of these for two weeks, the levels of good bacteria in their gut dropped, as did markers of a healthy immune system. After two weeks, they started eating yoghurt again, but their immunity didn't return to its original levels until they resumed eating a wide variety of fermented foods."

Are Happy Gut Bacteria Key to Weight Loss? | Mother Jones
It's super long, but this is one of the most fascinating articles. Especially when getting to the begining of page 3. ---------- Also see "Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods..." bookmarked a few days ago. -- In the part where they talk about the orange juice, I wonder if it was pulp or no-pulp juice. This is important because I'd wager it was the pulp variety, meaning it had the fiber of fruit. If it was the no-pulp variety, I'd be curious as to why the results came out this way. -- On the 1st page, they say that before passing through the birth canal, we are 100% human. After, we are 10% human, meaning that we get a lot of microbes from passing through the birth canal. I immediately thought "maybe this is what causes a lot of modern disease"... then on page 2, WHAM! Question answered when it says people who were born via C-section have higher risks of celiac disease, Type 1 Diabetes and other diseases.

Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease | True Activist
Between this article and the "gut bacteria" article bookmarked on 5/1/2013, I've learned that more focus on minerals and bacteria is important. .............. Make sure you get to the last section "Stick To The Good Salts" --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- "Dr Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems." --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- Wow! Particularly interesting: "At Wieliczka in Poland, a hospital has been carved in a salt mountain. Asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies find that breathing air in the saline underground chambers helps improve symptoms in 90 per cent of cases."
