Vancouver Gut Health is Important at Vancouver Disc Centers

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 feel pain. Vancouver Disc Centers takes care of young and old Vancouver chiropractic patients likewise. Vancouver Disc Centers also cares for their accompanying “friends”, microorganisms, and shares tips for how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the development or prevention of various diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in evidence that it affects the immune system and inflammation that often leads to 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 report 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 has an effect on musculoskeletal diseases like 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 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 set up choices for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are seen in other human diseases, too, 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 linked to reduced activities of daily living, particularly in elderly people. Recent analyses reported the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Vancouver chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a everyday basis, but research reminds doctors like your Vancouver chiropractor that it needs attention!
