The Importance of Your Gut Bacteria

If there’s one thing we learned about gut bacteria in 2016. It’s much more important than we think. Your microbiome can affect everything from your metabolism to sleep depravity and your mood.
 
 
This past year researchers from around the world have discovered the bacteria in your gut plays an important role in whether or not you’re obese or skinny. If you get migraines a lot it’s because you have more microbiomes that can breakdown nitrates in your mouth. This bacteria causes a rush of blood leading to migraines. 
 
Your microbiome can be the key to learning a lot about your body and how it reacts to environmental changes. You’re probably thinking, “this is all well and good, but what does it mean for me?” Well, gut bacteria could be used as futuristic medicine that can help alleviate depression and metabolism.
 
If you eat a healthy diet and exercise, you can really help your good gut bacteria.
 
Hope you’re feeling well,

Sinus Pressure, Headaches, and Painful Blockage OH MY!

For those of us who have sinus infections and chronic sinus pain, the treatment can often be expensive and sometimes unsuccessful. But relieving sinus pressure is something osteopathy can help with.

Read more about how Osteopathy can help with your sinuses here

You have four sinuses in your head and any one of them can become blocked which leads to a lack of drainage. By using gentle osteopathic manipulations with the bones in the face and head, your sinuses can become unblocked and function as normal. Saving you from the pain and discomfort from a sinus infection.

Sinus pressure can lead to headaches or sleep apnea. Osteopathy can help unblock those sinuses of yours and give you a clear head so when you take in that first deep breath you won’t have to worry about it being painful.

Thank you,

New food trend: eating purple foods

We are becoming more health conscience as we head into the New Year, and are not afraid of following food trends. One food trend that’s coming into fruition is eating purple food. That means more than just eggplant.

Purple corn, purple sweet potatoes, acais berries, and black rice. These foods are all chock-full of antioxidants that will fight disease and reduce inflammation.

Read about the wonders of purple food here

A good rule of thumb is to eat dark-colored fruits and vegetables. The darker the color the more antioxidants it has. And since purple food is sprouting up everywhere they shouldn’t be hard to find. It is important to have a diet that is full of fruits and vegetables. And rich and vibrant purples foods are much more nutrient-dense than your average carrot.

Have a wonderful day from your friends,
