Colorado Springs Gut Health is Important at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR

We’re 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR takes care of young and old Colorado Springs chiropractic patients alike. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR also cares for their add-on “friends”, microorganisms, and shares information about how to keep them in a a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the development or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in evidence that it influences the immune system and inflammation that often leads to bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria modified pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients with low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause of scoliosis includes the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota differed between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the large quantity of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish options for the patients to transform their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are seen in other human diseases, also, 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, especially in older people. Recent analyses reported the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Colorado Springs chiropractic patients may not often contemplate their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your Colorado Springs chiropractor that it needs attention!
