After recently discovering a theory that Parkinson’s disease might be caused by an infection MAP (Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis) I have started to investigate with in a bit more depth the incredibly interesting and complicated world of gut health. After all – what should a regular person do to have good gut health? Can we all try the same best practices? What is the evidence behind it all?
Well, I have found that the answer appears to not be so simple. Since the microbiome – the ecosystem of trillions of bacteria living in our digestive system – is highly complex and interactive, it appears that there is no one-answer-fits-all as each of us likely has different situations happening inside us.
What I have discovered is that most of the ways to try and modify our gut bacteria appear to be possible with mostly regular food.
