The intestinal microbes of any region of the gut can substantially influence the health state and development or progression of diseases. These microbes regulate homeostasis and metabolism, in part, through their beneficial activities on intestinal and distant histohematological barrier and permeability, immune system functions, gut motility, absorption of nutrients, and synthesis of microbial-derived beneficial bioactive molecules.

Though the gut microbiota has a huge beneficial role, it can become potentially harmful, especially under unfavorable conditions of the intestinal microenvironment, possibly resulting from unhealthy diet and nutrition, antibiotic administration, or pathogenic invasion. The harmful effects of the intestinal microbiota are due to its abnormal behavior, characterized by the presence of pathogenic microbes or a substantial reduction in the proportion of the intestinal beneficial microbes.

Another mechanism (perhaps among the five most important) of how obesity can lead to diabetes and recurrent sinus infections, articulated uniquely by CCIMHEALTH:

Excess fat –> excesses estrogen –> decreased levels of akkermansia and increased of strep –> more upper respiratory infections and more insulin resistance

–>

Long term estrogen treatment decreases akkermansia, increase Lactobacillus and strep levels https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/…/06/180619173557.htm…

Long-term estrogen therapy changes microbial activity in the gut

Long-term therapy with estrogen and bazedoxifene alters the microbial composition and activity in the gut, affecting how estrogen is metabolized, a new study in mice found.

Hey ALL!!

Check out Elaina's Instagram link to see yesterday's WellFull Wednesday breathwork video I share two different breathwork techniques for relaxation.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CLI_IrzhQCV/…

If you have an idea count follow me on IG @integrative_alchemy

Yogic Pranayama has four sections:

Basic Breakdown:
Inhalation (Puraka)
Retention Holding (Kumbhaka
Exhalation (Rechaka)
Suspension (Shunyaka)

The following 2 techniques I share with you today are based on these four stages of the breathing process. I have experienced so many cumulative positive effects!
I will be sharing with you basic counts for beginners. A maximum of 10 rounds is recommended for a single sitting on each Pranayama.

Puraka ( Prolonged Inhalation)
Exhale 2
Inhale 5

Sit in any comfortable posture with your shoulders, facial muscles relaxed. Place hands on the thighs above knees. Close your eyes, keep spine erect and chin is parallel to the ground. We will Start inhaling after a short exhalation (just to provide a lift).

The inhalation has to be smooth and no jerky movements or forceful breath throughout this Pranayama practice.

Continue inhaling till you can in this manner or until no part of the body experiences any strain. The moment strain sets in, release the effort (that's your inhalation capacity's limit).
Beginners can start with 2 rounds as exhalation and then 5 rounds as inhalation.
Continue with 10 more rounds.
Feel free to take natural breaths anytime you need.

The inhalation process is prolonged, more oxygen is ingested and made available for the body cells to be used, boosting overall health. It also helps increase the breathing lung capacity.

Kumbhaka ( Prolonged Inhalation and Retention)
Exhale 2
Inhale 4
Retain 8

Begin by exhaling for a short duration (just to provide the kick lift to the consequent inhalation) of 2 counts and immediately after start inhalation. Inhale to the count of 4 and then retain or hold to the count of 5, after which release or exhale the held up air in a smooth manner.

Kumbhaka Pranayama will establish the regulation of breath and overall respiration. It aids with concentration and intrapulmonary and intrathoracic pressure and increases lifespan. Along with increasing the lung capacity it helps reduce the strain on the circulatory system. Increased positivity and sattvic state of mind.

A list of the supposedly incurable diseases we routinely treat and have close to

A list of the supposedly incurable diseases we routinely treat and have close to a 100% success rate in doing so:

SIBO
Chronic Lyme
Fibromyalgia
IBS
Chronic fatigue
Migraines
Mast cell disorder
Food intolerance
Colitis
Lupus
Scleroderma
Metastatic cancer
Sarcoma
the list goes on…

Not due to any mystical powers- simply by stopping inflammation and reversing it at its source- the gut microbiome and endocrine system – we are able to be successful and of service to the community

Vitamin K2 is well-known for being used to maintain heart health. It has been shown to support cardiac output, which is the volume of blood pumped, per minute, by each ventricle of the heart. This output then assists the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to muscles. K2 deficiencies are also correlated with increased arterial calcification.
