Researchers now know what the Bible has revealed for thousands of years: The gut or belly contains a "second brain." Inflammation in the belly is a great disruption of the entire system, and this can affect the whole body. The following research paper reveals another reason to radically refrain from consuming foods grown with antibiotics. Not only do they contribute to "super bugs,"
and disrupt/reverse hormones, but they lead to inflammation in the belly (IBS, etc.):
"A recent review of research suggests that changes to the microorganisms (microbiota) in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may be a cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The review article is published in the American Journal of Physiology - Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology...Diet can change the makeup of bacteria in the GI tract, potentially contributing to symptoms in patients with IBS...Antibiotic use, which can disrupt gut microbiota is associated with IBS...Changes in the gut microbiota may influence the ability of the GI tract to contract to move waste through the system; and...Changes in the gut microbiota can impair communication networks between the immune, nervous and endocrine systems, predisposing people to IBS symptoms...The researchers also highlight data suggesting that emotional stress can change the shape and function of microorganisms in the GI tract..." (Food and antibiotics may change microorganisms in gut, causing IBS)
Of course, it is common knowledge that antibiotics disrupt our "belly bugs." Yet, how many people consider how antibiotics residues in their eggs, meat and dairy, are disrupting their good bugs, leading to IBS, and perhaps even emotional issues. The researchers show that our emotions can change our guts. Certainly the reverse is also true.
For IBS, IBD, etc., I would pray, and avoid all antibiotics in foods, all GMO, all pesticides, all additives with strange names, and take lots of anise, cumin, peppermint, and also things that promote good bugs. I would get extra sunshine, and eat foods that promote natural vitamin D, etc.
