5 Reasons To Gut Garden

5 Reasons to Gut Garden

When you plant a garden, you know you’ll need to give it some attention, especially once things start growing. When there isn’t enough rain, you’ll need to water it. Then you’ll have to start pulling weeds before they take over. Your plants will need the right nutrients if you want them to be strong and healthy.

And if you study natural farming methods like Permaculture or Korean Natural Farming, you’ll know that the key to a healthy garden is the tiny creatures living in the soil. Feed them well, balance their environment and bring in more if there aren’t enough of the right ones – and soon your garden will be bursting with life.

Your gut is no different. There’s a whole community of tiny creatures living there, too! And if your gut has been taken over by weeds (in this case, toxins and certain types of bacteria), you need a way to remove them – and replace them in a perfect environment with the life-giving bacteria your body needs. That’s what gut gardening is all about.

Here are five reasons you should embrace gut gardening, the sooner the better:

  • Modern life: There’s a delicate balance of microorganisms in your gut (known as the gut microbiome). A healthy lifestyle with the foundation of good food, the right kind of movement, clean air and water, enough time for rest and relaxation, good relationships, not too much stress, keeps everything in balance very easily.

It’s just as easy to upset this delicate balance, even when you think you are taking care of yourself. Antibiotics, painkillers, pollution, pesticides – even the ignorant use of natural parasite cleanse – all destroy the balance of aerobic bacteria (tiny oxygen-loving creatures that support everything from our immune systems to our brains) and anaerobic bacteria which should be at a ratio of approximately 4 aerobic strains, to 1 anaerobic strain.

We need as wide a variety of the correct balance of bacteria to survive, ensuring we have enough of the anaerobic guys to activate our immune system, when they overgrow, we will suffer the consequences. That’s because their by-products include toxins like ammonia and ethanol which forms a chemical cocktail designed to digest dead tissue and turn it into compost as part of the natural cycle of life. That’s a completely necessary part of the metabolic process and in moderation; our bodies know how to get rid of the poison but really need the co-enzymes and full-spectrum nutrients to rebuild and counter the degenerative force with regeneration. The fact is quite simple, having too many toxins is bad news for our health.

The anaerobic bacteria love it when you sit at a desk all day, skip meals, eat junk food, breathe polluted air or don’t get enough rest. And their all-time favourite? Stress! Stress the final straw, ensuring the microbes never has time to recover and re-balance. It sends all your systems out of balance, making it easy for the anaerobic bacteria to take over.

In case you haven’t noticed, modern life favors the anaerobes.

  • Illness and disease: Research is now clearly showing a direct link between chronic illness and an unhealthy gut microbiome. Problems like constipation, diarrhea, weight gain, headaches, acne, eczema, joint pain and other inflammatory conditions are just the warning signs, and your body crying for help.

Left unchecked, these warning signs progress to diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, cancer, TB and other life-threatening diseases.

  • Neurons: This may come as a shock, but your brain hasn’t cornered the market on neurons. They live in your gut, too. The network of nerve cells sends messages directly to the brain using something called the vagus nerve or the gut-brain axis. So if you’re struggling with learning disabilities, ADHD or brain fog, your gut might be the problem. Ditto if you just can’t focus the way you used to. And neurons aren’t the only surprise you’ll find when you start looking into the contents of your gut….
  • Happy hormones: Did you know that around 90% of our serotonin is created in the gut? It’s released by aerobic bacteria like lactobacillus – so when the anaerobes take over, we end up with a lot less serotonin and too much poison which overwhelms the elimination organs and makes us feel terrible. This affects the whole hormonal balance. Which will make you feel tired, irritable, anxious, or even depressed. Happy people have happy hormones. And happy hormones come from happy microbes.
  • Your gut won’t look after itself: In a perfect world, your gut microbiome would find a nice balance and stay there. You’d be naturally cultivating the healthy colonies of acidophilus, bifida bacteria, lactobacillus and other oxygen-loving bacteria, with just enough of the anaerobes to handle things like protein digestion. But when was the last time you looked out your window (or at the evening news) and gazed upon a perfect world? So how do we get proactive and correct the imbalance naturally?

Gut Gardening is a simple, effective way to clean out the sewer system of the body. It safely removes waste, toxins and excess chemicals that keep your whole system out of balance. Most importantly we implant ample strains of the fresh and happy guys to balance the overgrowth of bacteria that release toxins and cause inflammation with probiotics: oxygen-loving creatures that produce nutrients instead.

Gut gardening is the ultimate bio-hack. Practice it for a while and you’ll have a new and improved gut – and an antidote to modern life.
