In this weeks video health tip, Dr. Matthew Davis & Dr. Samir Hajariwala, directors of Crossroads Chiropractic, take a look at Parkinson’s Disease and its link to gut bacteria.
Parkinson’s Disease is diagnosed in over 50,000 Americans each year.
It is a progressive central nervous system disorder that affects movement.
Ground breaking research published in EBioMedicine found the gut microbiology of Parkinson’s Disease patients is significantly correlated with disease progression.
Compared to the healthy control group, those with Parkinson’s Disease had vastly different gut bacteria.
The research team found constipation to be an important non-motor symptom, which often is precursory to the onset of motor symptoms.
With over 80% of the immune system living in your gut, when the gut bacteria are not well or thriving harmoniously, the stage is set for chronic disease.
An unhealthy diet, environmental toxins , disease-states and stress can alter gut bacteria function.
You can make positive changes to your gut health and grow healthful microbiome by:
1. Eating a diet rich in organic fruits, vegetables, grains, beans and nuts.
2. Restricting red meat, refined carbohydrates, sugar added foods and processed foods.
3. Avoiding artificial sweeteners.
4. Regular Chiropractic adjustments to lower stress and improve your immune function.
Choosing a multi-strain, non-GMO probiotic will help populate your entire digestive system with the bacteria essential for a thriving immune system.
