What’s the relationship between our bowels and our brain.

This question has captivated many scientist and clinicians for many years, however, it would seem that there is no clear answer. The more research conducted the more complex the question becomes. The interaction between the endocrine system and the nervous system has been dubbed the ‘gut-brain axis’ and is depicted to be interacting in many regular functions and systems within a healthy body and diseases. 

There has been research conducted from a range of microbiology and neuroscience papers on the topic of the gut-brain axis and its involvement in health and disease.

There are parasites, which could very well influence your brain and gut, they are highly evolved and are highly specific mechanisms that take advantages of their hosts. One of these parasites is called Toxoplasma gondiia resourceful protozoan parasite that’s found on a global scale and can infiltrate the body of all warm-blooded mammals. 

Toxoplasma gondiiis usually indigested through the contamination of food, water or accidently through cat feces. Investigators conclude that about 60 million US alone are infected with this. This parasite can lead to toxoplasmosis, varying from mild, flu-like symptoms to the brain causing behavioural changes. An example of this would be that rats no longer recognise cats, or their smell, which in turn puts them in a deadly and risky situation. Evidently, this works in support of the parasite as it would infect it’s new host, the cat.   

New date conducted revealed the role of the gut-brain axis as part of the pathogenesis unusual disease. The by-products produced by bacterial overgrowth in the gut (propionic acid), have now been connected to the autism spectrum disorders. Bacterial overgrowth in the gut be triggered by excessive and unregulated use of antibiotics, which are now become a growing problem globally. As the youth are more exposed to antibiotics, the gastrointestinal effects of unregulated use can very well be linked to the new developing disorders.

Remember that our gut is a “second brain” and always think what you eat, how you eat, where you eat and what time you eat.

It’s not your fault if your child has Eczema and Asthma

It’s not your fault if your child has Eczema and Asthma.


Eczema, which is also called atopic dermatitis, is a very common skin problem. It may start in infancy, later in childhood, or in adulthood. Once it gets underway, it tends not to go quickly away.

This is my story – how I came across eczema.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 2.44.58 pm
My second child at age of 4 month got eczema and during the next 6 months it has got only more severe. I felt my heart breaking that my firstborn son had this disorder. I blamed myself, asking constantly “what did I do wrong?” I continued his treatment thinking that perhaps the older he got the better the medicine would react with his immune system. I have seen various doctors of modern medicine; through GP to immunologists. However, at age of 20 months, after undergoing atreatment my child got asthma – an allergic reaction to a certain chemical within a steroid cream. It was then that I stopped everything that my Doctors recommended and began researching to find some alternative means to help my child. I began studying Naturopathy, Nutritional medicine and Herbal medicine. I started understanding what eczema and asthma are and how to properly treat them without causing any reactions in the body. When I finished my degree and got my diploma, I found a solution to help him and other kids.
Now days I strongly believe and recommend that kids with disorders such as eczema, asthma and food intolerance can be treated with natural medicine. They are not only a healthier, but risk free and much safer for a growing and maturing body. Though, unlike Modern medicine, it’s a lengthier procedure, nonetheless, this procedure has more beneficial in the long run.
I invite all mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmother, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and fathers to think about what is beneficial for your child and his or her wellbeing.
Comment your thoughts and experiences whether you agree with my personal experience and opinion.
My son has improved dramatically with the use of natural medicine, as depicted in the pictures, thus I always recommend parents to use natural medicine when involved with eczema.
