Feeding The Hungry Microbiome

We live in a world of unfolding epidemics; Autism, ADD, asthma, allergies, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, diabetes, coeliac issues … these conditions overlap with each other…and are related by similar underlying causes.” says Dr. Campbell-McBride. In her Cambridge UK clinic she sees hundreds of children labeled with different disease but presenting with similar issues of malnourishment, toxicity and poor digestive health. The health of our digestive system directly impacts our whole body, and that is what this post will show you, so make sure you watch the video below.

Campbell-McBride is not alone in her plea for personal responsibility in the home, and it is exciting to find so many medical specialists reaching out to the public, telling them what the Savvy Team founders have been saying for decades now – “Your health is directly related to a healthy gut, which depends entirely on the foods you eat, the quality and quantity of nutrition you get, on your mental and emotional state and last but not least, on your exposures to toxins -both exogenous and endogenous.” All of these areas impact your micro biome and you.

Sick Home – Healthy Home

Over the last 50 years humans have changed the face of the earth. The chemical revolution has brought us many consumer delights, but these have come at a very high price when you consider their affect on our future health and wellbeing.

This toxic chemical onslaught is still happening today, causing an increasing number of health issues and epidemics, resulting from any number of 75,000 plus and growing, commonly used, potentially toxic synthetic chemicals, released into our environment or applied directly to or into our bodies each day by consumer products. Check out this Endocrine Disrupting Chemical report by the WHO.

Many years ago Samuel Epstein asked us, “Are you even aware that Australia has no regulations concerning the safety of ingredients in the products we use in the home?” Read More

How Bad Is Australia’s Gut Problem?

Having good health is very different from only being not sick.” said Seneca the Younger in 50 AD. And that statement needs to be remembered as we examine the state of the nation’s health. So just how bad are the problems associated with digestion and digestive health issues in Australia?  

According to an Australian 2010 study, the estimated incidence  in Australia of just one of the many issues related to gut health – IBD – is high, even compared to other countries with considered high incidences of IBD. The earliest physicians in Ancient Egypt believed that illnesses were the work of gods, evil spirits and sorcery. This was challenged by the ‘father of Western medicine’, Greek physician Hippocrates, who argued that , rather than punishment from supernatural forces, illnesses were the product of environmental factors, diet and living habits. The Savvy Team agree with this simple 2000 year old philosophy.

The ABC’s Four Corners recently aired a controversial documentary (The Autism Enigma) on how gut bacteria might affect autism, but what else is it affecting? Recent research into the connections between the brain, the immune system and gut dysfunction have created a whole new area of research that has led to a growing awareness of the importance of the gut flora, now known as your microbiome.  The human microbiome includes viruses, fungi and bacteria, their genes and their environmental interactions, and is known to influence not only human physiology but also it’s psychology. Your gut affects everything else going on in your body.

The Importance of Water

With two thirds of the earth’s surface covered by water and the human body consisting of 75 percent of it, it is evidently clear that water is one of the prime elements responsible for life on earth.

Water circulates through the land just as it does through the human body, transporting, dissolving, replenishing nutrients and organic matter, while carrying away waste material.

Water is the main source of energy for your body.  Further, in the body, water regulates the activities of fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and glandular secretions. Each of your cells work like hydroelectric dams.  When you drink ample water, Read More
