Mood & Healthy Gut Flora: Nurture Your Microbiota!
“I am anxious.”
“I am depressed.”
“I am struggling with insomnia.”
“I want restorative sleep.”
It’s my first day doing consultations again, after two months of transformation, travel, and developing a new business. I hear the words above from four of my clients.
What is the cause? Mounting evidence indicates that gut health, particularly the diversity and amount of intestinal microbiota, may be the single largest factor contributing to the prevalence of these issues in Western society.
A series of similar follow-up questions come from all four clients: “I’ve taken enemas before. They helped. I want more. What next steps should I take?”
Enemas support the body to relieve anxiety, lessen depression, and even to sleep deeper, partially by promoting healthy gut flora. Enemas cleanse the colon of the type of bacteria that fuel anxiety, throw hormonal levels out of balance, intensify food cravings, contribute to adrenal fatigue, and more.
According to scientific research, mood and anxiety disorders are on the upswing, and this has been connected to unhealthy gut microbiota. About 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. About 1 in 10 adults in the U.S. suffer from depression. And it’s our high-stress society, full of processed foods and antibiotics, that create these conditions. (Note that we aren’t against antibiotics, but think they should be used sparingly, with measures taken to restore healthy gut bacteria during and after their use.)

The amount of colon cleansing you need to optimize your microbiome depends on where you live, whether you were breastfed, the state of your health, what you eat, the amount of pharmaceuticals you have taken throughout your life, the quality of water you drink, the amount of stress you are under, and NOT whether you are constipated!

The thyroid gland that makes and stores hormones that help regulate the heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and the rate at which food is converted into energy. Thyroid hormones are essential for the function of every cell in the body.
For the Adrenal Glands and Immune System:
The adrenal glands produce hormones that help control heart rate, blood pressure, the way the body uses food, the levels of minerals such as sodium and potassium in the blood, and other functions particularly involved in stress reactions.
The immune system is a diffuse, complex network of interacting cells, cell products, and cell-forming tissues that protects the body from pathogens and other foreign substances, destroys infected and malignant cells, and removes cellular debris: the system includes the thymus, spleen, lymph nodes and lymph tissue, stem cells, white blood cells, antibodies, and lymphokines.
For the Gut and Its Mucosal Barrier:
The intestinal mucosal barrier is said to be the body’s second skin. From the mouth to the anus, there is a mucosal barrier, which serves as the first line of defense against pathogens. The mucosal barrier also shows the body how to deal with food antigens, which may cause allergies and sensitivities.The mucosal barrier is also found in sinuses and genital defenses.
Since omega-3 fatty acids are known to benefit cardiovascular health, support healthy brain function and cognition, and have also been proven to maintain a healthy inflammatory response, achieving the proper balance of omega-3s has become an important health strategy, requiring supplementation for most people. The American Heart Association recommends that those concerned about blood lipids take up to 4 g of omega-3 fatty acids per day.
