By this stage in the game, people know the gut plays a vital role in your immune system. Your immune system can keep your body in great shape to defend against all the bad things that can impair health. But a study is showing us that the use of probiotics can be quite helpful in combating stress.
Even the title of the study is Greek to most but the point of it shows that a strong microbiome is especially resilient to stress. What makes your microbiome stronger? Probiotics. Don’t be intimidated by the word mycobacterium. Certainly it’s not something you want to accidentally incur but if you’re giving it by way of a vaccination, like in this study, it seems to work well for dawning the “give zero ducks” cape.
So how can we get our paws on this Popeye can of spinach? It appears many companies have been working on such magical vaccines and they’ve been applied to conditions like Tuberculosis. BCG anybody?
Everything in my head ties-in to diabetes. BCG has been identified by Dr. Denise Faustman of the Massachusetts General Hospital as a Type 1 diabetes treatment. Can undue stress trigger Type 1 diabetes? Quite possibly, according to an increased incidence of T1D diagnosis shortly after an earthquake in California.
So what can you do if a BCG vaccine is not on the top of your to-do list? Beef-up your probiotic ingestion. Easy ways to do this are: drink kombucha, eat sauerkraut, and balance it out by adding a well-rounded probiotic.
