GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is engaged in the progress or prevention of a variety of diseases from bone and joint related issues to scoliosis, pain, and age related issues. Research about the gut microbiome grows in support that it stimulates the immune system and inflammation that often precedes bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria modified pain severity perception in one report of chronic pain patients who had low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota affects musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is discovered. The structure of the gut microbiota is different between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were enriched in the feces of AIS patients. In contrast, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was reduced in the AIS group. Knowing these gut microbiota discrepancies can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and establish options for the patients to alter their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are present in other human diseases, as well, like type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and malignancy such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, atherosclerotic stroke and cardiovascular disease are major diseases linked to decreased activities of daily living, particularly in elderly people. Recent analyses revealed the importance of gut microbiota in the control of these diseases. (4) St. Francisville chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research reminds doctors like your St. Francisville chiropractor that it needs attention!
