Not too long ago, beneficial bacteria was only thought about in relation to the gastrointestinal ecology. However in recent years we have discovered that the body plays host to a myriad of distinct bacterial colonies that play a vital role in health and disease.
In this episode Andrew and Dr Mark Donohoe discuss the microbiome beyond the gut with a focus on the reproductive system. As well as offering up some diet and lifestyle interventions that we as hosts can use to ensure the health of our resident bugs.
A recent review on intestinal microbiota and probiotics in coeliac disease (CD) revealed that research into CD and the effect of gluten on the intestinal-immune health in adults has only been studied since 2012; prior to that children were the cohort subjects.
Probiotics modulate the immune response in children suffering from coeliac disease by reducing the pro- inflammatory cytokines according to a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
Dr Mark Donohoe discusses the importance of gastrointestinal microbiome biodiversity for optimal health and wellbeing outcomes in our patients.
