Montreal Gut Health is Important at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic

We’re one big, happy family. Who are “we”? Our bodies and the billions of microorganisms living with us in harmony…most of the time! The microorganisms in the gut particularly are quite important to the health status of our bodies, especially as we grow, age and have pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic takes care of older and younger Montreal chiropractic patients alike. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic additionally cares for their add-on “friends”, microorganisms, and presents information about how to maintain a harmonious and healthy relationship.

GUT MICROBIOTA, BACTERIA, AND DISEASE

Gut microbiota is involved in the development 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 expands in evidence that it stimulates the immune system and inflammation that often leads to bone and joint diseases associated with aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria influenced pain severity perception in one study of chronic pain patients who experienced low back, leg, and whole body pain. (2) An interesting cause for developing scoliosis involves the human gastrointestinal tract. The gut microbiota influences musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis, but now alterations of the gut microbiome in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is found. The structure of the gut microbiota varied between AIS and healthy research study groups. The genera prevotella, gelria, and desulfovibrio were more noted in the feces of AIS patients. Contrastingly, the abundance of parasutterella, tyzzerella, and phascolarctobacterium was decreased in the AIS group. Recognizing these gut microbiota differences can help doctors diagnose AIS and establish options for the patients to modify their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial differences are present in other human diseases, too, 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 reduced activities of daily living, especially in older people. Recent analyses reported the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) Montreal chiropractic patients may not often consider their gut’s condition on a regular basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your Montreal chiropractor that it needs attention!
