Hygiene Hypothesis: How Germs Promote Health

Do sterile environments negatively impact health positively or negatively?
A new study co-authored by researchers from the University of Ulm in Germany and CU Boulder, adds to mounting evidence supporting the “hygiene hypothesis,” which posits that overly sterile environments can breed health problems.
In the study:
Adult men who had grown up in the country with pets had a healthier immune response to stress than those who grew up pet-free in the city, a new study shows.
The study is the first in humans to suggest the ‘hygiene hypothesis’ applies to mental health too.
Exposure to beneficial microorganisms in childhood may lead to better mental health in adulthood.
Why? My theory is that your gut must have these beneficial microorganisms throughout your life, but especially in childhood, to develop and sustain a healthy gut. A healthy gut is required for consistent production of 90% of Serotonin (happy hormone) and proper endocrine function that regulates mood.
Should you give up being happy if you didn’t grow up on a farm or around pets? No! But it means that you may need to do more to boost and support your immune through your gut health now.
A few tips:
1. Take Natural Pro-Biotics via Home Made Fermented Foods. Sauerkraut is easy to make, and one of the best solutions.
2. Detox and eat clean regularly. Organically grown is best. Check into community supported agriculture if you can’t grow your own.  Community Supported Agriculture
3. Build Resilience, Manage Stress. Chronically high stress levels use up or kill off healthy microbiome by keeping blood sugar and cortisol levels artificially high.  Help Now Strategies
4. Get off drugs and medications as much as possible. Synthetically produced substances tend to kill healthy microbiome. Reduce all that you can through clean eating.  Clean Eating Course + Detox
5. Stop smoking to protect your lung microbiota.
6. Get a little exercise. Stretching and walking for a minimum of 20 minutes per day is good.
7. Associate with people who have positive mental health. Turns out their “germs” transferred to you can have a positive impact on your too.
8. Get in Touch with Nature. Nature is rich in microorganisms that can benefit and harm. On the whole, exposure to natural organisms help the body boost immune. Get out there.
9. Eliminate mold and harmful environmental exposure. Not all natural substances build immune. Mold exposure is important to reduce or eliminate as it tends to unbalance your microbiome.
10. Get a dog and don’t be afraid to let your dog lick your face. Turns out that bacterial communities associated with dogs benefit humans most.
11. Extra support: fecal implants and liquid dieting can help in more serious cases when all else fails to produce a return to health.
As with all health related matters, prevention is worth a pound of cure. Consistent clean eating is key, and quality is much more important than counting calories or focusing on quantity alone. Feed your body what it was designed to eat, and live. Clean it out with a regular cleanse. Let food be thy medicine.

  4. Hello my name is Matt D’Agati. A sundry of job seekers are overwhelmed when obtaining a experienced resume writing outfits equates to a fitting nest egg and this is a proper question, so let’s first take a look at a mouse’s share of of the statistic results that saddled with business leaders that make the contract and employ a renown trained resume creator company.
    Lets start this debate by noticing that a site for an job searching network labeled Ladders, asserts that commuting a resume formulated by a resume help factory relating to any encountered job listing uplift that individual’s capabilities of being selected by 30%. Also, faxing a excellently manifested resume to effectively any online institutional vacancy posting will increase the applicant’s prospects of bolting down an conference by 41%.

    Yes, having a gangster resume that is fortified by a golden resume writing company finalizes a scalpel -sharp competitive flame to high level job seekers and especially high -level employment questers, so be it practically every worthy professional resume creator service also produces notable and effective social media profiles in addition to superlative resumes. Kidding aside, having securing a resume that is well -written or professionally conceived is forever the most necessary nexus of any job quest, yet possessing an equally stalwart Social Media presence is really marginally less crucial in the hierarchy of securing a position.Matthew D’Agati
