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 aging related issues. Research about the gut microbiome expands in support that it influences the immune system and inflammation that many times precedes bone and joint diseases related to aging: osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcopenia and frailty. (1) The gut microbiomome and bacteria affected pain severity perception in one report 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 has an effect on 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 is different 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. Knowing these gut microbiota differences can lead doctors in their diagnosis of AIS and set up options for the patients to modify their gut microbiota. (3) Such intestinal bacterial alterations are seen in other human diseases, also, 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 associated with decreased activities of daily living, particularly in older people. Recent analyses revealed the significance of gut microbiota in the regulation of these diseases. (4) West Palm Beach chiropractic patients may not often think of their gut’s condition on a everyday basis, but research keeps reminding doctors like your West Palm Beach chiropractor that it requires attention!
