Host health, environment, and health hacks are the three pillars and today's episode explains a tiny yet very big part of the first. The latest estimate of let's look at research, thinkers, traditions, and the evidence around us, which seems to show that all of our life, and our whole environment, are so dependent upon bacteria that our design requires that we take care of these bacteria in the human body. Some speculate that we may be more bacteria than human because we have more bacteria than cells. We have bacteria everywhere in our body, in our mouth saliva. On our teeth in our small intestines, but the colon alone has two times the bacteria of any other organ. I remember the leaders in healing with natural methods from the seventies and eighties saying that all disease starts in the colon.And I know this has been confirmed by things happening today, where we realize that the beneficial bacteria in our gut. Well, I think it's Dr. Perlmutter who says that we used to think it was our second brain. Now we're starting to think it's our first brain. But Perlmutter also quotes that he can trace Parkinson's disease to too many antibiotics over the course of a life. He quotes a study from Finland in the journal of the international Parkinson and movement disorders society.They looked at 54,000 people and found 40,000 people without Parkinson's disease. And compared them to the 13,900 with Parkinson's and found it very likely that antibiotics are a contributor. Total tetracycline exposure, 10 to 15 years before getting Parkinson's. Was shown to be a factor. Sulfonamides and trimethoprim and antifungal medications, one to five years earlier, were also shown to make one more likely to have Parkinson's than those who didn't have it.The scientist showed a 95% confidence interval that killing the bacteria with antibiotics could really lead to disease. Could killing off our bacteria, be tantamount to killing ourselves? Have you heard of MRSA? It's a deadly flesh-eating bacteria that is said to be around because we've used antibiotics too much over the years in our animal feed, pesticides and drugs. Beneficial bacteria is not a new idea and several great scientists have come to the same conclusion. Many years ago, during the days of Louis Pasteur, there was a man named Antoine Bechamp whose lifelong research confirmed that we are surrounded by a sea of germs or bacteria. That could keep us healthy.He considered that these bacteria were part of the host. They were part of what made up the host. So much so that he coined the expression that I use for the first pillar, host health or health of the host. Bechamp found that if the bacteria was healthy, the host was healthy. If a virus caused sickness and was the only factor then everyone would catch a virus that's going around. Yet we're seeing that that's not the case. As we saw with the recent virus that went around, some got very sick. Some it hardly bothered. Right now, as it seems many are getting a little sick. The virus seems to be going through the normal process of getting easier to catch and that the same time, less dangerous bef
