So last week . . . we discovered that we "can" have an "overgrowth" of the bacterial cell called . . . "archaea".
And that too much "archaea" produces "methane gas" in our stomach and gut . . . that can cause diarrhea, constipation, alternating bowel habits, bloating, flatulence, eructation, abdominal discomfort, nausea, dyspepsia, fatigue and brain fog.
And if that isn't bad enough . . . and overgrowth of "archaea" can also be the cause of Crohn's disease, arthritis, lupus and gingivitis.
YES . . . even gingivitis . . . remember the other day . . . I told you they're VERY good swimmers.
Now . . . as with any "bacteria" or "fungus" . . . they "thrive" in an "OXYGEN DEPRIVED" environment.
And with this . . . they produce "methane gas" as a by-product of their energy production.
You see . . . most "bacteria" and "archaea" . . . DON'T use "OXYGEN" to produce energy . . . therefore . . . they "CANNOT" live in an "OXYGEN RICH" environment.
So what does that mean???
Well . . . this Western diet we all love so much . . . consists of "complex carbohydrates" . . . which are very "acidic" to the body.
And "acidity" . . . causes . . . "LACK OF OXYGEN" . . . in the human body.
So the next question we need to ask is this . . . what "feeds" . . . "archaea"???
Well . . . "archaea" like other bacteria . . . love to eat "carbohydrates"!!!
JUST LIKE US . . .
And when we "eat" carbohydrates all the time . . . especially "simple carbs like sugar" . . . this overabundance of "carbohydrates" in the small intestine . . . DO NOT get absorbed into the body.
Why you ask???
Well . . . that's due to the "archaea" eating them up to grow and overtake the intestines and ultimately our health.
Simple as that . . .
And now . . . this high level of "archaea" in the intestines can cause . . . malabsorption and prevent the body from properly utilizing "nutrients".
And with this . . . due to our food NOT being broken down correctly . . . it now causes "digestive" issues like . . . food rotting in the stomach . . . food not being removed from the body correctly . . . which all causes that food (carbohydrates) to "FERMENT".
So tomorrow . . . and for the rest of this week . . . let's talk about the "carbs" we love so much . . . and what all that "Candy" is going to do to our "archaea".
