Learning about "Archaea"

So today . . . let's find out what the purpose of "archaea" is . . . in the human body. Now . . . most "archaea" are known to be" beneficial" rather than "harmful" to human health.

These "cells" are important for "regulating" skin pH and keeping it normal.

You see . . . "regulated" pH in skin is associated with "less" infections.


But . . . when we have TOO MANY "archaea" in the body . . . and they make "too much" "METHANE" . . . we are NOW in TROUBLE . . .

This now becomes an "intestinal methane overgrowth" . . .

So how does this happen you ask???

Well . . . having chronic constipation due to undereating or a "low fiber diet" . . . issues with the Migrating Motor complex . . . (which is low stomach acid and/or bile) . . . obstructions in the intestines . . . or adhesions . . .

Can all "slow" down the passage of food in the digestive tract.

And with this . . . slower "transit" time . . . or "too much" methane produced . . . can cause a "small intestinal bacterial overgrowth" (SIBO) . . . which can lead to various symptoms like nausea, abdominal pain and weight gain.

Okay . . . so if we do have "too much" methane in our intestinal tract . . . what foods should be "avoid"???

Well . . . that would be . . .



Wheat based produced like cereals, breads and crackers


Natural and artificial sweeteners including agave syrup, xylitol, sorbitol and high fructose corn syrup.

Dairy product like cheese and/or ice cream

Certain vegetables like onions, garlic, artichokes, cabbage, cauliflower, asparagus

And coffee

So in a nutshell . . . "methane" is an end product of "MICROBIAL FERMENTATION" in the human gastrointestinal tract.

And this "gas" . . . is solely produced by "archaea".

So next week we're going to talk about how to "control" our archaea and then a little about the "candy" we're about to consume in this upcoming holiday.

Stay safe and be "mindful".
