Natural health and detoxification specialists have been on and on for years about cleaning out the body systems, in particular the intestines / gut, in order to begin healing or reversing seeming disease symptoms of all kinds.
Well. It turns out, we may have started to identify connections between major disease pathologies and the gut, after all!
Natural health and detox people may not actually be crazy or "out of their minds" at all!
Here is some heavy information right here (note - PD is Parkinson's Disease):
"Dysregulation of the brain-gut-microbiota axis in PD may be associated with gastrointestinal manifestations frequently preceding motor symptoms, as well as with the pathogenesis of PD itself, supporting the hypothesis that the pathological process is spread from the gut to the brain.
The discovery seems sensible because PD patients often complain of constipation and other digestive problems much much before they notice tremors which are said to be the ‘real’ symptoms." (1)
How's that for humble pie?
