New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Your Immune System is Mostly Gut Bacteria?

I want to discuss the relationship
between your friendly bacteria your gut bacteria we’re gonna call that the
microbiome and your immune system in fact 70% of your immune system really is
this microbiome your gut bacteria you have trillions and trillions of microbes
living in and around your body that are a constantly exchanging with you you’re
giving them a place to live and what they give you is immune protection they
give you nutrients they help your blood sugars and they give you other things
that are beneficial there’s over 10,000 different species of friendly bacteria
in and around your body and 99% of them are non pathogenic they’re the good guys
the great majority of microbes in your body are living in the large colon just
above and in the mucus layer and then you have the colon cells and then you
have another layer of protection where you have certain immune cells or guards
waiting for an invader to pop through so they can attack and eat them up what
happens is when you have an imbalance in the microbiome you start to lose your
gut lymphatic layer you start to have a decrease in your lymph nodes you start
to have less antibodies and antibodies are those things that attach on
microbes they don’t kill the microbes they put a tag on them for other immune
cells to kill them antibodies are very specific to different pathogens and then
you also have a decrease in the T cell production and T stands for thymus
because the thymus gland helps train the T cells and you’re gonna have less of
that the primary function of the thymus gland is central tolerance able to
tolerate your own cells that are beneficial to you because if you do not
have that function these soldier cells they’re like special forces would not be
able to tell the difference between the good guys and the bad guys and they
would end up killing both of them and you
end up with your own body cells getting attacked that is a condition cold and
autoimmune disease Auto antibodies or antibodies that are basically attacking
your own tissue but they’re not really attacking they’re tagging your own
tissue as being a bad guy and other immune cells like t-cells are going in
there and actually trying to attack them and that creates inflammation and when
you have autoimmune conditions you always have inflammation and that’s
really what’s happening you’re getting this constant attack and because the
microbiome is so heavily connected to your immune system when you lose this
you lose this and you lose the tolerance and you lose the ability to learn to
differentiate now we have a situation where we have a lot of friendly fire and
we have a lot of collateral damage in the body and a lot of inflammation
t-cells not only differentiate between your cells and a pathogen cell it’s
quite amazing that your body has this ability to differentiate trillions of
cells from pathogens that are not necessarily your cell but they’re so
intimately involved and there’s such a helper to your body that your body has
developed a system to keep them alive and not attack and kill them and also
there are certain t-cells that suppress inflammation so if we lose that what do
we get a lot of inflammatory conditions if we also don’t have enough microbiome
we get less small chain fatty acid and one would be called butyrate and
butyrate is not only helpful in balancing your blood sugars and
definitely improving insulin resistance but it’s also there to help improve your
immune system also you have less ability to make b12 B1 vitamin K biotin
and even lactic acid which makes the environment for pathogens very
uncomfortable also the microbiome are hoarding the food and the space to also
limit the amount of pathogenic bacteria to exist and the less microbiome you
have the weaker the intestinal barrier and then
you start getting leaky gut and I really think and this is my own opinion
that autoimmune disease starts in the gut
if you ever talked to someone who has an autoimmune disease
I’m talking about like Hashimoto’s Crohn’s lupus MS they almost always have
a gut problem and my other videos when I talk about COVID-19 the coronavirus the
way that that virus attacks your cell is through a receptor called the ACE2
receptor well it just so happens that your gut has way more ace2 receptors
than the lung tissue so this is another mode of entry into the cell that goes
beyond just your lung infection which is quite interesting if you want to know
what to do to support the microbiome check out this video right here

There is a really interesting relationship between your gut bacteria and your immune system. Check this out.

4:11 The microbiome and immunity 

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between your friendly gut bacteria and your immune system. 

There are trillions of microbes that live in and around your body. This is called the microbiome. You give these microbes a place to live, and in exchange, they give you immune protection, nutrients, and other beneficial things. 

• 70% of the immune system is the microbiome
• There are over 10,000 different species of friendly bacteria in and around the body
• 99% of your microbiome is non-pathogenic 
• The majority of microbes are living in the gut 

When you have an imbalance in gut bacteria or the microbiome, you start to:

• Lose your gut lymphatic layer 
• Have a decrease in lymph nodes 
• Have fewer antibodies 
• Have a decrease in T-cell production
• Have less small-chain fatty acids 
• Have less ability to make B12, B1, vitamin K, biotin, and lactic acid 

The friendly bacteria hoard the amount of food and space available to limit the number of pathogenic microbes. The less microbiome you have, the weaker the intestinal barrier is, which can lead to leaky gut. It’s also my opinion the autoimmune diseases start in the gut. 

COVID-19 attacks the cells through the ACE2 receptor. Your gut has way more ACE2 receptors than the lung tissue. So, this could be another mode of entry into the cell that goes beyond a lung infection.
