“The brain-gut connection: how TCM has known for centuries what Western medicine is now discovering“
There are more and more such articles published that today scientists discover the functions or malfunctions of the brain is connected with the gut.
This implies brain related problems like Parkinson, dementia, autism, stokes are connected with the gut problems.
This connection and relationship are well understood 3000 years ago as per ancient wisdom “Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic”.
However today scientists using Western Medicine theory still operate with their fragmented and compartmentalized thinking, looking for micro solutions and not macro solutions.
For example, such statements “Recent research has found that bacteria in the gut can affect people’s mental state, leading to mood, cognition and behavioural problems.” lead scientists to zoom in research into the bacteria and elimination of the bacteria.
But that will not solve the fundamental problems.
Let me explain.
As per Google search :
Where is the gut found? The mouth is the first part of the gut (gastrointestinal tract). When we eat, food passes down the gullet (oesophagus), into the stomach, and then into the small intestine. The small intestine has three sections – the duodenum, jejunum and ileum.
The gut involves digestive system (mouth, stomach) and absorption system (small intestines).
Just based on the above limited information, ancient wisdom considered more than 2 variables (Stomach & Intestines) that create whatever may be the health problems.
Stomach is closely related to Spleen. Small Intestines are closely related to Heart.
As per 5-Elements Theory, Spleen / Stomach, Small Intestines / Heart are in constant interaction with Kidneys / Bladder, Lungs / Large Intestines, Liver / Gall-Bladder.
Only with all the organs functionalities are in good balance, you will not have so called bacteria in the guts.
Hence bacteria in the gut is the end result of how well you overall organs functioning. Hence it is not the cause.
