Personalised diets based on computer algorithms and gene or gut microbiome tests?

Hi folks,
I am not going to over-write in this little blog. I merely want to prompt you into some deep thinking about the following while I highlight some cool research that has been in the news:
and more here on the personalised nutrition project
dna
In a nutshell we can if we like soon look to science and technology to tell us what to do when it comes to food…. and hope and trust that it knows more than Momma Nature and the innate healing wisdom within.
I am not dismissing this research for one moment, I think the more we can learn the more awesome this journey is for all of us; however I also believe that we are far smarter than we think at learning what works for us in health and wellness….. once encouraged, empowered and educated to get us started along this health adventure.
I want to ask you to pause a moment and ask yourself some questions:

It almost always starts in the gut….

Functional Diagnostic testing can be incredibly helpful in the diagnostic work up of patients suffering with chronic health problems….

Do you suffer from any of the following problems?

  • Chronic gastrointestinal problems such as IBS, post-infectious IBS, leaky gut, food allergies, food sensitivity, histamine intolerance, inflammation, ulcers, leaky gut, Crohns disease, Ulcerative colitis, etc.?
  • Skin problems such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, itchy skin, hives, eczema, or urticaria?
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome or Fibromyalgia?
  • Autoimmune conditions such as arthritis
  • Elevated cholesterol or heart disease (may be linked to certain microbes)
  • Thyroid problems
  • Elevated levels of toxic metals?
  • Depression, anxiety, or other central nervous system conditions
  • Food allergies, gluten intolerance, or multiple chemical sensitivities?
  • the list goes on and on and many conditions may seem very far removed from the health of the gut and the functioning of the local immune system in the gut; but they are not! See here for a nice review on Dysbiosis of the gut microbiota in disease

And have you had exposure to any of these?

  • Antibiotics as a child
  • Multiple courses of antibiotics as an adult
  • Severe food poisoning or gastro bugs or gastro-flu
  • History of foreign travel
  • Well water or exposure to water of questionable quality
  • Oral contraceptive pill, stomach acid blockers/ proton pump inhibitors, or steroid medication exposures
  • High stress levels
  • Poor diet; notably high intake of sugar or foods containing antibiotics or glycophosphates (e.g. processed wheat), or alcohol
  • Pets and farm animals

It may be easier than you think to diagnose a significant causative factor to your chronic health problems…

I just read Andrea Cullen’s E-book and I can now say that it is the go to guide that I will use with clients. It’s practical and sympathetic to the challenges of gluten-free living while also dispelling many of the myths around this increasingly relevant topic. After 3 years of living “primal” I can say that removing gluten from the menu has been part of the process for me being the healthiest, strongest and happiest I’ve ever been.

Thanks to Andrea and of course Dr Thomas O’Bryan for their efforts in making this health issue known and providing a working solution. I have had several athletes eliminate gluten with amazing results. While not all athletes are gluten intolerant there are few who don’t notice becoming leaner and experience faster recovery when they eliminate gluten from their menu. This resource makes the process of educating athletes, clients and their families a much simpler one. Thanks again!
