Happy Grooving Starts With A Healthy Gut
Last year, researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center published evidence that bacteria in the gut – primarily governed by diet – could be the key factor behind osteoarthritis. Once again, scientific inquiry and academic findings reveal that everything in the body is connected.
Ayurvedic practice and eastern medicine have long held this position - that every interaction, function, symptom in the human body is a part of the whole body. You can’t simply segment out certain things. This is why so many people and practitioners are now turning to holistic approaches to treat and heal conditions, symptoms, and issues that flare up and affect overall health and well-being.
As it turns out, the activity in your gut can impact how comfortably active you are able to be. Essentially, the presence of probiotics may decrease inflammation and inflammatory responses throughout your entire body. With less inflammation, your joints are better protected, your muscles are less achy, and you feel less of those annoying and uncomfortable aches and pains.
The prolonged inflammation that can be caused by a lack of a healthy gut and functional digestive system may be the culprit for early-onset osteoarthritis, chronic arthritis, and other forms of joint pain.
The classic “American diet” of fast-food, non-complex carbs, loads of corn byproducts, high sugar, and over-processed foods do not support the maintenance of healthy probiotics in the gut! The digestive system suffers and causes a greater degree of inflammation - even in joints and muscles.
Arthritis - technically an autoimmune disease - may include symptoms such as cartilage deterioration due to the lack of supportive probiotics in the gut. Having probiotics in your gut will strengthen your immune system and decrease inflammation in your body.
Michael Zuscik, Ph.D., associate professor of Orthopaedics in the Center for Musculoskeletal Research, led the study at URMC and reminds us that, “Cartilage acts as both a cushion and a lubricant, supporting friction-free joint movements. When you lose that, it’s bone on bone, rock on rock. It’s the end of the line and you have to replace the whole joint. Preventing that from happening is what we, as osteoarthritis researchers, strive to do – to keep that cartilage.”
The last thing you want to do is have surgery to repair such joint issues, so getting ahead of the game and incorporating probiotics may make a huge difference. Surgery is expensive, involves time-consuming recovery, and a lot of time is spent in physical therapy. You can hopefully avoid that by taking preventative and pre-habilitative steps now to ensure that your gut health and joint health are prioritized.
