Diet And Exercise Alter Gut Microbiome And Reveal Independent Associations With Anxiety And Cognition

By Center for Individualized Medicine

 
New Research from the Epigenomics Program

In a recently published journal article, from researchers at the Center for Individualized Medicine, it was found that the ingestion of a high-fat diet (HFD) and the resulting obese state can exert a multitude of stressors on an individual including anxiety and cognitive dysfunction. Though many studies have shown that exercise can alleviate the negative consequences of a HFD using metabolic readouts such as insulin and glucose, a paucity of well-controlled rodent studies have been published on HFD and exercise interactions with [...]

By Center for Individualized Medicine

Gut Feeling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flatulence is a daily phenomenon. In fact, most human beings pass gas 10-20 times a day (yes, that includes you). Where does your bodily gas come from? Mayo Clinic doctor, Purna Kashyap, MBBS, takes us on a journey into the intestines, shedding light on how gas is made, which foods contribute most to its production...and why it stinks.

My husband Joe and I recently celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with an adventure traversing to historic and national sites in five states. The chartered bus trip began in Denver venturing through Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and South Dakota. I never saw the bottom of my densely packed suitcase as we stayed in eight hotels in 12 days. By the end of the trip, I was the proud winner of the Chartered Bus' heaviest suitcase contest with the prize that made my suitcase even heavier -- a Granite rock from the Black Hills Mountain carving of Crazy Horse Memorial.

Microbiome Medicine is Sometimes a Hard Pill to Swallow

By Center for Individualized Medicine

Microbiome Medicine

 

Article Originally Featured on NationalGeographic.com

Written by: Carl Zimmer

 

I can still remember the shock I felt when I heard about fecal microbiota transplants for the first time. It is not the sort of thing you forget.
