We have two genomes, one inherited from our parents and the other acquired from our microbiome. Our inherited genome from our parents takes so many generations to change. Mathematical models suggest we have the ability to change 0.05% of our genetic material over 100,000 years. On average, in DNA sequence, each human is 99.5% similar to any other human. While our inherited genome hardly changes if at all during our lifetime, the microbiome genome is extremely dynamic and can be constantly changing, even from night and day. The human gut microbiome accounts for more than 5 million different genes that is 100 x the number of genes we possess. Some of the genes encoded by the human core microbiome build systems required for their human host survival, but not present in our human genome.
Our gut microbiota consists of more than 10 trillion microbial cells, which is about 10X the number of our own cells making up about 1–2 kg of our body weight. Our gut bugs play a very active role in our overall general health and not just our gut health. There are more than 1000 microbial strains but 90% of the biomass consists of firmicutes and bacteroidetes.
What makes our gut healthy?
Having the right number of bugs and the right combination of species of bugs for your body is what we are striving for. Majority of these bugs live in and on us because they are in our environment and food. More often than not it is not a deficiency of microbes but usually a problem occurs when we get an overgrowth of the wrong types of bugs or even an overgrowth of what may be considered healthy bugs that disrupt the balance. We can have too much of a good thing.
Our eating has changed & our food has changed
Our food has changed due to farming techniques, harvesting, storage and food preparation techniques along with our food choices and purchases.
Per gram of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains, we now consume:
- More sugar
- Less fiber
- Less Modbiotic ™ compounds; antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal compounds from fiber, pulp, skins, peels, and seeds
- Pesticides that may alter our microbes in our gut
- Less micronutrients
Too many “firmicute” bacteria
Firmicutes are sugar feeders that create inflammation and slow our metabolism
Not enough “bacteroidetes” bacteria
Bacteroidetes bacteria are fat feeders that block inflammation and boost our metabolism
We eat a “balanced” diet but not a varied diet
We eat the same food all year round and we don’t eat with seasons. In nature, we would cycle between different fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and grains through the seasons. Eating what is fresh and available for the season and then having months off while we wait for that season return. We have been taught to have a balanced diet by balancing our food groups in each meal or day but we tend to select the same foods, our favorite foods to consume most days, all year round.
We do not have regular intermittent fasting. In nature we go through phases of feast and famine, our metabolism learns to adapt to changing ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fats and eating at different times of the day.
Without this variation and change, there is a constant food supply for certain microorganisms and deficiencies of favorite foods for other microbes and that will fuel an overgrowth of some and deficiencies of others. We need variety.
So, how do we fix it?
No. we have too many bugs and most probiotic supplements are actually firmicutes e.g. lactobacillus is a firmicute! Using probiotics to fix overgrowth of bad bugs is like throwing grass seeds at weeds. They do not get rid of established bad bugs and usually just add more firmicutes.
No. We already have too much sugar in our food, they are already eating that. Why add a capsule more? Prebiotics are just food for bugs, do you want to feed your weeds? If probiotics are like throwing grass seeds at weeds than prebiotics are like throwing fertilizer on weeds.
No. that just combines the above 2 points.
So, what is GutRight?
GutRight is a Modbiotic™ formulation. It is a concentrated form of naturally healthy modbiotic compounds that once was once found in abundance in our traditional diet, which was loaded with skins, peels seeds and fibre.
Modbiotics™ are chemicals found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices that we simply aren’t eating enough of in our modern lifestyle, due to the overabundance of refined foods in our Western diets.
GutRight is simply restoring the balance we once enjoyed when we ate a more natural diet. Just as we supplement our diet to replace the deficient micronutrients with a multi vitamin formulation, we can supplement our diet with deficient modbiotic compounds with GutRight.
Short term kickstart:
Do this to start your GUTRIGHTTM journey or again after events that may disrupt your healthy balance of gut flora for example after antibiotics, food poisoning, colds, cases of flu or allergies, bad eating and binging.
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey 3 times daily with meals for 10 days whilst following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
What to expect:
This will be directly proportional to what is living inside you and what it smells and sounds like as it leaves you.
The Herxheimer reaction is a die-off reaction, the more bad bugs you have to kill the more toxins are released, some people may experience burping, farting, gurgling, nausea, others may not feel much different at all.
This product is not a laxative style purgative. It will not induce explosive diarrhea or leakage. The purging effect comes from the removal of excessive organisms and how they try to fight back.
Take 1 teaspoon of GUTRIGHTTM mixed into water, juice, smoothie, NOWAYTM protein powder or honey daily. (At night is best as normal transit time will be about 10 hours which will mean you are regular each morning but everyone can work out their own way)
