Depression, Inflammation, Leaky Gut and the Microbiome: New Directions in Nursing

Depression results in more absenteeism than almost any other physical disorder and costs employers more than US$51 billion per year in absenteeism and lost productivity, not including high medical and pharmaceutical bills. Depression in children is the greatest form of disability and prescription numbers are growing.

While many think of their brain as the organ in charge of their mental health, your gut may actually play a far more significant role. Our immune systems are largely housed in the gut and the interplay between the gut and the brain is a complex and profoundly important relationship. It is time to expand our horizon about mental health and health promotion professionals are perfectly positioned to do this.

The Genomics Revolution – A New Frontier for Nursing

Microbiome Medicine: The Next Revolution in Modern Wellness

The microbiome is the community of trillions of bacteria that live in your digestive tract and elsewhere throughout your body. Collectively weighing about three pounds — the same weight as our brain — these bacteria outnumber our human cells by a factor of about 10 to 1. Not only do our bacteria outnumber us, their genes outnumber our genes — by a factor of 150 to 1. In many ways, their genes have more of an influence over our day-to-day life than our own genes do.

When your microbiome is balanced, you have good digestion, clear thinking, balanced mood, and glowing overall health. When your microbiome goes out of balance, however, you risk such symptoms as brain fog, depression, anxiety, bad skin, insomnia, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
