The spectacular role of the human microbiome in preventing post-prandial endotoxemia, the number one cause of mortality worldwide.

Post-Prandial Endotoxemia (systemic toxicity because of diet) triggers oxidative stress which, along with changes in the immune system, create conditions that lead to gut permeability and chronic, low-grade inflammation. An often-overlooked role of the microbiome is to prevent post-prandial endotoxemia and the inflammatory devastation that follows. This lecture will illustrate the danger of having post-prandial endotoxemia (PPE) and why this condition is being called the number one cause of mortality worldwide. PPE sets up the body for virtually every chronic disease known in the western world. This condition is caused by eating high-calorie and high-fat meals and a failure of the microbiome to protect its host from this response. You simply cannot completely correct any chronic condition without addressing post-prandial endotoxemia first. Read more...

Topic Overview:

  • The role of the microbiome in controlling the immune system, the brain, the endocrine system. and nutrient production – the critical cross-talk between microbe and host.
  • Understanding post-prandial endotoxemia (PPE) and its resulting effects on the human body.
  • Strategies for probiotic therapy that can impact PPE.
  • Results of a clinically validated trial on leaky gut.
  • How to shift and balance the microbiota population.
  • The role of transient, commensal spore-based probiotics in bacteriotherapy to treat PPE.
