This is an interview worth watching. The segment, which is under 8 minutes, has very rich content.

One bit of information that I learned from this video is  that there are 100 trillion microbes in the human body. When that terrain is compromised, it seems to me and many others, that is the beginning of possible illness. To begin to lessen the odds of illness from occurring, the gastrointestinal tract needs to be repopulated with healthy bacteria.

Secondly, it is stated by Dr. Green, we would not be able to digest our food if it was not for the microbes in our GI tract. That may seem like common knowledge to some, but to most it is not known. When charitable organizations provide food for malnourished people they often give them foods they can not digest. One solution introduced in this study is the introduction of microbes into their guts.

One solution is introduced during this concise segment on the PBS Newshour. An interview with  Dr. Eric Green 6/14/2012  link here. Repopulating the GI tract of those suffering from malnutrition and other diseases with microbes – healthy bacteria.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
