HAPPINESS

90% OF SERATONIN IS MADE IN YOUR GUT

 

 

AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO IS YOU, NATURALLY.

A happy person is someone who is living their unique template, maximising what makes them function best, whether this be physically, mentally or emotionally. All too often this means getting back to our most powerful state for health and wellbeing. 

It is fast becoming accepted that our bodies are in fact communities of living organisms, bacteria, fungi, viruses and human living cells. Like any successful community when the balance of symbiosis is disrupted, the community can no longer function to its fullest. This underpins many chronic health conditions of the 21st century. They are more commonly known as lifestyle factors.

With the rapid advancement of science and technology we are coming the full circle from nature, through an era of worship of all things industrial, processed and manufactured, and back to nature, to our genetic blueprint for reaching our fullest potential. 

Neuroscience recognises the community of factors that make us human. It is for this reason that like maximising our resilience, our emotional, intellectual and body intelligences, we also work to enhance mental health and wellbeing, immunity and fitness from its' core - The GUT BRAIN AXIS.

WHAT IS YOUR MICROBIOME?

For decades supplements have helped people target different body systems; however, these solutions have not adequately addressed what is now understood to be at the core of overall health.

Relatively recent scientific discoveries have uncovered a fascinating ecosystem within each of us called the microbiome. This complex network of bacteria, fungi and microflora reside primarily in the gut and impact the health of virtually every system in the human body. The microbiome accounts for 90% of cells that creates you, yet only 10% of the cells in the body contain your human DNA!

Whilst the microbes living in your body are essential to your survival, they can also be detrimental to your health.

Gut flora has been linked to virtually every process in your body. Imbalances have been implicated in countless health issues, some being the deepest chronic health issues of our time, like autoimmune disease, MS, obesity, diabetes, asthma, autism, rheumatism, cancer. Some of the  most striking research has been on the links between the microbiome and the brain- our  mental state and emotional wellbeing can be underpinned by the microbiome.

Inflammation also begins in the glorious gut!! Heart disease, diabetes, joint pain, liver issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity are all different ways that the body experiences inflammation.

Unfortunately living in the modern world is not exactly healthy to our gut!

 

The wonderful thing is that the microbiome is easily accessible  and can be quickly modified. Three quarters of the microbiome live in your intestines, which is why the doctors, scientists and researchers at Synergy have been able to develop the high quality and easy to use products which can turn your future health.

What is your MICROBIOME and Why  is it important?

EPIGENETICS

Simply and concisely, epigenetics means above the genes. In a practical way it means the factors that influence which genes in our bodies are switched on and which genes are switched off. Just as trauma and stress affect our internal environment and therefore the likelihood of genes being activated, so does the internal environment we create with what we put into our bodies, food, drink, chemicals, additives, smoke and anything else we can ingest will, if done over time, affect the expression of our genes.
This exactly why having a brain, nervous system and gut that functions optimally is important to health and well being. Does this mean that we have to live lives of abstinence and strict denial? NO! It does mean that maintaining a healthy underlying lifestyle 90% of the time will help us live a longer more active and functional life. Ask yourself, do I veer from a healthy  way of life 1 day in 10?
