The Art of Health

Do you know we have the same number of bacteria in our body as the number of human cells that make us up? The majority of these bacteria live in our gut, comprising what is known as the gut microbiome.🌺

The science of gut microbiome is evolving so rapidly, sometimes it’s overwhelming for us physicians as well. Traditionally, gut microbiome was considered as crucial for our gut health, but now its role is also being linked to mental health (gut-brain communication), weight loss, heart health, and a reduced risk of several chronic diseases.🌺

And how do we maintain a healthy gut microbiome?
It’s good to start with the basics: Include one probiotic (containing friendly bacteria) at least once a day in your food. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to have curds daily.🌺

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  3. I have black (rice) vinegar every day. Also found a lovely, tasty Korean version made from plums. I’ll send a photograph if I find it again. There are some kinds of yoghurt I can’t have. Icelandic yoghurt (skyr) is perfect for me – all of the benefits you have outlined here.
