Sean discusses Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Natasha Campbell-McBride, focusing on the immune system. The immune system of our children is inherited by the parents. It starts in the womb, the baby has a sterile gut. When it goes through the birth canal, it is exposed to the mother's vaginal flora, which is either good or bad and that's when the seed is planted for the child's immune system.
When a baby has a compromised immune system, it will be prone to infections, then the doctor prescribes antibiotics. Antibiotics make the gut flora even worse. With vaccinations, children are exposed to toxins and if the gut flora is not there, the baby wont be able to detoxify the vaccination. The weaning diet can reverse some of this damage, but not if the first foods are grains. Check out Chris Kresser's Healthy Baby Code at http://healthyuwbaby.com
Poor gut flora damages the gut wall. The villi, which absorb your foods, are lined with enterocytes. The nutrients pass through and go into the bloodstream to provide the nutrients to your body. When you have bad flora, it makes chemicals that create spaces between the enterocytes, letting more than just nutrients into your blood stream. When you have toxins sliding in, it puts a burden on your liver and lungs and skin.
