Yoram Yasur Abt: The intestinal flora could regulate our health and behavior

Yoram Yasur Abt : The intestinal flora plays a more important role in our bodies, and there are even many specialists who point out that it is practically an extension of our brains in that it is capable of regulating an impressively diverse amount of the factors of our body. Yoram Yasur Abt: “The intestinal flora has become such an important area for medicine that even controversial fecal transplants have developed, where doctors pass bacteria from a healthy person to a person who has a problem trying to make the symptoms disappear or treat the basis of a disease”.

What is the intestinal flora and how does it affect us?

Yoram Yasur Abt : T In medicine it is called microbiota or microbiome to the community of bacteria or fungi that live in our stomach or in our intestines which is also known as intestinal flora, which is theoretically responsible for a variety of bodily aspects.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “The microbiota is responsible, for example, for our behavior, since the way it is shaped affects the brain’s chemical reactions that can make us more anxious, tolerant, cheerful, sad, funny or bored”. There are also several studies that have linked the microbiota to chronic depression, since a poor composition of bacteria is capable of generating the absence in the brain of hormones as important as serotonin or dopamine.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “There are also other studies that have related the microbiota to Parkinson’s disease and even other neurodegenerative diseases, while many treatments on the intestinal microbiota are intended to respond to some pathologies of the autistic spectrum”.

Yoram Yasur Abt : The human intestine also has millions of neurons that transmit information about the bacterial flora to the brain. The transmission of this information and the effects it produces should be further analyzed by science in depth, while various studies are being carried out but especially with test animals, such as laboratory mice.

The intestinal flora could also be responsible for regulating our metabolisms, in the words of several investigations, thus favoring the appearance of obesity or extreme thinness beyond the eating habits of people, which can also be seen affected by the hormones generated by the microbiota causing the person to have more or less hunger or anxiety that leads to the desire to eat.

Yoram Yasur Abt : Faced with this issue is that many famous companies have launched to the market products with probiotics intended to treat slow traffic or promote weight loss, although the scientific community has some objections to those promises.

Studies in mice have shown that treatments on the bacterial flora of the gut can make them feel less or more fearful, less or more anxious, and even give them more or less energy. Also in these studies on mice have found some relationships between the microbiota and what is our memory, although this aspect must be explored much more thoroughly.

Beyond saying that in the intestine we have a second brain is a bit exaggerated, no doubt that the bacterial composition of the microbiota can affect us in many ways, ranging from our health, our behavior and even our feelings.

If in fact the microbiota is responsible for diseases such as Parkinson’s or may be the key to treat some types of autism, in addition to regulating aspects such as obesity, depression, the appearance of anxiety or the functioning of our memories, is without doubt one of the keys that the medicine of the future should have in mind when it comes to finding answers to human problems.

Will the intestinal flora in the future be the answer to many of the diseases that currently concern millions of humans on the planet? Do you think the high expectations are justified by the discoveries made so far?

# 1 Disconnecting:

Yoram Yasur Abt will give you one great advice: Put your cell phone in air mode and disconnect for a while. This will serve to keep you away from your email, messages and social networks. On countless occasions, we feel overwhelmed with all the information we receive constantly.

# 2 Be selfish from time to time:

Yoram Yasur Abt:  Every day, take a moment where you do an activity that makes you feel good. Go for a walk, eat a delicious dessert or maybe go and give yourself that much-needed massage. Take that moment out for yourself and forget about the needs of others.

# 3 Get out of your comfort zone:

Yoram Yasur Abt:  Try a new look, go see a different movie or do an activity that you are not used to. Getting out of the rut can be this touch you need in your life.

Yoram Yasur Abt: Vaginismus

Yoram Yasur Abt:  Vaginismus

Vaginismus is one of the most common causes of female pain during sex and is also the main reason why some married couples stop having sex. But despite being so common, it is not always talked about.

Yoram Yasur ABt: “When a woman suffers from vaginismus sexual encounters are difficult, from feeling discomfort during the act or intense pain that does not even allow penetration. Although humans love to make us strong, you do not have to learn to live with pain”.

There is no reason to leave sex totally outside your home nor should you risk having any kind of injury forcing the sexual act. Here we tell you everything you need to know about vaginismus:

Symptoms and Causes:

Yoram Yasur ABt:  The main symptoms of vaginismus are pain and discomfort in the vaginal area during penetration. Yoram Yasur ABt: “Although doctors do not know for sure what triggers vaginismus, it is usually related to anxiety and fear of having sex. Like fears and anxiety in general, not all we fear the same things, so each diagnosis can vary from person to person”.

Yoram Yasur ABt:  Some women have vaginismus after childbirth, others after a traumatic experience, and others for phobia to become pregnant. That’s just to give you an idea of what could start it, because every head is a world. In addition, vaginismus can be selective, since some people feel pain with any type of object that enters their body, and those who suffer it only under certain circumstances.

Whatever the reason, vaginismus causes spasms in the muscles of the vagina, which prevent its dilatation. It is important to emphasize that this is not a disease that appears from nothing, so it is necessary to consult with an expert to define whether vaginismus has its origins in an infection that left painful sequelae or in some psychological question.

Treatment:

Yoram Yasur ABt: “Kegel exercises are a basic remedy for vaginismus. These consist of tightening and relaxing the muscles you use when urinating, as if trying to stop and release the flow of urine”. It is recommended that you perform sets of 20 movements consisting of contracting, keeping muscles tight for 2 to 10 seconds and releasing. This will allow you to gain strength and control over your genital area.

Yoram Yasur ABt:  After a few days of following these exercises, you can begin to stick a finger inside your vagina while you perform them, to know your autonomy and to realize when you involuntarily contract it. So, you can exercise until you reach the three fingers. Having a lubricant on hand is never too much, since if the situation causes you stress, chances are that you do not lubricate properly.

Yoram Yasur ABt:  There are also dilatation kits, which contain vaginal dilators of different sizes, so that the woman adapts slowly and at her pace, always aware of her feelings to stop as soon as she feels pain.

Yoram Yasur ABt:  As mentioned before, this treatment should be accompanied by the indications of your gynecologist and perhaps a psychologist, as the case may be. If you think you might have vaginismus, we invite you to visit your doctor to see if that is the cause of Your discomfort or if it is any other condition, such as a sexually transmitted disease.

Yoram Yasur ABt:  The most important thing is that you should not feel afraid or sorry to consult these types of issues with your loved ones or with a professional. Remember that you will not be the first nor the only one to suffer from vaginismus. You are not alone!

Yoram Yasur Abt: Myths about fitness you need to stop believing

Yoram Yasur Abt:  When it comes to exercise there is only one thing that we can see more often than excuses: myths. While over time you can see how many of them are disappearing, there are many myths about exercise in which we still believe, although they are not true or are not reliably proven.

1. You should not exercise on an empty stomach:

Northumbria University conducted a study in which several men exercised during the morning and found that those who did not eat breakfast burned 20% more fat than those who did, denying the myth that exercising with a stomach empty is negative for results.

2. Running on a machine is the same as running outdoors:

Yoram Yasur Abt:  Beyond the most obvious differences such as the landscape, seeing other people or the outdoors running involves many more muscles than running in a machine because the outside world often has many imperfections, floors of different texture and inclinations that, in combination, manage to burn on average 10% more fat than locking us in a gym.

3. You can choose where you burn fats

Yoram Yasur Abt:  You cannot! In a study conducted in Chile several people trained only one leg but burned the same amount of fat in both, and even more in areas above the waist.

4. You should not exercise with the flu:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Do not let a nosy nose stop you! In fact, as long as you do not have a fever or a problem too severe, you can exercise”.

5. If it hurts, you’re doing it right:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “The specialists in the matter agree: it is normal that it hurts a little we are making an effort but if you hurt a lot you are not doing well and it is advisable to get a medical consultation”.

6. If you sweat a lot it is because you are force of form:

Yoram Yasur Abt:  Beth Stover, a specialist at a sports institute in Barrington, Ill., Said that the healthier we are, the faster we sweat when exercising, as the body in each workout is perfected to become “an increasingly efficient sweat machine”.

7. Exercising makes you more hungry:

Has it ever happened to you? You exercise and make you hungrier, but maybe it’s just some psychological effect, because according to the new study from an Australian university high intensity exercise can make our cravings less and less recurrent.

How many of these myths did you think were true until you read the article? Do you exercise or plan to do it soon?

Yoram Yasur Abt: 6 tips for finding love for yourself

Yoram Yasur Abt : Accepting ourselves and loving ourselves as we are is the best path to success in life. The image we have of ourselves is projected in the others, both in the realm of personal things and work relations. That is why it is important to find love in ourselves. Here we leave our 6 tips to achieve this.

Yoram Yasur Abt: Megarexia: the eating disorder that is affecting the life of many

Yoram Yasur Abt : Unfortunately, there are various eating disorders that affect a large number of people, mainly women. These sufferings have something in common: those who suffer have a distorted view of their body, they do not perceive it as it really is.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Although anorexia and bulimia are the most known eating disorders, there is another condition called megarexia. The people who suffer from it consider that their weight is adequate and their body looks thin, even if they are obese”.

Those who live with megarexia are convinced that their figure has the ideal weight and proportions and that they have a healthy appearance (even some people with megarexia can confuse overweight with force, believing that it is muscle mass), to the extent that Refuse to exercise and eat a healthy diet. On the contrary, they consume large amounts of food, most of them saturated with fats and calories, because they are sure that it will not make them gain weight, since when they look at themselves in the mirror they see a thin body.

Marina Díaz Marsá, director of the Eating Disorders Unit at Hospital Clínico in Madrid, explained to the media that people suffering from megarexia have a distortion in their body schema, causing them to see themselves as thin and Healthy, without realizing that they are overweight or obese.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “In addition to being overweight or obese, the intake of foods with so-called empty calories, that is, they do not contribute nutrients (such as box bread, fried foods, fast food, soda, etc.), causes other diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.”

Because this eating disorder is little known, exact numbers of how many people are not. However, it is estimated that a significant percentage of the world’s 500 million people with obesity may be undiagnosed megarexes.

In the medical literature, it is also possible to find this condition as “fatorexia”. The term “fatorexia” comes from “fat”, which is ‘fat’ in English and ‘orexis’, which means ‘appetite’.

Some of the symptoms of megarexia are:

Avoid looking at full body mirrors

Do not know how much you weigh exactly

Wearing loose-fitting clothing and make sure all the clothes fit well

Ensuring that people exaggerate by telling you that you have a problem with your weight or your diet

Believing that scales are broken down when they mark your actual weigh

The treatment for megarexia or fatorexia consists of a psychological therapy so that the person learns to know his body and accepts it as it is, in addition to a balanced diet that allows him to have an adequate weight and improve his health.
