Let’s talk about hunger and bacteria. I’ve read so many studies now on this topic, and it’s so exciting to see that many bacteria are involved in stimulating appetite or decreasing appetite.
Research using DNA sequencing of bacteria has begun to reveal the connection between the microbiome, appetite, and satiety (or lack thereof).
Common bacteria like Escherichia coli (E. coli) can produce proteins that increase or decrease appetite.
I’ve always maintained that the human gut is a lot like a garden. If you disrupt the balance in the garden, problems will surface.

I keep my whole garden as an ecosystem. When people visit my garden, they’re astounded at all the insects. I’m creating an ecologically balanced system.
Balance is just as essential in the human gut. When we achieve gut health, you won’t have the gas, bloating, or problems with appetite and satiety. Next thing you know, you will have lost ten pounds without much effort. It’s because you are living according to the laws of nature.
When you work with Mother Nature, she’ll take care of you. If you flaunt those laws and pump chemicals and antibiotics into your body, you’re going to run into problems.
Modern science needs to take a long, hard look at nature. It’s hard to ignore the importance of protecting your body’s beneficial bacteria when you take in the lessons from a garden.
