As I read more psychology on mind control, I try to get some of my control back.

When I first heard of cognitive dissonance - I worked hard to avoid it.
When I first read about Anti-fragility/stoicism - I worked hard to practice stoicism in my daily life.
When I first heard about the placebo effect - I worked hard to talk to my "MIND" whenever I was being irrationally worried about my health.
When I first heard about the positive effects of music - I enthusiastically increased the hours I spent listening and dancing to good music.

My search for understanding and taking back control of my mind has led me to where I am today. But it looks like there is more and more research indicating that our mind is controlled by our gut bacteria. 

This interview has opened my mind - more than all the other material I have encountered about the importance of gut bacteria. The gentleman in the interview states that all chronic illness are caused by an imbalance of gut bacteria. There is research even connecting it to curing type 1 diabetes.... Could it be?


So I have now decided to follow @brandonwilson and ordering Viome.

The journey continues...

    Wow I need to watch this guy's video this weekend. Because to cure T1D ? How does that work? T1D is about the physiological impossibiliity to produce insulin due to the absence of Beta cells in the pancreas. The only way his argument would work is if he states that the pancreatic beta cells are in fact not dead forever but can be regenerated if the body is healthy enough.

    Right now the common medical conception is that once they're dead they're dead. So this is interesting.

    I do think that the gut is like the 'habit-organ/system' of the body. Just like how habits are how one achieves great good or bad, the body only achieves health or disease through the gut.

    You work in software so you should know. There is no way ... wow i'm just going to write this in a post, because this is getting tooooooo long. And also I want other people to get a chance to read it and I feel like comments don't get read as much unless you tag someone in it.

      @abrahamKim - There are many pursuing the cure avenue. Like most auto immune conditions, the actual cause isn't definitely known - the beta cells dying is more a symptom of whatever is the actual cause. I have read a lot of research that claim that it could be viral, missing immunoglobulin, missing nutirents, epigentics - etc. But an 84 year old Dr I follow - Dr Bernstein discovered after getting some immunogloulin that after over 70 years with type 1, he sporadically started to make some insulin.
      There is a lot of noise in claims but this one was the latest research that is making me think that a virus could be the cause -

      Very exciting stuff I agree.
      Write that post!

    @keni Ok now I will need to listen to that interview. I think the microbiome is definitely worth some attention.
