Always Hungry? Bacteria In Your Gut Can Manipulate Your Appetite

November 5, 2019

Eric Bakker here. Yeah, it’s the naturopath all the way from
down the bottom of the world, New Zealand. Eric Becker is my name. Thank you for tuning in. If you’re new to my channel, please check
out some of the playlist. There are a lot of videos on this channel
and we’ve been working on this channel now for about five years and I’m quite proud of
it. There’s a lot more to come, so stay tuned,
especially if you’re like cooking and eating and lifestyle and stuff like that. Going to do a lot of stuff next year, like
my clinical practice, ceases end of November, 2019 and I’m going to take a long break with
Tracy and then when we come back we’re going to be doing some really cool stuff next year. We’ve also got some travel in mind and I want
to do some travel stuff with people too. My mom was very interested in travel and cooking
and so am I. So I hope to do something from some crazy
countries like Vietnam or places like that. So it’s time for me to step out and do stuff
instead of sitting on my butt. Right. 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, in making a person feel full or empty. But finally, finally, finally, lots of research
and particularly when we look at the gene sequencing, how we can advance DNA studies
on bacteria, and like advanced and detailed experiments on mice and rats and extrapolate
to humans, we started to see huge connections on the balance of the microbiome and also
on the person’s ability to want to eat food or not want to eat food. Was actually noticing common bacteria like
Escherichia coli or E. Coli, which everybody has. They’re starting to see now that bacteria
like this can actually produce proteins, which can stimulate or decrease appetite, but it
all depends on the done to the bacteria and the gut. To me, as I’ve always maintained, the human
gut is no different from a garden. Everything happens in balance. If you disrupt that balance, you create a
problem. It’s one of the reasons I never use any chemicals
whatsoever in my garden and never have for decades. And the reason I don’t want to do that is
because I want to keep the whole yard as an ecosystem. When people visit my garden, they’re astounded
at the insect life. In fact, I’m also introducing some New Zealand
insects to the garden that are quite unique, and I’ll show you a photo of these insects
and you’ll probably find them quite freaky if you live outside of New Zealand. The reason I’m doing this is to create ecology,
to create a balanced system. Let me look, here it is here. Here’s a picture of a lady holding what’s
called a weta. They can actually see the weta here. See these big kind of like really huge, crazy
looking creatures here. Let me hold it back a bit. So these insects are big flightless crickets,
indigenous to New Zealand. Now I want to get them in the garden because
they really help also to break down leaf litter, but as per usual, if there’s any rats [inaudible]
or ferrets, we got to trap and get them out. We don’t really have a problem. What am I talking to you about all this for? It’s about balance. I love getting insects in my garden because
I know that they form a very powerful part of the ecosystem and they keep the natural
or the pests under control. So when people look at my plants, they don’t
see bugs eating stuff because I’ve got wasps, wasps also predate on these bugs. Now in your gut, it’s no different. When you’ve put the balance of the ecosystem
happening there, you get really nice healthy levels of Escherichia coli that start to behave
the way that these bacteria should behave. They don’t have big egos like some politicians
have. Okay? They stay under control. And this means also that the key hormones
produced in your gut are much more regulated and balanced, because bacteria make many different
types of proteins and other factors which can manipulate hormones. We’ve even found that bacteria can directly
influence neurons in the brain through very complex pathways, but the balance is extremely
important. If you’re always hungry and you can’t work
out why, make sure that you have got no yeast overgrowths in your gut or no massive big
small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. If you bloat and fat and a bowel problems
and are hungry a lot, particularly, you really want to get onto the gut and tame this beast. Okay, so can you swallow crickets and bugs
and put natural predators down there? Yes, you can. Okay. You can eat good food. You can eat lots of fresh produce because
this fresh produce will stimulate the production of lots of bacteria in your gut many different
times, and lo and behold, you may even do something crazy and eat food you’ve never
eaten before and encourage other bacteria back that have may long have been killed off,
right? Many people worry a bit, a big population
decline in their digestive system or bacteria. But don’t worry. Okay. Because there’re always bacteria there and
they’re usually tiny little pockets of bacteria that want to come back if they’re coaxed out
of the hiding hole by food. So by constantly eating good food, by understanding
the principles of stress, sleeping more, eating better protein, more natural fats, drinking
water, all of those things you can do, you’re going to get the natural balance back. All right? And that means that you’re going to appetite
control. And that means also you’re not having any
bloating, no farting, normal bowel motions, all that kind of stuff that I try and really
get happening in patients. And you can get it to. And when you finally get to that point, you’ll
think to yourself, “Oh, I’ve lost 10 pounds. That wasn’t hard and didn’t do much for it.” And that’s because you are living according
to the laws in nature. And when you work with Mother Nature, she’s
going to really take care of you. But when you flaunt those laws and pump chemicals
and antibiotics like me spraying glyphosate all over place and I’ve got a neighbor two
doors up, everything sprayed, it’s gross. When I go and visit his garden, it’s a terrible
garden. It’s just literally like a graveyard. You can’t see anything there. There’s just sprays. Everything. That to me is like a video I just did on intravenous
antibiotics. You’re going to create this disgusting situation
in here and then wonder why modern science can’t fix you up. Modern science needs to take a long, hard
look at nature. That’s why. Thanks for tuning in. Click on the link if you want my free weight

    Can damaged pancreas stop the good bacteria growing back despite eating correctly and taking your canxida products like restore? I think I have a damaged pancreas and my stool pH is 5.5 thanks

    Im feeling hungry more often. I have a hernia that is giving me a hard time. I changed my diet and its a little better. But i still have problems going to the bathroom. Im hopefully gonna have surgery soon to fix the hernia. Hopefully i can make it through that. Im 47 and have high bp and problems with my lungs and very bad back.

    I struggle with E. coli based UTI infections and I’ve come to realize it’s probably because ever since I was 2 my mom had me in and out of the doctors which prescribed me anabiotic’s and steroids. I 23 now and of course when I had my daughter I was strep B positive and labored for 34 hours of which the doctors in the US, their protocol is to give a laboring mother every four hours a dose of penicillin. And two weeks later I had the worst E. coli infection I have had since I was 2. They insisted it wasn’t the penicillin… I knew it was… so when I found out I was pregnant with my son I decided I would have him at home and I’d never step foot in a hospital again. Things went perfectly at home and now almost a year later I am excited to get my body healthy for the first time in my life!! Do you have any advice for people like me who was raised on literal garbage food and antibiotics and steroids? What can I do to get my gut healthy for the first time? Of course I’m 160 pounds overweight …no surprise (I also took the lie of birth control pills and the depo shot of wihich I ballooned put on that as well) I’ve been trying to eat better these past 3 years but I need to commit to all fresh and no sugar

    It's great to hear you have future plans for travel and cooking.
    I really like that you're sending out more emails now to.
