How To Improve Your Gut Health

All of those signs I’d ignored about my body started to talk loudly and I was reminded about those two major health scares I’d already experienced in my life and realised I needed to find a solution. During another women’s health check-up I went to see a different gynaecologist. Pro-biotics are a kind of catch all for putting the bacteria back in your gut. If you change your gut bacteria, you’re basically reprogramming your weight, shape etc. A lack of gut bacteria diversity can lead to allergies. 

Midwestern University Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine studied the have-they/haven’t-they got an appendix on over 500 mammals; and although it’s not detrimental on your health to have lost your appendix, keeping it is one of the best immunity superpowers mammals have. I should say at this point that I’d nailed this gut flora down to a specific strain that, as my gynae had instructed was best for women. If you want to know what the super amazing strain of gut bacteria I’m using is LCR-35, found some 50 years ago in Aurielles, France via the wonders of cheesemaking, or so I’m told. What with this new gut flora growing and giving me all of this amazing energy and me being able to get into clothes I’ve given up for dead I wanted to maintain this healthy profile. What I love about my strain of gut flora is how I paired it with giving up sugar, accidentally you understand and BINGO! 

By being my own guinea pig I found a way to finally take control of my body. Healthy food options, taking care of myself and good gut bacteria choices are my top priority. Kelly has kindly prepared a gut health checklist for us! Click the image below to get it.

Factsheet: Miscellaneous health problems in guinea pigs

Intestinal parasites are usually not a significant problem in guinea pigs. A protozoan parasite may cause coccidiosis in guinea pigs. Pinworm infections of guinea pigs usually go unnoticed. Yes, guinea pigs cannot manufacture vitamin C and must receive an adequate supply of it from outside food sources. Adequate levels of vitamin C are always included in the formulation of pelleted diets for guinea pigs. 

Thinning of the hair is a common problem of female guinea pigs that have been repeatedly bred. Hair loss is frequently noted among juvenile guinea pigs at weakened state at or around the time of weaning. Young guinea pigs are usually more susceptible than adults and is generally characterised by patchy hair loss on the face, nose and ears. Ringworm can be transmitted from guinea pigs to people. Guinea pigs are especially susceptible to sun or heat stroke, particularly those that are overweight and/or heavily furred. 

Heat-stressed guinea pigs should be immediately sprayed with or bathed in cool water. A continuous light mist or spray of water and/or a fan operating over a container of ice can be directed at a guinea pig within its enclosure to lower the air temperature, whether the guinea pig is housed indoors or outdoors.

Potbelly PIGS!!!!!! – The Farm Barbie – Real Food for Health & Wellness

At least, for the past 3 years, every June we get pigs. There’s been Potbelly pigs, Berkshire piglets, turkeys and rabbits crossing our paths. This is how we became the proud owners of 2 potbelly pigs. The caller wanted to know if he wanted 2 potbelly pigs. Now, we are the proud owners of 2 enormous, micro-mini, potbelly pigs that were not supposed to get over 40 pounds. 

I don’t think anyone told the pigs this information. I don’t know if it’s possible to put a potbelly pig on a diet and shrink them back down to 40 pounds. Male potbelly pigs who are fully-intact constantly foam at the mouth. I know this because I have a fully-intact, male, potbelly pig who looks like he has rabies and I have been panicking over it since he showed up. After a few searches, discussions and investigations I’ve discovered that foam drooling out of the sides of a male pig’s mouth is just part of being a male pig. 

She is beautiful, round, wiry and everything you want in a female, potbelly pig. The gestation period for potbelly pigs is 3 months, 3 weeks, & 3 days.

Is guinea pig butt swollen is it constipated

Before I can explain what that means, I need to explain certain anatomy of a guinea pig. It traps the soft poop pellets that a guinea pig needs to eat to regain some of it’s B-vitamins while the harder poop that has no nutritional benefit to the guinea pig are pooped out of the rectum. As a guinea pig ages, the skin of the perineal sac becomes stretched out, making it extremely hard to the guinea pig to expel these droppings. They build up in the perineal sac and can plug up the anus, making digestion difficult and making the guinea pig vitamin B deficient because he can no longer eat these benificial droppings. You will have to clean out the impaction yourself as your cavy cannot do this on his own.
