If you've been reading this blog for some times, you know we live in the underground, meaning, we talk about the things that most don't and go the places most won't. Whether it's talking about sunning your balls to supercharge your T-levels or how $1 for every $3 you spend on medical services, goes to administration things like paperwork and billing.
Needless to say, we have our thoughts on the industry. I mean, their negligence is the 3rd leading cause of death every year. Not to mention it isn't exactly far-fetched to think they'll disregard the Hippocratic oath (think Tuskegee experiments or the whole beer flu thing). Finally, we can't ignore the biggest elephant in the room, the conflict of interest that deems curing you as not very profitable.
With all that being said, you might be of the opinion that the game is all about money and profits. And while money and profits may play a huge role, I would like you to consider another idea. What if the healthcare system had much more nefarious intent. What if there end goal was to control you and in specific, control your mind, thoughts, and actions through the administration of healthcare.
Stick with me here, over the course of the month, we'll be giving a deep dive into this theory over a series of posts and an e-book (that's just how deep and serious it is). I promise, this is going to be one of the most eye-opening learnings of your life, buckle your chinstraps men.

Take a second to take our anonymous poll:
The 2nd Brain
Ever gotten "butterflies in your stomach" or been told to "just go with your gut decision"? What were you feeling when you had butterflies in your stomach? You were likely nervous or anxious about something. How about about making a gut decision? How does your gut know what to do? Do you think this is a coincidence...? Stick with me here men.
Did you know that you have a "2nd brain"? Furthermore, did you know that the human body is composed of more bacteria than cells? Known as the enteric nervous system, the second brain is essentially a bunch of neurons (the fundamental unit of your brain/nervous system) in the walls of your gut (from the end of your esophagus to the anus). There are more neurons in your gut than in your spinal cord or peripheral nervous system (the systems that control involuntary bodily functions, gland regulation, muscle movement, and relays information from the eyes, skin, and ears).
Secondly, the collection of these bacteria within your gut are called your gut microbiota. Previously, we thought all the gut did was help us digest. Today, we know that this system is much more powerful, because it's quite similar to your brain and how it works. Not to mention, both "brains" speak to one another through a direct communication pathway.
Now that you know, that you have a "2nd brain in your gut", let's talk about the implications of this.
How the 2nd Brain Impacts You
Scientific America describes the 2nd brain's impact as "that the little brain in our innards, in connection with the big one in our skulls, partly determines our mental state and plays key roles in certain diseases throughout the body". Here are the major areas of impact:
Most people know that the gut is responsible for breaking down food, absorbing nutrients, and expelling of waste materials. A key point to remember here is the absorption of nutrients, meaning poor gut health also could mean that you aren't getting your daily nutrients required....absolutely HUGE. We'll dive deeper into this in later posts, don't forget this.
Well-Being & Mood:
Secondly, and equally as importantly, our state of mind is arguably controlled by your gut. A UCLA School of Medicine Professor David Geffen quoted a surprising study in which scientists were shocked to learn that about 90 percent of the fibers in the primary visceral nerve, the vagus, carry information from the gut to the brain and not the other way around. This mean's your gut has a certain level of power and precedence over your brain. It could also be argued that your gut controls your brain.
How many of you knew that you had a second brain? My guess it not many. How many of you knew how important your gut is to your overall health, physically, emotionally, and psychologically? My guess is an even smaller portion. How many of you knew that your gut (the network of bacteria) could potentially be controlling your brain? My guess is almost none.
Before you move forward, take a second and think to yourself about why this is common knowledge and sit back and think about the question I posed above:
What if the medical systems end goal was to control you and in specific, control your mind, thoughts, and actions through the administration of healthcare?
Or maybe I'm just crazy...
WRAPPING IT UP
While this was a short post, hopefully it was quite insightful for you all reading this. Break out your tin foil hats, in the next post, we're going to switch gears and talk about the how your "2nd brain" is under attack and why nothing is being done about it.
