Tvam muladhara sthitosi nityam |
त्वं मूलाधार स्थितोऽसि नित्यं।
Lord Ganesha! You always dwell in muladhara chakra!
मूलाधार : शक्ति Center near Gut & anus : Abode of मरुत गण (Microbes) and their leader गणपति
It does not only control microbes in GUT but of entire body.
He is the lord of muladhara chakra. In other words, he rules our microbial flora (मरुत गण) and make sure only body-friendly मरुत गण resides in the abode.
मरुत गण (Microbes) : गण पति (Ganesha) : गण (Citizens) & पति (Protector) live together @ Muladhara
Awakening गण पति शक्ति is critical for maintaining health (which is critical for self-realization). Only he can protect and act as gatekeeper of Muladhara (Gut) so that body is kept protected from pathogens & aasuri shakti.
Here are two interesting researchers focuses on Muladhara for cancer-cause and cancer recovery.
Cleveland Clinic Researchers Find Link Between Bacterial Imbalances and Breast Cancer
In a newly published study, Cleveland Clinicresearchers have uncovered differences in the bacterial composition of breast tissue of healthy women vs. women with breast cancer. The research team has discovered for the first time that healthy breast tissue contains more of the bacterial species Methylobacterium, a finding which could offer a new perspective in the battle against breast cancer.
Bacteria that live in the body, known as the microbiome, influence many diseases.
Most research has been done on the “gut” microbiome, or bacteria in the digestive tract. Researchers have long suspected that a “microbiome” exists within breast tissue and plays a role in breast cancer but it has not yet been characterized. The research team has taken the first step toward understanding the composition of the bacteria in breast cancer by uncovering distinct microbial differences in healthy and cancerous breast tissue.
“To my knowledge, this is the first study to examine both breast tissue and distant sites of the body for bacterial differences in breast cancer,” said co-senior author Charis Eng, M.D., Ph.D., chair of Cleveland Clinic’s Genomic Medicine Institute and director of the Center for Personalized Genetic Healthcare. “Our hope is to find a biomarker that would help us diagnose breast cancer quickly and easily. In our wildest dreams, we hope we can use microbiomics right before breast cancer forms and then prevent cancer with probiotics or antibiotics.”
Published online in Oncotarget on Oct. 5, 2017, the study examined the tissues of 78 patients who underwent mastectomy for invasive carcinoma or elective cosmetic breast surgery. In addition, they examined oral rinse and urine to determine the bacterial composition of these distant sites in the body.
Good-guy bacteria helps in cancer therapies
Researchers found he had the beneficial gut bacteria and suspect this microbiome contributed to the outcome. As a group, patients who responded well to the immunotherapy had three specific bacteria:
- Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
- Faecalibacterium prausnitzii
- Holdemania filiformis
All three are common normal flora in the human intestinal tract.
After identifying the link, researchers looked for a potential reason for the association between the helper bacteria and immunotherapy effectiveness. “Is it something the bacteria are making? We examined metabolites in these subjects and found the strongest correlation between anacardic acid, present in cashews and mangoes, and the beneficial bacteria,” Dr. Koh said.
Researchers plan to follow up on the current research, which appears in the journal Neoplasia, with larger clinical studies.
