This is season of Maruts. Microbes. Rain showers abundant of Prana. Originated from various corners of the sea. With infinite different forms and past memories and Sanskars. (Yes, water do carry memories and Sanskars of its travel and so do all elements).

Since it is season of Maruts. There are chances that weak humans get trapped under these new combinations of Prana, fell sick and blame microbes for all their fault! 😀

So this post for positive attitude towards Prana.

Microbial biomass exceeds the total animal biomass. I am = I + M = I + Maruts = I + Microbes.

So who is host and who is guest? Your textbook taught you that, you are host and microbes live at your mercy.

In reality, it is total reverse case. They are host and we are guest. In any infectious disease, problem is not with bacteria and virus but WE the ill-behaved guests.

If we ill-behave (use wifi, use mobile, use pesticides, use antibiotics etc), host (microbial biomass that hosts us i.e. Maruts) has all rights to kill us.

If we behave (live life as per mother Nature’s rules and by maintaining synergy with all organisms) well, they build our life with all pleasures.

Instead of killing rich sources of Prana, improve your immunity. Do fasting. Eat moderately. Do not it for taste. Fix meal timings. Fix sleep timings. During monsoon, do not take extra mental stress. Focus your mind by jap, tap, dhyana and Sadhna. Detoxify mind and body. See the magic. You will not fell sick for entire year! Maruts will take care of you! 🙂

The function of our microbiota: who is out there and what do they do?

Current meta-omics developments provide a portal into the functional potential and activity of the intestinal microbiota. The comparative and functional meta-omics approaches have made it possible to get a molecular snap shot of microbial function at a certain time and place. To this end, metagenomics is a DNA-based approach, metatranscriptomics studies the total transcribed RNA, metaproteomics focuses on protein levels and metabolomics describes metabolic profiles. Notably, the metagenomic toolbox is rapidly expanding and has been instrumental in the generation of draft genome sequences of over 1000 human associated microorganisms as well as an astonishing 3.3 million unique microbial genes derived from the intestinal tract of over 100 European adults. Remarkably, it appeared that there are at least 3 clusters of co-occurring microbial species, termed enterotypes, that characterize the intestinal microbiota throughout various continents. The human intestinal microbial metagenome further revealed unique functions carried out in the intestinal environment and provided the basis for newly discovered mechanisms for signaling, vitamin production and glycan, amino-acid and xenobiotic metabolism. The activity and composition of the microbiota is affected by genetic background, age, diet, and health status of the host. In its turn the microbiota composition and activity influence host metabolism and disease development. Exemplified by the differences in microbiota composition and activity between breast- as compared to formula-fed babies, healthy and malnourished infants, elderly and centenarians as compared to youngsters, humans that are either lean or obese and healthy or suffering of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). In this review we will focus on our current understanding of the functionality of the human intestinal microbiota based on all available metagenome, metatranscriptome, and metaproteome results
