|The human gut surface area measures about the same as a regulation tennis court. Not only does it constitute the area responsible for the breakdown and digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, but also until recently, its function as the major reservoir for the microbiome has been little appreciated. The interaction of the microbiome within the oral cavity, the stomach, small bowel, and the colon now informs us that rather than being a digestive processing center, the gut in reality is the “Sixth Sense,” receiving and interpreting information from bacteria, viruses, plant polyphenols, helminthes, and fungi. Moreover, the neurons and immune cells lining and literally protruding into the lumen of the gut, process and interpret the bacterial and viral signals, are educated by them and in turn, modulate and control not only the gut metabolism, but have direct and indirect effects on emotional states, brain mitochondrial function, and neuron survival. Indeed the gut is the portal and controller of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS. The modern gastroenterologist is now at the forefront of managing these conditions as never before. How the Gastroenterologist accomplishes these feats will be discussed.|
