Headaches? Seizures? Then look to your gut image

The health of our gut can affect the health of our brain. The type of bacteria in our gut determine our risk of stroke, seizures or even headaches, new research has discovered.

The bacteria particularly influence the progress of a disease in the brain and spinal cord that creates brittle blood vessels. The disease, known as cavernous angiomas (CA) or cerebral cavernous malformations, is directly linked to the bacteria in our gut, researchers from the University of Chicago have discovered.

They analysed stool samples from 122 CA patients and compared them with those from healthy people; the CA patients had more gram-negative bacteria, and three types of bacteria seemed to be more prevalent.

First look at your patient's gut health if he suffers from strokes or seizures, the researchers recommend.
