Entering the Era of ‘Vibrational Cosmetics’ – Connecting the skin-gut-brain axis of the microbiome and the host for achieving rejuvenation
In the stressful modern world more and more people are turning to find healing from nature. A collection of healing methods in different ancient traditions and practice of medicine that believe in nature’s energy as a source of healing, form the basis of Vibrational Medicine, or vibrational healing. The concept of “Prana” originating in the Vedas, ancient Indian texts, describes how Nature’s “life force” animates all living things and can be harnessed to heal the body. A shift into the age of self-actualization and after scientifically understanding the strong skin-gut -brain axis of the microbiome, it calls for a more serious insight to a new concept of energizing through beauty – “Vibrational Cosmetics”.
HOW DOES THE MICROBIOME SCIENCE SHOW CONNECTIVITY IN MIND BODY AND SKIN?
The current concepts of microbiome- host interaction through the immune system gives us much insight into the connectivity of the brain, the gut and the skin (1,2).
The established axis communicates with the neuro-humoral and neuroendocrine systems that eventually result in systemic tissue changes in the host (3-5). Several scientific papers by Denda et al (6,7) have explained neuro-endocrine pathways of the skin by which it influences the mind and have labeled the organ as the “third brain”, second to the gut. An established connection with the concept of the surface microbiome only reinforces the deeper connectivity of the brain and gut to the topical application of any cosmetic (8). In a previous publication the author discusses the connection of the skin-gut brain axis through the immune system of the host, and how because of this connectivity, there is a valuable role of natural ingredients that can affect this axis. Going into the depth of the host immune physiology and its relation to microbiome is beyond the scope of this commentary article however the author strongly enco ...
