Body image changes are associated with lower levels of inflammation and a better recovery from an intestinal illness, according to research from the University of California.
The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, found people who undergo cosmetic surgery to improve their body image reported less inflammation, and that their gut function improved more.
The findings suggest that people can reduce the risk of serious illness by changing their body-image behaviour.
“This is the first time that we’ve been able to show that body image changes can improve gut health,” study researcher Sarah Kress told BBC News.
“We’re talking about the ability to change the way people see their bodies.”
Kress, a professor of integrative health at UC Davis, said it was not clear how the changes could benefit people who had suffered a food poisoning or had been exposed to an intestinal infection.
But she said it would be important to investigate further.
The results are consistent with the findings of previous studies, which have shown people who are more open about their health are more likely to recover from infection and to be able to return to work, she said.
Body image is often linked to self-esteem, and there are many factors that affect it, including the way in which we perceive ourselves.
“I would expect that there are some positive effects on the gut,” she said, “but it is a matter of interpretation.”
The study was part of a broader study looking at the link between body image and gastrointestinal diseases.
The researchers recruited 100 healthy volunteers for the study, and then assessed them for two months before and after the surgery.
They then measured their gut microbiome, which is a collection of microbes living in the gut and helps the body detect food and waste.
The team also found that people who took part in the study were more likely than others to report improvement in their gut and that these changes were associated with a reduced risk of illness.
The research is a joint project between UC Davis and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), which funded the study.
“Body image is a very important part of people’s lives,” said lead author Laura A. Jones, a UC Davis graduate student in integrative and integrative medicine.
“The study shows that, if you have a problem with your gut, then body image can help you feel better.” “

What is a gastric bypass?
The gastric sleeve, or pouch, is a small opening in the stomach that serves as a barrier to the stomach.
It’s inserted into the stomach, and the hole is filled with a bag of food, usually a cheese sandwich or fruit.
In some cases, people with gastric disorders have to have a gastrostomy, which involves opening up the pouch.
The pouch may also be used to store medicine, such as a medicine for the heart or kidneys.
What are the health risks of cosmetic surgery?
There is a growing body of research linking cosmetic surgery with adverse effects on health, including cancer and cardiovascular disease.
The University of Washington in Seattle found that patients who underwent cosmetic surgery had significantly higher rates of osteoporosis and low-grade inflammation in the pancreas.
In a review published last year in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers looked at the health of more than 5,000 people undergoing cosmetic surgery, and found they were at higher risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
It is not known exactly how the procedure affected the immune system.
The procedure can also cause severe inflammation and scarring in the skin and eyes, leading to severe and potentially life-threatening complications.
It can also lead to a severe infection.
The surgery is generally considered safe and may even be recommended as a first-line treatment for people with Crohn’s disease.
But a study published in 2016 in the British Journal of Dermatology found that those who underwent the procedure had significantly lower rates of infection, and were more prone to developing skin cancers, such a melanoma.
Cosmetic surgery may also increase the risk for breast cancer.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends the following precautions before and during cosmetic surgery: Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothing and wearing tight, revealing clothes.
Avoid having any open wounds or scarring on your face or body.
Wear a protective mask.
Make sure you get regular pap smears or skin tests, and always wear gloves when using a laser or skin-reading machine.
