What is the Microbiome, How Does it Impact Health and What Can You Do About It? A VIDEO Interview
The gut is the largest immune organ in the body and contributes to so many aspects of our health. The gut microbiome is made up of the microbes which colonize the digestive tract. These bacteria and other microbes play essential roles in maintaining human physiology and are essential for the maintenance of human health, influencing everything from hormones to mood to metabolism to overall inflammation in the body.
We know that many aspects influence the balance of the bacteria in our guts. To keep your bacteria balanced and healthy, focus on:
- Removing processed foods and sugars
- Including naturally fermented foods such as raw sauerkraut and kombucha
- Supporting digestion with prebiotic foods and fiber such as from artichokes, garlic, turmeric, leeks and asparagus
- Practicing meaningful stress management
I am excited to share this interview I recently did with Mari J. Hahn, about the many ways that the microbiome impacts our health and the ways in which our culture relates to digestive health and the microbiome. You will also be introduced to how these issues specifically impact women and their health.
