Gut Microbiome

There is research explaining how the Gut Microbiome can control almost every system in our body and not just the digestive system. Most people think the Gut microbiome is only responsible for the healthy digestion. However we now know that our Microbiome controls almost every system in our body. This is very interesting because it points towards the fact that most diseases are originating from the gut.

We now know that we need a good balance of all the microorganisms in our body. For example, we have beneficial and potentially pathogenic Bacteria in our gut. At any point if the balance between these bacteria is altered, it can lead to disease state. 

If you would like to know more about your microbiome, please contact us and we can order and interpret advanced functional stool test and determine what can be done to improve the status of your microbiome.

Our next article will be on how healthy diet can modulate the microbiome
