Did you know that 70-80% of your immune system is found in your gut? Your gut is home to trillions of bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites that make up your unique flora known as microbiome. The complex colony when in good balance benefits your health in positive ways.
The gut lining contains a thin wall of cells that works as a barrier between what stays in your intestine and what passes into the bloodstream. Behind that barrier are cells linked to your immune system that are constantly sensing what is in your gut.
Unfortunately if we are stressed or have been on certain medications or have poor diet the gut microbiome loses its balance. This disharmony, known as dysbiosis, causes multitude of health issues such as bloating, fatigue, skin disorders such as pigmentation, acne, auto immune disorders, depression, weight gain and more.
Diet can play a big part in bringing back the balance and harmony. Sometimes we also need a little help to bring the gut health back by reducing the load of parasites, increasing the good bacteria and soothing the gut lining.
