What even is a Microbiome?

This lecture includes information on leaky gut (AKA intestinal permeability) but specifically highlights the amazing role that our gut microbiome has on virtually every aspect of our health!

This is revolutionary information and was only recently unlocked by researchers 10 years ago, thanks to advances in genetic sequencing. We now know that our gut microbiome determines the health of our immune system, our nervous system, our emotions, our cravings, our skin, our heart health, how our hormones function and even turns our disease causing genes on or off. That is just amazing!

This lecture focuses on the foods and supplements to add or remove to support this incredible master organ to support our best health. This lecture is a must for anyone interested in improving their symptoms for neurological illness, autoimmune disease, chronic pain, brain fog, anxiety, depression, skin disorders or weight gain struggles.

You will be amazed to learn just how critical a balanced microbiome is to re-creating your best health and how sensitive it is to certain foods and habits.
