Understanding the Microbiome: a virtual class
Acne, allergies, autoimmune diseases, anxiety, bowel disease, migraines, excessive weight … all these are have one thing in common- an unhealthy microbiome.
Digestive health is intricately connected to virtually every aspect of your health. Have you heard of the gut-brain connection?
“Gut-Brain-Skin Axis” theory is a connection that is understood to be a two-way street: emotional states can alter your normal intestinal microflora, which can increase intestinal permeability (leaky gut) and contribute to systemic inflammation. And vice versa—your microflora can influence your emotional states because these vitally important “good” bacteria produce neurotransmitters, or chemical messengers that play a role in mood and cognitive function.
Did you know your microbiome controls how many calories you absorb from the food you eat? It also impacts food cravings. Anxiety and depression. And the release of hormones.
