Gut Health: Part 1

We are super organisms!
Gut Health: Part 1

We have over 100 trillion microbial bacteria living on and in our bodies.
For every human cell there is 10 resident microbes, making us more microbial than human.
You could say we are super organisms!

Our lifestyles and standard american diets are "starving" our good micro biome in our intestines.
The overindulgence of bad diets( processed foods, junk food, sugar, meat and dairy, etc.) are depleting the good bacteria that keeps us healthy.  In the process, it encourages the overgrowth of the wrong bacteria. The resulting imbalance makes us prone to disease, obesity, and negatively affects our metabolism, hormones and cravings. Even our immunity and genes our affected.

Processed foods, sugar(not fruit) etc. all cause inflammation and negative effects on our bodies.  
Chronic inflammation is involved in diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer and much more. This type of food serves as "fertilizer" for pathogenic microorganisms and yeast, causing them to multiply rapidly.

For optimum health, a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods along with cultured or fermented foods,
which are high in probiotics is best.
