You have a unique gut microbiome signature as personal as a fingerprint.

Your microbiome is a microscopic world of trillions of tiny microbes flourishing in your gut. Unseen by the naked key, these microbes are your body’s powerful agents of change. They digest your food, regulate your appetite, control your metabolism, orchestrate your mood,  and even guide how your genes are expressed.
 
They are key to whether you feel bright and focused, or foggy and distracted; whether your skin glows with radiant eyes, and whether you feel light and free. 

They sustain your gut, making sure you properly  digest your food and get all the nourishment you need.  They produce vitamins, minerals AND natural antibiotics.

You body is more bacteria than human.

These amazing microbes make up 90% of your cells! Imagine that. The vast majority of the cells within your body are not human. Your gut holds an entirely separate ecology that is fully intertwined with yours. When these microbes flourish, you flourish. When they struggle, you struggle. When they crave sugar, so do you. And when they work at their best, your body does too.

 

It all starts with the gut.

Maybe you’re feeling blocked, or unable to keep things under control. When your gut microbiome is not in flow, your digestion patterns can cause constipation, diarrhea – or a combination of the two! With ineffective stool transitions – too slow or swift – your body can struggle, unable to efficiently absorb nutrients from the food you eat. As a result, other symptoms may develop. 

Western lifestyles have left too many of us with episodic and irritated bowels. Look to nature, and its clear elimination is meant to be effortless. What a party pooper: who wants to have to deal with abdominal pain, cramps, bloating, gas, as well as inconsistent and erratic bowel habits?!  

Not only does this force you to place limits on your eating and diet, the social and emotional distress slowly takes its toll.

You are what your gut microbes eat.

Be it IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) or a collection of other frustrating manifestations,  balancing your microbiome is the key to eliminating symptoms you may have  never even connected to your gut and the way you eat.  Everything from fatigue, food allergies, anxiety, depression, brain fog, weight gain, acne, eczema, and even joint and muscle pain are associated with the microbiome.  

Understanding your microbiome can enlighten you on ways to live that have the power to prevent major illnesses, including obesity, diabetes and heart disease – to name a few! 

Ensure your gut’s integrity, by sustaining a lifestyle that supports it, and you establish a gut ecosystem that allows you to more effortlessly eliminate all waste and toxic byproducts.
