How you make and keep your microbiome healthy.


What are biomes? Teeming bacteria, viruses, and fungi live and thrive in nooks and crannies throughout a typically healthy human body. There are much more of “them” than there are of “us.” In fact, there are nine cells of this “foreign” microbial life for every one of your own cells. These microbes reside in pockets metaphorically referred to as internal “rain forests” or “hidden zoos”—swarming with activity and sending signals to your brain and other tissues, greatly influencing how health unfolds. These pockets of microbial life are called “biomes.” The most well-known biome occupies the warm, moist, nutrient-rich large intestine,known as [...]

These may be okay for a short term while the root cause of why they are ill [...]

Five Ways Good Gut Bacteria Stay Good By Devaki Lindsey Berkson


How do we tend the garden of our intestinal bugs so they stay healthy and thus so do we? Oxford University researchers have proposed a clever answer. They say that Mother Nature made good bacteria "sticky". This way they stick together deep inside your intestinal tract, and don’t wander across the gut wall or “get lost”. How does that happen? The immune system lives inside the gut “wall”. The gut immune system produces highly adhesive molecules. These are called immunoglobulins (specifically 'IgA'). These are antibodies that coat the bacteria inside your gut and in essence, purposely make the good gut bacteria [...]
