A Healthy Microbiome: Essential for Good Health

How healthy is your microbiome? More and more research is shedding light on the major role that the bacteria in our bodies play in maintaining good health. Anxiety, asthma, autoimmune illness, heart disease, and cancer are just a few of the diseases now being linked to disturbances in the balance of bacteria within the human body. If you're struggling with health issues, your gut is one of the first places you should look to for answers. Got Bacteria? Most of us grew up with the idea that all bacteria are bad.
