Why You May Want to Listen to That Gut Feeling More Often
When it comes to learning more about the microbiome, scientific discoveries continue to amaze me. We still don’t know all we need to know when it comes to our inner ecosystem – but what we do know (and what you will learn) is fascinating.
Can anyone guess how long I’ve been talking about our inner ecosystem for? Let’s just say, a long time. That’s why it’s so exciting to see how the microbiome is getting the recognition it deserves by being considered by some experts to be like a newly-discovered organ, a “2nd brain,” that profoundly controls all aspects of health throughout the body.
Your microbiome is responsible for:
- Breaking down and absorbing nutrients
- Communicating with the brain and nervous system
- Producing sex hormones
- Producing the brain’s chemical messengers
- Processing waste
- Extracting calories from food
- Controlling weight gain and loss hormones
- Removing used hormones from your body
- Managing inflammation
The symptoms and effects of an unhealthy, unhappy microbiome are so wide ranging: depression, anxiety, weight gain, autoimmunity, chronic disease, digestive issues, skin conditions and much more (unfortunately).
Unfortunately, so many elements of the modern world really hurt the microbiome and prevent it from functioning optimally. This is a BIG problem for our health and holds us back from vitality. And we don’t want that to be the case these days.
And during my talk, Your Microbiome, the Universe Inside You, here’s what you’ll learn:
- What percentage of your diet should be veggies?
- Can genetically modified bacteria be a good thing?
- Low carb myths
As we always say, the Principle of Uniqueness is always at work – just because one thing works for one, it may not work for another. And you never know when you will come across something that works PERFECTLY for YOU.
Never stop learning.
The best of health awaits you!
