“All disease begins in the gut” – Hippocrates

Our microflora are vital for our overall health.  There is a relationship between gut health and modern health problems.

Our microflora help control digestion and greatly benefit our immune system. An unhealthy gut can easily contribute to a wide range of diseases and disorders, particularly behavior problems, diabetes, obesity, learning disabilities, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune diseases and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you.  Eating fermented food and cultured veggies are a great way to introduce good bacteria into your body.

Leaky gut? The gut lining can deteriorate and become permeable due to our lifestyle. Molecules of protein enter into the bloodstream and the body views them as invaders and begins an immune response which can lead to autoimmune diseases and allergies.

A healthy gut means having a well balanced intestinal environment with an abundance of good bacteria. It is so easy to make your own probiotics by fermenting vegetables or culturing dairy.
