“All disease begins in the gut” – Hippocrates

Vital Flora

Vital = Essential

Flora (Intestinal) =
micro-organisms that live in the intestine

There is a relationship between gut health and modern health problems. The state of your intestinal tract is extremely important for your overall health. An unhealthy gut can easily contribute to a wide range of diseases and disorders, particularly autism, behavior problems, diabetes, obesity, learning disabilities, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune diseases and chronic fatigue syndrome.

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.
