As similar as we are as human beings, our microbiomes, or the collection of microbes that inhabit our bodies, vary immensely. Supporting and maintaining a balanced and healthy microbiome is critical to overall immune system health and body wellness.
Supporting the “good bugs” in our microbiome has incredible positive effects on our overall health. They help promote the body’s natural defenses against pathogens and promote healing of damaged tissues. Biotic and abiotic factors both play important roles in this process and are essential to achieving the goal of a balanced, healthy microbiome. Simply put, When our microbiome is out of balance, we’re out of balance. When we’re out of balance we can experience a host of health issues.
