What is Microbiome and how does it effect my health?

"The microbiome is the collection of all microbes, such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and their genes, that naturally live on our bodies and inside us. Although microbes are so small that they require a microscope to see them, they contribute in big ways to human health and wellness." -National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

Your Microbiome is a harmony of Microbes in your gut that effects your digestion, immune system and even mental health.

"Did you know that the bacteria living in your gut produce a range of neurotransmitters that can improve mental health? In fact, the connection between the gut and our emotional state is so profound that the gut is often considered the second brain." -

So your Microbiome effects you physically and mentally as well? To have your microbiome off balanced could cause unexplained symptoms such as,

  • Chronic diarrhea, constipation, or bloating

  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches

  • Confusion

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Skin problems, such as acne, rashes, or eczema.

  • Joint pain

  • Brain fog

  • ADD, or ADHD.

Trying to understand the harmony and balance in the body is what we do best.

With the help of Microbiome labs, we figure out the underlying problems of your symptoms.

Take your first step to start feeling better.
