What is the human microbiome?
The human microbiome is comprised of all the microorganisms that live on or inside us. Made-up of over 100 trillion cells, these single-celled organisms outnumber our own cell count. These microorganisms are also extremely diverse with 10,000 different species, and while we humans only possess 22,000 different genes, there are at least 3.3 million microbial ones. Our human microbiomes directly impact our health. Our gut bacteria have a metabolic capacity 100 times greater than the human liver. Recent research has found that many diseases can be traced back to a disrupted human microbiome, which demonstrates that the bacteria in our gut have some control over our immune systems. We are at the tipping point of understanding how to preserve or regain our health due to accumulating evidence showing that keeping a healthy gut can directly help us live healthier, longer lives.
Why should you care?
Here is a shortened list of diseases associated with a disrupted microbiome:
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Heart Diseases
- Constipation and Diarrhea
- Overweight and Obesity
- Brain Disorders
- Frequent colds and infections
Every disease listed above is on the rise and the probability of developing one of these diseases is high, especially in industrialized countries.
Prevention is easier than treatments. Just remember the last time you were sick – no matter how small the sickness was, it impeded your quality of life and occupied your thoughts. By keeping our microbes happy we can prevent diseases and increase our quality of life!
Our health is our most important property!
-> Knowledge is key!
Diets fail because people lack a deeper understanding of the changes they make to their lives. Smart changes in the diet and setting a specific frame of mind can miraculously improve your results. 99.9% of human DNA is similar between people, but our human microbiomes are not! Let me give you scientific evidence that shows how powerful a healthy microbiome is at positively impacting your health journey, and how destructive to your health it can become when ill-treated!
