Your microbiome is a whole eco-system of 100 trillion microbes (micro-organisms) that the body hosts from the inside of the gut to the outside of the body on the skin. One hundred trillion microbes out number the amount of cells in the human body by ten to one! You should know that your microbiome is really good for you! It is your immunity’s protection! Well, as long as the microbiome in your gut is balanced that is. The microbiome is how your immune system stays or does not stay healthy. These micro-organisms live in groups of communities consisting of symbiotic, commensal and pathogenic bacteria and usually they live in harmony with each other. However, if you have too much of the wrong bacteria in your microbiome they will quickly multiply and cause chaos in your gut and in your body which does include effecting your sense of well-being.
