In the third and final part of my series on gut health, I talk about a New York Times article suggesting obesity being partly caused by a microbiome issue.

Your microbiome is the bacteria that live both inside and outside your body.

And, they are critical to your health.

In fact, researchers believe the microbiome is virtually another organ.

A health microbiome helps you...

Break down nutrients

Boost your immune system

Provide nutrients to your cells

Prevent harmful bacteria and viruses from hurting you

Scientists have known for a while that the microbiome of healthy people is different from unhealthy people.

AND...

The microbiome of lean individuals is different from those who are obese.

I also go through the exact questionnaire I use in my clinic for gut health and Leaky Gut Syndrome...

And discuss the role childhood antibiotics have on the adult microbiome and why it causes...

Allergies

Asthma

Obesity

Type 1 Diabetes
