Episode 26: How to Rebuild the Microbiome – and Why This is Essential

Our digestive tract plays a huge role in our health and impacts our digestion, mood, nervous system, and immunity. A few episodes ago, we talked about the basics of digestion and in this episode, we are taking this conversation a few steps further by diving deeper into the gut microbiome.

Today is the day we’re talking about the microbiome – the delicately balanced ecosystem in our gut that is at the root of much of our health; and when out of balance, the root of many common health challenges.
