Some interesting information on your gut microbiome that we really didn’t know about 20 years ago. Research is revealing that most of our diseases are dis-eases within our body and our LIFESTYLE choices are impacting our health, much of it negatively. Exercise and Relaxation which we covered in the first 2 lessons contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
Food is another big one. What we eat affects our health way beyond what we used to think, and it’s not just about counting calories. Did you know that obesity is a global epidemic? Some of it is not your fault because of the exaggerated, if not false, information the food industry is promoting, but once you become informed, it becomes your responsibility to take the Right action. Afterall, it’s your body!
Here’s some interesting facts and tips about your Gut Microbiome:
