Gut Health is one of the major key factors we should all be aware of when it comes to learning about our long-term health & we’re only just beginning to understand  – as a society – how intricately related the balance of our microbiome is to our mood, our energy and even our immune system.

Listen to this episode on iTunes or Spotify, or play directly below.

Did you know that your microbiome actually begins to develop before you’re even born, while you’re still in-utero?

There are many factors we can’t control – such as the  health of our mothers before giving birth, whether or not we’re born via c-section or a regular vaginal delivery as well as what type of foods we’re raised on and exposed to throughout our life. However, there is still so much within our control that we’ve been overlooking for too long & we hope, that with this episode – we will encourage you to take your power back – before it’s too late.

In this episode:

Antibiotics, processed foods, refined sugar, prescription medications, pesticides covering conventional produce & all of our community parks, sterile work and home environments, as well as a lack of exposure to the outdoors, fermented foods, willpower, calorie counting, prebiotics and probiotics that all play a role in our long term health.
