Ever wanted to know more about the Human Microbiome? Well this video explains and explores the fundamental aspects of Human Health from a microbial perspective. By the end you will think of your gut microbiome as a little community where everyone has a job and a purpose. 

The Microbiome Ethos

Every individual has their own unique microbiome that consists of a collection of micro-organisms that live within the gut (the colon). Scientific research suggests our dietary intake has a profound impact on these organisms which affects our overall health.

Most of us live with an imbalanced microbiome and exhibit symptoms such as: 

  • Difficulty losing or gaining weight
  • Allergies to foods
  • Skin reactions or rashes
  • Asthma
  • Mental Illness (e.g Anxiety, Depression)
  • Digestive Issues (e.g. bloating, constipation, diarrhea, poor digestion)
  • Fatigue
  • Inflammation or joint pain
  • Medical Conditions (e.g. Diabetes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
