How To Restore Gut Health (AND why it's important for your immune system)
- posted: Apr. 15, 2021
Did you know that 70 to 80% of our immune system is located in our gut – and that the best way to support immunity (especially in these times) is by supporting gut health?
Most conventional doctors, and most of the experts in the media are not talking about the one most important way to ensure a healthy, robust immune system. And the headline is, it's not a vaccine.
Humans have more bacterial cells than human cells. Most of them live in our gut. The collection of these bacteria, viruses and fungi are known as the gut microbiome. They help with digestion, but otherwise, they stay on their side of the intestinal lining, and we stay on our side.
There's a lot of interaction between the body's immune system and the bacteria in our gut. Researchers are now figuring out that the composition of our gut changes in different disease states. How the body's immune system interacts with these tiny hitchhikers are particularly how the relationship may function in disease.
Our gut microbiome is influenced by the food we eat, the toxins we are exposed to exercise and restorative sleep. A healthy gut means a healthy, robust immune system.
