If you have been struggling with immune system functioning gastrointestinal issues something as bad as celiac disease Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, if you just have the skin flare ups of acne and eczema, allergies, hay fever, maybe even just brain fog, you may be feeling the effects of a microbiome dysbiosis. We disrupt our microbiomes by lacking nutrients and fiber in your diet, lack of exercise, not getting enough sleep, having too much anxiety, do use many medications and antibiotics, having a long time spent indoors in contact with man-made material can also turn into a disruption in our microbiome. Genetic factors as well as over exposure to toxic household cleaning products, agricultural pesticides and herbicides and cosmetic products not designed with your microbiome in mind can lead to all manner of symptoms.
