In the past 20 or so years we have seen an enormous increase in new diseases, especially gut disease. Leaky gut, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, IBS and others are all disease hardly heard of decades ago. These diseases all seem to have one thing in common and that is compromised gut biota. In other words, rather than having billions of good bacteria in you gut, all the good bacteria you gut needs in order to digest your food properly and help your body function at optimal levels is depleted, overgrown with bad bacteria, no longer able to do their job or otherwise compromised. Sound familiar?
We have more people now than ever before taking medication for gut related ailments. We have also more people now than ever with undiagnosed gut problems, with symptoms like alternating diarrhea and constipation, heartburn, gluten intolerance issues, food related allergies or sensitivities and much more. We are losing our gut bacteria as we are losing our soil bacteria.
