Microscopic Organisms

Story at-a-glance -

  • There’s a microbial zoo living inside you, literally millions of microscopic organisms―more than 10,000 different kinds of them―all co-existing with each other and you
  • While a few of these organisms can sometimes wreak havoc with your system, the majority of these little “bugs” are good, helping you digest your food, stay protected from infections, and even keeping your immune properly regulated to fend off autoimmune diseases like asthma, allergies, and diabetes
  • Your body’s “community” of microorganisms is so crucial to your health that researchers have compared it to "a newly recognized organ," and have even suggested we consider ourselves a type of "meta-organism" -- in acknowledgment of the fact that we cannot be whole and healthy without the participation of a vast array of bacterial species and strains
  • In addition to avoiding unnecessary antibiotics (both medically and in your food) and antibacterial soaps, maintaining optimal gut flora, and 'reseeding' your gut with fermented foods and probiotics may be one of the most important steps you can take to improve your health
