Love Your Gut: The Story of Your Microbiome with StaciJoy
December 13, 2017
Hosted by Lisa Tremont Ota
Did you know that your gut informs your brain? TRUE! In this episode, StaciJoy, holistic public health nurse, helps us explore our enteric brain and the universe of bacteria that lives within the digestive tract. We are not alone! Indeed, we have two to four pounds of bacteria living within our gut! In fact, there are 100 trillion microbes, including 1200 different species. If you continually feed the bad bacteria, you will eventually develop permeable intestines (leaky gut), which leads to allergies, inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Learn why up to 80% of people who start a new eating program will fail. It's not your fault! The good news is that our bodies are continually transforming, offering an opportunity for healing through optimal nutrition. Learn what you can do to achieve success. This episode brings home the familiar phrase 'You are what you eat' and helps us to stop the ongoing war within your gut, replacing it with peace and harmony.
