Some things you might not know... (About your microbiome!)

-Microbes that live in our body outnumber our cells by 10:1
-Essential oils (good quality ones) can differentiate between "good" and "bad" bacteria. 
-The microbiome programs our immune system. 
-Many autoimmune disorders are traced back to an unhealthy microbiome. 
-The microbiome synthesizes neurotransmitters and is ultimately connected to our brain health. It is often called the "Second Brain" with 100 million neurons in our GI tract with connection to the brain via the vagus nerve. 
-Emotional, mood and brain disorders are all able to be addressed through the microbiome. 
-People who have trouble losing weight have a different microbiome. If you change your microbiome, you change the results. 
-Hormone balance (endocrine system) is connected to the microbiome. 
_Many health disorders are connected to the microbiome. 
The first step in dealing with any health issue is to fix your microbiome. This includes everything from weight, autoimmune, hormones, brain, etc. 
-Adding in whole foods and a variety of plant based foods boost the diversity of the microbiome and creates a "richness" that creates balance and health. 
-All mental health issues have ties to nutrition, i.e., the microbiome, and can be helped with natural remedies. Most issues, if caught soon enough, may never require medications! 


So, why do I share all these stats with you? 

I share because so many people are suffering from something that CAN be remedied! 

It has been an exciting journey to see the ways that nutrition and lifestyle changes can change people's mental and emotional health, not to mention the physical aspects too. As a holisitic therapist and life coach, I help people look at the lifestyle changes to make changes in their microbiome for a complete health transformation. It is amazing to see the results that come just with simple lifestyle changes and high quality supplementation. I want you to know that if you are someone who is struggling with any element in your health and well-being, there is HOPE! 

Change your microbiome, change your life. <3
