Did you know that bacteria outnumber cells in our bodies as much as 10:1? Most of these live in our digestive tract and together they make up a sort of organ whose functions have only recently began to reveal themselves. Michael Pollan suggests thinking of it this way: 99% of the DNA in our body is not our own. In this way, we are more microbial than human. These microbes can be benign and/or symbiotic. They help us, we help them. They can also get out of balance, due to outside influences. Join Certified GAPS Practitioner Melanie Christner to learn how to care for the healthy microbiome within, how to help the microbiome when its gone awry, and learn all about the amazing role our gut bacteria plays in total body health and well-being.
