The Miracle of Your Biome

“Gut rehab has the power to transform your health! In a 2015 study published in Brain, Behavior and Immunity. Laura Steenbergen and Lorenza Colzato, psychologists at the Leiden Institute for Brain and Cognition, discovered that after taking probiotics for just four weeks, study participants were less likely to focus on bad feelings and bad past experiences.

Home to trillions of gut bacteria in what is known as the gut microbiome, the human digestive system is in direct communication with the human brain. The gut contains a network of neutrons that support this intimate relationship with the brain through vagus nerves. As such, the gut has the power to regulate stress, behavior, and mood and even influence your emotional state.”

Here is another look at it…

What is the microbiome and what does it mean for your baby?

During and immediately after birth, specific species of good bacteria from the mother are transferred to the baby via the birth canal, immediate skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding. This process kick-starts the baby’s immune system and helps to protect the infant from disease for its entire lifetime. But when interventions occur this microbial transfer is interfered with or bypassed completely. The latest scientific research is now starting to indicate that if the baby is not properly seeded with the mother’s own bacteria at birth, the baby’s microbiome is left “incomplete.” Watch Micro-Birth to learn more about these microscopic events and what they mean.
