About Biome and Beyond
Why Microbiome Medicine
The Human Being is a more than just a collection of human cells. In fact, the microbiome outnumbers human cells at least 3 to 1. As a result, the microbiome is just starting to get the much deserved attention and appreciation that has been lacking in medicine for too long. It affects virtually every aspect of our health and physiology, influencing everything from our metabolism to our mental health. Dysbiosis or Microbial imbalance has been linked not only to IBS, IBD and constipation but to the disease of the mind such as depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia and Bipolar. The substances we are exposed to and put into our bodies on a daily basis can have a profound impact on our microbiome and therefore our health. The composition is influenced in a healthy manner by external factors such as good diet, prebiotics and probiotics and is impacted in negative manner by external factors such as poor diet, and drugs such as antibiotics and Proton pump inhibitors. Moreover, intrinsic mechanisms such as stress also have a dramatic impact on our microbiome. There is truly a deep symbiosis that is occurring and the metabolites of these bacteria affect not only our gut-brain signaling, but influence the very expression of our genetic material. Supplementing with Prebiotics and probiotics can have deep effects on our mind/body and allow us to achieve a more robust state of health and wellbeing.
