In alignment with a whole-systems approach to medicine, the digestive tract is an important area to assess for any health issue, including endocrine health. Many have heard the phrase, “Disease begins and ends in the gut.” This means that no matter what the symptoms a person is having, the gut is involved. I have seen this proven true with my clients. The research on the microbiome is also validating this.
I am a bit obsessed with the microbiome, almost as much as essential oils. It is pretty cool, almost sci-fi-like, to know that we are “not quite human.” As the Human Microbiome Project proved, and researchers continue to validate, we co-exist and depend on the little buggy inhabitants that live in and all around us. The balance of bacteria, and other microbes, within our body interact with our own cells and impact our physiology, psychology, and resultant health. (source)
As the studies on the importance of the microbiome in health continue to explode, clinical applications of it do as well.
In my latest blog, I reveal the surprising fact that taking care of your microbiome, both in the gut and reproductive tract, is important for women’s health, fertility, reproductive health, and overall wellness. I also include a link to a podcast on getting to the root cause of anxiety in children.
