Did you know that you have TRILLIONS of beneficial bacteria throughout your body that directly affect your health and well being?

These bacteria outnumber your human cells 10 to 1 – wow!

They live in what is called your “microbiome” and love to feast on their favorite foods. Every time you eat something, it affects the environment in your gut. If you feed the bacteria what they love, they will reward you with great health.

However, the opposite is ALSO true. Feed them “bad” things and bad health will ensue.

Let’s take a quite look at WHAT exactly your microbiome is:

  • A colony of  the bacteria in your body
  • These bacteria can positively influence your mood, immune function, body weight and blood sugar
  • Good bacteria grow rapidly when:
    • You are born vaginally
    • Are breastfed
    • Live in a natural environment
    • Refrain from antibiotics
    • Eat a diet full of plants and fiber
  • 100 trillion single-cell organisms that live in your gut:
    • Boost your ability to process fiber and nutrients
    • Make your body less susceptible to pathogens

While the standard American diet and lifestyle do very little to nurture a healthy microbiome, there are positive choices that you can make today that can enhance the state of your microbiome.

Here is what you can do to start taking care of your microbiome now:

Take A Probiotic
  • Helps offset the damage of modern life
  • Promote a healthy balance in your gut
  • What to look for:
    • Contains Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains
    • At least 1 million live bacteria
Eat Fermented Foods
  • Provides beneficial bacteria
  • What to eat:
    • Kimchi
    • Live sauerkraut
    • Miso soup (fermented soybean paste)
    • Yogurt  and kefir (organic and raw)
Eat Probiotic Foods
  • Prebiotic foods are plants
  • High fiber plants are the preferred food of your beneficial bacteria
  • What to eat:
    • Beans
    • Brussels sprouts
    • Chicory root
    • Asparagus
    • Garlic
    • Leeks
    • Onions
    • Jerusalem artichoke
    • Note: may cause gas and bloating at first if you are not used to eating them. Chew these foods thoroughly.
Avoid Antibiotics
  • Should be avoided unless truly medically necessary
  • Take a high-potency probiotic during and after taking antibiotics
  • Hidden sources of antibiotics and antimicrobials:
    • Sanitizers
    • Soaps
    • Treated kitchen supplies and toys
    • Meat and dairy products from factory farms
    • What to do: choose naturally raised meat and animals products. Regular soap is effective for hand and dishwashing.
Other Herbs & Foods To Add
  • To encourage beneficial bacteria while fighting pathogens, use:
    • Green tea
    • Rose petals
    • Ginger root
  • The following are also helpful for your gut bacteria:
    • Polyphenol-rich chocolate
    • Tea
    • Elderberries
    • Berries
    • Flax
    • Nuts

Start today by increasing the amount of probiotics and then gradually increase the amount of prebiotics you consume daily (vegetables).

By taking care of the bacteria in your microbiome, these trillions of cells are the starting point for making you feel like a million bucks! Start giving some of these tips a try and let us know how it goes!
