Think of your gut as a landscape (or microbiome) that is populated with “Resident Bacteria”. Our bodies host many microorganisms, the word “Microbiome” refers to the vast ecosystem of microorganisms in and on your body, including your gut. The Resident bacteria in your gut are inherited and they play a big part in our immunity and health.
You could have inherited an impoverished gut microbiome (landscape) or a rich one depending on your parents and ancestors, their “culture” and eating habits. This does not determine your gut fate forever. You can take matters into your own hands. You can impoverish a robust gut if you are careless, and you can enrich a poor one if you care.
This leads us to the questions: How does one destroy it? And build it?
