The gut is the center of your health. Bloating, diarrhea, constipation or abdominal pain - everyone knows how tiring these symptoms can be. If the gut is not feeling well, the whole body suffers. The importance of healthy digestion for well-being was already described in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. Even today, science is all about intestinal health and especially about the intestinal flora - the intestinal microbiome!
What is your intestinal microbiome?
The microbiome is the accumulation of trillions of microorganisms that live in and on your body. It consists mainly of bacteria, but also contains fungi, viruses and archaea. It is assumed that we have around 2-3 kg of bacteria in the intestine alone. If you continue counting, that's more than 30 trillion bacteria, from over 1000 species of bacteria, that live in us – which amounts to a higher number of bacteria than our own body cells. Most of these microorganisms are good, but some of them are bad. The microorganisms in your gut are especially important for your overall health. They have a huge impact on health and disease. Examples include irritable bowel syndrome, obesity and cardiovascular diseases.
An unbalanced gut microbiome will affect your whole body. That's why we take a look at your intestinal microbiome and help you understand your bacteria.
