National Geographic have a stunning article available online to read titled How trillions of microbes affect every stage of our life—from birth to old age.
I encourage you to have a read about the wonderful journey you and your gut bugs make together through your lifespan and how various crucial experiences may have created changes in the pattern of your symbiotic relationship.
Also how experiences may impact your health via your gut microbes and also how experiences impact our gut microbiome and how this impacts us as the host.
Personally I find the unfolding science on the gut microbiome to be about one of the most fascinating and helpful topics of research to date in my career.
Furthermore the inter-play between stress and who we are, with who the microbiome is and how this impacts who we are! A circle of interconnected life. Just wow!Andrea
A stunning article.
