Five Strategies for a Healthier Gut in 2013
January 24, 2013 By Jeff Leach
- Microbes in your gut can change profoundly throughout your life, and you can change them through diet, medications, and hygiene.
- Five strategies to help improve your gut flora include avoiding antibiotics, eating more whole plant foods and fermented foods, opening a window to the outdoors, and working in your garden.
- The American Gut Project will evaluate how different diets impact gut flora, and in turn how different gut flora impacts your health. Deadline for signup is February 2, 2013. (Side Note: Choose which kit donation you want--from $99 per kit on up--and then mail your stool/skin/or oral sample to the University for analysis of your gut flora, with the opportunity of getting another kit donation to follow up on any improvement analysis)
- The profound breakthrough technology that was used to sequence the human genome can now help you know what type of bacteria are living in your intestine.
