Your gut is arguably the most important region of your body, housing 80% of your Immune System and responsible for the elimination of toxins that enter your body to ensure overall health.
Living in your digestive tract are trillions of bacteria, all different, all with specific purposes. And these work in synergy with your body to digest and eliminate toxins and keep your body healthy. We call this large collection of bacteria a Microbiome.
But in today’s world, with toxins in our air, food and water supplies, this essential component of our health is more and more under attack from outside influences.
You see, there are many factors that affect your microbiome on a daily basis that can alter its pH, impact your absorption of nutrients as well as your inflammatory response, immune function, digestion, and your gut’s ability to fight invaders.
The health of your microbiome depends on having the proper balance between beneficial bacteria and potentially pathogenic bacteria, as well as the health and integrity of your gut lining.
When your microbiome falls out of balance or loses its diversity, or your gut lining becomes compromised, it can impact many processes in your body and your risk of chronic disease.
Here we’re going to cover the main things that may be affecting your Microbiomes health and leading to an invasion of pathogenic bacteria, slowly worsening your health over time:
Next on the list is your diet.
There are many things in your diet that may not only be preventing you from getting the beneficial bacteria you need, but destroying them and allowing pathogenic bacteria to populate and flourish:
Last we have stress. Stress affects your gut in a number of ways including hindering the production of enzymes and absorption of nutrients, and reducing oxygen levels and blood flow. Plus, it can impact the functioning of your entire GI tract, including your gut flora.
But did you know, this same stress can also be caused by an unhealthy gut? The health of your gut can make you feel tired and run down. It can sour your mood and the bacteria in your gut can actually send stressor signals to your body making your feel stressed. Improving the health of your gut can actually improve your overall mood.
Now that you know what can destroy or upset the balance of your microbiome and the integrity of your gut lining, let’s look at what you can do to help restore your gut health to support your health and well-being.

If there is anything society has come to realize over the last century, it is that women are just as powerful, smart, ambitious, and capable as men. And while society as a whole is still catching up as far as true equality, the facts are evident when you look at some of the most incredible and influential people today.
When it comes to fitness, however, men and women are not the same. The natural, physiological differences necessitate unique approaches to achieve optimal results. While the fundamental science behind attaining a shredded, lean physique is basically the same for both sexes, the exact steps and application require careful consideration.
One thing I've learned is that injuries can be great teachers. There are so many lessons to be learned from the injuries we experience. They force us to slow down and evaluate our bodies on a deeper level. Like many, I'm guilty of sometimes taking my healthy days for granted. When we pick up an injury, we're suddenly motivated to learn everything we can about that specific injury. We're also dedicated to the necessary rehab it will take to overcome the injury and strengthen our weak areas.
As with many injuries, I've learned there are no "quick fixes" for my stubborn Achilles. Over the years, I've also learned there are no "get fit quickly" schemes.
