HOLISTIC HEALTH I DIET FOR LIFE: PART 2


“The microbes that live inside us control our weight, our immunity, our hormone balance, and how we age”


It’s never too late “What we choose to eat shifts the diversity and distribution


of the microbes in our gut: Our current disease-promoting foods and lifestyle are the cause of the array of autoimmune conditions, fatigue, poor mental health, obesity and heart disease and cancer,” argues Gates.


But, we can regain our health through diet and for this, nutrition experts such as Wolfe say, we need to look at the first step of all digestion: what we get from our mother through breast feeding. Friendly bacteria, he says, are of key importance because of our symbiotic relationship; we need each other.


“The time spent in the womb, and especially at birth, are critical times for establishing a healthy inner ecosystem,” agrees Gates, adding: “But, it’s never too late.” Next issue we find out in more detail what actually makes a ‘biologically-appropriate,’ natural diet to help us improve our inner ecosystem and overall health. We also take a closer look at the price we are paying for eating processed and sterilised foods, which although we have begun to consider these the norm, experts are increasingly finding that, to our bodies, they are anything but normal.


Bacteria culture: Like our fingerprints, facial characteristics and personalities, our gut microbiome — the community of bacteria, yeast and viruses that live inside us — is unique to each of us
