Our bodies’ systems are interconnected. Like a Swiss Watch, when one gear malfunctions or stops working altogether, it affects the functionality of the others.
This newly identified astrocyte is a prime example of this perspective, as the health of the microbiome in our gut could potentially determine the functionality of our brain in the long run and decrease our chances of developing diseases such as MS (Multiple Sclerosis).
At The Wellness Way, we urge our patients to not only be mindful of their food intake but to also strive for eliminating common processed foods that can contain a wide variety of toxins. Taking care of our gut counts towards taking care of the rest of our body, too.
