Chances are very high that your gut micro biome is out of balance. We live in a world of large amounts of toxicity–it’s in our fertilizers and weed killers; our hair sprays and hair gels and shampoos; our pesticides; our food. So no matter how “clean” a person is with what they eat or the products they put on their skin, toxins can still be creating chaos in the micro biome.
This was the case with me. I could not understand why my doctor started me down this route when I cooked from scratch, made our own bread, and didn’t eat a lot of processed or refined-sugared food.
The truth was, my microbiome needed help. I had stored heavy metals from what I describe above. I had no idea. And I certainly did not know the connection between gut health and depression and anxiety. My microbiome was contributing heavily to the chaos in my life.
I now know. What my doctor helped me to see was the connection and that I could do something about it.
