But new hope and an alternate treatment has recently surfaced thanks to work on the Microbiome Project, which is studying the bacteria … [Read more...]

The link between MS and your gut is clear... 80% of your immune system is in your gut and its microbiome (flora). therefore the function of your immune system is shaped by what kinds of microbes grow in your gut (your flora). turns out that mice develop an MS-type disease with MS symptoms like nerve damage, weakness, decreased nerve conduction, and all the … [Read more...]

Thanks again to the micro biome research, we now know that patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) have a very different and less diverse micro biome (flora) than healthy patients. That means they have less different forms of bacteria, less healthy bacteria, and more unhealthy bacteria in their gut. And amazingly this seems to be related to cancer -in this case CRC.
