The Model Health Show

One of the most fascinating and advancing areas of science is the field of microbiome research. Our understanding of our microbiome and its role has rapidly grown over the past few decades. The evolving knowledge of our microbial system shapes how we understand our biology, health outcomes, immune function, and so much more. 

The health of our microbiome is linked to a myriad of aspects of our health, including our ability to fight viruses, our weight and metabolism, and susceptibility to major illnesses like cancer, autoimmune diseases, and Alzheimer’s disease. And while we do inherit some aspects of our microbiome, there is a lot that is within our control when it comes to determining our microbial health. 

On this compilation episode, you’re going to hear insights and actionable tips from various experts on microbial health. This episode contains important information on how our microbes control different aspects of our lives, which medications can damage gut health, and which foods are essential for microbial diversity. You’ll learn why the microbiome is a main pillar of human health, and what you can do to positively impact the health of your microbiome. Enjoy!
