Science continues to reveal more about the staggering link between gut health and a strong immune system. Seventy percent of the body’s immune cells reside in the gut, and many health experts have even started to consider the gut microbiome as its own organ.
When a patient is struggling with frequent health problems or long-term discomforts, integrative doctors tend to seek underlying problems with the GI tract as a first course of action. Because the gut microbiome is teeming with trillions of bacteria, it plays a central role in healthy digestion, immunity, cognitive function, mood, and many other body systems.
When the microbiome is out of balance, the immune response is affected by increased intestinal permeability, leaving you more prone to a fungal, bacterial, or viral invaders.
