The “War on Microbes” has reached its tipping point and we are beginning to truly witness what detrimental effects our increasingly high intensity efforts are leading to. The rise in chronic diseases, including a variety linked to obesity, can be attributed to the carpet-bombing of our own personal microbial ecosystems. Of special significance, Dr. Messier illustrates how the gut microbiome is responsible for a staggering portion of our well-being, including mood regulation, disease control, and anti-aging. The answer to extended longevity, positive mental health and balanced living may have been in our gut all along.
