Boost your Immune System for Covid-19
It’s a community of trillions of living microorganisms, mainly bacteria but also viruses, fungi and other microbes. You have developed a mutually beneficial relationship with your microbes that function together as an ecosystem. An imbalanced ecosystem, also known as dysbiosis, can cause a number of problems including brain fog, mood issues, weight gain, diabetes and autoimmune conditions.
Your gut microbiome has its own language and bacteria communicate with each other independently.
When you eat a meal, your bacteria will have a biochemical ‘conversation’ about it and decide where those nutrients are most needed. Your bacteria are able to sense how stressed, how happy, how anxious or angry you feel. They are also able to influence your emotions by generating and modulating the signals that the gut sends back to the brain. I find it fascinating that what you eat can affect your mood!
The immune system is your own personal army, made up of cells and molecules that protect you from disease. It continuously monitors your body for foreign substances. Your immune system has developed alongside the gut microbiome, they work together to keep you healthy and protect you from those ‘bad’ microbes.
The dialogue between your immune system and the gut microbiome begins at birth. When things are functioning well, the immune system promotes the growth of the good bacteria and keeps things in balance. The microbiome supports the development of immune cells and helps with fine tuning immune responses.
