Naturally Nourished Episode 60: Dysbiosis and the Microbiome

November 27, 2017

Did you know that the microbiome is made up of 100 trillion cells of bacteria and yeast that line the mouth, skin and gut? Curious about the role they play in our health? Want to know how to make your bacteria work in your favor? Tune in to hear Ali and Becki go down the rabbit hole of the microbiome and discuss what happens in both a symbiotic (favorable) and dysbiotic (unfavorable) state. From mood stability to immune health to digestive function, the microbiome plays a critical role in expression of overall health or disease state. Learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of dysbiosis as well as what you can do to ensure a healthy and resilient gut population!


In this episode, Ali and Becki dig into the complex topic of the microbiome and address how dysbiosis or overgrowth of bacteria occurs in the first place as well as the multitude of symptoms and conditions an unhealthy biome can drive. Our neurotransmitters, immune system and digestion are regulated by our living bacteria in the gut which means that dysbiosis can impact many systems of the body and have seemingly unrelated symptoms. Learn about what to look for in a probiotic, when probiotics may not be enough and how you can reset your microbiome to work in your favor!

Step 3: Start probiotic at 1 capsule at bed for 3 days. Continue to measure waist circumference at rise and at rest.

Step 4: Increase by 1 capsule capsule every 3 days until you meet 4 per night at day 10 of active probiotic challenge (not counting initial reads without probiotic)

Step 5: Try to continue at 4 per night for 3 days. Note changes in waist circumference as well as any changes in GI cramping, bowel movements, belching, or gas during challenge. Continue taking probiotic 1 at bed if well tolerated.
