Healthy Gut Bacteria

Dr Sandra Cabot and naturopath Margaret Jasinska discuss how to have healthy gut bacteria. More and more we are hearing about the importance of having a healthy gut. There are around 500 different species of bacteria in the intestines and new species are continually being discovered. The types and amounts of bacteria in your intestines have a profound effect on your health. Good bacteria are anti-inflammatory, whereas bad bacteria secrete highly inflammatory substances into the gut. Having high levels of bad gut bacteria (dysbiosis) puts a huge strain on your immune system, increasing the amount of inflammation and tissue destruction occurring in the body.
