The Perfect Diet

The perfect diet for you is different from the perfect dier for your best friend. Just because something works for you, doesn't mean that it's going to work for anybody else.

We have to really listen to what our body wants and ask ourselves "Am I eating the best way?"

The Microbiome

We are 50% bacteria.

There is this huge ecosystem about equal to the number of cells we have in our body.

It is called a microbiome, a community of bacteria, parasites, and yeasts that when working well, they modulate our immune system, help balance our brain...
