A disruption in the micro-biome is one of the key aspects at the root of many gastrointestinal problems, autoimmune diseases and mood disorders. Eating processed foods, refined sugar, taking antibiotics or antacids all play a role in wiping out our protective micro-biome, the complex ecosystem of trillions of tiny gut bacteria.
