THE IMMUNE SYSTEM IN YOUR GUT
Did you know that about 80% of your immune system is actually located in the gut? When your microbiome is out of balance it can be harder for your immune system to fight off even the common cold, leaving you more susceptible to other serious viruses.
That’s why at the Good Gut we focus on nourishing the body to MODULATE the immune system — not boost it!
Despite commonly held beliefs, your immune system should never be boosted. This idea of an immunity boost is rooted in harmful pseudoscience, and stems from our primal fear of being too weak to survive the evolutionary arms race. But the truth is your immune system is not something that can be charged up from the outside. It begins with the choices that you make on a daily basis.
Understanding the relationship between the immune system and gut health has never been more important as it is now, in the age of COVID-19. In fact, scientists are discovering that an imbalance in gut bacteria could be predisposing people to severe COVID-19.
They’re learning that beneficial gut microbiome species, the type that promote low inflammation, have the potential to prevent or fix the immune alterations that may put people at a greater risk of severe COVID-19.
If you’re looking for an evidence-based approach to improving your immune system, then you are in the right place. We will work together to develop a plan of action to identify food sensitivities and heal the gut lining so that your immune system will function at its best.
