Eight serious health problems that can start in your gut - from diabetes to mental disorders
Scientists are only just beginning to understand the microbiome; all of your microbes' genes.

What they recently discovered is that you don't have to be experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms to have poor micrbiome health.

On that note, I'm sharing eight chronic conditions that can result from an unhealthy microbiome, each of which is scientifically backed.

If you're suffering symptoms of any of these conditions, I recommend you consult your doctor ASAP - the answer may lie in healing your gut.

Eight health conditions associated with poor gut health

#1: Mental disorders
Your gut and brain are inextricably through the communication lines that are referred to as the gut-brain axis. In the medical literature, your gut is actually referred to as “the second brain”. An unhealthy microbiome has been linked to mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.
 
A possible correlation between the microbiome and cardiovascular disease was recently found. Certain bacteria produce higher levels of TMAO (trimethylamine-N-oxide), which is linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke. 
 
#3: Cancer
An eye-opening study out of the University of North Carolina suggests that damage and inflammation of the gut severely decreased the variety of bacterial species in the microbiome. This loss of microbiome diversity allowed a pathogenic bacterial overgrowth of E. coli. Eighty percent of mice with E. coli infection developed colorectal cancer.

#4: Autoimmune disease
To date, there are around 100 recognised autoimmune conditions and about 40 other diseases that have an autoimmune component. Because 80% of your immune system resides in your gut, it is no surprise that a damaged microbiome and leaky gut syndrome is a precondition for autoimmunity.
 
This chronic degenerative disease recently been linked to microbiome disturbances. One study found that transplanting the microbiome of diabetic mice into healthy mice made them diabetic as well!
 
#6: Skin conditions
Skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis all have a microbiome and inflammatory-autoimmune component to them. For many, the missing link to healing their skin issues is healing their microbiome.
 
#7: Acid reflux
Millions of people around the world suffer from acid reflux, or the more serious GERD. These problems are correlated with a microbiome dysfunction called SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
 
#8: Asthma
Dysbiosis of microbiome bacteria and an overgrowth of Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum, was shown to be a frequent underlying culprit for asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).
