It’s a fact of life. When you stomach hurts, your whole body feels it. And there’s a reason for that: Your stomach is your body’s core. It’s also where all of your immunity originates from. Deep down in your tummy, billions of good bacteria try to thrive and fight infections. Problem is, bad bacteria love to come in and spoil the party. How? Things like antibiotics, dehydration, diet/nutrition, and stress are just some of the culprits. And if you think your stomach health is up to snuff, think again. Constipation, diarrhea, frequent colds or infections, food allergies, heartburn, gas and bloating, IBS and Candida – they’re all possible indications of a gut flora imbalance.
