Did you know that spending time outdoors provides your gut with beneficial bacteria? Gardening, climbing trees, swinging on swings in the park, making a sandcastle and jumping in leaves all provide you with a dose of microbes that contribute to your ecosystem. Research has shown that those who interact more in green and blue spaces (near water) are healthier. Could it be due to the microbes you encounter in those spaces? In this episode Dr. Jannine Krause interviews Michael Yadrick – podcaster and plant ecologist for the City of Seattle about your gut ecosystem, how gut microbiome restoration is similar to environmental restoration and the connection between your health and spending time outdoors.
What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:
• Why spending time outside increases your microbiome diversity
• The similarities between gut biome restoration and environmental restoration
• Why you want to think of your gut as an ecosystem
• Why launching massive herbal and pharmaceutical medicine attacks on your gut bugs might not be ideal
