Recently I chanced upon watching a TV documentary on the gut microbiome and it was one of the most interesting things i've watched regarding human health and illness. It's a totally new concept that's been discovered and is related to so many illnesses.

Scientists have discovered a massive colony of varying good gut bacteria in our stomachs and all over our skin called the microbiome which collectively would weight 1.5kg. And these microbiome are literally having an effect on everything from our mood to our immunity and even our weight.  It's an incredible discovery and really interesting if you're on a recovery program like OMS or Wahls or just generally eating healthy. If you have MS, any autoimmune disease, weight problems, the list goes on, then you must watch this 2 part documentary. It sheds a lot of light on the diet for illness topic and how effective it is.
