The skin and the gut microbiome do not act in isolation, but interact with each other to maintain our body’s defences. For instance, a repressed skin microbiome can have an adverse effect on the gut microbiome and visa versa.
Often, therefore, repairing one of these microbiomes alone is not enough, and stubborn chronic diseases will remain even if action is taken to increase the biodiversity of one of these.
Our own research has shown that biodiversity is the only way of measuring health, so we would recommend, therefore, that everyone takes a two pronged attack to increase the biodiversity of his or her whole microbiome:
1) Skin Microbiome: firstly, use a Third Wave skin microbiome enhancing product such as JooMo.
2) Gut Microbiome: consume a diet that increases the biodiversity of the gut microbiome.
Your skin microbiome is the first line of defence as it is constantly exposed to substances and chemicals that you come in contact with.
To increase your skin microbiome diversity, these steps are best to follow:
Your gut microbiome is different to the skin microbiome in the fact that it is an enclosed system. It is more protected in that way.
To increase your gut microbiome diversity, start with these two steps:
