Where would we be without the millions of bacteria that live on and in our bodies?! Researchers are realizing more and more how important these little bugs are to our health. From our bowels to our skin to our urinary tracts to our teeth, these little guys are so essential! And it’s when they disappear and other bugs take over that we get issues.
Have you considered the health of your mouth before? Do you have bad breath? Thrush? Cavities? Our mouths are one of our first defences against outside invaders and it’s important to keep this defence as strong as possible. One of the ways we can do that is with probiotics.
Have you ever played red rover? A group of people hold hands tight and then one person tries to break through the wall. It’s sort of like that. If you’ve got a strong wall with no broken links you are better protected from the bad guys.
I love that there are easy ways like this to strengthen our microflora. For our skin there are probiotic sprays and creams, for our gut there are plenty of ways to take probiotics, for our urinary tracts there are suppositories and for our mouths there is gum!
“The germ 🦠 is nothing, the terrain is everything.”
In other words, if you grow up a thick and rich forest full of healthy microflora, there is no forest floor room for invading plant species.
Take care of your fortress and it will take care of you! 😉
