Gut Dysbiosis

[ gut duhs-bai-ow-suhs ]

Gut dysbiosis refers to an imbalance in the microbial community that resides in the gut, also known as the gut microbiome. This imbalance can occur when there is an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses, or other microorganisms, or a decrease in beneficial ones. This disruption in the balance of the gut microbiome can cause a range of health issues, including digestive problems, autoimmune disorders, mental health conditions, and more. It can be caused by factors such as poor diet, stress, antibiotic use, and certain medical conditions.
