Are you concerned about the long term impact of some of the pandemic “safety” measures? Feeling more disconnected from nature than ever? Tune in to hear Ali and Becki discuss why the microbiome matters, how our current industrialized society may be doing damage and how getting in the dirt can help!
In this episode, Ali and Becki unpack how disconnection and social isolation can actually drive imbalance in the body and harm to our microbiome. Learn how masking and overuse of disinfectants can contribute to sterility and how we are already set up for dysbiosis via our disconnect from the natural world. Plus learn about emerging research in the area of the “Microbioscape” or the interaction between our microbiome and environment and how getting in nature can help you to reconnect on a whole body level!
