I've worked in the physical health world for about 25 years, initially as a massage therapist. I don't know how many bodies I have massaged over the years but at no point did I consider I was massaging anything other than a human!
It wasn't until 2016 that I first learnt about the 90% of us. The hidden world we carry around with us that make up a huge part of our lives. I have to say I was shocked! And I think there are a lot of therapists out there that still don't really understand the function of our microbiome.
You see, we are a superorganism. A collection of species, living side-by-side and cooperatively running our body (when balanced correctly). We make up 21,000 gene expressions and our microbiome make up a further 4.4 million gene expressions! By this count we are actually only half a percent human!
Your gut is host to 100 trillion imposter cells hitching a ride with you and if they didn't have a function, your immune system would work hard to kick them out.
So what is the function? Well that's what I've been exploring for the last 6 years and how I have come to be an expert in helping people through gut restoration and total transformation.

Perhaps the clues to feeling better are not in the cells of your human body!
PS I don't do massage anymore. I retired from it a few years ago 🙂
