The microbiome’s sensitivity is its strength! The microbiome needs to be sensitive because it needs to detect potentially harmful pathogens that can cause dysbiosis. Some people’s microbiomes may be a little more sensitive and prone to imbalance than others.
This may be due to recurrent infections, frequent use of antibiotics, the prolonged consumption of dietary triggers, excessive chronic stress, and more. But ultimately, the microbiome’s job is to keep your system balanced. You can support your microbiome in return through diet, lifestyle, stress management, and supplementation.
