Following some surprising discoveries over the last decade, the White House announced the National Microbiome Inniative(NMI) in May 2016.

The NMI aims to advance understanding of microbiomes in order to aid in the development of useful applications in areas such as health care, food production, and environmental restoration.

Our understanding of gut health has been growing in our conscious minds for some time now. It will be interesting to see where the NMI takes us. With each new study, more and more information is shedding light on the importance of our microbial health. Read about the connections that are linking mental and physical health to the health of our microbiome and how we can better care for our microbes from my article in the June 2016 Bay View Compass.
