Conventional medical wisdom teaches that bacteria are intrinsically bad, disease spreading and unintelligent. However, nothing is further from the truth. Bacteria are the grand conductors of life – coordinating everything we see and influencing who we are. They move within us, deep beneath rational thought to inspire us through gut instincts and gut feelings. Their communications with the brain color how we feel, the foods we crave, our sense of wellbeing or our deepest feelings of unrest. Their health is the foundation of our own and in the right context, all bacteria have a positive effect.
