There is increased recognition that the health of the individual depends on the health of the ecosystem of the microbial community living on and in the body of the individual. The state of the individual’s ecosystem is reflected in the diversity of species living in the gut microbiome. This paper will summarize recent findings on the gut brain axis, the connection between the gut microbiome and health status, and practical steps, using diet and lifestyle interventions, an individual can take to monitor and improve the diversity of species in their gut microbiome.
