If you feel like your life is currently full of stresses and pressures, you need to just think about the way in which you approach life and whether those stresses can be reduced.

None of us want to slip into the clutches of a bad mood, it’s just one of those things that happens. A bad night’s sleep, a micromanaging boss, standing on a piece of lego - there are a billion things that can set us off and, once in a bad mood, they can be near-impossible to shake off.

Many things can contribute to autoimmunity, and leaky gut may be a bigger factor than we once thought. This is because of the impact of allowing undigested food, bacteria, etc. enter our bodies and how our immune system tries to fight them. A large part of our immune system is located just on the other side of that one-cell thick layer of enterocytes.
