When the composition of this ecosystem changes, it can manifest in conditions, like atopic dermatitis (aka eczema).
Changes to and activity of your gut microbes can impact your microbiome. We aren’t there yet but soon scientists might discover how to manage conditions by looking at the gut. we wait in hope!
