Parents of Middle School Students with JA - Microbiome, Gut Health & Arthritis
Scientific evidence linking gut health and arthritis, as well as a slew of other diseases, continues to grow. Research has successfully connected the gut microbiome — the ecosystem of trillions of microorganisms inhabiting the digestive tract that can help stabilize the immune system — to rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and lupus nephritis. In this episode, we explore the microbiome-arthritis connection, including its effect on inflammation. We’ll also discuss proven strategies to help improve and maintain the microbiome balance. When the microbiome is out of balance — generally from illness, poor diet, antibiotics, smoking, stress or obesity — the immune system can also get out of whack.
