Microbiome Food Mind: As embodied Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures, many issues/variables are involved. We carry ~30,000 genes from parents, we also carry ~1 million genes in the bacteria we carry, especially in our intestines/colon, complex symbiotic relationships. Changes in emotional states (intestinal control) & food choices alter the microbiome within & these all change intestinal function with whatever symptoms.
