Simple Ways to Support Your Kid's Microbiome

Young smiling girl swimming in the pool and improving her microbiome.

With the spring renewal in full swing, May is an excellent time to reevaluate our health goals for ourselves and our kids. It’s personally my favorite time to start a new tiny habit that could have major benefits over time because I’m not recovering from the holidays or battling winter colds. Hopefully, your kids are over the cold season too!

This year? I’m committing to ending my days with a cold pool swim 2 times a week for 30 minutes in addition to my regular yoga routine. If you’ve never tried a cold plunge, it’s a fabulous way to stimulate detoxification, circulation, and energy! As for your kiddos, a warmer pool is probably best for their little bodies.

Over the last month, there have been loads of interesting developments in the health news. Below you’ll find my roundup of the news I’ve found most interesting. The word doctor comes from “docere,” which means to teach, and I hope these monthly news roundups will educate and empower you to live a healthier life.

Now, let’s get to it!

👇Have you heard?

🤸‍♂️ Exercise can change your gut microbiome 🚴

A new study of middle-aged adults in Canada (just regular people—not athletes) found that exercising 150+ minutes per week had a positive effect on the gut microbiome.

Most people focus on foods to support a healthy gut. This study shows that exercise works too 🙌

What’s even more exciting is that a healthier gut microbiome could translate into better:

✔️ Skin

✔️ Mood

✔️ Digestion

✔️ Metabolism

✔️ Brain Health

✔️ Immune Function

✔️ And Overall Health

Who doesn’t want that for themselves and their children?

This study showed that the gut microbiome responded more to a longer duration of exercise, whereas the exercise intensity didn’t matter
