Chronic inflammation is behind many cardiac, respiratory, joint, and digestive illnesses, as well as cancer. In this book you will discover how our lifestyle (stress, quantity of physical exercise, type of diet, the emotions that build up inside us, the social relationships we form, etc.) contribute to increase or stop inflammation, which alters the ecosystem of microorganisms that live in our intestine: so-called intestinal microbiotics.
