Gut Dysbiosis and Bile Acids

Everything in the body is interconnected. We know that by now, right? Just like there’s a “gut-brain axis”, there’s also now the bile acid-gut microbiome axis as well.

There are some period symptoms that are common but fixable in most cases (like PMS,  cramping, and moodiness), and others that, for the most part, are physiologic (like bowel changes)--but it’s possible to mitigate them with a few habit changes.
