posgrado microbiota humana enfermeria

Numerous pieces of scientific evidence have implicated the intestinal microbiome and its metabolic potential in various pathological conditions in recent years, giving rise to new therapeutic strategies to control and regulate this ecosystem. The study of this ecosystem is a field that is rapidly advancing scientifically, and it is universally accepted that to achieve an adequate state of health it is also necessary to have a "healthy" Microbiota.

Our Microbiota undergoes changes as a consequence of the influence of multiple factors, diet, lifestyle, pharmacological treatments... generating alterations in this bacterial ecosystem; this abnormal interaction that the organism could have with it is related to certain processes: allergic, acute and chronic intestinal diseases, obesity and metabolic syndrome, neurological diseases, dermatitis and other alterations in the dermis and even some types of cancer.
