Body's Flora - Indigenous Bacteria in the Human Body

Body's Flora -  Indigenous Bacteria in the Human Body

About one hundred trillion bacteria live inside you.   Up to a 1000 species and more than TEN TIMES the number of cells you have in your body! These indigenous bacteria are referred to as the body's flora and live in many areas of your body, including the skin, intestines, mouth, nose, pharynx, urethra and vagina

 Flora in the Body

Organisms are considered either “friendly” or “unfriendly”.   When “Friendlies” and “Unfriendlies” have an appropriately balanced presence, the body can better maintain health.
