The main rationale for the RPA Personal Microbiome Health is that our microbiome is a personal trait, shaped from birth, by an interplay of genetic, immunological, cultural, socio-economic, behavioural and environmental factors. We see microbiome health as a complex and personalised multiplex network of these processes actively sustaining health of the individual. Microbial disbalance with the host (dysbiosis) at a specific site, such as the oral cavity or gut, has implications for the entire body and can have severe consequences for general health and has the potential to be restored through different interventions. Therefore, delineating and understanding of these complex host-microbiome-environment interactions is of high importance for maintaining health and in disease prevention.
