Health, as the complete physical, mental and social well-being, is absolutely the vital profit that someone can attain in his/her life span. On the other hand, health is immensely vulnerable to diseases and sicknesses like deadly cancer. Recent studies have proven that human Microbiome is directly related to the diseases and sicknesses encountered by us (Findley et al., 2016: Elinav et al., 2019). However, pathogenic microbes have already been entered and occupied their places in human Microbiome especially due to anthropogenic activities which impact adversely on the environment. Scientists have found that the Microbiome assembling is happening according to a pattern (Pennisi, 2019). In fact, the environment (soil and free-living) gifts a subset of their Microbiome to plants and algae. Thus, the Herbivores get a subset of Microbiome too from plants and algae. Likewise, the Microbiome assembling happens in the food webs. Interestingly, being the ancestor of all other Microbiomes, soil Microbiome plays a major role. It maintains by soil-plant-microbial network interactions. Therefore, reinstating the degraded networks in the soil leads to an enriched Microbiome consisting of least number of pathogens and plenty of beneficial microbes. For that, microbial ameliorators like BFBF can be used (Alori & Babalola, 2018: Senaviratne & Kulasooriya, 2013). Ultimately, it leads to improved human health by altering human Microbiome.
