Hippies have been saying this because of early microbiome research, which as been a thing since h pylori was discoverd to cause ulcers, and has included lung microbiome in recent years.

But the specific conclusions of hippies are rarely evidence-based.

But there is no actual research to recommend Cannibis, bone broth, probiotic megadoses and kombucha to cure cancer by fixing your stomach bacteria, and leaky gut syndrome is a fake "disease" built on misunderstanding of how cell walls work.
