Biohacking with Brittany: The Crucial Role of Your Microbiome: Understanding Environmental Impacts, Xenobiotics, and Sugar on Gut Health

Martha Carlin | Apr 08, 2024 | Podcast

This episode features expert guest Martha Carlin, CEO of The BioCollective and BiotiQuest. From discussing groundbreaking probiotics to the environmental impacts on our health, we uncover the critical connections between our internal microbiome and our overall well-being.

We also touch upon the importance of our food choices, cooking practices, and the use of probiotics, including their transgenerational effects and their intricate relationship with conditions like Parkinson's, acne, and eczema.

With gratitude,

Martha Carlin photo Martha Carlin, is a “Citizen Scientist”, systems thinker, wife of Parkinson’s warrior, John Carlin, and founder of The BioCollective , a microbiome company expanding the reach of science and BiotiQuest, the first of it’s kind probiotic line. Since John’s diagnosis in 2002, Martha began learning the science of agriculture, nutrition, environment, infectious disease, Parkinson’s pathology and much more. In 2014, when the first research was published showing a connection between the gut bacteria and the two phenotypes of Parkinson’s, Martha quit her former career as a business turnaround expert and founded The BioCollective to accelerate the discovery of the impact of gut health on all human disease. Martha was a speaker at the White House 2016 Microbiome Initiative launch, challenging the scientific community to “think in a broader context”. Her systems thinking background and experience has led to collaborations across the scientific spectrum from neuroscience to engineering to infectious disease. She is a respected out of the box problem solver in the microbiome field and brings a unique perspective to helping others understand the connections from the soil to the food to our guts and our brains.
