Keto Kamp with Ben Azadi: How The Gut Microbiome Could Drive Brain Disorders

Martha Carlin | Dec 22, 2023 | Podcast

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Martha Carlin. She is a Citizen Scientist that takes a systems approach to looking at Parkinson's disease and finds the answers to PD and many chronic diseases may be in our poop.

When doctors said her husband’s Parkinson’s would eventually kill him, Martha Carlin said, “no it won’t.” She stepped out of a successful career as a systems expert and into the new role of Citizen Scientist. After years of re-learning the sciences, pouring over research (and commissioning work at the University of Chicago), Martha is now a leading source of deep data on the human biome to unlock preventions and cures for many of our most complex health conditions.

Her company, The BioCollective, links personal health history, metagenomics and microbiome analysis to uncover previously unknown links between chronic disease and diet, stress, and environment. She lives with her (thriving) husband John in Lone Tree, Colorado.

In this episode, Martha speaks about her obsession with the gut microbiome and how her research helped her husband's Parkinson's diagnosis. We talk about the differences between a healthy gut and an unhealthy gut. Martha reveals the top three things you need to avoid to improve your gut health. Later, we chat all about the products that Martha has developed as a result of her research. If you're interested in improving your gut health, you can find those formulas here: https://biotiquest.com/ (Use Code: KETOK15).

[00:30] Why Martha Is So Obsessed With The Gut Microbiome and The Research She’s Doing In Her Company

  • Martha’s 44-year-old otherwise healthy husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
  • So, Martha started to teach herself about science and the human body.
  • Food and water are the main inputs in the human body. Martha threw out all the food that wasn’t organic.
  • After ditching highly refined carbohydrates, Martha’s husband started to do much better than most people with Parkinson’s.
  • Martha recommends reading Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics Is Fueling Our Modern Plagues: https://www.amazon.com/Missing-Microbes-Overuse-Antibiotics-Fueling/dp/1250069270/benazadi-20

[12:05] Comparing A Healthy Gut To An Unhealthy Gut

  • People who have a relative abundance of streptococcus are in some disease category.
  • Streptococcus loves glucose.
  • Elevated proteobacteria is another sign of an unhealthy gut.
  • There’s a study suggesting that people who drink skim milk have a statistically significant increase in Parkinson's risk.

[18:30] Glyphosate: The Main Problem That Is Disrupting Your Microbiome

  • The number one thing disrupting the gut microbiome is glyphosate.
  • Most people do not understand how much the use of glyphosate has increased in the last thirty years.
  • Glyphosate changes the biochemistry of the plant. Also, it changes the biochemistry of the soil, which changes the nutritional uptake of a plant.
  • So, you need to eat as organic as possible. Also, make your legislators aware of the glyphosate problems.

[23:55] Other Things You Should Avoid To Improve Your Gut Health

  • Avoid high fructose corn syrup.
  • Highly processed sugars will have a significant impact on your microbiome and overall health.
  • The highest consumption of high fructose corn syrup is usually in poor populations.
  • Also, avoid antibiotics to improve your gut health.

[28:00] All About The BioCollective and How Martha Wants To Help People Improve Their Health

  • Martha uses the concept of collect, connect, and correct.
  • She collects poop samples, connects the dots, and corrects the problem.
  • Martha has worked with researchers all over the globe using their samples.
  • Now, they formulate different products to help people.
  • Sugar Shift is something that will help you address cravings.
  • BiotiQuest’s Sugar Shift helps your gut microbiome transform the unneeded accumulation of sugars (glucose and fructose) into mannitol. Mannitol is a sugar that isn’t stored in the body, so it is naturally eliminated.
  • Get Sugar Shift here: https://biotiquest.com/pages/sugar-shift (Use Code: “KETOK15”)

[36:05] Help Your Gut By Using Ideal Immunity and Heart Centered

  • Ideal Immunity is similar to Sugar Shift. However, this particular formula will kill foodborne pathogens. Plus, it works to restore mucosal surfaces in the gut to support your immune system.
  • If you’re traveling, Ideal Immunity is great for your gut.
  • Get Ideal Immunity here: https://biotiquest.com/pages/ideal-immunity (Use Code: “KETOK15”)
  • Lastly, Heart Centered is focused on cardiovascular health and lowering blood pressure.

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.
