I was honored to be a recent guest on the Vitality Made Simple Podcast with the wonderful Dr. Debbie Ozment! Dr. Ozment shares practical, understandable and fun strategies to enhance your Vitality and Healthspan on her show. She is a wealth of knowledge, and is committed to early diagnosis and intervention of periodontal disease to positively affect not only the mouth, but the entire body.
In this episode we talk about about my pursuit to understand and unravel complex health challenges, starting with Parkinson’s Disease after my husband John was diagnosed. I intensely investigated the gut microbiome as a root cause for so-called “hopeless” diseases, and we discuss how some of my discoveries can enhance your vitality and your relationships.

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.
