Martha Carlin is Back on the Life's Best Medicine Podcast with Dr. Brian Lenzkes!

You may have tuned into my interview with Dr. Brian Lenzkes on the Life's Best Medicine podcast back in April (if not, you can listen here!). We discussed the microbiome triggers for diseases, the multitude of factors that affect the gut microbiome, diet and lifestyle changes to support gut health, and much more.

Today I'm honored to share I am back on the Life's Best Medicine Podcast for a second interview with Dr. Lenzkes!

In this conversation, we talk about the initial results of a new clinical trial on the effects of Sugar Shift, my spiritual journey, the relationship between science and spiritual faith, the body’s amazing ability to heal itself, the significance of the microbiome for total health and metabolic health, and more. Listen here!

It is a packed episode and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Thanks so much for Dr. Lenzkes for his support and the great work he is doing on his podcast.


With gratitude,

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 health, including Parkinson’s. 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.
