PARK4U Podcast: Parkinson's and the Microbiome

Martha Carlin | Aug 24, 2021 | Podcast

A few months ago I was contact by Paula Vargas, President and Founder of PARK4U and Parkinson's nonprofit focused on providing education and support for people with Parkinson's and their caregivers. PARK4U has started a podcast with JM Kenny, an entertainment producer living with Parkinson's. Paula and Kenny discuss topics relevant to living with Parkinson's from a patient and caregiver perspective, working to bring positive perspectives and hope to the community.

Paula asked me if I would come on the podcast to discuss Parkinson's and the Microbiome, my company, The BioCollective's, research in Parkinson's and our development of our probiotic for constipation, gut health and mannitol production. You can listen to the podcast Episode 6: Understanding Your Microbiome here!

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.
