BiotiQuest® Gut Health & Probiotics Blog with Martha Carlin

"The Food You're Eating Is Feeding Disease!" - Fix This To Save Your Gut & Lifespan

Martha Carlin | Jun 28, 2024 | Podcast

Tune in as Martha emphasizes that while indigenous populations show greater microbial diversity, much is still unknown about the effects of various diets, like the ketogenic diet, on the microbiome. Martha acknowledges that meat contains unique fibers like hyaluronic acid that support connective tissue health. While fiber is often considered beneficial, its role can be overrated if the gut microbiome is compromised. Martha explains her reservations about plant-based fibers due to chemical contamination and stresses the importance of a healthy microbiome for overall health.

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.
