The Secret Life of Parkinson's - #94: Parkinson's and Gut Health - Can Probiotics help you?

Martha Carlin | Feb 26, 2024 | Podcast

In this informative episode, we learn from Martha Carlin all about poop (yes, poop), our gut, and it's relation to Parkinson's disease. Martha has been researching gut health since her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's 20 years ago. Inspired by groundbreaking research from Dr. Filip Scheperjans in 2014, Martha founded The BioCollective, a research company focused on mapping health, and then later created BiotiQuest probiotics. The amount we learned in this short segment is amazing! Tune in today!

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 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.
