Microbiologist, Amy Proal PhD, is today's guest interview. Amy shares with us new research about the microbiome (and virome) and the vital role they play in health and disease. She helps to explain what the microbiome is and how virtually every part of our body has its own microbiome community. We then find out what this means for the way we think about disease and treatment. We also go into the gut-brain access, what we can do to improve our microbiome, stool tests, and why Amy believes a paradigm shift is needed focusing on supporting the immune system and keeping the microbiome healthy.
