This episode is part two of the Functional Foods for Microbiome Balance series. In part one, we talked about how food affects the various parts of the digestive tract and how to heal and restore balance. In this second part, we welcome back our guest, Steph Jackson, a certified nutritional endocrinology practitioner, and an expert in gut health and fermented foods.
