Making Friends With Your Microbes

Making Friends With Your Microbes" demystifies our human Microbiome, the web of symbiotic life-forms within each of us. The presentation explores how our diets relate to human history, and how traditional methods of fermentation create "living foods" that bolster our digestion and immunity. By understanding the role of these microbes in our bodies, sourcing high-quality foods, and detoxifying our homes, we all can learn to achieve and maintain vibrant health
