Herb Lab – Digestive Health and Microbiome with Yaakov Levine
Digestive health is a favorite topic for herbalists. The path to good health begins right in our own microbiome. After an interview with Nutritional Health Coach, Yaakov Levine, Sue and Candace give their own perspective on supporting digestion with herbs and fermentation. Other herbalists have discussed gut health on Real Herbalism Radio. Sue and Candace bring together these thoughts from across the years to provide a more full picture of fermented food used as supplements.
