In this episode you will learn:

  • Why Gut health continues to be essential for overall health
  • What microbe RNA can tell you about your gut health
  • What you need to sample to to measure your microbiome

Meet this week’s guest: Richard Lin

Several years ago Richard Lin became ill after taking course of antibiotics. And ended up being hospitalized. Wondered why he got sick, started reading literature on gut health and discovered the microbiome.

After heading down that rabbit hole he learned more and more about the gut microbiome he realized that there wasn’t a service dedicated to helping people monitor and improve their microbiome health. So he founded Thryve, a company dedicated to creating personalized probiotic formulas.

I practice acupuncture in Clinton, NY, a small village in the geographical center of the state. Once I became aware of Lyme and other insect carried diseases, I started seeing my chronic patients in an entirely different light. Join me as I speak with the the most fascinating people in the Lyme community. If you know someone I should interview, let me know.
