    Wonderful interview, very insightful. I’ve actually been reintroducing micro organisms into the gut via fermented veggies and tea. I’ve had diabetes for 30 years, and it’s not been an easy road per se, but we have so much more access to quality care and resources to manage this disease. Thanks for the post.
