#33: Why microbiome restoration is just as important as bacteria eradication with Bella Lindemann

Today I have the pleasure of chatting to Bella Linndeman, in our 3 part gut dysbiosis series. Bella is the founder of The Functional Gut Health Clinic and a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner who loves helping people heal their gut. She specialises in natural protocols to address IBS, chronic constipation, small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), gut infections and other chronic digestive complaints. 

Today, in Part Three we discuss how and why we need to restore balance in the microbiome, after we finish removing parasites, bacteria & yeast infections.

To support you in your journey of gut dysbiosis, I have created a Dairy Free Cheat Sheet that will support you when you transition to an anti-inflammatory diet.
