Digging Deeper: The Probiotic Cure with Martie Whittekin
The Probiotic Cure: Join us as we ‘dig deeper’ with Martie Whittekin and discuss the importance of probiotics in our diets to overcome serious and painful disorders – from allergies to diabetes to osteoporosis to stomach ulcers.
The Probiotic Cure is a guide to overcoming many of our most common health issues. The book is designed to explain what our internal flora is and how it works in our gut and it also provides a listing of the most common health disorders that may arise from a bacterial imbalance. The Probiotic Cure provides a safe, natural, and wonderfully effective alternative approach to treating many of the major health problems of our time.
