She sees the human body and wellness through the lens of the microbiome. She looks at the connection of the gut's microbial ecosystem to the brain, immune system, our lifestyle choices and world we interact with. It provides an elegant mechanism of action for all of the beautiful tools nutrition and functional medicine has to offer.
