96: Using Natural and Traditional Medicine to Fix the Gut Microbiome with Dr. Ken Brown

I may be a “Wellness Mama” but I’m certainly not a doctor, so I’m always happy to have one on the show! Dr. Ken Brown is a practicing gastroenterologist and expert on the issue my readers ask about most often: gut health. (Or more precisely, the lack thereof … ) Enter Dr. Ken Brown.
