    Hi Sue – another really interesting guest today. I’ve been experiencing the “joys” of my gut being a bit out of whack over the last few months – not sure how much is due to my other health issues and how much is just “getting older”. I’m definitely working on improving my microbiome – and this info is really helpful.
