How often do you hear if you eat this way or that way, or do this exercise routine, or eat at a specific time, you’ll reach optimum health? The truth is we have an entire universe of flora and fauna inside of us that operates despite our beliefs. It’s only when we begin to understand the human microbiome that we can understand health.


On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too.

Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. So, if you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. 

Dr. Zach Bush knows a whole lot about the microorganisms in our guts.

Living inside every person are trillions of microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other life forms. These microorganisms are collectively known as the microbiome. Listening to Dr. Zach Bush, MD, talk about the human microbiome is almost like a religious experience. This guy knows his stuff. And he is so incredibly passionate about educating us all on understanding our biological make-up. What makes Zach different from other scientists and researchers in his field, and why I wanted you all to hear what he has to say, is his unique perspective. He understands that this information can significantly alter your thinking on your entire life related to health and disease. And he wants to empower us all with this knowledge.

Zach is a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology, and hospice care. He is a thought leader on the human microbiome and is recognized internationally for his work on the subject. When Dr. Zach founded the Seraphic Group and the nonprofit Farmer’s Footprint, it was to fill a deep desire to develop human and environmental health solutions.

In this episode, Zach gets into some really technical and scientific information about the microbiome and how it relates to our health. But don’t worry, after he melts our brains, he drops some incredibly powerful concepts. What the good doctor wants us to know, to really understand at the core of our beings, is that we are capable of incredible healing. Healing of our bodies, and our minds, if we embrace our own power. Please listen to this one, guys. It might change your whole outlook on your body and what it’s capable of.
