  1. I would like your opinion on Doctor Zach Bush’s new product RESTORE and David Sandoval’s new product Biome Medic. These products are suppose to help protect and heal our microbiome from the effects of glyphosate and GMO’s. These products were explained in the last video of the latest GMO summit with Jeffery Smith.

    1. Hi Lynn,
      I am open on RESTORE, but also a bit skeptical. Until something noteworthy is documented in a clinical study I will continue to use the gut treatments that are already tried and true. The Biome Medic appears to simply be a prebioitc, which can be helpful for some but can also cause reactions in others. It is fairly pricey for a prebiotic also.
