Dr. Lo Radio Show

Jul 5, 2022

Welcome to another episode of the Dr. Lo Radio Show! I really enjoyed recording this episode, and I think you will enjoy it as well.

Today I am chatting with Holly Howe and we are talking all about why fermented foods are a great addition to better your gut health.

Holly Howe is a Fermentation Educator, cookbook author, photographer and blogger with a goal to have sauerkraut fermenting in 100,000 homes.

In 2014, Holly launched “MakeSaurkraut!” her fermentation website with everything you need to know to successfully ferment sauerkraut that you and your loved ones will enjoy eating. Holly
also teaches how to ferment other vegetables and fruits and how fermented foods can effortlessly—and flavorfully—improve your gut health. Holly believes that food is to be enjoyed and to also serve you.

We talk about so many great things in this episode. We talk about the origin of fermented foods. We also talk about the benefits fermented foods, like sauerkraut, have on the good bacteria in your microbiome. We talk about the importance of taking control of your own health, the energy-boosting benefits of fermented foods, how to make your own sauerkraut and the comparison
between fermented & non-fermented foods.

If you are listening to this episode and you or someone you know is navigating through any of the health issues we discuss, I would be more than happy to support you in the journey! I work with people virtually and in-person in San Diego. Feel free to reach out to me to continue this conversation: @doctor_lo
