“You Are What Your Bacteria Eats” with Dr. Momo Vuyisich
What are you truly made of? Join us as we talk to Dr. Momo Vuyisich, founder and chief science officer at Viome, to dispel myths around superfoods, fad diets, and quick health fixes, and instead take a deep dive into the bowels of our microbiomes.
The use of food as medicine has long been a prevailing concept, but how do we know what foods are the right medicine for us? How can we proactively treat the root causes of many chronic diseases, rather than reactively try to fix and heal our broken internal ecosystems? In this episode, we interview Dr. Momo Vuyisich, founder and chief science officer at Viome, a company dedicated to researching gut microbiomes and helping individuals take back control of their own health. Dr. Momo shares his personal health journey, what led him to Viome, the importance of understanding our unique microbial makeup, and how to restore optimal balance and health.
