Habits & Health episode 69 with Elizabeth Gasson-Hargreaves, a Functional Medicine Practitioner and Nutritional Therapist.  15 years ago, her son Charlie had less than 24 hours to live had he not received vital antibiotics which saved his life. This had a major impact on Elizabeth.

Charlie was 6 weeks old and had bacterial meningitis.  
Following his recovery, she had two choices: to live with fear every time her son became unwell or to understand what made him so susceptible to this disease - or dis-ease within his microbiome. 
This led Elizabeth on a journey of discovery and she realised that disease was more likely to be about the internal environment.
Which helped her understand how important microbes were; not just for us internally, but for the soil in which we grow our food.
The soil in our gut and the soil in the ground are deeply connected. As Franklin Roosevelt said, “the Nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself”.  
She believes everyone has the right to healthy food, grown in a way that preserves our soil, not destroys it.
