How Fermented Foods Can Heal Your Gut!


Summer Bock is a Fermentationist and founder of Guts & Glory, an online company dedicated to providing clients with the knowledge and actionable skills to heal their digestive issues naturally. Her practice is based on the premise that good health starts in the gut.

We met Summer at JJ Virgin's Mindshare event this summer and she was one of my favorites. She is not only incredibly knowledgable but also tons of FUN and I think you're going to love this interview!
