Rowan Sanderson sits down with microbiologist Dr. Emily Stein of Primal Health to discuss the importance of the microbiome in dental health and beyond. It’s often repeated that there are more bacteria on and around us than we have actual cells. Bacteria can even be considered our “friends”, being our first line of defense against pathogenic viruses.
Emily presents her brainchild, TEEF!: a prebiotic that drives the metabolism of bacteria below all the mucosal surfaces (ex. gumline, tongue, etc.) to grow the protective bacteria and, at the same time, selectively targets the harmful, disease-causing bacteria to grow through nutrient pressure.
According to Emily, when it comes to chronic diseases, the microbial component is often ignored in medicine—veterinary and human. TEEF!’s goal is to create a healthy microbiome. She shares the how and why behind this product, including a couple of tragic personal experiences that served as the catalyst for TEEF!.
