Why You Should Love Your Germs with Maya Shetreat-Klein

Season 4, Episode7

s4-e7-mumboss-episode [DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS] Most people who know me don’t realize that I have a BS in biochemistry. I know. I don’t know how I did it either but I did and I actually did quite well at it...pat on my back…but when I was studying micro as a part of my required course work we did not think nor talk about germs the way we do now. Now? Now there is a realization that we need these germs to stay healthy. Welcome to season 4, episode 7 of the #mumboss podcast a show dedicated to enhancing your super mama powers. I’m your host Rachel Maskell and today’s guest is Maya Shetreat-Klein, author of ‘The Dirt Cure’, neuropediatrician, and founder of the Terrain Institute. You’ll hear Maya’s story in the interview but I want to share that motherhood often has us delving into areas we never dreamed of. We search deeper for answers for our kids than anyone else will and although these roads can be long and tedious they often lead us to new understandings. In this case, it just might be ones that can help change the world. maya-shetreat-klein

  • What to do when your kid has a fever
  • How to create a diverse microbiome
