  1. Kiran is fantastic. Always love hearing his talks. I always learn something new. He clearly knows his stuff and manages to teach in an informative , yet accessible way.
    Would love to have more detail on how to take the products he mentions. Currently undergoing a parasite cleanse, keto diet and intermittant fasting and keeping my Lymes under controll. Thank you Dr Jockers for making these and other talks available on line for free. So very grateful. Sending best wishes and blessings , from France.

  2. I really appreciate your podcasts Dr. Jockers! They are so informative with great subject matter. I always look forward to hearing interviews with Kiran Krishnan. He is extremely knowledgeable in the microbiome which I find so interesting. I would request though that he specifically discusses in the future the time frames for taking Regular probiotics and spore probiotics. I take regular probiotics daily, then stop for 3-4 days and then resume. I alternate every 3-4 months with a month of spore probiotics for a month. Not sure if this is a reasonable protocol for a healthy person. Is it ok to take any probiotics daily forever with a 3-4 day break monthly? A side note; I drink Kombucha daily. I would appreciate it if this topic frequency for healthy individuals could be addressed with Dr. Krishnan in the next podcast with him. Thank you!

      1. Dr. Jockers thanks so much for your response! Just glad to hear that taking probiotics long term as part of my daily regimen is not detrimental to my health. I will continue doing this as well as other protocols that I’ve learned from you (ie. intermittent fasting) for as long as I live! And that should be a long time! 🙂

  3. Great interview with a great guest. Would love to hear another more in-depth interview with Kiran on whatever topics you decide. Really look forward to it.
