Dr. Raphael Kellman

Dr. Kellman is one of the pioneering medical doctors to recognize the unseen ecology of microbiome bacteria, and how it could be leveraged to provide a revolutionary new approach to healing. He wrote the first book on the microbiome, The Microbiome Diet, which addresses practical ways in which microbiome science can be used to restore health and healing. Tens of thousands of readers have followed his protocols with significant success.
