Summer Bock is a Leader in the Autoimmune, Gut Microbiome and Gut Health Community. Summer Bock is a Gut Microbiologist and Master Fermentationist on a mission to help you achieve stellar digestion naturally using fermented foods, herbs, and food.
Summer is certified in Integrative Nutrition through Columbia University and a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
She is probably one of the most experienced practitioners you'll ever find that has an extremely deep knowledge of how the gut works. She has spent many years researching and experimenting with fermented foods and natural herbs. She has a very deep understanding of exactly what's required to optimize your gut health to maximize your overall health.
She was the host of the "Better Belly Project," which shared invaluable information on gut health for the average person. It's a fantastic summit for anyone. The tag line for it says it all - Crushing the Critters, Plugging the Leaks, and Balancing the Biome for Your Best Body Ever.
She doesn't just teach how to eliminate problem foods, which is unfortunately how too many people in the Celiac and gluten free community are living their lives.
She has created the "Gut Rebuilding Program" that shows you how to heal yourself from a wide range of ailments, and heal your gut. She's also created an advanced course - "The FermentationistTM Certification Program" - that goes deep into the science behind exactly how ferments work, what their benefits are, and where they're best used and avoided.
She teaches you how to actually heal the gut, so you can get back to eating most healthy regular food. She doesn't market her programs as elimination diets, though she understands what needs to be temporarily removed to allow healing. She also adds in fermented foods, which work to heal the gut and get it to the point of functioning.
This gut healing, when done well, will greatly reduce or completely make many autoimmune conditions go into remission.
She was very sick herself for many years, and this way of using fermented foods, along with her deep understaning of how the gut and digestive system works allowed her to fully recover her health.
She now shares this information passionately with the world through her videos, social media, summits and her programs.
