[10:22] This episode’s Feeling Good Superheroes are Edward and Jamie. Edward went on a mission trip to Africa and Dr. Phil told him to take probiotics before he left and while he was on his trip. When he returned, Edward gathered some friends together to tell them about his mission trip. He told a story about when everyone in the group got terribly sick, but he was the only one who wasn’t huddled up on the floor sick. He protected himself. Jamie went on a trip to Central America with his family and did not take probiotics and he and his family got sick and got all the stomach issues. He called Dr. Phil to ask him what he should do and Dr. Phil suggested they go get some kombucha drinks and probiotics, which they did and they were better the rest of the mission trip. Thanks to Edward and Jamie for being our feeling good superheroes today.
