In Episode #141 we hear from three Gastroenterologists as part of a two part series on optimising gut health – Dr Sarina Pasricha, Dr Alan Desmond and Dr Will Bulsiewicz.
As these were by far some of the most popular episodes to date my team and I went back through and pulled out the most important parts and brought them together into this 2 part series.
In Part 1 (this episode) we cover:
- What the microbiome is
- What dysbiosis is
- The 3 parts of dysbiosis including what’s often described as ‘leaky gut’
- The importance of fibre
- What short chain fatty acids are
- Animal foods and gut health
- The ketogenic diet and gut health
- Bone Broth
- Gluten and IBS
- Juice cleanses
- Spicy food
- and much more
Part 2 of this series is more focussed on specific gut health conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
Happy listening. I hope you find it equal parts informative and instructive.
