Episode Info: On today’s episode, we’re talking all about gut health. This is an incredibly multi-faceted topic as there are many layers when dealing with gut health, gut treatment, and preventative measures. From food, to exercise, to lifestyle factors, to different auto immune issues — gut health appears to be an endless topic of discovery, with rarely a clear cut diagnosis or treatment. So today, I’m talking with Dr. Michael Ruscio. Michael is a clinical researcher and author who practices functional medicine with the focus on digestive conditions. Dr. Ruscio has his own podcast and blog where he talks about gut issues, and he’s a frequent speaker on this complex topic. Here, I ask him all the questions that us, non-doctors, have about gut health. Like how to determine what your issues actually are, what they stem from, how to fix them, and even the order in which to take these steps. If you’re struggling with any gut health or digestive issues, or you know someone who is, this is an episode that you probably won’t want to miss! CLICK HERE for the full transcript.
