Gut health has exploded in the last few years, and I think now is certainly as good a time as any to be paying attention to our gut health. With the topic of immunity on our minds, the gut isn't often the first place we think of-- but it should be. As you'll learn, "gut health IS immune health!"
What impacts our gut the most? Turns out it's not just what you eat, but what you're not eating. In this episode, Dr. B returns to the show to discuss the dangers of restrictive diets, the reason why so many are experiencing digestive distress, and how the answers to fix your microbiome are revealed in his new book, Fiber Fueled.
This episode covers...
Embracing the now: identifying the positives of Quarantine
Releasing your to-do list, letting go of the need to be productive
Why gut health IS immune health
Gut health and hormones!
The impact of restrictive diets on your gut, and how it ties back to hormones (and my own experience with this!)
Touching on gut health and disordered eating
Using science (GOOD science) as your compass to better health
The 5 microorganisms (it's not just all "bacteria")
To wash or not wash our produce?
The connection between gut & mental health
This is just scratching the surface...
In Fiber Fueled Dr. Will lays out the science (spoiler alert: there’s a lot of it) that supports a plant-forward diet for total wellness. And if you don’t believe me, or him, then we’ll let 600+ scientific citations do the talking. Plus, Fiber Fueled has a 28-day jumpstart program with menus and 65+ recipes, along with essential advice on food sensitivities. And maybe the best part is that this book is fun and easy to read. I can't recommend it enough!
