My guest today is integrative gastroenterologist Dr. Robynne Chutkan.
Studying at Yale University and then Columbia medical school, Dr. Chutkan took a job with Georgetown University Hospital. Then in 2004, she created the digestive center for wellness. Dr. Chutkan continues to help patients heal various health issues with proper nutrition and lifestyle choices from autoimmune disease, skin disease, eczema, asthma and so much more.
She even noticed that some underdeveloped countries have far fewer autoimmune diseases than our developed country. What was this based on?
Early in her practice, Dr. Chutkan saw patients improving their health drastically and finally asked them, “what are you doing differently?” Inspired by their improved results through healthy eating she started to explore this path. She is not opposed to medication, but she says there are quite a few options to getting better besides using medication as a first and only solution. Her latest book, 'The Anti-Viral Gut,' is out now. Enjoy!
