Best of its kind

Dr Ruscio’s podcast is my favorite health podcast I’ve found so far, it’s informative, always based on fact or personal experience ( which is always clarified by him or his guests) and most importantly done with respect for his listeners time.
He doesn’t go on and on with information overload or self-aggrandizing behavior. He presents the information in a way that we can comprehend and absorb.
I recommend the show highly and have shared many episodes with other people.

Realistic and doable advice

Have been listening to the podcast ever since I began reading Healthy Gut. Months into working through my gut issues - primarily constipation-I’ve learned a lot, but found contradictions among other authors. On vacation recently I began lowFODMAP eating and within 10 days was feeling much better. Especially appreciate the focus on step by step action, clearly delivered in the book, and not pushing to have lots of tests!
