Gut health is a hot topic these days, with more and more research showing that our gut health impacts so much more than our digestive system. The gut is now being implicated in a host of different conditions, from joint pain to depression. But why is gut health so problematic for so many of us in the 21stCentury? I discuss this with clinical researcher, author and gut expert, Dr Michael Ruscio, on this week’s episode. We talk about the increase in hygiene practices and antibiotic use and ask whether we have traded life expectancy and infant mortality for allergy and autoimmune conditions. We delve into what happens in the gut in the first three years of life and discuss what you can do to improve your gut health. We also discuss the use of probiotics and Dr Ruscio explains how you can figure out which probiotics are right for you. Finally, Dr Ruscio shares some fantastic top tips to help you live your best life. This is a really interesting conversation – I hope you find it useful!
