ENCORE: The Role of the Digestive Tract in Determining Overall Health, Part 1
January 25, 2022
Liz Lipski, Ph.D., CNS joins us to discuss the latest edition of her authoritative book, "Digestive Wellness." First written in 1995 when I first interviewed her, she just updated it (5th edition!) in light of all the recent new developments in GI science. She discusses the pervasive role of the digestive tract in determining overall health; there are ramifications for the heart, the brain, and even bones and skin. Dr. Lipski weighs in on leaky gut syndrome, small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), fecal transfer, probiotics, gluten intolerance, food allergy, the role of stress, and the low-FODMAP diet. She discusses protocols for GERD, IBS, and colitis as well as key supplements to support GI health. There’s no one-size-fits-all diet for GI problems; protocols need to be individualized to suit patients’ unique characteristics and may require detective work. Empowering breakthroughs can be achieved through proper natural interventions. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Debunking Myths about Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Part 1
September 14, 2021
One of the world’s most authoritative experts on Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), author of "The Digestive Health Solution," dispels myths about this poorly understood condition. In an article entitled “Does Irritable Bowel Syndrome Exist?,” Dr. Benjamin Brown challenges the notion that it’s one overarching disease; rather there are many subtypes, amenable to solutions other than routine antispasmodics, antidepressants, and fiber supplements that deliver relief to a mere 25% of sufferers. And it’s not just a psychological disorder. He discusses the role of diet, probiotics, and herbs. What about the low-FODMAP diet? Gluten-avoidance? Food allergies? Histamine intolerance? Pancreatic enzymes? Cognitive-behavioral therapy and stress reduction? Is there a relationship between IBS and fibromyalgia? Click HERE for part 2.
