The Role of the Digestive Tract in Determining Overall Health, Part 1
January 14, 2020
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.
