A Gut Health Episode
In functional medicine, we’re always seeking the root cause of symptoms. More times than not, imbalances in the gut are responsible for causing symptoms elsewhere in the body. If you think your gut health is “pretty good”… you might want to dig a little deeper.
Your gut plays a major role in your overall health. Your gut health can affect not only your digestion and absorption, but also your hormones, your skin, your mood, and more. If you’re having some hard times in the bathroom or are feeling fearful of certain foods because of how you’ll feel later, this episode is for you. Because often, it’s not actually about the food. This week, I invited gut health expert Amanda Sauceda to the podcast to chat about what’s normal and what’s not when it comes to the gut… and what you can do about it.
Amanda Sauceda is a registered dietitian nutritionist specializing in mindfulness and gut health. She is the creator of The Mindful Gut™ which uses science and strategy to help people improve their gut health. Amanda covers everything from what goes into your body, what happens on the inside, and even what comes out of your body.
In this episode, Amanda and I discuss how gut health can affect our hormones, lifestyle, and overall health.
This Week We Talk About:
- How Amanda became interested in nutrition and lifestyle for gut health and how her practice has shifted to the mind-gut connection
- The common digestive don’ts we all make and how to avoid them
- Tips and tricks you can use at home to monitor how healthy your gut is
- How gut health is connected to skin health
- Why you don’t have to eliminate foods and how to bring your favorite foods back into your diet
