What if eating less fiber and prebiotic foods was the key to optimal gut health?
You've probably heard how important fiber is to feed the bacteria in your gut and speed up digestion, but this popular belief may be doing you more harm than good.
Dr. Michael Ruscio, a leading functional medicine practitioner specializing in gut related disorders, joins me today to bust the most common (and damaging) myths about gut health -- including how fiber affects your gut bacteria.
Dr. Ruscio is also a clinical researcher, international lecturer, and best-selling author. His research has been published in peer-reviewed medical journals and he speaks at integrative medical conferences across the globe.
In his recent best-selling book, Healthy Gut, Healthy You, he explains how to fix your gut health step-by-step with evidence-based methods, and in this episode, he gives us a peek into the research.
Tune in to find out how your gut works, how the relationship between lifestyle and microbiota affects your health, why less fiber may be better for you, how to take probiotics the right way, and much more.
