Today we interview mystery illness doctor and lyme disease specialist Kristin Reihman about the importance of gut health. The first question she answers is, "Why should we care about gut health?" And then we are off to the gut races! This episode is so jam-packed with tough-to-find information about our own physiologies that you may need to listen more than once.

Takeaways from Dr Reihman - the 5 Pillars of Gut Health

  1. Stress management: includes sleep, calming the nervous system and more
  2. Don't put anything in your gut that your ancestors wouldn't recognize as food including artificial everything, food coloring, GMO's and more
  3. Put whole, real foods, veggies and healthy fats into your gut.
  4. Drink water. A good baseline is half your bodyweight in ounces of pure, clean water every day.
  5. If you are called to try it, do an elimination diet. Take Dr Reihman's 6-week Boost Your Immune System Now course if you are called to it!
