Dr. Doni talks with Dr. Destia Skinner about how to know if your gut needs attention, where to begin with supporting digestion, and simple things you can do right now to help your gut.
Millions of neurons run between your gut & brain, and we now understand that digestive system has the ability to communicate with the rest of your body. Dr. Doni explains how your gut works, and why it’s called our “second brain.”
The brain doesn’t just tell the rest of the body what to do – it also receives information from other systems. Understanding how the gut-brain axis works can help us assess and make adjustment to our digestive system and make better overall health decisions.
Did you know that not all bacteria is bad for you? Each day, the food we digest feeds the microorganisms inside our intestines—for better or for worse. The big question is: Are you feeding the bacteria to promote a healthy or unhealthy gut?
The bacteria that live in our gut have a huge impact on our overall health. So, when it comes to identifying the root cause of any illness, we have to start by looking at the health of your microbiome. Let’s take a closer look at the gut-brain axis, and how to get your gut bacteria functioning optimally.
Genetics isn’t everything when it comes to our health. New research is showing that diet, exercise, stress, toxins, and sleep have a much bigger impact on our health. Looking at the whole picture – genes and all the other factors – Dr. Doni outlines the steps to take control of your health.
