The Lucas Rockwood Show

Did you know your body contains just as many bacteria cells as human cells–about 30 trillion in total? Around 3 lbs of those little buggers live in your gastrointestinal tract, and just as our planet’s soils are productive yet depleted, your gut microbiome is functional but often imbalanced and dysfunctional. No wonder you’re suffering from gas, bloating, acid reflux and even severe conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).  

To complicate things more, health marketers would have you believe that if you simply take a fiber supplement and eat some probiotic-enriched yogurt, you can correct the mess fast–but the problem is far more complex. On this week’s podcast, you’ll learn from gut health specialist, Dr. Rossi, the ins and outs of a happy belly. 

Listen and learn:

  • Fecal transplants risk vs reward (yup, people are swapping poo)
  • The importance of fiber, even the stuff that you’re unable to digest
  • Why gas and fermentation are natural and don’t have to cause discomfort and problems
  • FODMAP Diet to restore gut health and how to slowly reintroduce foods
