Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD, MCSI (aka Dr. B) is a New York Times bestselling author, an award winning gastroenterologist, gut health expert and the author of more than twenty articles in the top American gastroenterology journals.
In this IG LIVE REPLAY I talk with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz (@theguthealthmd) about how a plant-based diet full of fermented foods could radically change the gut microbiome. A healthy microbiome is the so important to boosting metabolism, supporting the immune system, balancing hormones, and reducing the inflammation that can lead to a host of chronic diseases and conditions. We discussed elimination diets and how they can be hazardous to your health, fasting, the signs and symptoms of an unhealthy microbiome and what you can do with a few simple diet changes to help undo the damage. We discussed how your microbiome impacts blood sugar, cholesterol, immunity, mood, hormonal imbalance, brain health, and more! There is so much to learn when it comes to gut health and weight loss, gut health and brain health, what a gut healthy diet looks like and other important microbiome findings.
In Dr. B’s new book: “Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome,” he focuses on how the gut microbes thrive on fiber from a wide variety of plants and how we can achieve an optimal lifestyle by eating the right foods in abundance and diversity.
