It's likely that you've heard the terms "gut health" and maybe even "leaky gut" referenced before, but are you aware of just how important the gut is? The gut, or gastrointestinal tract, plays a crucial role in our overall health and well-being, impacting everything from our sleep, mood, weight, digestion, stress levels, inflammation, chronic illness, brain health, and immune function.
It moves the food that we consume from our mouths to our stomachs, converts this food into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, clears waste from our bodies, and communicates with our brains through hormones and nerves to maintain our health and well-being. It is extremely important that we do what we can to keep our gut health in check in order to live happy and healthy lives.
Today, I’m joined by Naturopathic Oncologist and owner of Spark Health, Dr. Aliza Cicerone, who works with patients with a variety of health concerns, including thyroid abnormalities, hormone therapy, digestive disorders, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. She joins me to discuss why the gut is so important and how we can stay healthy and keep our immune systems strong by properly monitoring and caring for our gut health.
My daughter, Erin Shaw, also joins me today for our fourth week of Rut Busters, a brand new segment on Change It Up Radio.
