The number-one reason people visit the doctor is problems with the gut. Not only do gut issues impair gut function, making life miserable, but they also are a contributing factor to many serious conditions such as cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes, and more.
On today’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Mary Pardee to talk about the gut-immune connection, mindful eating, why it’s so important to chew our food properly, and the benefits of an elimination diet.
Dr. Pardee is a naturopathic medical doctor and a certified Functional Medicine doctor who specializes in integrative gastroenterology and hormone balancing in Los Angeles, California. She is the founder of MODRNmed, a telemedicine and virtual wellness company that provides medical and health services to clients from the comfort of their homes. For those who cannot work one-on-one with a MODRNmed practitioner, Dr. Mary also created a gut-health course that dives into the most common gut-related complaints and natural solutions to start healing.
In this episode we dive into:
- The gut-immune connection
- The first place you should start if you have gut issues
- The benefits of walking right after a meal
- How an elimination diet can help you get to the root cause of food intolerances
- The importance of fiber for our gut health and how much we should consume daily
