In this episode of The Darin Olien Show, I chat with our guest Dr. Amy Shah about the gut microbiome and how it governs our lives in ways most of us don’t even realize. Dr. Shah dives into how modern medicine and the modern food industry are driving changes in our gut microbiome and what we can do to preserve our gut health.
We also chat about the mind-gut connection and why our gut feeling is one that we can continually trust and rely on.
