01. I’ve got a gut feeling that you’re going to want to know this
Most of us understand that we should maintain a nutritious diet to keep our bodies in good health. However, what if you were to learn that there are other significant roles our digestive system plays within our bodies, besides processing our food for fuel? There’s more going on in our gastrointestinal systems than you may think, so now is the time to explore the real reasons why our gut health truly matters.
Welcome to The Shift, an investigative series that follows naturopath, nutritionist and author Katherine Maslen as she explores the dysfunctional nature of the health industry and provides people with the tools, knowledge and understanding to make the shift in their lives. Each episode of The Shift features interviews with industry experts in gut and general health from across the globe. They accompany Katherine in tackling the difficult questions surrounding global health. If you want to make the shift towards more informed decisions regarding better health, then this podcast is for you.
In episode #1 of The Shift – I’ve got a gut feeling that you’re going to want to know this, Katherine uncovers just how significant our gut health is, and whether there are links to other functions within our bodies, such as mental health.
