03. The digestive machine – what if the money you spend on food is being flushed down the toilet?

The Shift Podcast Header Ep#3

The digestive system is a complex structure within our bodies. Its ability to endlessly function – digesting, breaking food down, and extracting vital nutrients is a feat of genius engineering. Therefore, when a component within that system is interfered with there can often be a knock-on effect that could impair digestion.

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.

Katherine dives right into the ecosystem of our gut and the potential complications that can occur when certain factors are compromised.
