The Model Health Show

Our bodies are home to trillions of microorganisms, known as the microbiome. Specifically, the science of the gut microbiome has exploded in recent years. Our understanding of our gut, what contributes to its health, and the implications of the gut microbiome are constantly expanding. Your gut health is closely linked to a myriad of health topics such as immune health, metabolism, and risk for diseases.

One of the pioneers in the space of gut health is award-winning gastroenterologist and best-selling author, Dr. Will Bulisiewicz. He is an expert in gut health, microbial health, and nutrition.

You’re going to learn essential and powerful information on the link between immune health and the microbiome, what your poop can tell you about your health, and bio-individuality and the microbiome.

We’re also going to talk about the important role that nutrition plays when it comes to gut health, some major issues in our food system that are harmful to our microbes, and how improving your gut health can alleviate a wide variety of symptoms and reduce health risks.
