The Model Health Show

Over two thousand years ago, Ancient Greek physician Hippocrates posited this famous quote: “All disease begins in the gut.” Today, we have the science to back him up. Our gut health influences every single aspect of our overall health, not limited to brain health, heart health, and propensity to major chronic illnesses. 

In his new book, Gut Check, Dr. Steven Gundry uncovers the inextricable connection between gut health and our increasing rates of autoimmunity, mental health conditions, diabetes and more. He also outlines exactly how we can find healing and true health through restoring balance to the microbiome. 

Today, Dr. Gundry is back on The Model Health Show to share the cutting-edge science from Gut Health, including how modern agriculture practices have impacted our microbiomes, specific foods you should eat to improve gut health, and the critical role gut diversity plays in our health and longevity. This episode is jam-packed with the science, tools, and motivation you need to get your gut health right—so listen in and enjoy the show!
