Overview:

When it comes to health and nutrition, the topics people would usually think of are foods, exercise, and medicines. We put so much focus on what we put into our body, we end up overlooking what comes out of it. Today’s guest is passionate about educating others on gut health and helping her patients in what she considers an understudied field of medicine.

Dr. Kumkum Sarkar Patel is a practicing gastroenterologist who specializes in irritable bowel syndrome, swallowing disorders, and pelvic floor disorders. She’ll be sitting down with us to discuss the science behind gut health, how it impacts our mental health, and vice versa. Our digestive system doesn’t end at the mouth or stomach, and we need to remember just how interconnected our body actually is.


Don’t miss out on this enlightening episode as we delve into gut health-- the good, the bad, and the gross.
