Gut health is not just about feeling your best. Your gut is the epicenter of your body and governs immune function, hormones, and nutrient absorption. Yet a whopping 74 percent of Americans claim they live with daily digestive discomfort, including suffering from constipation, which isn’t just uncomfortable—it’s a sign that something is wrong in the gut.
In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Dr. George Papanicolaou, and Dr. Mark Pimentel about the root causes of constipation problems and how to feel better and rebalance your gut.
