Fix Your Gut, Heal Almost Everything!

Episode 874 53m


There’s a foundational piece of Functional Medicine that surprises many conventional health practitioners: it’s that the health of our gut impacts every other part of the body—even the brain. With 60% of our immune system residing in our gut, it is the first place to look for an imbalance when treating illness. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Raja Dhir about all of the insults to our gut and how to recover gut health using Functional Medicine principles.

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.

Raja Dhir is co-founder and co-CEO of Seed Health, a microbiome science company pioneering innovations in probiotics and living medicines to impact human and planetary health. With unique expertise in translating scientific research for product innovation, Raja guides the development of Seed Health’s platform to enable rapid, efficient advancement of microbial research from discovery to market. He also leads the company’s academic collaborations, working with institutions like MIT, Harvard University, Stanford University, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and the National Institute of Health (NIH) to drive innovation across the fields of microbiology, genetics, immunology, and ecology. He co-chairs Seed’s Scientific Board –an interdisciplinary group of leading scientists, researchers, and clinicians–with Dr. Jacques Ravel.
