We have an informative and candid conversation that normalizes talking about stomach issues, bowel movements (yes, we’re going there!), and many questions about topics that society has conditioned us out of regularly talking about. We talk about the connection between what we eat, gut health, our mood, and various chronic illnesses and find out some impressive facts about how fiber can be a hero when it comes to improving our health.
This is truly an information-packed episode (so much that we’re doing a part 2!), so get ready to learn some actionable steps to achieving better gut health!
