Covid-19 has laid bare how little we still know about our interactions with viruses, what role our gut plays in the process, and whether there is a reciprocal relationship between plague and host. What is less mysterious for those who study the global virome is how a modern pandemic starts and what we can do to avoid them in the future.

Today, Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary is joining us to share the philosophy of Ayurveda and discuss some of the modalities like discovering your dosha, sound healing, oil pulling, eating according to our circadian cycle, and so many more.
To satisfy all your burning questions about Covid-19 and further educate ourselves on how the immune system interacts with our gut, I’ve got Dr. Susan Blum returning to the show to discuss all things antibodies.
It’s the season 3 finale Q&A episode! And I have a dream guest here with me to answer all your lingering SIBO queries: the king of SIBO himself, Dr. Mark Pimentel. There were a few recurring macro themes to your questions, so in today’s episode, we’re going to focus on Post-Infectious IBS, Methane overgrowth, and Hydrogen Sulfide SIBO.
Woody plants with lots of fiber can be a tough hurdle for someone with a damaged gut. And yet, it’s that very same fiber that research indicates is the key to healing some of our biggest overarching gut problems. It can feel like a fine line to walk. Today Dr. Will Bulsiewicz is on the show to help us navigate that tightrope. In our conversation, he explains why fiber is the key to healing dysbiosis, leaky gut, and inflammation.
When it comes to nutritional science, there are so many complicated variables to sort through in determining whether or not an ingredient is good for your health. One that doesn’t get talked about enough? How it’s cooked. Chef David Bouley shares the power of fermentation, the role of certain prebiotic ingredients, and which often overlooked items can become digestive gold when prepared properly.
In today’s conversation, we are going to discuss one specific function of the relationship between fungi and bacteria: the joint colonies that form to ensure their survival. This defensive strategy is called a biofilm, and the presence of these fortresses in the gut is one reason why antibiotic or antimicrobial treatments like those used to target SIBO can fail.
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome only got an official diagnosis code a few years ago, and yet, it is a condition that explains so much about what goes wrong with the immune system and how that dysfunction can lead to chronic inflammation. If you loved last season’s episode on histamine intolerance (and I know many you did – it was one of the most popular of the year!), today’s interview is the perfect follow-up conversation.
In today’s conversation, we talk all about how to give your detoxification pathways a boost, including giving a thumbs up or down to some trendy tactics like celery juice, infrared sauna, coffee enemas, and many more. Joining me is functional medicine practitioner Dr. Jessica Peatross, who shares how she tests patients for high levels of toxicity like heavy metals, mold exposure, and pesticides.
Celiac disease is a big risk factor for SIBO, and yet, it’s often an overlapping condition that many doctors miss. In today’s conversation, I’m joined by Dr. Lisa Shaver to discuss the relationship between leaky gut, gluten, and the body’s autoimmune response in someone with celiac disease—and how these mechanisms can lead to other gut disorders like SIBO.
In today’s episode, we talk about the hygiene hypothesis and how some people today are trying to right the wrongs of their immune system by reintroducing certain worms into their bodies. Spoiler alert: I’m one of them! This practice is called helminth therapy, and no, it’s not at all sanctioned by the FDA. However, many desperate chronically ill patients have resorted to trying it and the stories include some incredible transformations.
Environmental toxins are the giant purple elephant in the room. They are often the last thing to be addressed on someone’s journey to healing a chronic condition, and yet, the inconvenient truth is that everyday exposures--in our homes, our drinking water, our personal care products, even out mattresses--are doing more harm than we often give them credit for. Today's guest Lara Adler is here to help you detox the areas of your life that are within your control.
