Dr. Robynne Chutkan talking about GutBliss and Period Poop - Episode 143

Episode Summary

In today’s episode, I interview Dr. Robynne Chutkan. She’s an Integrative Gasterointerologist, founder of the Digestive Center for Wellness, and author of three books; The Bloat Cure, The Microbiome Solution, and Gutbliss. This is a super informative and fun episode where we discuss the difference between women's and men's GI tracks. Spoiler alert - turns out we have a lot of differences! We also talk about how hormones from pregnancy, menstruation, and menopause change your stool. Yes, I’m referring to period poop. Dr. Robynne did not shy away from the topics that we all wonder about but don’t ask. Learn more about her practice and books at www.gutbliss.com. Enjoy the episode!
