How to Heal Your Gut and Improve Your Performance with Dr. Zach Bush – Episode 227

In this episode I speak with Dr. Zach Bush. He is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country, with expertise in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. The breakthrough science that Dr. Bush and his colleagues have delivered offers profound new insights into human health and longevity.

This episode is all about gut health and your microbiome. He breaks down the disconnect between the food on our plate vs. what is going on in your body and how our guts have become sensitive to grains, because of the chemicals in them. Find out practical advice/tips you can take to protect your own gut health and why we should all eat lower on the food chain and eat with variety/color. Lastly, why a five day water fast is key for athletic performance and giving your gut time to rest. Ready to get science and knowledge bombs dropped on you?! You will get this and more on this episode of the Renegade Radio Podcast.
