Why Gut Health is The Key to Overall Health with Dr. Vincent Pedre

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

In this episode we’ll hear from gut health expert, Dr Vincent M. Pedre, author of Happy Gut, and Medical Director of Pedre Integrative Health, a private functional medicine practice in NYC. 

We discuss:

  • why gut health is the key to overall health
  • the healthiest way to consume probiotics
  • what you need to know about leaky gut (and why you probably have it)
  • why the key to healing any illness – especially auto-immune disease- starts with the gut
  • why wheat is problematic…for everyone, even if you are not celiac
  • how your favorite foods could be causing your digestive issues or even making you feel depressed

This is a MUST LISTEN. Dr. Pedre is a wealth of information. We met right before his Happy Gut book launch a couple years ago, and he has referred clients to me over the years. If you have digestive issues, I highly recommend you listen, check out his book, or go see him!

Key Quotables & Ideas

“Even stress can cause dysbiosis.”

You may eat super clean, but if you’re super stressed, that can throw your digestion…and health off track. 

“70% of the immune system resides in the gut lining.”

When your digestion is compromised, your immunity is lower, and you’re more likely to get sick, compared to when you have a strong and healthy functioning digestion. 

“A lot of chronic disease is connected to inflammation, and the biggest possibility for inflammation is the gut, based on how we eat…”

Food affects way more than our weight. Certain inflammation producing foods can also up our risk for all sorts of chronic illness and disease.
