Listen to Episode 78

Sometimes nutritional deficiencies follow gut problems and sometimes they precede them. Learn how a lack of amino acids can impact your gut health, why gut issues, including H. pylori, may be leading to protein maldigestion, and how to turn things around. We also discuss iodine, pesticides in food, PPIs, Omega 3’s and how to ensure adequate nutrition with David Minkoff, MD.
