You might have noticed — talking about gut health and good bacteria is all the rage right now.

Everywhere you look, you see it: probiotics, probiotics, kombucha, fermented foods, and more…

And it’s for good reason.

We are covered in and contain billions and billions of bacteria. And while we’re still only scratching the surface of understanding

what they do, it seems that they have a major influence on everything from development and even behavior, to the diseases we get and how we fight them.

In essence, our body’s normal bacteria play a big part in helping us be us.

To help shed some light on all of these nuances, I spoke with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, who is perhaps best known as ‘The Gut Health MD.’ He’s an award-winning gastroenterologist who’s on a mission to change the way we eat and improve our gut health. He has contributed a wealth of research to this field, and via his popular Instagram posts, presentations, and media appearances, Dr. Bulsiewicz has lived up to his nickname!
