Gut Health

Gut health and healthy digestion are arguably the foundation of good overall health. Recent new research has drawn connections between the health of your stomach and intestines and your brain, your heart, your immune system, and, of course your ability to absorb the nutrients that fuel all the biological mechanisms that keep your body healthy and functioning properly. Symptoms like bloating, constipation and heartburn can be precursors to more serious digestive conditions like IBS, SIBO, and even colitis. Take a look below to see some of Dr. Ruscio’s recent and popular articles related to gut health.
