What if there was ONE area of your body you could focus on, where the tiniest of improvements would radically enhance ALL aspects of your health and wellbeing? Well, you’re in luck, because there is a part of your body where that exact equation is true: your gut! And today’s podcast guest — gut guru and functional medicine extraordinaire, Dr Josh Axe — is here to show us precisely how to upgrade this underrated organ to experience crazy improvements in your health, energy and life.

Dr. Josh Axe is a certified doctor of natural medicine, doctor of chiropractic and clinical nutritionist. The catalyst that sparked his food-fuelled mission was when his mum was diagnosed with cancer… for a second time. Determined to get her healthy again, Dr Axe helped her overhaul her diet and lifestyle to embrace whole foods and gut-friendly bacteria. Witnessing her incredible recovery lit a fire in his belly, and ignited his passion to help people get healthy by using nutrition to reclaim their health. An expert in functional medicine, digestive health and herbal remedies, Dr Axe is also the bestselling author of Eat Dirt and co-author of Essential Oils: Ancient Medicine.

    Do you have details of where to buy SBO Probiotics, Multi Collagen and Bone Broth Protein. I live in Indonesia where it is impossible to find these items, thank you.

    Also, I was looking for a ‘transcript’ of the interview with Dr. Axe (#73)

    • Hey Paul, I don’t have a transcript for this podcast yet, but it is something I am looking into. In regards to those products, I am not 100% sure but try iHerb or Amazon. Sending you love. xx
