Considered one of the leading experts in the treatment of gastrointestinal conditions with natural medicines, this week I welcome Jason Hawrelak. Dr Hawrelak is a naturopath, herbalist, and nutritionist with nearly 20 years of clinical experience. He regularly consults with patients from all over Australia and overseas who come to him for his expertise, extensive background knowledge, and experience in treating gastrointestinal conditions. Jason believes in the importance of ‘food as medicine’ and an individualised approach to care - using a range of skills and healing modalities, including dietary guidance, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle counselling to help patients achieve their health goals.
In this episode Dr Hawrelak provides a clear and simple definition of the Gut Microbiota, Gut Microbiome and Gut Dysbiosis. We explore why gut health and interest in the area has exploded in the last decade. We talk about the impact of antibiotics on the ecosystem within the gut and other influencing factors. Jason also shares why the Gut Microbiota is such an important part of health by explaining the links between the gut and health conditions such as IBD, eczema, diabetes, mood, Parkinson’s, metabolic disease, body weight and so much more.
It’s no longer ok to simply reserve treating gut health for those with digestive symptoms, as you will learn from this episode, everybody should care about their gut microbiota!
