Dr. Robynne Chutkan explains how the standard Western diet and lifestyle are starving our microbiome, depleting the “good bugs” that keep us healthy and encouraging overgrowth of exactly the wrong type of bacteria.
The resulting imbalance makes us more prone to disease and obesity and negatively affects our metabolism, our hormones, our cravings, our immunity, and even our genes.
Dr. Robynne Chutkan believes in helping her patients live not just longer, but better lives. As an integrative gastroenterologist, she considers nutritional optimization, stress reduction, exercise and other lifestyle factors an integral part of the diagnostic and therapeutic endeavor.
