MYF 50 | Restoring Gut Health with Herbs with Jocelyn Strand, ND

Welcome to Episode 50!

In episode 50, we interview naturopathic doctor, Jocelyn Strand, about strategies for both investigating and addressing gut imbalances. Although we've talked many times on the podcast about gut health, this is the first time that we've really dug into therapeutic supplementation and discussed some of the specific products we use in clinical practice to help our clients restore gut balance and improve fertility. This is a great episode for everyone to listen to, but will be especially helpful if you're dealing with digestive symptoms, hormone imbalances, PCOS, endometriosis, autoimmune conditions, unexplained infertility, allergies, skin issues, depression, or anxiety. Throughout the episode, Dr. Strand explains:

  • What the term "dysbiosis" means and which factors contribute to gut imbalances

  • How our gut microbiome is connected to overall health and specifically our fertility

  • Some of the ways we can investigate gut health issues

  • What biofilms are and why you need to include a biofilm disruptor successful gut protocols

  • Specific formulas we use in practice to address gut imbalances
