For Episode 3, PSE supplements boss Shannon Brenton heads over to the Medical Sanctuary to speak with holistic GP & Obstetric Surgeon, Dr Elen ApThomas.
This podcast begins with an overview of the role of the General Practitioner in modern times, before launching into the prime discussion of the Gut/Brain axis; The very complexed neuro-hormonal communication system, which is ultimately responsible for keeping your body in a balanced state. Shannon & Elen drill down on how this bio-directional system affects you via its integrated web of neuroendocrine, immunological, microbial and primary digestive and excretory actions.
How stress affects you, the importance of a healthy liver, the role of the gut microbiome, Leakey Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and much much more are all discussed right here.
Dr Elen is a very authentic and dear friend, not afraid to call a spade a spade. Her dedication to the truth is what attracts me to her, and her willingness to think outside the square is what cements her in the top percentile of medical practitioners really making a difference.
