Highlights from today's episode include:
Sharon Holand Gelfand: I have three young adult kids, but about 12 and a half years ago, one of my kids was diagnosed with Crohn's and ulcerative colitis, and ileitis. So it was like IBD, and autoimmune. And I never heard those buzzwords. I had no idea what anything was. All my son heard was disease, and he thought he was going to die
Sharon Holand Gelfand: Your gut knows. It really just became this mission of Holy cow. We're all smart, we're just not being directed to the right information, and we're throwing spaghetti at the wall, trying to figure it out. And really, it starts within us.
Sharon Holand Gelfand: Like Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine”. But then as I started working with my clients with the gut stool, the first thing was like, let's do a GI map. Let's see what is going on. Let's see what bacteria and viruses and pathogens are in that are lurking. Because they didn't just get there overnight.
