Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr Laura M. Brown ND 

Yes, digestion I mean, we need rest and digest. If we're always in fight or flight, or freeze, right, we're not digesting. So, and I argue that we not only have to digest our food, we have to digest the world around us.


Dr Laura M. Brown ND  11:46

It's so true. I mean, our digestion doesn't start when the food hits our stomach, it starts literally when thinking about it, what are we going to eat for dinner tonight, and then shopping for it, and then preparing it and cooking it and enjoying it, and just appreciating the textures and the colors and the aromas.


Dr Laura M. Brown ND 

Nobody has the digestive enzymes to break down gluten. That's a fact. You know, it's a grain that is a fiber that we take in and it bypasses and goes down into the large intestine where it's fermented. And that's why it's such a good prebiotic, it's fermented and helps feed, but on the way down for those of us who are sensitive, it can damage the areas in the tracks and in the ducts up into the by the gallbladder and the pancreas kind of those areas there in the liver. And then it can also damage the small intestine as we know the villi in the small intestine.



Dr. Laura M. Brown, is a registered naturopathic doctor with a functional medicine approach. She recognizes patterns, removes obstacles and stimulates the body’s natural mechanisms to repair damage and rebuild health. She is owner of SOUTHEND Natural Medicine, a bestselling author of Beyond Digestion, a HeartMath Certified Practitioner, a level two Certified Gluten Free Practitioner and holds the designation of ADAPT Trained Practitioner from Kresser Institute, the only functional medicine and ancestral health training company.

Core purpose/passion: Practically, I am passionate about gut health and how it connects to the health of the rest of the mind, body and soul. I believe we must learn how not only to digest our food, but also the world around us. That means discerning what one needs to take -or not take in - and how to let go of what we are not meant to hold - physically, emotionally, spiritually.
