What’s New with The Perfect Stool Podcast?

Did you know that more than 100 trillion bacteria call your gut home? This bacterium is part of your gut microbiome, a collection of all the bacteria and fungi in your body that is responsible for controlling healthy gastrointestinal function. But the microbiome has a much farther reach—when it becomes unbalanced, its influence can touch the entire body. 

Lindsey Parsons created The Perfect Stool: Understanding and Healing the Gut Microbiome to dive into the intricacies of the microbiome. In her podcast, she discusses the microbiome’s influence on digestive health and obesity, as well as cardiovascular health, mental health, autoimmune diseases, and skin conditions. Each episode, Lindsey interviews functional and integrative medicine professionals, patients, and scientists about the gut microbiome, the current state of research, and how you can apply it to your life.
