In the second episode of our 6-part series with Dr. Robynne Chutkan, gastroenterologist at Georgetown University Hospital, founder of the Digestive Center for Women and author of the bestselling book The Microbiome Solution, joins Jillian to discuss the impact of medications on your gut. From Advil and NSAID’s, antibiotics, aspirin, SSRIs, benzodiazepines, antihistamines, Proton Pump Inhibitors and more. Dr. Chutkan tells us everything we need to be wary of and explains the issues with our “pill for every ill” medical system, outlines the side effects of these drugs, including when it’s appropriate to take them and most importantly, for how long. She breaks down the 3 key areas of importance when it comes to healing your gut to optimize your health – stomach acid, gut lining, and gut biome – and how to properly care for them. Plus, a discussion on what actually causes ulcers and how to help heal them!
