Back in 2020 when I started this podcast, the Better Belly Podcast, one of my MAIN goals was to create content that BUSTED prominent myths about how to heal your gut and end constipation.

As a gut health expert and someone who failed to heal their own gut using the generic advice, I felt (and still feel) a passion to cut the crap and bring clarity to those who were trying SO HARD to heal their gut - yet getting no where.

The truth is: eating magnesium, drinking water, chewing your food, taking probiotics, eating clean, or doing a juice cleanse IS NOT working anymore.

In 2023, research by Ipsos showed that 20% of Americans say that "nothing they've tried to heal their gut has worked" and "they feel that they're at a dead end."

In celebration of my birthday (today!!) and all the myth-busting we've done over the last 3 years on the Better Belly Podcast, I'm sharing my top myth-busting episodes as an easy directory on this episode. I'll be sharing a quick background and thoughts on each episode, and then sharing links in the shownotes for you to go check them out.

It's time to get gut-healing freedom from these myths.

  1. Ep. 2// Why the Low FODMAP Diet Isn’t Healing Your Gut
  2. Ep. 3// Why Probiotics Aren’t Healing Your Gut
