Care and Feeding of Your Microbiome
Listen now
Taking steps in the direction of better health is a multi-faceted process. Not only do we have to take care of ourselves, but we also have to take care of the trillions of microbes that call our bodies home. Rooted in the Earth element of Chinese Medicine, the ecosystem of our bodies is integral to our health in a variety of different ways from our ability to produce energy to feeling grounded and centered. Dr. Chris Damman joins us in this conversation to geek out on where the science of the microbiome verifies aspects of Chinese Medicine.  On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity: What the microbiome is and why it’s so important How things like temperature and timing of food can affect our health The four Fs of food and which areas are often missed Why resistant starch is an important facet of our nutritional intake Dr. Damman earned his BA/MA from Wesleyan University, MD from Columbia University, and is a board-certified, actively practicing gastroenterologist.
