As you know by now, imbalances in the gut often trigger ailments throughout the whole body.
For example, a rise in blood cholesterol may be a protective mechanism to buffer the body from leaky gut.
On the flip side, a common digestive medicine can affect the entire cardiovascular network.

In this podcast, Dr. Kathryn Retzler and I discuss key blood tests that everyone over 40 should get to assess their true cardiovascular risk.
She talks about how hormone balance is connected to heart and brain health and that there are techniques to track brain function as we age.
She and I also discuss why more and more women have heart disease and how it’s decreasing the quality of life in many middle-aged women.
Patients fly in from all over the United States to see Dr. Retzler, and she’s often a keynote speaker at medical conferences. Listening to her is instructive.
