Exploring irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut and the gut brain axis with Prof. Eamonn Quigley
This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Prof Eamonn Quigley, all about Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and what we know and don’t know about the dietary and supplemental treatment strategies to help improve and resolve the symptoms associated with it. They also discuss intestinal permeability and ‘leaky gut’ (and the misnomer around that) and issues around testing for gut-related problems that are framed as ‘leaky gut.’ The gut microbiome is also touched on, and the importance of probiotics in microbiome support.
