Description

It’s well known that chronic inflammation is at the foundation of a myriad of health conditions, including autoimmune diseases and metabolic disorders. But what’s less widely accepted is that the mind-body connection, specifically the gut-brain connection, can have immense impacts on our health and propensity to disease. Today’s guest, Dr. Will Cole is here to share about the intimate connection between physical and emotional health.

In his new book, Gut Feelings, Dr. Will Cole unpacks how to heal the connection between mental health and physical health, and how to restore the body through nutrition and self-love practices. Dr. Will Cole is a leading functional-medicine expert, the founder of one of the first functional medicine telehealth centers, and a New York Times bestselling author. He specializes in helping folks find the root causes to autoimmune diseases, thyroid issues, digestive disorders, and much more. Gut Feelings is the culmination of his work helping his clients heal through nutrition and restoring the gut-brain connection.

On this episode of The Model Health Show, you’re going to learn about how the gut-brain connection works, and how the combination of shame and inflammation might be destroying your best efforts in health and wellness. We’re having important conversations on healing the nervous system, the problem with diet culture, and specific practices you can implement to heal your body and mind. I hope you enjoy this interview with the one and only, Dr. Will Cole!
