Welcome to another episode of Gut Heroes! In this episode, I dive into a groundbreaking new report released by the World Health Organisation. It sheds light on the staggering influence of four major industries - tobacco, ultra-processed foods, fossil fuels, and alcohol. The report reveals the shocking tactics employed by powerful corporations to maximise profits at the expense of people's well-being. It includes: ✔️ How these 4 industries cause a whopping 19 million deaths per year globally (34% of all deaths) ✔️ Ultra-processed food industry tactics: delaying and blocking health policies, misleading marketing, targeting vulnerable populations ✔️ The consequences of failing to regulate harmful industry practices: declining public health and chronic diseases ✔️ Proposed solutions: stricter regulations on marketing, transparency, lobbying and conflicts of interest To access links to the studies discussed in this podcast: 🔗 Show notes For more information, head to the Gut Heroes website: 🔗 https://gutheroes.com ----------------------------------------- Disclaimer: Please note, this is for informational purposes only.

So many of the health problems we face in modern life are caused by, or exacerbated by, gut health issues. That's because at least 50% of what makes you 'you' is microbial. More importantly, 70% of your immune system resides in your gut. That means when microbial populations are unbalanced, or the immune system is overworked, it can cause havoc and we see a burst in chronic illness, inflammation, brain fog, tiredness and pain. That's why what we put into our bodies really matters. In this episode we're going to look at: ✔️ An introduction to the microbiome ✔️ Why this the 'alien' world (inside us!) is so important ✔️ How essential it is to take care of your gut and gut lining ✔️ What you can do (and avoid!) to help boost your health As ever for more info head to the Gut Heroes website: 🔗 https://gutheroes.com ----------------------------------------- Disclaimer: Please note, this is for informational purposes only.

The lead-up to your first rheumatology appointment can be a little scary or overwhelming, if you don't know what to expect. What will your rheumatologist be like? What tests will they want to run?

In this episode, I look at what the process is like for getting an ankylosing spondylitis diagnosis, why you don't need to be scared in the slightest and how to best prepare yourself. While I give my experience with getting a diagnosis for ankylosing spondylitis (which I have), the principles I describe are similar for any autoimmune disease. ✔️ What to expect from your first appointment ✔️ Getting into the best possible mindset  ✔️ How to prepare so that you get the most out of it As ever for more info head to the Gut Heroes website: 🔗 https://gutheroes.com ----------------------------------------- Disclaimer: Please note, this is for informational purposes only.

Changing your diet is hard, really hard. We don't all have time or headspace and modern life makes it even more difficult. We are bombarded with temptation, from every angle.

Can fasting really help you beat ankylosing spondylitis (AS) flares? I've found fasting an invaluable tool in my ankylosing pain management, which is why it is the subject of today's podcast.
