I had real pleasure to talking with Dr Pran Yoganathan in this podcast.
Dr Pran is a gastroenterologist and gastrointestinal endoscopist based in Sydney who aims to empower his patients to embark on a journey of self-healing using the philosophy of “let food be thy medicine”.
We talked about gut health, digestion and the kinds of things that can go wrong.
Dr Pran began by summarising how our gut works in the context of human evolution.
Other things we talked about included:
· Gastrointestinal problems such as reflux, IBS, SIBO
· The impact of inflammation and oxidative stress on our health
· The role of fibre in our diet
· The microbiome and how lifestyle affect this
· Gastric surgeries
· Cancers, kidney disease, osteoporosis and acid/alkaline balance
· Leaky gut and skin allergies
Dr Pran shared his experience on how the foods we eat affect the function of gastrointestinal system and the role of protein, fats and carbs in this process.
Dr Pran shares his thoughts on the paper I wrote on protein called “A Guide to Protein Requirements” You can download this here. https://susanbirch.co.nz/free-downloads/
I am very grateful to Dr Pran for his generosity in sharing his time and knowledge.
I really enjoyed this discussion and I hope you will learn a lot from this. It is one you may have to listen to more than once, because it is jammed packed with content.
If you are experiencing gastrointestinal issues, this may be a great podcast to share with your GP.
If you enjoy this, would you please like and share.
