MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.

This week on MD for Moms, I interview Gastroenterologist Dr. Jennifer Bonheur about GI health. Many if not all of us have various GI issues relatively often, from constipation to an upset tummy and everything in between. While many of these complaints often self resolve, there are many health issues that initially present with GI signs and symptoms. Dr. Bonheur walks us through reasons to see a gastroenterologist and possible causes for different concerns. We talk about things like hemorrhoids during and after pregnancy, bloating and stomach pain, swallowing issues, IBS and more. 

Dr. Bonheur explains the importance of the gut microbiome and reasons it may be altered, as well as how the microbiome impacts our overall health. We discuss the necessity of probiotics and who benefits from eating a gluten-free diet. Common causes and symptoms associated with SIBO are also topics of discussion. There is so much to discuss – this is a not-to-be-missed show!
