Lockdown life (spending 99% of your time in the house with snacks on tap; tweaked workout schedule; pandemic-induced worry) is causing unprecedented levels of digestive disruption to women right now. But, if you're currently bloated, gassy, or seriously blocked up, we have good news: getting your gut health back on track can actually be pretty simple. Joining host Roisín Dervish-O'Kane to show you how is Dr Megan Rossi AKA the Gut Health Doctor, a registered dietician who investigates nutrition-based therapies in gut health at King's College London. She's also author of the bestselling book Eat Yourself Healthy: An Easy-to-Digest Guide to Health and Happiness From the Inside Out. In this episode, Dr Rossi explains why a well-functioning gut is essential for everything from good mental health to strong immunity, and how you can get yours in a good place - through lockdown, and beyond.
