In this week’s episode of the Reshape Your Health podcast, you’ll learn how to improve gut health and digestion naturally. We are joined by Ashlee Symcox, RN, FNTP to help break down this topic in a streamlined and easy-to-understand way. 

She was on the podcast last week to talk about adverse medication reactions and is here for Part 2. A Registered Nurse and Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, she worked 11 years in the Emergency Department where she witnessed, first hand, the devastation of chronic Illness on peoples' lives.
