How to Improve Gut Microbiome Health with Esther Blum, MS, RD, CDN, CNS

Jan 12, 2022

Watch this interview to learn how to improve gut microbiome health naturally with Esther Blum, MS, RD, CDN, CNS. If you’ve struggled with irritable bowel syndrome and weight loss, you’ll appreciate Esther’s expertise in this interview. In it, she talks about when and how to use the GI-MAP test to assess your gut health. 

She also covers the best and worst foods for gut health and concrete strategies you can start using right away to improve gut flora. Female gut health is often an overlooked area of weight loss. 

As a woman ages and goes through menopause, her estrogen goes down, which leads to altered estrobolome and leaky gut. It's also why food allergies or intolerances can surface in this season of life. (And why you may not tolerate alcohol as well!)

This is one reason why women tend to get more bloated in perimenopause and after menopause. If you’ve been struggling with belly fat, or belly bloat, be sure to follow these great tips to get results.
