In another recent post, the expert spoke about the need to keep one's gut healthy. Adding a list of foods that promote gut health, he wrote, "Garlic, onion, chicory, banana, dandelion greens, asparagus, apples, oats and barley are good for the gut."
In the caption, he explained why gut health must be on our priority list. He said, "Our gut is everything. I'm yet to see a patient and a disease that didn't need work on the gut. From depression to cancer to Alzheimer's to diabetes, every condition, leave the gut out of your recovery protocol and it becomes just treatment, not recovery. Aim for recovery."
He further added, "Probiotics are useless without prebiotics, so build that diverse lifestyle and food plan. Prebiotics are usually consumed 30 minutes or an hour before food."
