So many of the health problems we face in modern life are caused by, or exacerbated by, gut health issues. That's because at least 50% of what makes you 'you' is microbial. More importantly, 70% of your immune system resides in your gut. That means when microbial populations are unbalanced, or the immune system is overworked, it can cause havoc and we see a burst in chronic illness, inflammation, brain fog, tiredness and pain. That's why what we put into our bodies really matters. In this episode we're going to look at:
✔️ An introduction to the microbiome✔️ Why this the 'alien' world (inside us!) is so important✔️ How essential it is to take care of your gut and gut lining✔️ What you can do (and avoid!) to help boost your health

The lead-up to your first rheumatology appointment can be a little scary or overwhelming, if you don't know what to expect. What will your rheumatologist be like? What tests will they want to run? Are they going to push a certain medication onto you? But it can also be the start of something amazing and that's the focus of this podcast.
In this episode, I look at what the process is like for getting an ankylosing spondylitis diagnosis, why you don't need to be scared in the slightest and how to best prepare yourself. While I give my experience with getting a diagnosis for ankylosing spondylitis (which I have), the principles I describe are similar for any autoimmune disease.✔️ What to expect from your first appointment✔️ Getting into the best possible mindset ✔️ How to prepare so that you get the most out of it

Can fasting really help you beat ankylosing spondylitis (AS) flares?
I've found fasting an invaluable tool in my ankylosing pain management, which is why it is the subject of today's podcast.
We're going to look at:
• How long I fast for, typically, before I see results• The exact approach I take when fasting (step-by-step)• What a fast involves (what to avoid etc)
It's important you only fast if it is safe for you to do so. Check with a medical professional first.
Tip: First time? If in doubt, go with 'water only' during your fast and do 72 hours.
