Here at the HER Podcast, we're not afraid to talk about any part of a woman's body. Including her poop.
It sounds gross, but paying attention to your poop is pretty important. Bowel habits are a strong indicator of your digestive health. The color, shape, and texture of your stool can reveal signs of infection, digestive issues, or more serious health problems, such as cancer. Plus, your poop can hold the secret to recovery for Covid long haulers.
That's right, we're going there. And taking us down this path is Dr. Sabine Hazan. She is is the founder of Ventura Clinical Trials and has been Principal Investigator and Sub Investigator in over 150 clinical trials.
Many of these trials were for Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI), enough that through her impressive recruitment she became known as the "Queen of C. Diff" in the clinical trial community.
We discuss what our poop says about us, and the role the gut microbiome plays on overall health, fecal transplant, and reveal the secrets behind our digestive habits and the rest of the body!
