Podcast: Gut Matters

We live in a chaotic world. Everyone has stress - whether it’s financial struggles, challenges with relationships or family, job insecurity, political unrest, our worlds seem to be getting more and more complicated.

When you’re living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative together known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD, life carries with it a whole new set of challenges.

Gut Matters is more than a podcast. It’s a platform to create a community of thoughtful individuals who are striving to get the most out of life while navigating the world with IBD.

Dr. Marci Reiss looks at how our worlds impact our disease, how our disease impacts our worlds, and solutions for navigating the issues we face. We are going to hear from doctors and other healthcare professionals who have dedicated their lives to alleviating the suffering of IBD patients and together, we can use adversity as a catalyst for growth.
