    “All disease begins in the gut.” Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said this more than 2,000 years ago, and we’re now beginning to realize how true it really is.

    Today we are joined by a good friend and a Digestive Health and Nutrition Surgeon, Dr. Chanu Dasari, to talk all about gut health and its role on overall health. Dr. Chanu talks about which foods you should avoid, the most common diseases when you have an unhealthy gut, and the gut-mind connection. He also shares his advice on what you can do to improve your gut health and become the healthiest version of you.
     
    Dr. Dasari is board-certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, American College of Surgeons, and is a qualified, licensed medical practitioner by the National Board of Medical Examiners and Federation of State Medical Boards. Dr. Dasari provides unparalleled expertise in minimally-invasive treatment options for the digestive disease, chronic inflammation, and cancer.

     

    Dr. Dasari’s clinical career extends to distinguished institutions around the world, such as Vanderbilt University, Oxford University (UK), and the University of California.

    His original research has been published in top peer-reviewed scientific journals and adopted by the US Department of Health (HHS) for wide-scale implementation. ABC, Good Morning America, NPR, Clinton Foundation, Fox News, and MTV have also recognized his impact.
