Dr Wendy Christien - The Toxic Gut

--:--
When we consume a diet that is high in unhealthy fats and processed foods,
and are exposed toxins from the environment, the liver and the gallbladder are
overworked which can result in a toxic gut. Too much fat and not enough fiber
in our diets puts a lot of pressure on these organs which can lead to
gallbladder disease, which is a common symptom of a toxic gut.
