Episode Description

Digestive symptoms and conditions are extremely common. From reflux and belching; to indigestion, gas, and bloating; to IBS, IBD, Celiac and other chronic conditions. Why are these symptoms so common? Well the digestive system is very sensitive, and is tightly regulated because it is one of our main barriers, along with our skin, from the outside world. The digestive system has multiple jobs including breaking down food, absorbing key nutrients, protecting the body from microbes, getting rid of waste, and keeping us hydrated. It also has to maintain a delicate balance of living organisms, known as probiotics, which promotes health. The digestive system is prone to being thrown off by emotional factors, stressful lifestyles, partaking in poor quality food and drinks, and poor dietary habits like eating too much, too late or too often. Learn what natural medicine can help you do to help calm your digestive system, and ease those constant pains.

Dr. Maggie has had a love affair with health and natural medicine from a young age. She pursued a self-directed undergraduate degree in holistic health and sustainable development, connecting organic agricultural practices, local food economies, and holistic and herbal medicine. Dr. Maggie had the opportunity to live in Scotland, at the Findhorn Foundation, a spiritual and eco-minded intentional community, experiencing firsthand what it is like to live in a community that cares for the earth in a very sustainable and natural way. Studying herbal medicine she learned how to grow natural medicine, and used herbs daily to show people how to enhance the healing abilities of food. Realizing that health is the greatest gift we can give ourselves, Dr. Maggie found her calling as a naturopathic doctor. Passionate about empowering people to live a healthier and more fulfilled life, she is helping them to see how intricately connected we all are with the world we live in. The health of the human species is a reflection of the health of the earth. We must become better caretakers of our own selves in order to make this earth a truly viable and magical home. Dr. Maggie reminds people that health is a journey not a destination. It is about making daily, health promoting habits that create health and wellness. Dr. Maggie supports the whole person in order to heal, and loves to help people find their true purpose, in the hopes that they will live a more connected and sustainable life.
