How Much Does Water Help Hydration?
Can you ever have too much water in your body? If you are wanting your body to run optimally, you should know how do you know if you are hydrated.
In the 2 previous posts, I've discussed my approach of focusing on eating water for hydration rather than drinking it. The idea of forcing yourself to drink “x” amount of water each day, whether you feel like drinking or are thirsty are one of the many commonly held views of health and fitness that might be ready to be put out to pasture.
You might be surprised to hear me say that there are other things than kombucha for probiotics. It is entirely possible to get gut healthy with foods other than kombucha.
I've said for a long time that you don't need kombucha to get gut healthy. In this podcast episode of Get Good and Gut Healthy, I explain why you don't need kombucha for better digestion and give 3 alternatives you can begin eating right now to begin your journey to better digestion. I ultimately ask the question as to what happens if you don't like kombucha, are there alternatives?

What happens when you have too many probiotics? Is there ever a point when you ever have too many probiotics?
Your bodily system is delicate, so if you believe in the power of probiotics, it should be noted as to when, and if, you can have too many probiotics in your system. In this Go With Your Gut podcast, regardless of the method of consuming the good bacteria, I address the questions of, "Can I overdose on kombucha?" or "Is there such a thing as probiotic overdose?"
NOTE: Thank you so much for listening to this episode. I hope you learned a bit about what your body does when you have too many probiotics. If you enjoyed it, please click the "like" button below.

How To Stimulate Bowel Movement
There is a correlation between bowel movements and probiotics. It's often asked do probiotics cause bowel movements? Understanding that there is a physiological reason why when someone consumes probiotics or eats fermented foods why probiotics cause bowel movements.
Today I'm going to be talking about probiotics, and bowel movements. I know, great stuff. But, inevitably, people do ask when they take probiotics, or drink kombucha, or kefir. They end up going to the bathroom, and they want to know the reasons why. They think that it's a laxative, or maybe have questions associated with that, and I'm here to tell you that probiotics are not a laxative. Their main job, their main physiological function is to go in and break up sugars and starches in your body.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
