Dr. Kim Bretz, ND is a Naturopathic Doctor in Canada who is a passionate international public speaker and consultant on gastrointestinal health.
As someone who knows the pain of “IBS” and irritable bowels, I know the pain one can go through when it feels like anything you eat makes you bloated, sick, or constipated, or worse, running to every bathroom.
Kim talked about how eating foods should not feel and how to get to the bottom of some of the pain you might be feeling if you have gut discomfort. Kim shared her humor and passion and answers some key questions in the episode such as:
