What is happening in your gut when you drink alcohol? If you’ve never thought about it, now is the time to give it some thought. On today’s episode of One Year No Beer, Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum explains what an imbalance in the gut biome is, what happens when you have an imbalance, and what alcohol has to do with it.

Dr. Ghannoum is the author of the book Total Gut Balance. He explains how people get involved with his organization, Biohm, and what happens when people have a gut imbalance. He explains that people usually want to know what they can do to rebalance their gut – which foods and lifestyle changes will help.

“I direct the center for medical mycology which is the fungal research. That’s why I’m known as a fun guy.”

Dr. Ghannoum also talks about the role that alcohol plays in the gut biome, especially in relation to problems like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Dr. Ghannoum explains that gut bacteria isn’t the only factor to consider – factors like genetics and lifestyle play a role as well – but that the gut environment plays a significant role in health.

Dr. Ghannoum talks about the differences between good and bad bacteria and how alcohol affects each. He also explores topics like leaky gut syndrome, what causes it, what symptoms a person with a leaky gut might experience, and how leaky gut and alcohol consumption are related. Listen to the episode to learn more about gut health and how it’s connected to alcohol, as well as what kind of benefits you might experience in your gut when you decide to give up drinking.
