31: Achieve Optimal Gut Health by Healing Your Microbiome with Dr. Maura Henninger

How much do you know about the microbiome?


In this episode, I am joined by one of my colleagues, Dr. Maura Henninger, and we’re chatting about all things microbiome.


More specifically, we’re talking about what the microbiome is and how it affects our hormones, digestion, and gut health.


Dr. Maura Henninger is a board-certified naturopathic doctor based out of New York City with over a decade of experience treating complex, chronic issues with a special focus on the digestive system and how it relates to all aspects of health. She runs The Dr. Maura Practice, a collective of naturopathic doctors who treat a wide range of patients all over the world. 


After receiving her undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, her life-long passion for holistic healing led her to the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine. She received additional training at The New England School of Homeopathy. Dr. Maura writes and consults for several health and wellness companies and sits on the board of the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians. 


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • What the microbiome is and why it’s important
  • The testing options that you can do to understand your microbiome
  • How the microbiome is related to skin
  • Species that disrupt hormonal balance
  • Things can negatively impact the microbiome
  • How antibiotics, medications, alcohol, and stress can disrupt the gut
  • Some of the best ways to heal the gut
  • Emotional symptoms that are caused by gut issues


It’s so fascinating to me how many things in our system are affected by these little microbes that are living in us and how many things we can be doing every day to keep our guts in a steady state.


Our microbiomes are so closely related to how we are feeling, and that can be really frustrating to navigate alone or with little understanding of it. I highly recommend that you start talking to your doctors about your symptoms and do some testing to understand your individual microbiome a little better.


If you’re ready to start discussing your naturopathic medicine needs, schedule a free 15-minute call with me or visit Dr. Maura’s website to see how she can help you as well!
