In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Angie Sadeghi all about the gut microbiome, more specifically Colitis, which is a perfect example of you never know where an episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast will take you as we were planning on talking about parasites…but somehow, we took a different route. We love Dr. Angie because she is so knowledgeable in all areas of health and has a really great way of explaining complicated ideas in simple ways so everyone can understand. If you know someone with IBS issues, especially if they say they cannot eat fibrous foods, then you are going to want to share this episode with them.
When it comes to the human wellness experience, Dr. Angie says, “My passion is to provide healing through an integrative approach to keep patients healthy and youthful.” Dr. Angie understands that no single approach is right for every individual and so she offers a complete range of services to help individuals with gut problems, obesity, anti-aging, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and overall disease prevention.
Combining evidence-based medicine, her expertise in the digestive system, and her passion for physical fitness and plant-based nutrition, Dr. Angie has developed a comprehensive approach to helping patients recover from illness and live a healthy life. Additionally, she is part of a new movement called “The Plantrician Project” and is empowering individuals with the knowledge and benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.
Dr. Angie Sadeghi is a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine and a diplomate of the American Board of Gastroenterology. She has extensive training from the prestigious University of Southern California (USC) and demonstrates exceptional commitment to excellence in treating diseases of the digestive tract. Dr. Angie is featured in three documentaries as a leader in the field of plant-based fitness for health and weight loss. Other upcoming projects include a book, Trifecta of Rejuvenation and Health.
