“There is no question that the number one food to eat to grow a good gut garden is plant fiber, and there really can be no debate about that.”

— Robynne Chutkin, MD

Excellent Magnum Opus from Dr. Chutkan at the recent (February 2018) World Government Summit in Dubai. For some reason her Jamaican accent seems more pronounced than I recall from other talks and interviews she’s delivered. Let’s see if we can get a transcript. It’s THE Chutkan to absorb, without question, if you think only have time for one.

Dr. Chutkan received her bachelor’s degree from Yale University and her medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, where she also did her internship and residency and served as chief resident.

She completed her fellowship in gastroenterology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

Dr. Chutkan has been on the faculty at Georgetown University Hospital since 1997.

In 2004 she founded the Digestive Center for Wellness, an integrative gastroenterology practice incorporating microbial optimization and nutritional therapy as part of the therapeutic approach to digestive disorders.

A former Board member of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), Dr Chutkan also chaired the ASGE Training Committee and Public Relations Committee. She has authored dozens of journal articles and book chapters and has been a featured lecturer throughout the United States and Europe.

Dr Chutkan is the author of the bestselling digestive health books Gutbliss, The Microbiome Solution, and The Bloat Cure. She is a regular guest on the Dr. Oz Show covering digestive health, and is also a member of the Medical Advisory Board for the show. She was the host of the National Institutes of Health Clinical Roundtable Series and a medical consultant and on-air talent for Discovery Health Channel. She has been a featured expert on The Today Show, CBS This Morning, and The Doctors. She is frequently interviewed as a medical expert for the Washington Post and women’s health magazines and has been consistently named one of the area’s best doctors by Washingtonian magazine. She is an avid marathon runner and yogi, and is passionate about helping her patients live not just longer, but better lives.

Doctor Chutkan has a blog (@gutbliss) and a tweet feed.
