Elissa Goodman: Soup Cleanses, Intermittent Fasting, and Other Ways to Heal the Gut
December 30, 2019
Elissa Goodman is a holistic nutritionist and author of Cancer Hacks. Despite the controversy, she’s a big juicer. Her soup cleanses—which include forty-five different vegetables—are becoming famous in LA. Inside her supplement box, there are probiotics, digestive enzymes, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, and B12. She likes adaptogens—and Tulsi tea—a lot. She’s into collagen, and in this episode, she goes back and forth with functional practitioner Will Cole about the best forms, while chef Seamus Mullen explains how he makes his favorite bone broth. They talk about what else is in Goodman’s tool kit for healing the gut and supporting the immune and digestive systems, why we should follow our own instincts, and what it means to be a flexitarian or to go 80-20. And: why, above everything, Goodman believes the inner journey is the most important one.
