Dr. Samir Kakodkar is an IBD specialist at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and did his IBD training at Northwestern. Samir hosts a podcast called Against the Grain which investigates new ideas and controversies in the field of IBD.

In this interview, you’ll hear how Dr. Kakodkar himself has IBD and tried some of the protocols in my book, Listen To Your Gut, several years ago. This is an interesting interview (almost 2 hours long!) where there is a lot of push-pull between viewpoints. Perhaps you too find yourself going back and forth between medical and natural; or perhaps trying to integrate the two?

As Samir says in his description of our podcast:

“We had an epic almost 2 hour long conversation about her methods to treat Crohn’s and colitis. We talked about the limitations of conventional medicine, her treatment protocols, mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis, the dogma of diets, tricks to make exclusive enteral nutrition more palatable, electromagnetic radiation/5G amongst other topics that most conventional doctors would think of as “out there” but I’m not afraid to delve into.”

Enjoy! And feel free to check out Dr. Kakodkar’s other podcasts – like this one on Cannabis/Medical Marijuana for Crohn’s and Colitis.
