One person we have to thank for that is Catherine whose book Gut Well Soon explores the science underpinning the health claims and misconceptions we have all heard but never fully understood. In particular, it explains why our gut bacteria is crucial to our mental and physical health, and explains what we can do to support it in a simple and accessible way. In conversation with Cindy Burrowes.
