THE MORNING SHOW
Norman Robillard, Ph.D.
Your Health Depends on Your Gut Bacteria
Dr. Robillard is the founder of Digestive Health Institute and author of the Fast Tract Digestion book series. He is also a microbiologist and researcher who spent 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry.
Dr. Robillard helps people with a variety of digestive health issues including small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, and chronic constipation. He focuses on the root causes of these conditions and applies science based dietary and behavioral strategies in place of drugs and antibiotics. Michael R. Eades, M.D.,
co-author of New York Times Best Seller, Protein Power, endorses his dietary approach.
SIBO has been linked to numerous digestive health conditions. Research in this area is the main focus of Digestive Health Institute.
Dr. Robillard received his Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and completed post-doctoral training at Tufts University.
