"Hey doc, what can I do about bloating? about this nausea?"

In this episode with humble and superfun mad (food) scientist Dustin James, MD we talk about natural remedies for motion sickness, mroning sickness, stomach aches, nausea, and bloating this gastroenterologist created as a solution for his patients. And for you! We discuss how the creation of a "food product" came with an interesting learning curve, how the Doctor is on a quest to make gluten free wheat (okay, that's a sequel episode) and how Tummy Drops are helping cancer patients negate the side effects of chemotherapy. We discuss the natural plant extracts that make all off this possible and set off to save the world by talking about solutions for healthcare reform. Ha. Enjoy!

*If you're a healthcare provider, definitely get in touch with Tummy Drops to get samples for your patients. :)
