The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Jan 13, 2019

Poop. It’s something we all do, some more frequently than others, but it’s not something we often talk about. Getting into the nitty-gritty of your daily dooty can help diagnose all sorts of health issues, and that’s just what our guest, Dr. Marisol Teijeiro does.

Dr. Marisol is a qualified naturopathic physician who specializes in lifting the lid on poop. Her passion for cleansing the gut started from an early age when her and her mother would examine their weekly movements to try to see what was up with their health. Now known as the Queen of Thrones, Dr. Marisol helps women diagnose and treat health issues and tame menopausal symptoms by looking at their poop.

Find out exactly what Dr. Marisol’s 11 golden nuggets are and how they relate to your gut, mental, and spiritual health. You’ll also learn how much you should be pooping every day (hint: probably more than you think) and why you should be aiming for movements that don’t smell and leave behind no mess. And lastly, you’ll find out how menopause affects your bowel health and why castor oil becomes such an important supplement as you age.

Do you have a bowel movement every day? Do you know what the color of your poop can indicate? How do you connect your gut health to your spiritual health?

“If you’re constipated, you feel bloated, your pants don’t fit, you feel just horrible: foggy brains, you feel off/sick, and then when you’re running to the bathroom all the time, you’re scared to have a social life because first thing you do when you go somewhere new is to scope out the bathroom - because heaven forbid you have an accident.” (4:26)

“I cannot get a patient healthy if they are not having regular brown banana bowel movements.” (7:11)

“The digestive tract is like Toronto’s Union Station: a central hub where everything happens.” (12:51)
