#64: Dr. Ulrik Hjerpsted - Secrets on how to get more energy, feel less bloated, and get better skin

health health & fitness podcast Feb 23, 2021

Listen to it on your favorite podcast provider: 



 Feeling bloated or having skin challenges? You are not alone!

One of the keys to improving all of this is through the microbiome. A subject that is gaining a lot of attention these days.

Therefore I got Medical Doctor Ulrik Hjerpsted for this episode of the podcast. He is the founder of the Copenhagen Center of Functional Medicine. Over the past 10 years, Ulrik took a step further into functional medicine and especially the microbiome.


In this episode you will learn about:

- Frameworks to evaluate if an initiative works

- Why Ulrik and I always look at our poop 😂😂😂

- Initiatives to start today

- How getting poop from another person might help you lose weight

- Why doing the fundamentals is more important than the newest hack

- Common misunderstandings about the microbiome

- Whether or not to do a microbiome test

- Ulriks' top habits
