Elissa Goodman: Soup Cleanses, Intermittent Fasting, and Other Ways to Heal the Gut

Elissa Goodman is a holistic nutritionist and author of Cancer Hacks. Despite the controversy, she’s a big juicer. Her soup cleanses—which include forty-five different vegetables—are becoming famous in LA. Inside her supplement box, there are probiotics, digestive enzymes, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, and B12. She likes adaptogens—and Tulsi tea—a lot. She’s into collagen, and in this episode, she goes back and forth with functional practitioner Will Cole about the best forms, while chef Seamus Mullen explains how he makes his favorite bone broth. They talk about what else is in Goodman’s tool kit for healing the gut and supporting the immune and digestive systems, why we should follow our own instincts, and what it means to be a flexitarian or to go 80-20. And: why, above everything, Goodman believes the inner journey is the most important one.(For more, see the goopfellas podcast hub.)

About The Show

What drives people to change, to heal, to reinvent themselves? How do we reclaim our health, bounce back from heartbreak, flip the script? On goopfellas, two friends who have become familiar with unlikely personal transformations have raw conversations with people who have experienced profound shifts in perspective and well-being. Together, functional medicine practitioner Will Cole, DC, and chef Seamus Mullen get at the catalysts that bring people out of their dark night and into their purpose. Each of their goopfellas guests—from athletes to actors to authors—is different. As are the hosts: Mullen himself almost died from rheumatoid arthritis, and Cole’s day job is helping people uncover and overturn the roots of dis-ease. But you’ll likely see pieces of yourself in all their conversations, reflected in every one of their challenges. And we hope, from the lessons they learned along the way, you’ll find something you need to bring about a change, big or small, in your own life.
