Transforming gut health around the globe

Dr Megan Rossi founded The Gut Health Doctor in 2017 with a dream to empower everyone to take control of their health. As a scientist and practising clinician, she became frustrated that the ground-breaking research from her team and other colleagues around the world wasn’t reaching the public. Instead, dangerous myths and fads shared online were negatively impacting on the wellbeing of her patients.

Our mission is to inspire and transform everyone’s gut health using the latest science. Whether you suffer from a gut health issue or are looking to improve your health, happiness and future life, we have the evidence-based solutions you need.

Leading the way in gut research

From achieving a first-class honours in Dietetics to an award-winning PhD in gut health, Megan hasn’t rested in her quest to understand the link between our gut and our health. As a leading Research Fellow at King’s College London since 2015, she continues to investigate nutrition-based therapies in gut health, including: prebiotics & probiotics, medical diets, plant-based diversity, food additives and personalised nutrition technologies. She has received over £2.5 million in research funding and published over 50 scientific papers in international, peer-reviewed journals.

In 2017, Megan was the recipient of the British Medical Journal prize, and was presented the British Nutrition Foundation award by HRH Princess Anne.

A lifelong commitment to the gut

Megan was raised on a farm in rural Australia with the influences of an Italian father and a science-teaching mother. She cherished her wholesome and rugged upbringing, eating home-grown fruit and veggies.

In the final year of her dietetics degree, her beloved grandmother died from bowel cancer. The heartache of this loss and the realisation of the impact of nutrition and the gut microbiome propelled Megan into her ground-breaking research on the power of the gut.

Megan moved to the UK in 2015 to continue her gut health research and in 2020 was recognised by the Australian High Commissioner, receiving the ‘Young Australian of the Year Living in the UK’ Award.
