Lately, hormones have been on my mind. I just finished recording a brand new Workshop training with Dr. Steven Sandberg-Lewis, ND about hormones, the gut, SIBO, and how it’s all connected. Dr. Sandberg-Lewis really explained to me HOW exactly the gut can impact our hormones (and it was information I’d never heard before). If you
SIBO, or Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, is a condition where the good bacteria that grows in other parts of the gut migrate to the small intestine where it’s not supposed to be. Dr. Mark Pimentel, and I have been chatting over the past year about what causes SIBO and how you can treat it.
Have you ever felt 100% hopeless about your gut health? Especially when you’ve seen multiple doctors and specialists… Tried this diet and that… Tested positive, then negative, then positive again… I get it!

The underlying causes has been found and you’ve been tested and retested. It feels like you’ve
It starts innocently enough: you decide to try an elimination or other specific diet for Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth like: Low-FODMAP Low-Fermentation SIBO Specific SCD GAPS or AIP At first, taking certain foods out of your diet really helps!

Is there anything better than a hot cup of coffee in the morning? I’ve always loved coffee, but I’ve often wondered: is coffee making my Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms worse?
