    EP 52 | SIBO Research Update: Developments in Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide Treatments with Dr. Mark Pimentel

    EP 52 | SIBO Research Update: Developments in Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide Treatments with Dr. Mark Pimentel

    Unless you’re new around here, you might have noticed it’s been a while since our last episode. In fact, you may have thought you’d never hear from me again. But NO! I’m popping back into your podcast feed with a very important year of SIBO in review: an update on all the things that have happened in the world of IBS research since we hung up our mics after the end of the 4th and final season of the podcast. I am so thrilled to have a return guest, the king of SIBO himself, Dr. Mark Pimentel. If you’re been down the SIBO rabbit hole for a while now, Dr. Pimentel likely needs no introduction. He’s the director of The Pimentel Lab at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, where he researches many pieces of the puzzle related to IBS, gastrointestinal motility and bacterial overgrowths. He’s published dozens of studies on these subjects, and it’s fair to say that much of the data-backed information we’ve covered throughout the 4 seasons of this podcast, has been discovered through Dr. Pimentel’s work.
    He was last on the show almost 2 years ago in February 2020, and in that interview he promised that there would be many exciting developments for those with Post-Infectious IBS, Methane overgrowths, and Hydrogen Sulfide SIBO.
    So today we’re going to hear a little status update.

    EP 51 | Ask a SIBO Amigo: My Best Advice from 4 Seasons of SMS (Part 2)

    EP 51 | Ask a SIBO Amigo: My Best Advice from 4 Seasons of SMS (Part 2)

    It's the LAST episode of the podcast folks. I know, I know. I'm really bummed too. But I'm closing it out with the second installment of my ASK A SIBO AMIGO solo episode, and we are talking all about diet and putting your new food rules into action in the kitchen.
    As the podcast comes to a close, I wanted to leave you SIBO Amigos with some of my hardest earned lessons from the trenches. The process of writing the SIBO Made Simple book, in many ways, was a process of distilling their wisdom into super practical takeaways and to-do's. So the entire manuscript is kind of one big extension of the SIBO Amigo Digest. But I still managed to simplify even further and come up with 10 rules of thumb for each step of the SIBO journey: investigation, treatment, diet and cooking.
    In today's episode we will talk about my biggest pieces of advice for the food piece. It's a short and sweet one with yours truly that will help you step away from the minutiae and focus on the big picture goals of healing.

    Lastly, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who's written me about how the podcast has been a game changer for them. It was only supposed to be 12 episodes, but once I started peeling back the layers of the onion, I just couldn't stop. It was such a JOY to produce and you guys make every bit of hard work worth it. It's not a goodbye - just a see you later! And who knows, as new research emerges, I might just be back for more.

    EP 50 | Ask a SIBO Amigo: My Best Advice from 4 Seasons of SMS (Part 1)

    As the podcast comes to close, I wanted to leave you SIBO Amigos with some of my hardest earned lessons from the trenches. It has been an utter pleasure producing this podcast and getting to interview some of the most prolific practitioners in the SIBO space. The process of writing the book, in many ways, was a process of distilling their wisdom into super practical takeaways and to-do's. So the entire manuscript is kind of one big extension of the SIBO Amigo Digest. But I still managed to simplify even further and come up with 10 rules of thumb for each step of the SIBO journey: investigation, treatment, diet and cooking.
    In today's episode we will talk about my biggest pieces of advice for the first two legs, including how to tackle root causes, interpret SIBO tests, and how to deal with your mindset throughout treatment. It's a short and sweet one with yours truly that will help you step away from the minutiae and focus on the big picture goals of healing.

It’s made by simmering organic ingredients for 16 hours with humanely raised poultry and hand-trimmed tops of leeks and scallions. You won't find any flavoring agents that may add taste without FODMAPs, but can exacerbate other health issues. Even more exciting, Gourmend Foods is constantly working on new products to solve for some of the biggest IBS pantry cooking issues. They recently introduced a garlic scape and garlic chive powder that can help you keep those incredible aromatics in your cooking without the FODMAP content.

    EP49 | SIBO Relapse, Retreatment & Prevention + New Therapy Ideas That Give Us Hope with Dr. Allison Siebecker

    EP49 | SIBO Relapse, Retreatment & Prevention + New Therapy Ideas That Give Us Hope with Dr. Allison Siebecker

    We are ending the podcast where we began: with the incredible Dr. Allison Siebecker. In this wind-down episode, I wanted to cover some frequently asked questions around relapse, retreatment and prevention. So many people end up in cycles of SIBO that they feel they will never exit from. But there is so much to be hopefully about, even for chronic SIBO cases, and this conversation really shows why.
    Not only does Dr. Siebecker help troubleshoot some scenarios of stubborn SIBO, she gives an overview of an entire new toolkit of therapies that have shown incredible clinical results. None of these ideas involve aggressive herbals or antibiotics—in fact, very few require any pills at all.
    Even if you feel you know everything there is to know about SIBO, I assure you this episode will open your mind to a whole new world of healing.
    A quick taste of what we’ll cover: How many courses of herbs and antibiotics are too many What are the signs that someone is reacting to a treatment itself or die-off How long do you wait to retest after treatment? And when is retesting not worth it When to start prokinetics and how long to take them for A whole arsenal of new therapies: Frequency Specific Microcurrent, Neural retraining systems, Neural therapy, Electrical stimulation, Myofascial release, Craniosacral therapy, Hypnotherapy, Immunoglobulins, Low Dose Immunotherapy, Peptides, Tapping and more!

    EP 48 | SIBO Success Stories: Real Patients Talk About What It Took to Come Out on the Other Side with Bethany Ugarte and Alison Marras

    EP 48 | SIBO Success Stories: Real Patients Talk About What It Took to Come Out on the Other Side with Bethany Ugarte and Alison Marras

    This is part two of my SIBO success stories series, and the conversations with today’s guests cover so many overlapping conditions.
    In case you missed the last episode: the majority of questions I get asked via email and Instagram are about my personal experience with healing SIBO, and even though I remind these sufferers again and again that every person’s body is different, I understand how refreshing and important getting all the nitty gritty details can be. Which is why I decided to do not one, but TWO episodes dedicated to women who have overcome their IBS.
    My first guest is Bethany Ugarte who is the prolific instagrammer behind lilsipper, and author of the new book Digest This, a beautiful cookbook that features all the recipes she used to heal her gut. Bethany’s story is extreme and ultra-inspiring. She was once so underweight it hurt to sit in a chair. We talk about how she got back on her feet, literally, and what it took to manage her yeast overgrowth and gastroparesis.
    My second guest in the lovely Alison Marras, who is a nutritional therapist and recipe creator behind the site Food By Mars. Alison is a fellow member of the HashiPosse and really went through the ringer with methane SIBO and hair loss.

    EP 47 | SIBO Success Stories: Real Patients Talk About What It Took to Come Out on the Other Side with Sarah Kay Hoffman and Davida Lederle

    Before I started my SIBO treatment way back in 2017, I did what I do best: contact every person I knew who had ever had SIBO and force them to endure a game of 101 questions, gut edition. These conversation were SO helpful though, perhaps even more helpful than the internet research rabbit hole I eventually fell down.
    The majority of questions I get asked via email and Instagram are about my personal experience with healing SIBO, and even though I remind these sufferers again and again that every person’s body is different, I understand how refreshing and important getting all the nitty gritty details can be. Which is why not just today’s episode, but the next TWO, are going to be dedicated to SIBO and IBS success stories.
    My guests today are two fantastic women in wellness: Davida Lederle, the extremely prolific content creator behind TheHealthyMaven.com, and equally prolific gut researcher Sarah Kay Hoffman of AGutsyGirl.com.
    Both women ironically join me from Minnesota. Both have made it to the other side of SIBO. And though the road was far from easy, I think these two stories in particular are incredibly hopefully. So if you’ve gotten lost in the doom and gloom of online message boards and need a dose of real life perspective, I hope you give this episode a listen!

    This episode is also brought to you by Higher Dose, whose sauna blanket is my new self-care obsession. The blanket has all the benefits of a normal infrared sauna—the detoxification, the increase in blood flow and circulation, and the lowering of cortisol levels—but in a much more compact package that you use every day at home. I’ve been using it 2x a week and have noticed a huge improvement in my mood, sleep, skin, and general inflammation. My face and body feel less bloated and puffy, and my pants are even fitting better.

Thank you so much for this podcast. I've been having gut issues for years and I've learned so much helpful information through this. I really appreciate it!

In addition, I just find everything discussed in the podcast SO INTERESTING!!!! I'm obsessed.

I'd love for you to do an episode about concussions/brain injuries and sibo, and another celiac/gluten intolerance & sibo episode. <3
