    Lessons learned from having chronic SIBO with Rebecca Coomes | Ep. 81

    Lessons learned from having chronic SIBO with Rebecca Coomes | Ep. 81

    Rebecca Coomes was diagnosed with SIBO in early 2015. On today's podcast she reflects on the insights she has gained from having a chronic condition and the lessons she has learned about herself, her health, her body and SIBO. On the episode she discusses:


    - Why SIBO can be a wake up call we need to listen to
    - 100% resolution might not be possible but 75% or 80% improvement can be and that is ok
    - If we have been sick a long time, we can’t expect complete resolution within days
    - Why we should focus on how we are feeling rather than what test results say
    - Testing is helpful for diagnosis and understanding what it going on but we need to treat the whole body and the person, not just the test results
    - Why tracking how we're feeling is so helpful in recognising how we're changing
    - Diet is helpful in controlling symptoms but isn't the only element in treating SIBO
    - Why working with a skilled dietician or nutritionist is such a good investment in developing a nutritional protocol that's right for us
    - The importance of recognising disordered eating early and investing in a skilled psychologist who can help us navigate through the challenges of SIBO
    - Why there are 4 stages to treating SIBO, yet so many people only do the first 2
    - The importance of building a dream team of Practitioners around you
    - Not letting your location stop you from getting great care
    - Understanding that we know our bodies the best. Trust your symptoms and instincts
    - Changing your internal dialogue and limiting self beliefs
    - Writing down your goals and working towards them
    - Prioritising your spending so you spend money on health and fulfilment rather than distractions
    - Looking to see what positives and lessons you can take from this experience
