    About My Guest
    Brittyn Coleman, MS, RDN/LD is a dietitian specializing in autism spectrum disorders and is also a sibling of an individual on the autism spectrum. Through her life and her studies, she realized how much overlap there is between nutrition and autism.

    During graduate school at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, she specialized in autism spectrum disorders and led her thesis research in food aversions and nutrient intake in children with ASD. There are very few dietitians specializing in ASD across the country, which makes accessibility extremely low.

    Because of this, she offers video and phone consults to parents and individuals all over the nation to increase the reach of nutrition therapy and nutrition education for families and individuals affected by ASD.

    She is knowledgeable about autism in relations to diet, biomedical interventions, food selectivity, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal disorders, and even nutrigenetics.

    Microbes at the Table: The Role of the Gut Microbiome in Eating Disorders

    Microbes at the Table: The Role of the Gut Microbiome in Eating Disorders

    Eating Disorders are complex psycho-behavioral metabolic illnesses that arise from socio-cultural, environmental, biochemical & nutritional interactions with serious consequences for physical and mental health.

    Novel approaches to treatment are emerging from biomedical and behavioral sciences, including the fields of neuroscience, nutritional biochemistry & gastrointestinal microbiology. Katherine talks with us about how the GI microbiome and the gut-brain axis (GBA) can act as both an antecedent and mediator in the pathogenesis and treatment of Anorexia Nervosa and other eating disorders.

    Katherine L Stephens-Bogard is owner and founder of FUNctionally nouRisheD--aka FUNRD by KSB llc. Functionally Nourished integrates the science of western medicine with the contemplative practices of eastern philosophy to promote health of body, mind, and spirit for those struggling with disordered eating/eating disorders.

    Clients of FUNRD receive an individualized nutrition prescription of nutrient dense foods intended to restore the physical body to whole health in tandem with mindfulness practices--yoga, pranayama (breathe work) & dharana (focused concentration) developed in collaboration with the client's other treatment team members as appropriate.

    Katherine's webpage is under construction; but in the interim she can be reached via email @ katherinestephensbogard@gmail.com.
