Kicking the BS thoughts out of our mind and food off our plate that makes us sick, one episode at a time.
This is a podcast for overachievers who want to heal their autoimmune issues holistically and naturally, but coming up short.
Autoimmune issues are rarely caused by a single source, often it’s a combination of factors. The BS We Feed Ourselves explores the gut-brain connection, how stress, trauma, and our broken food system are all intertwined and contributing to a global escalation of autoimmune issues.
Host Shawna Bigby Davis shares expert interviews, mini-action plans, and no-BS mind expanders to start feeding ourselves better.
A former creative agency owner, Shawna sold her business in 2018 to heal her three autoimmune issues (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto’s, Celiac, and Epstein Barr) and on a mission to help 50 million Americans do the same.
Shawna is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and health-tech founder of Noemi.app, an AI-based coach for daily autoimmune wellness.
The BS We Feed Ourselves: “Was There Ever A Normal?”
Here’s what I’ve learned over these last 32 episodes. There isn’t any one smoking gun as to why we’re sick. Why we’re in the middle of a disease epidemic in this country. It’s multi-layered and fraught with nuance. The culmination of parts and allowances we feed ourselves daily, hourly, just to cope in a world that is too fast, diverse, polluted, and expansive for our brains to keep up with. This is why we’re here.

This definitely took me on an unexpected ride. The topic peeked my interest but as the show moved forward it continued to delve deeper and cause me to delve deeper into myself and ask some questions that I did not even think to ask. The way the host interviews is really effortless and allows for the guest to flow and does not hold them steadfast. I truly enjoyed the show and can’t wait for the next!
MS with Dr. Gretchen
As a personal trainer with clients that have MS I truly found this particular podcast energizing and informative. I now have more information to share with my clients to help when with their journey.
The podcast I’ve been waiting for!
Self-diagnosing digestive issues years ago, I have been looking for a source of varied information on a range of health topics that delivers answers on how to fix them. I don’t just want to learn about digestion — muscular, vascular, and respiratory issues follow similar patterns so let’s focus on whole body, whole mind.
The host does an amazing job of approaching what can sometimes be “woo woo” topics from a pragmatic perspective to deliver real content for everyone (not just those who only focus on western medicine or those who want to heal themselves through their chakras).
Plus, you get awesome entrepreneurial and business insights along the way. Stellar show — five stars!
