    The Gut-Skin Connection with Sisley Killam, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Acne Coach

    The Gut-Skin Connection with Sisley Killam, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Acne Coach

    You've probably heard that your gut health impacts your skin health, but the real question is, how? And what are we suppose to eat for healthy skin, anyway?

    Acne coach and Holistic Nutritionist, Sisley Killam, is here to answer both of these questions and more in this episode of the Plant Powered Gut Show.

    Sisley has her own history with both dysbiosis and acne and ever since solving both through holistic diet and lifestyle changes, she's been on a mission help other women achieve the best skin of their lives.

    In this episode, we chat about:

    - What the gut-skin connection is
    - How the birth control pill impacts hormones, nutrient status, and skin health
    - Which hormones play a critical role in skin health
    - Critical foods and nutrients for optimal skin health
    - Why touching and picking at your face is a big no-no and how to stop doing both
    - The role that stress plays in impacting both hormones and skin health

    Overcoming Acid Reflux and Aches & Pains through a Plant Based Diet with Michelle Bresson

    Overcoming Acid Reflux and Aches & Pains through a Plant Based Diet with Michelle Bresson

    There are many known benefits that accompany the switch to a plant based diet, but what about the changes that come unexpectedly?

    For my former client, Michelle, this was the trajectory of her time working with me.

    There were the aspects of her health she knew she wanted to work on and indeed saw positive changes in: gut health, reflux, and weight loss.

    But there were also the many changes that came unexpectedly in the process: improved PMS symptoms, less joint pain, fewer aches and body stiffness.

    In this episode of the podcast, Michelle and I chat about her journey from meat focused meal prepping to whole food plant based living and all of the baby steps that she took to get to where she is now: thriving, happy, healthy and plant powered.

    If you're looking for inspiration for your own gut health journey, look no further!

    Thoughts on the Low FODMAP Diet

    Thoughts on the Low FODMAP Diet

    Have you been recommended the low FODMAP diet by a practitioner before?

    I have.

    In fact, I was told to Google it. Yes, Google it. By a Gastroenterologist, none the less.

    Did I follow it? Not really.

    Why? Because I was both overwhelming, and unconvinced that it was what I needed to solve my IBS.

    And thankfully,  my intuition was correct.

    In this episode of the podcast I chat about:

    - What the low FODMAP diet is
    - What are the flaw and benefits of it
    - What happens if you follow it long term
    - Whether or not it benefits the microbiome
    - What are the risks
    - What my preferred alternative strategy is

    An Evidence Based Look at the Gut-Thyroid Connection with Dr. Travis Cox

    An Evidence Based Look at the Gut-Thyroid Connection with Dr. Travis Cox

    When your doctor diagnosed you with a thyroid imbalance, did they explain the gut-thyroid connection to you?

    Most likely not.

    What most women aren't being told is that there is in fact a connection and if addressed properly, can transform the entire trajectory of your thyroid healing journey.

    In this episode of the PPG Show, I interview Dr. Travis Cox, who dives deep into the details of this connection in addition to:

    1. What the thyroid gland is
    2. What are the signs and symptoms of a thyroid imbalance
    3. How prevalent is Hashimoto's disease (hint: it's a lot more common than you'd think)
    4. What the microbiome mash-up is
    5. What to look for when testing for a thyroid imbalance
    6. The difference between Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism
    7. And much more!

    The Truth Behind Gut Health Testing and Gluten with Dr. Matthew Nagra

    The Truth Behind Gut Health Testing and Gluten with Dr. Matthew Nagra

    Ever been told by your practitioner that you need to have an IgG food sensitivity test done in order to properly "heal" the gut?

    Or what about a microbiome specific stool test?

    If you're on a gut healing journey, then chances are, you've been recommended both.

    But is there evidence to support the fact that either are accurate or useful?

    On today's episode of the podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Matthew Nagra, who takes an evidence based approach to his practice as a Naturopathic Doctor.

    In this episode, Dr. Nagra clears the air around various gut health topics including gluten, anti-nutrients, gut health testing, and bloating caused by beans and legumes and helps shed light on what the science really says about each.

    Questions answered:

    1. Are food sensitivity tests valid?
    2. Are microbiome stool tests valid?
    3. What is celiac disease?
    4. Who should avoid gluten?
    5. Is gluten inflammatory for the gut?
    6. What about zonulin?
    7. How can we reduce the bloating that comes from consuming beans and legumes?
    8. Are "anti-nutrients" safe to consume?

    A New Way to Address SIBO

    A New Way to Address SIBO

    What if the way we've been treating SIBO is all wrong?

    What if elimination diets are NOT the way to go to "starve off" the bacteria overgrowth in your small intestine?

    What if dysbiosis is the true culprit at hand?

    In this episode of the podcast, I discuss a NEW way to address SIBO that will change the way you think about repairing your gut forever.
