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 ha…
 
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 in…
 
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 S…
 
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…
 
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 ge…
 
Lyme is known in medical circles as the great imitator, meaning it can affect many different areas of the body and present as countless other conditions. Some challenges in testing have also made it both underdiagnosed and a controversial diagnosis. And yet the bacteria in various tick borne illness can be an underlying cause for many people who st…
 
Endometriosis affects 10 percent of women, and yet, it often takes a woman 10 doctors visits in order to get diagnosed. An inflammatory condition by nature, as endo develops it can put a huge strain on the digestive system, leading to IBS symptoms and often SIBO. Joining me to discuss how to heal the gut while tackling endo through more invasive me…
 
The vast majority of women (and many men) have gone through periods of disordered eating, whether that means crash dieting, emotional binging, calorie counting, over-exercising or a full-blown eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia. And yet, so rarely do physicians take into consideration their patients complicated relationship with food before p…
 
Have you ever connected the dots between an accident and your IBS? I would have never thought a minor brain or spinal injury would have a lasting impact on your gut health, but after today’s conversation, I see how any disruption to the brain stem can interrupt the messages that funnel down to our digestive system. My guest, Kayla Sandberg-Lewis, o…
 
People in general--and certainly people who listen to this podcast--have come to understand that we are completely colonized by bacteria. We have a grasp on where it lives, how it helps us. But viruses are much more abstract. Covid-19 has laid bare how little we still know about our interactions with viruses, what role our gut plays in the process,…
 
The latest pandemic and the question of whether or not to send kids back to school for in-person instruction, has cast a sharp light on the subject of a child’s immune system. In today’s episode, we will take a deep dive into how our guts evolve in early childhood, why children are often better at fighting illness than their adult counterparts, and…
 
We talk a lot about intestines on this podcast, duh. But today’s episode is all about the stomach. We’ve been taught over the years through plenty of TV ads for pep-themed pills that stomach acid is something that needs to be constantly beaten back in order to avoid reflux. In today’s conversation, we investigate the other side of the coin: why a d…
 
This conversation is going to give you so much to chew on. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself). We are talking about oral health today, and before you come at me asking what in the world this has to do with SIBO, I shall risk the spoiler by saying: a LOT. Not only is our mouth the first stop in the digestive process, whose contents eventually make thei…
 
There is so much that modern medicine has taught us about why gut imbalances like SIBO can take hold (just see episode 36 for some of the recent research). But we often overlook some of the ancient wisdom that has been making sense of these conditions for centuries. Since many of you have been requesting more episodes on general dysbiosis and gut h…
 
We are back for the 4th and final season of the SIBO Made Simple podcast—and man, what a different world we’re returning to. I could have never predicted when I recorded my last episode on February 20th that all anyone would be thinking about in the health space was viruses. But here we are. To satisfy all your burning questions about Covid-19 and …
 
It’s the season 3 finale Q&A episode! And I have a dream guest here with me to answer all your lingering SIBO queries: the king of SIBO himself, Dr. Mark Pimentel. If you’ve already been down the SIBO rabbit hole, Dr. Pimentel likely needs no introduction. He’s the director of The Pimentel Lab at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, where he researches man…
 
Woody plants with lots of fiber can be a tough hurdle for someone with a damaged gut. And yet, it’s that very same fiber that research indicates is the key to healing some of our biggest overarching gut problems. It can feel like a fine line to walk. Today Dr. Will Bulsiewicz is on the show to help us navigate that tightrope. In our conversation, D…
 
When it comes to nutritional science, there are so many complicated variables to sort through in determining whether or not an ingredient is good for your health. One that doesn’t get talked about enough? How it’s cooked. In today’s episode, we’re heading into the kitchen with one of the most renowned chefs in the world, David Bouley. Over the last…
 
Over the years, emerging research has illustrated how bacteria and fungi function in harmony in the body. When one population becomes deficient or overgrows, it has a profound effect on the delicate ecosystem of your gut. This is a concept we discuss in depth in episode 25, which is all about Candida and SIFO. In today’s conversation, we are going …
 
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome only got an official diagnosis code a few years ago, and yet, it is a condition that explains so much about what goes wrong with the immune system and how that dysfunction can lead to chronic inflammation. If you loved last season’s episode on histamine intolerance (and I know many you did – it was one of the most popu…
 
‘Tis the season for “cleansing,” everyone! You know, when the marketing machine revs up and starts selling you all manner of green elixirs and herbal supplements. In reality, the idea of detox is really all about supporting your elimination pathways, especially your liver. It doesn’t require you to supplement with pills, juice cleanses or anything …
 
Celiac disease is a big risk factor for SIBO, and yet, it’s often an overlapping condition that many doctors miss. In today’s conversation, I’m joined by Dr. Lisa Shaver to discuss the relationship between leaky gut, gluten, and the body’s autoimmune response in someone with celiac disease—and how these mechanisms can lead to other gut disorders li…
 
Intestinal worms, like some types of bacteria, have gotten a bad rap in our hyper-sanitized modern life. But over the last fifty years, scientists have begun to question whether or not the vast eradication of these ancient friends has caused more long-term harm than good. In today’s episode, we talk about the hygiene hypothesis and how some people …
 
Environmental toxins are the giant purple elephant in the room. They are often the last thing to be addressed on someone’s journey to healing a chronic condition, and yet, the inconvenient truth is that everyday exposures--in our homes, our drinking water, our personal care products, even out mattresses--are doing more harm than we often give them …
 
We often talk about how SIBO is an issue of location, not type. Meaning, our main worry isn’t whether our bacteria is “good or bad,” per se. Just that it’s in the wrong place, too far up our digestive tract. But in the last five years we’ve come to better understand how pathogenic bacteria is often the first player in a chain of events that eventua…
 
Candida and fungi—just like bacteria—are a normal part of our gut’s ecosystem. And yet, for many of the same reasons a person might develop SIBO, if your digestive tract isn’t functioning properly, those organisms can overgrow and cause a host of problems. In today’s episode, we get into the issue of how to parse out whether you’re GI symptoms are …
 
We are BACK with season 3 of SIBO Made Simple! I’m tackling some of your most-requested topics right at the beginning of the season, including today’s conversation, which is all about the skin-gut connection. Rashes, breakouts, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea—you name it, and I’ve been asked if it’s a symptom of SIBO. Luckily, I was able to bring on the…
 
We’ve covered a lot of ground in season 2 of SIBO Made Simple, and along the way we’ve received some amazing listener questions, many of which are related to the food piece of the puzzle. In today’s episode, we’re asking a nutritionist all of our diet-related digestion questions. To answer them, I have Kristy Regan, a Holistic Nutritionist who spec…
 
The elemental diet is the most impactful data-backed treatment for SIBO. And yet, it’s often misused, misunderstood and generally met with last resort trepidation. Today on the podcast, I’m joined by Dr. Michael Ruscio to demystify this approach and talk more about how he uses it for SIBO treatment, IBD, celiac, and other cases involving a highly-d…
 
Back by popular demand is another powerful SIBO survivor story. In today’s episode, Shivan Sarna is sharing her experience of uncovering her root causes, from Lyme disease to mold exposure, and how she became the patient expert she is today. Shivan is the founder of SIBO SOS, where she hosts monthly master classes to support others on their journey…
 
A lot of integrative medicine these days blends practices from Western science and ancient cultures. But rarely do we get to fully understand the principles of the Eastern approach and how we can apply them to our healing journey. In today’s episode, I have one of my personal practitioners, Dr. Heidi Lovie, discussing the tenets of Chinese Medicine…
 
CBD has become a big buzz word in the wellness world, as a salve for everything from anxiety to gut issues to period pain. But what is it and how does it actually work? In today’s episode, I’m joined by Chloe Weber, a trained herbalist, acupuncturist and founder of Radical Roots, which combines the power of Chinese herbs with full spectrum hemp. Ch…
 
Is it possible that the most potent medicine in your bathroom is what’s getting flushed down the toilet every day? Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) – taking stool from a healthy person and using it to recolonize the colon of someone with a dysbiotic microbiome – has been one of the most exciting areas of medical research in the last five year…
 
Research shows that so much of what sets us up for good gut health later in life happens during early childhood. And yet, it’s often when we take our biggest missteps. In today’s episode, we go beyond SIBO to talk about the rules of greater gut health, why our detachment from the earth is making sick, and how by simply getting dirtier we can correc…
 
SIBO breath testing has been the subject of some pushback in the wider medical community. Today’s episode discusses some of the controversy around the effectiveness of breath testing, when it’s worth doing, how to make sure your results are accurate, and what other tests might be better at getting to the bottom of your gut issues. Joining me is Dr.…
 
We’ve all experienced some telling signs that our gut is connected to our mood. Think butterflies in your stomach before a big presentation, that last minute urge to pee before going on stage. And if you’re someone with SIBO or other digestive issues, you might be dealing with some of the other downwind symptoms that occur when we let our anxiety g…
 
Have you found that fermented foods, bone broth and wine make you feel sick? Do you sometimes feel edgy, anxious or are unable to sleep? Does your nose stay stuffy year-round to boot? You might be dealing with a histamine intolerance. In today’s episode, integrative nutritionist Heidi Turner explains how histamine works to support various systems i…

Welcome BACK to season 2 of SIBO Made Simple! I’m so excited for all that’s to come, but perhaps the most pumped about today’s episode, which is all about digesting for TWO. Believe it or not, one of the most frequent questions I got during season 2 was about either a) fertility and SIBO or b) treating SIBO while pregnant. Luckily, I was able to br…

For the season 1 finale, I wanted to get the perspective of someone who has stood in these SIBO shoes many times and found a silver (intestinal) lining. In today’s episode, Rebecca Coomes is sharing her powerful patient story, from getting through cervical cancer, to managing endometriosis, to finding balance despite a chronic case of SIBO. Rebecca…
 
One of the most frequent SIBO Made Simple listener questions I’ve received revolves around the timing of treatment and diet. Is it better to feed the bacteria while on herbal or conventional antimicrobials by eating normally, or starve them with a low carb approach? In today’s episode, I’m joined by Dr. Nirala Jacobi, one of Australia’s leading SIB…
 
There are many autoimmune diseases that are considered risk factors for SIBO. And yet, many of the downstream effects of SIBO (like leaky gut) also put you at risk for developing an autoimmune disease. This week, I’m joined by Dr. Susan Blum for a primer on the immune system, how it functions within our gut’s ecosystem, and why things can go awry a…

We’ve talked about many root causes of SIBO in past episodes of this podcast, but today we are going to do a …
 
There’s a wealth of information about how prebiotics and probiotics can influence your gut microbiome for the better. And yet, even though SIBO is a type of gut imbalance, there’s less awareness around how these tools work to eradicate unwanted bacteria and encourage the resurgence of beneficial populations. In this week’s episode, we clear up some…
 
Intermittent fasting has become a quickly accelerating wellness trend. As with any fad, this has led to a lot of misinformation and unhealthy applications of the original concept in daily life. In this week’s episode, we get to the bottom of how fasting and meal spacing can help your digestive system recover and repair. And a lot of it comes down t…
 
Over the last 5 years, the low FODMAP approach has become the gut healing diet du jour, with everyone from naturopaths to conventional MD’s prescribing it for IBS relief. On today’s episode we get into the nitty gritty of what eliminating fermentable carbs from your life actually looks like, the healing potential for your SIBO, and how this diet ca…
 
There’s no one approach to SIBO, which is what often makes patients so confused. And today’s guest has also stood in those shoes. This week, Phoebe is joined by Dr. Allison Siebecker, who is nicknamed “the Queen of SIBO.” She is a naturopathic physician, award-winning author, clinician and teacher. And if you’ve already done a deep dive on SIBO, yo…
 
Many SIBO treatments do a great job of killing your unwanted bacteria, but they don't necessarily set you up for long-term good gut health. In today's episode, we are going to go a little bit deeper into some of the herbs and natural supplements that can be used as part of your SIBO toolkit. My guest, Dr. Will Cole, is a leading functional-medicine…
