I'll never forget the time I asked a (heavily) pregnant patient if she was experiencing bloating. It took a couple of awkward seconds for me to realise what exactly I'd just asked. Major face plant moment!
Laughs on my behalf aside, something we must consider when aiming for balanced hormones and prepping our body preconception is gut health. Truly, it cant be ignored.
If you’re experiencing symptoms, perhaps bloating, gas, pains, food or histamine intolerance or any condition relating to inflammation in your body, this episode is for you. I invited a fellow Naturopath onto the podcast, for a fascinating digestive health chat.
Kirsten Greene has been a practicing Naturopath, Nutritionist and Western Medical Herbalist since 2008, and specialises in working with clients who have SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and associated digestive issues.
Kirsten has worked in Australia, South Africa and Europe and consults with clients worldwide online. Originally from South Africa, trained and qualified in Australia, Kirsten is a practising member of Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia and now calls Bali, Indonesia home.
Her primary focus is helping women heal their digestive issues so they can enjoy a loving relationship with their body and food. And for some, so that they may feel “normal”, sometimes for the first time in their lives.
Having been through SIBO and suffering digestion issues herself for years, Kirsten is super passionate in this area and can relate to what her clients are going through.
SIBO free to this day, Kirsten has gone from living with an extreme fear of food due to bloating, weight gain and discomfort, to having a healthy, functioning digestive system and sound relationship with all food.
This is what Kirsten wants for all others suffering with digestive issues too, food freedom.
In this episode we explore…
>> What SIBO is & how the symptoms compare with other digestive issues such as Candida overgrowth.
>> Causes and contributing factors of SIBO.
>> What complications can occur if SIBO is left untreated.
>> How SIBO is connected to endometriosis.
>> The importance of testing & determining the different types of SIBO.
>> What the treatment of SIBO involves - both diet and natural medicine, including some of Kirstens fav herbs she uses in this.
