In this special episode, part of our "Mental Health Is Physical Health" series, I sit down with members of my team to discuss the elusive gut-brain connection. In functional medicine, we often see that people with FODMAP intolerances and SIBO have both gut and brain symptoms. But what came first, the mood issue or gut issue? In this episode we peel back all the layers to see the mechanisms by which one affects the other and steps you can take to reclaim your mental and physical health. Plus, a vulnerable conversation with one of our patients gives you an inside, personal look on what it really looks like to find vibrant wellness.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • What is FODMAP intolerance and symptoms you might experience
  • High FODMAP foods
  • How to find out if you have SIBO
  • The gut-brain connection and how to determine if your mood issues are actually gut issues
