PODCAST: Curing SIBO with Adrenal Fatigue and Whether to Eliminate Nightshades

PODCAST: Curing SIBO with Adrenal Fatigue and Whether to Eliminate Nightshades

Click through to hear Laura and I answer the following questions:

  1. I have SIBO, adrenal fatigue and a bunch of other issues. I’m eating low FODMAP. Apparently with SIBO it’s important to avoid starchy vegetables and fruit. But with adrenal fatigue, I end up in trouble if I don’t have enough carbs each day. Adding to the confusion, I’ve seen articles that encourage people to increase their intake of starchy vegetables if suffering from constipation (which is my main symptom of SIBO). I really have no idea what I’m supposed to be doing. Should I EAT or AVOID starchy vegetables and fruit? And if I’m avoiding, then what on earth do I eat for carbohydrates?
  2. How will I know whether or not I need to eliminate nightshades? (28:09)

Here’s what Laura and Kelsey will be discussing in this episode:

  1. My question is on prebiotics and soluble fiber. I often hear Acacia fiber recommended for gut health as it can feed good bacteria. But doesnt this also feed bad bacteria too? I have noticed prebiotics being sold in the store but I just dont get how it can help if its also promoting bad bacteria growth. I thought any kind of soluble fibre/prebiotic will help both the good and bad. And if we have Bad bacteria overgrowth, don’t we want to reduce it by starving them off?
  2. I have problems with grains, and have been doing well on the GAPS diet. However, I’m also pregnant, and most recommendations for pregnant women include several servings of grains.
