We’re continuing with our listener-submitted questions today, and this episode is all about the ins and outs of becoming a Real Food RD. Please send us your question if you’d like us to answer it on the show!

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

  1. I’m curious to know how you both gained confidence in your counseling skills when you first began practicing. In my internship, I don’t feel as if I’m developing the counseling skills I need for private practice. In the hospital, as I’m sure you both know, we get about 10-20 minutes with a patient, which includes assessment questions and then leaves some time for education. I will have some opportunity for outpatient counseling in my community rotation so hopefully that will help me build upon those skills. I guess I am most curious about how a typical session goes with a new client? Are most of your clients already somewhat familiar with real food/paleo eating? If not,

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

  1. After having horrible digestive issues for an incredibly long time, last year I was diagnosed with celiac disease, SIBO, and fructose malabsorption. I’m relieved to say that after many diet adjustments, I now have my digestive issues under control about 80-90% of the time. However, now I’m noticing issues with brain fog. On random days I will find it impossible to put my thoughts into words, I won’t be able to focus at work because thinking feels too difficult, and I’ll feel anxious and freak out over things that normally wouldn’t bother me.This doesn’t happen every day, just maybe once a week or so. I am curious if you know of any specific foods (other than caffeine, which I don’t consume much) that are most likely to cause these symptoms? I know about lifestyle changes to implement,

Sorry for the delay in our podcasting schedule, Kelsey was in Iceland for two weeks last month so instead of finding someone else to cover for her, we just took the month off from podcasting. But we’re back for good, hopefully!

Today we’re getting back to some good old Q&As, and we’re going to be diving deep into some gut health topics.

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

  1. What are the best natural ways to stay regular? Salads and broccoli, etc aren’t doing the trick!! Background: Did an herbal treatment for rosacea due to SIBO and rosacea is gone but am left with extreme constipation. Chia seeds? 5htp? Acacia fiber makes my head feel funny. Thanks!
  2. I am wondering if there is a connection between gut health and acne? I am 27 and for a long time I’ve had both a sensitive gut and constant acne especially around my chin and jaw. I’ve heard this could be hormonal?

This episode is part two of our 2-hour special on the causes of adrenal fatigue. We hope that our first episode was helpful for you, and not too overwhelming. Sometimes having all this knowledge can cause people to be more stressed than if they didn’t know all the ways that life stress can cause adrenal fatigue so we’re hoping you’ll use this information as a way to make appropriate changes to your lifestyle and not get overwhelmed by fear or thinking that you need to move to a deserted island to get away from all of these potential issues..
