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

Thanks for joining us for our fifth episode of The Ancestral RDs podcast! If you want to keep up with our podcasts, subscribe in iTunes and never miss an episode!

We talked about treating SIBO last week, and this week Kelsey addresses some common issues that come up when trying to treat SIBO and another condition like Adrenal Fatigue at the same time. Laura will be discussing nightshades and how to determine if they’re worth eliminating in your diet.

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

  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.

PODCAST: Choosing a Prebiotic and Grains Recommended During Pregnancy

PODCAST: Choosing a Prebiotic and Grains Recommended During Pregnancy

Thanks for joining us for our third episode of The Ancestral RD podcast!  We’ve got a lot of great questions to choose from so thanks for submitting them! If you want to keep up with our podcasts, subscribe in iTunes and never miss an episode!

Remember, if you’d like to submit a question for our new podcast, or suggest a guest that we should host, CLICK HERE.

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.

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

1. I’ve eaten sweet potatoes twice now and both times I’ve reacted poorly. My gut feels irritated and I go to the bathroom shortly afterwards. Any idea why this might be happening? I can tolerate regular potatoes with no problem.
