Mast cell activation (MCAS), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) are three often debilitating conditions on their own, but it seems they're likely connected to one another.

Join me and Dr. Weinstock as he explains the symptoms of these conditions, how they're linked, and what the future looks like for treatment. Even if you're only dealing with MCAS or POTS, this episode is worth a listen.

A low FODMAP diet is an extremely effective gut-healing tool. In fact, it's been studied for use in healing a wide range of conditions like IBS, IBD, fibromyalgia, anxiety, leaky gut, and more. 

But what exactly is it, what makes it so powerful, and how can you tap into its powers for yourself?   

Today we'll take a brief look at the data to illustrate the reparative ability of the low FODMAP diet, and then I'll give you guidelines for how you can do a low FODMAP diet on your own. 

Join me.
