Are your probiotic side effects a positive sign, or should you make a modification? 

It’s all too common that when people take a probiotic and experience some kind of side effect, they take it to mean that probiotics aren’t right for them. And that’s understandable.

But more often than not, these side effects can be signaling something good (that they’re going to work in your gut) or simply that a small adjustment needs to be made. 

Here’s how to know which side effects mean what.

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.

Instead of spending time and money on (potentially inaccurate) stool tests, I’ll tell you 4 things you can do that will make a difference for your gut health.
