Everyone has dry skin every once in a while, but if it’s constantly dry, itchy, red, and sore, eczema may be the culprit. Dr. Stephanie Davis is no stranger to eczema — she battled it herself and now empowers children to do the same. Listen in as she discusses how the everyday air we breathe and the food we consume impacts eczema and what natural solutions provide relief.

Patients of Dr. Jenny Tufenkian–Naturopathic Physician and Functional Medicine Educator–often seek her expertise to solve and overcome complex chronic illnesses. By listening to their symptoms and interpreting lab markers, Dr. Tufenkian can determine if a current or reactivated virus like Epstein-Barr or herpes simplex is what’s causing chronic pain, fatigue, and frequent infections. Listen in to learn how to connect the dots between symptoms and viruses, and how to use natural remedies for relief.

For optimal healing, a patient needs their symptoms, not their lab test results, to be treated. In this episode, I offer dietary and lifestyle solutions for people looking to improve their gut microbiome and overcome digestive and non-digestive symptoms caused by small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and gut dysbiosis. 

Listen in to hear the answers to these specific questions: 

  • What test do you recommend for gut dysbiosis, even if you've already been tested for SIBO and it was negative?
  • I have SIBO-related symptoms. Can I do treatments without getting tested for SIBO? 
  • What are your thoughts on using the Food Marble for monitoring the efficacy of SIBO treatment and food intolerances? 
  • I have had chronic SIBO for 10 years which was not diagnosed until approximately 4 years ago. I feel like I have to stay on antimicrobials indefinitely. I react to most foods when I add them in, therefore my diet is extremely limited. Why am I so reactive to food? 
  • I understand that Dr. Ruscio likes to try the triple probiotic therapy first with SIBO before trying antibiotics or antimicrobials. However, from what I learned you want to avoid lactobacillus species since they are hydrogen-producing and like to live in the small intestine. For that reason, should I just try S. boulardii, bifidobacterium, and soil based? 
  • How long should I take herbal antimicrobials when treating SIBO?
  • I have tested positive for SIBO, methane predominant, and I tried Rifaximin and neomycin. These improved my SIBO breath test but had major gas and belching, brain fog, and fatigue after treatment. I then tried antimicrobial herbs, and SIBO test results were much worse. However, since I’ve stopped herbals, my brain fog and fatigue are much better, but I’m having indigestion/belching with really smelly stools. What is going on? 
  • I’m currently experiencing symptoms of dysbiosis and leaky gut, and I’m not entirely sure if herbal antimicrobials would help my dysbiosis or make it worse. Do antimicrobial herbs kill good bacteria as well? My goal is to rebalance my microbiome in favor of the beneficial bacteria.

Developed by Harvard psychiatrist and researcher, Dr. Chris Palmer, the brain energy theory of mental illness highlights the connection between mental health and metabolism. Its basis is that mental disorders are actually metabolic disorders of the brain. This new understanding opens the door to new, safer treatments for depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. Hear how Dr. Palmer has put his theory into action for his psychiatric patients and what dietary and lifestyle changes you can make to improve your mood, energy, and quality of life.

We all want to maintain the sharpest brain possible, especially as we age. And now, new research is showing that probiotics may be able to play a role in doing so. A new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's disease looked at the relationship between probiotics, cognitive function, and brain atrophy. While I dive deep into the study’s outcomes, I also speak on why multi-strain probiotics are preferred and how else probiotics benefit gut, brain, immune, and liver health. Listen in to learn more about the power of probiotics.

When Reid–a father to two children and sports enthusiast–continued to get injuries and feel fatigued, he decided to make dietary and lifestyle changes to improve his own health and inspire his kids to adopt similar habits. By transitioning to eating a whole-foods anti-inflammatory diet alone, his energy, chronic pain, and mood improved. His 1 and 3-year-old eventually caught onto the craze of these healthier foods, which caused noticeable positive changes in their temper, sleep, and energy. In the episode, he speaks about what foods he and his kids now eat and how (to his own surprise) ice baths played a major role in his healing.
