008: Why Are You Having These Symptoms & How To Overcome Them w/ Dr. Megan Taylor
23:58Finally getting to the route of your SIBO symptoms is usually more than just heading to the doctor for a blood test. There are so many other factors and indicators at play! From DNA tests and gene markers to vitamin deficiencies and dehydration, a little exploration into your health can go a long way. Continuing my conversation with Dr. Megan Taylor, in this episode, we’re talking about how to help manage your SIBO symptoms. Treating SIBO can involve a number of different approaches, starting with, but not limited to, completing one of those ultra-popular DNA tests. These DNA tests not only give you ancestry information, but they’re also full of gene indicators and variants that will help you figure out your current health problems, and insight into whether you’ll be more susceptible to certain conditions in the future. SIBO patients can have a hard time breaking down, digesting, and utilizing the food and drinks we consume. We talk about what the impact of being unable to break down stress neurotransmitters has on our body - as it’s often more subtle than you might think. Vitamins and minerals should be supplemented, for quite a lot of the population, but in particular for SIBO patients. We should be looking at including extra B vitamins and iron into our daily routine. Often, and because of the way SIBO presents itself, there might be a worry of having too many B vitamins in our system - but current research shows that the body is able to expel what extra it has with no impact on the system. SIBO patients might find that they’re chronically thirsty and, even though they drink plenty of water every day, their thirst is real and constant. This is due to a disconnect within the adrenal glands, and Megan recommends using colorful sea salt in water a few times a day to help out sodium levels. Finally, Megan shares how coffee impacts the adrenal glands of SIBO patients and whether or not we should be drinking coffee every day. Current research indicates that, in moderation, coffee is actually good for us… but does that apply when you have SIBO? Do you drink coffee every day? How do you supplement your vitamins and minerals? Have you ever taken a DNA test like 23andme? In This Episode: What gene variants will make you more or less susceptible to certain conditions Why SIBO patients have a hard time breaking down stress neurotransmitters and what impact this has What high B vitamin levels can indicate for SIBO patients What vitamins and supplements you should take when you have SIBO How much water SIBO patients should drink every day Why everyone should be including extra trace minerals in their water What the connection between coffee and your adrenal glands is Quotes: “With a b12 deficiency, you end up not having as much cell division happening, so you end up with bigger cells because cells haven’t been able to go through the division process.” (9:49) “Many SIBO patients have adrenal and salt balance issues in our bodies. Our adrenal glands are helpful for regulating salt in our blood. And that can contribute to hydration and not being able to hold onto our water.” (16:03) “All the research out there is telling us that coffee in moderation, just like alcohol in moderation, can actually be really helpful. There’s a lot of antioxidants, among other things, in coffee.” (19:13) Links Find Dr. Megan Taylor Online | Facebook Join...
007: How To Conquer Your Constipation w/ Dr. Megan Taylor
21:42You can have regular, daily bowel movements and still be constipated. Indeed, regular movements are something we should all strive for, but when you’re still experiencing pain and discomfort in your abdomen, you might still have stool in the colon. Today, I’m continuing my conversation with the wonderful Dr. Megan Taylor, about how to treat constipation, particularly in children. Megan explains how there are different types of abdominal massage, some you can even do yourself, that help to loosen the stools in your intestines. When used regularly, these methods can help treat, and eventually prevent, constipation. At the very least, you’ll feel like your bowel movements have been improved. We also talk about how important it is to find your perfect healthcare “dream team.” Of course, you should have a primary physician, but you can also include professionals like massage therapists, acupuncturists, nutritionists, mental health therapists, and others. And it’s so important to practice self-care, as well - including techniques like meditation and yoga can have a very positive impact on your gut health. Finally, Megan explains why she likes to use testing as a diagnostic tool. She says that knowing what you’re treating is more beneficial than a trial and error approach. Have you built a healthcare team for yourself to cover all aspects of your health? Do you have regular self-care practices you participate in? Have you ever tried abdominal massage? In This Episode: How visceral manipulation and other methods of abdominal massage can help relieve constipation How self-massage can assist in improving your bowel movements Why you might need to see more than one professional to get the right healthcare for you Who your medical “dream team” should consist of What benefit acupuncture can have to your overall health and why you should consider it, even if you’re afraid of needles How our gut health is connected to our mental health What the connection between probiotics and prokinetics is Why children with SIBO are easier to treat than adults and what the treatment approach is Quotes: “Most folks don’t have just one thing going on, sadly. It would make our lives so much easier [if we did]. We are at least going to have 2, 3, 4 things going on that are contributing to our symptoms, so we need to know what all those are.” (5:13) “One important point I should probably mention: You could have a bowel movement every day and still have lots of stool in your colon.” (12:13) “I like testing. I don’t like treating in the dark. I found that we end up trying a whole lot of things and we don’t get at what’s gonna work right away, as quickly. I can’t say that testing guarantees that, but it gets us closer.” (17:25) Links Join the SIBO SOS 2019 Speaker Series Find Dr. Megan Taylor Online | Facebook Learn more about SIBO SOS Online | Facebook Check out the full episode post here <a href="https://sibosos.com/" target="_blank" rel=...
006: Learning To Manage A Chronic SIBO Diagnosis w/ Dr. Megan Taylor
25:02For some people, a SIBO diagnosis is a one and done treatment plan. For others, SIBO can be recurring and chronic, leading to lifelong symptoms and the need to make long-term changes to your life. Today’s guest, Dr. Megan Taylor, has had symptoms of SIBO since she was a child, but after finally getting a diagnosis in her 20s, started taking back control of her life. Megan works with children and adults to help them get to the bottom of their gastrointestinal issues, including SIBO and IBS. She believes that there is a lot of relief in finally getting a diagnosis of SIBO, because once you have one, you can start to treat and live with the condition. However, because of its nature, a SIBO diagnosis is far from easy, especially when it’s a recurrent condition. A chronic diagnosis can come after a variety of tests and physical exams are performed. Megan’s was personally diagnosed after she had a “small bowel follow through” that declared she had a blockage in her small intestine. While she was disheartened to learn this was something she would have for her entire life, she knew she could manage it. What made the difference for Megan was accepting her condition. When she learned to accept the body she has, instead of constantly striving to change it, she finally began to heal. By using both short-term and long-term changes, she has managed to successfully manage her SIBO for many years. We talk about what some of these changes are, highlighting the importance of dietary changes to help control SIBO symptoms. Megan shares information about antimicrobials and prokinetics, as well, explains why these are both good to include in your routine, and, maybe most vitally, how to introduce them safely. Do you have chronic SIBO? Have you introduced any prokinetics, herbal or otherwise, into your diet to help control your SIBO symptoms? What dietary changes have you made to help manage your SIBO? In This Episode: What the journey from SIBO diagnosis to treatment is Why SIBO can become a recurrent condition What a small bowel follow through is and what it can tell you How to live with and treat a chronic condition, such as recurrent SIBO What changes you need to make in your life, both long and short term, to make a chronic condition more manageable Why you need to come to terms with the fact that you have SIBO How dietary modifications can have a positive impact on symptoms of SIBO What medication is available and why it’s important to find one that works with your body What herbal prokinetic options are available and how much you should take How you can make prokinetics more manageable for your body Quotes: “I think the most important thing when you first get diagnosed with SIBO is to understand that SIBO is not really a diagnosis, right? SIBO happens as a result of some other underlying condition.” (2:48) “You can live the life you want to live - with a chronic case of SIBO.” (6:30) “If you struggle with constipation, and that’s kinda the big symptom that you’re working with with your SIBO… People with constipation really, really struggle with prokinetics. And there’s a lot of good, sciency stuff we could get into to explain why, but that build up of pressure as a result of constipation often will contribute to the tendency to develop reflux.” (18:56) This episode is sponsored by Just Thrive Probiotic & Antioxidant ...
