S02 E06 – Understanding SIBO: Gut Health and Acne

Have you ever wondered about your digestive system’s resilience and link to skin health? Can the journey to wellness lead to both clear skin and a deeper understanding of gut health?

Today, we’re diving into the complexities of gut health, especially focusing on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). We’ll discuss how SIBO affects digestion and emphasize the crucial role of a healthy gut in overall well-being. This episode is packed with insights for anyone interested in gut health.

We take a comprehensive look at managing SIBO, highlighting the importance of customized diets, specific supplements, and lifestyle choices in promoting gut health. Additionally, we delve into how hair trace mineral analysis (HTMA) can uncover underlying gut issues and their connection to skin conditions like acne. We’ll cover a broad spectrum of SIBO symptoms, testing methods, and the potential effects of various medications and lifestyle factors on gut health. Join us for an enlightening discussion on the intricate relationship between the gut and skin.

In this week’s episode, we discuss…

  • The crucial link between gut health and skin issues.
  • Hidden connections between SIBO and acne.
  • How gut imbalances impact your skin’s health.
  • The symptoms and learn how to detect SIBO.
  • A comprehensive approach to addressing SIBO effectively.

When you’re dealing with issues like SIBO, I generally like to do a protocol over a 90 to 120 day period. It’s not just two weeks of removing foods, taking a probiotic, and then all of your issues are gone.

Paragraph

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job and we're here to help you do it.

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
