250: How to Heal from SIBO Without SIBO Taking Over Your Life w/ Phoebe Lapine
If You Want To Heal Your SIBO You Should: * Address the three main risk factor buckets and identify the root cause of your bacteria overgrowth * Find a bodyworker to help you navigate which protocol will work best for you * Embrace a beautifully diverse diet by focusing on an anti-inflammatory protocol SIBO, or Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, affects millions of people but can be difficult to nail down. Unlike other gut imbalances, SIBO happens when there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the upper part of your digestive tract. Because of the importance of the location of this bacteria, it takes the right support to heal your gut and reduce your inflammation. Healing SIBO Through Food with Phoebe Lapine Phoebe Lapine believes that food can and should be medicine. A writer, gluten-free chef, culinary instructor, Hashimoto’s advocate and so much more, Phoebe is here to share her story of autoimmune disease and healing SIBO from the inside out. What You Need To Know About SIBO Due to stress, lifestyle factors, and hormones, women suffer from SIBO far more often than men. It is important to understand the connections between all of these factors so that you can uncomplicate your symptoms and work on finding the healing protocol that is right for you. Everything from structural issues in your gut to your body's ability to kill bacteria can have an impact on your likelihood of developing SIBO. Gas, bloating, thyroid hormones, and so much more can play a role here, which is why it is essential to equip yourself with the necessary knowledge to address your gut dysbiosis in the best way possible. Finding the Right Treatment for Your Body Addressing bacteria overgrowth takes an individualized approach to be the most effective possible. Antibiotics, herbs, and different diets can all be helpful depending on your unique sensitivity, lifestyle, and detox methods. It is important to know what you are working with before you start to treat your symptoms. Phoebe suggests starting from a place of anti-inflammatory protocols. You don't have to stop enjoying food to cure your gut bacteria; all it takes is the knowledge to guide yourself through gut complications and get to a place of a beautifully diverse diet. Phoebe is a real example of the amazing possibilities of healing SIBO and clearing up what is going on in the body through food, lifestyle, and body kindness. Do you or someone you love suffer from SIBO? Share which of Phoebe’s tips you are going to incorporate into your daily routine with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “Sometimes you just need help getting onto a higher plateau of healing.” (18:56) “At the end of the day, this is all just connected tissue, and fascia and soft tissue muscles, and we have to make sure those are working, which is a whole different ballgame from the bacteria situation.” (24:58) - Dr. Mariza “SIBO to me explains why a low fodmap diet is effective in terms of symptoms, because if you have perfectly normal bacteria in the wrong place too far up your digestive tract, and you feed them the foods they enjoy most, then, of course, you are going to have some sort of gas as part of that, having it be too far up your intestinal tract as well.” (33:18) “It's never just SIBO, there is usually kind of a bigger issue at play, even if it is not necessarily causing the issue in of itself.” (33:33) “Diversity is the spice of life, and we don't want to be overloading our system with large quantities of one ingredient.” (38:31) In This Episode * Why women are more susceptible to SIBO than men (12:21) * The three different buckets that can impact your gut and hormone symbiosis (19:38) * Where to start when testing for SIBO and other digestive issues (25:42) * Which foods you should be focusing on to fix your SIBO and inflammation (31:34) * How to embrace the diversity of life with anti-inflammatory versions of comfort food (38:25) Resources Mentioned: Order the SIBO Made Simple Book Here SIBO Made Simple Website SIBO Made Simple Podcast Feed Me Phoebe Website The Wellness Project Website Follow Phoebe on Instagram Dr. Allison Siebecker Website Related Episodes: Essentially You Episode #230: Dismantling Myths About Leaky Gut, Gut Health and Probiotics with Tina Anderson Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative

Episode 440: COVID-19 Vaccines Part 1 - mRNA Vaccine Technology
The Whole View, Episode 440: COVID-19 Vaccines Part 1 - mRNA Vaccine Technology Welcome back to episode 440 of the Whole View. (0:27) Stacy explains that today's topic is one she and Sarah have received the most questions on possibly ever. Stacy also lets the audience know that this show will be a 2-parter, possibly a 3-parter depending on how deep in they get. This show has been long in the making because she and Sarah had to wait for the research publication. Then Sarah has done her own research on top of it to prepare for this show. Sarah shares that she's been following this topic for about a year now: ever since the novel coronavirus was sequenced. It's important they lay out the science for listeners, look at the technology and history of vaccines, answer the frequently asked questions, and bust the myths surrounding this topic. (2:08) She and Stacy decided to divide the show into multiple parts to take their time and do the subject justice. Stacy takes a minute to address how polarizing the word "vaccine" can be. And she and Sarah are aware of this. She wants to assure listeners they understand vaccines are a personal decision for everyone, just like every other health and medical choices are. Stacy and Sarah are here to provide the information you need to be an informed consumer. Note On Vaccines In this episode, they will discuss the mRNA vaccine technology in the history of vaccines. (2:40) Next week's episode, Sarah and Stacy will go over the safety and efficacy data for the first two vaccines, Emergency Use Authorization, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and the Moderna vaccine. Sarah and Stacy will discuss their thoughts on vaccinations going forward. But Stacy reminds listeners that it's never aimed at telling others what to do. She also reminds listeners that she and Sarah are not medical professionals. If you have questions regarding the vaccine for yourself or your family, discuss them with your doctor. There is a lot of information that is both true and not true floating around on the web. Stacy is very excited to talk about the science and breakdown behind these vaccines and gives a little background on herself for context. Both Stacy and her mother have anaphylactic reactions to things like gluten due to multiple autoimmune disorders. Stacy has brought up to Sarah whether or not she thinks getting the vaccine is a good idea for someone with health issues like Stacy's mom. Stacy also wonders how having the coronavirus, but not having the antibodies, will affect her if given the vaccine. Listener Questions Sarah reiterates just how many questions they've received from listeners around this subject. (5:10) She takes a moment to share a few she thinks accurately sum up what they want to cover in this episode. Mae wrote: I am sure you don't want to cover this topic, but you are a source I highly trust as I am sure a lot of your other followers do. Would you consider doing a show about the Covid vaccines out there? It's so hard to know what to believe these days.....Not looking to be told what to do, but merely to be presented the information as you do so well in breaking down the real science that is not filtered through such a biased lens. Meghan added: Can you please do an episode explaining the science behind vaccines, and explaining how they really work, including the new Covid one. You always do an excellent job of explaining things well in a relatively easy to understand way without shortcutting good science. Stacy assures listeners that they will do their very best to break everything down. However, you might still have questions or have heard something different that might conflict with prior information. Stacy encourages you to reach out via the contact forms on the website for any follow-up. If you're part of the Patreon family, use direct access to talk with Sarah and Stacy there. She also encourages listeners not to attack the topic on social media or to put too much emphasis on things you hear without any sources cited. A Brief History of Vaccine Technology Sarah starts off by going way back into the history of vaccines. (8:27) The very first form of inoculation was called variolation. The first variolation for smallpox dates to the 1600s in China and Ottoman Empire and practiced first in Britain and colonial Massachusetts in 1721. They took the pus from someone suffering a natural smallpox infection. And then they'd would then rub it onto punctured or cut skin of someone who had never been exposed. If the procedure didn't kill you, you'd have immunity to the illness. However, Sarah noted it was pretty successful in terms of early inoculation. Sarah explains briefly how cell memory aids in fighting episodes of re-exposures. This is what gives us immunity or less a severe immune response when exposed. Development Of A Smallpox Vaccine Dr. Edward Jenner is considered the founder of vaccinology in the West. He noticed many milkmaids were immune to smallpox. He realized they were getting infected with cowpox (a related variola virus that is relatively harmless to humans), and the infection built an immunity to smallpox. In 1796, he inoculated his gardener's 8-year-old son by variolating cowpox pus from a milkmaid's hand. Jenner then demonstrated this immunity to smallpox by exposing the boy to smallpox 6 weeks later, and he didn't get sick. That's a lot of confidence! And also, not cool. Jenner then repeated this experiment multiple times over a couple of years with different people and published his methodology in 1798. He named his process vaccination because the cowpox virus is called vaccinia. Doctors started administering this as a smallpox vaccine all over the world in 1798. This is the first instance of understanding that exposing the body to a weaker version of a virus could stimulate enough of an immune response to tricker cellular memory. Over the 18th and 19th centuries, systematic implementation of mass smallpox immunization culminated in its global eradication in 1979. It took just about 200 years from the start of this vaccine to the eradication of smallpox. Other Vaccine Development Louis Pasteur's experiments spearheaded the development of live attenuated cholera vaccine in 1897. And then an inactivated anthrax vaccine in 1904. Plague vaccine was also invented in the late 19th Century. Between 1890 and 1950, bacterial vaccine development proliferated, including the Bacillis-Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination, which is still in use today. In 1923, Alexander Glenny perfected a method to inactivate tetanus toxin with formaldehyde. The same method was used to develop a vaccine against diphtheria in 1926. Pertussis vaccine development took considerably longer, and a whole-cell vaccine was first licensed for use in the US in 1948. mRNA vaccine technology Sarah tells the audience that many of the childhood vaccines given to children today were developed 70 – 100 years ago. There have been advancements in the vial today that are different from what was in the vial back then. However, the vaccine technology is pretty much the same now, and it was that then. Sarah underlines that mRNA vaccine technology was one of the biggest advancements since Jenner and Pasteur's experiments. Modern Vaccines When looking at vaccines today, they all have the same basic ingredients (18:20) They all work by stimulating an immune response against what's called an antigen. An antigen is a bad thing that makes us sick. The body develops immunological memory by the adaptive immune system in response to the antigen. It's the same way our immune system develops memory when we've been naturally infected. But because vaccines use weaker viruses, it goes without the danger of natural infection. Vaccinations are very costly and big investments to undertake. So we really only develop vaccines against illnesses that are very, very bad and have a huge impact on society. Up un…

1815: Insatiable Itching, Health Coaching Investment, Chronic Pain, Low Vitamin D, Extremely Fidgety, Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal (HouseCall)
Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Let’s get started! Cara: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am one of your IHPs and unfortunately it always seems like it's more difficult when we're addressing our own health concerns. In May my father passed away and this was onto of many other stressors. At that time I developed a quarter size rash on both my hips. It took a couple weeks to go away but then an insatiable itching took it's place. This has been going on for 7 months now. If I have a compromised gut due to stress, I have no other symptoms so Im not sure if thats a place to start investigating. The itching usually happens twice a day. I have done a 7 day FM detox during this time and no improvement. I also had a colonic 2 weeks ago and there was no candida or parasites. Please point me in the right direction. I cannot afford my own personal health coach at this time... I'm a newly single mom and trying to figure it all out in the most precarious of times. Thank you Dr. Cabral for all you do!! Mike: Hello. Wondering what the investment is to work with Stephen Cabral and how his waiting list is? Thank you Mike Kica: Hello Dr. Cabral, My husband has been suffering from chronic pain for the last 7 years. He’s about 53 years of age now. It started with a bad cold he got from our son and since then he’s never been the same. He’s had all sorts of test done, seen neurologist, taken antidepressants. By the western medics standers he’s a health man. On top of all this , physical activity makes him feel worse. The only thing he can do is walk. So he doesn’t have a way of releasing his stress by sweating it off. He also has mild sleep apnea. He recently told me he never feels good. It’s very sad. He’s a very bright man! Before we make the financial commitment, as I’m sure your services are not covered by insurance, I was wondering if you can help him. Do you have any cases like this? I also, would like to understand better your approach. Is it nutrition and vitamins? He’s tried cleanings and detox but it has not made a difference on his pain at all. Looking forward to hearing back from you.Best, Kica Flossie: Since the first time I heard you on Allison Melody's podcast Food Heals, I have been hooked to your podcasts. Your story is extremely inspiring and you have a wealth of knowledge. Your story inspired me to write my book "Village Vibes" on my story on reversing an autoimmune disease. I am looking to raise up my low Vitamin D levels of 18 that was recently tested to the recommended 50 -70. What are your recommendations especially because I have a history of HTN. Thank you Flossie Carla: Hey Dr Cabral, thank you so much for everything that you do. Well all truly appreciate your dedication to help others. My question is regarding my husband, he’s 30 (pitta body type) and EXTREMELY fidgety. I’ve never met anyone as fidgety as he is and it is extremely irritating not only for the people around him but for himself as well. He has done various 21 day functional medicine detox and has just finished month 3 of the CBO finisher after completing the CBO. He takes the daily foundational protocol level 3 every single day with the additional of balanced zinc, full spectrum magnesium and adrenal soothe. His nutrition is based on your recommendations and he exercises more days than not. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks! Arthur: I believe I've been suffering from mercury poisoning, from my 12 amalgam fillings, most of my life. I mean suffering. I've recently had half of them safely removed (SMART) and the rest soon. Mercury in my blood was at 11, but I feel there is a lot of mercury in my cells and it has started affecting my organs and especially my brain. I need a detox program. I'm a little worried about doing it wrong. So, where should I start?

She read Delay, Don't Deny in 2019. In May of 2020, after her second pregnancy, Nikki went back to IF. She has lost 20 pounds, has a ton of energy and improved mental clarity, is more active, and no longer needs her afternoon latte! The advice Nikki would give to new IFers: "Be patient. The weight loss may not happen right away. Don't overthink it. It's a lifestyle, not a diet."   Get Gin’s books at, including her New York Times Bestseller, Fast. Feast.
