After talking about autism and brain inflammation last time, today we’re looking at inflammation of the GI system (or gut). This is important because there is a strong connection between our brain and our digestive system.
At the risk of stating the obvious, the brain controls the entire body! And when there’s inflammation in the brain, it can cause a number of unwelcome symptoms. So let’s talk about symptoms and root causes of brain inflammation, as well as what we can do to help it.
In my own practice, I see plenty of SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and SIFO (small intestine fungal overgrowth). Following up on my last video on testing for SIBO and SIFO, I want to dive deeper now into treating the root causes of those conditions.
I’ve been getting lots of questions lately about how to test for SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) or SIFO (small intestine fungal overgrowth). So to complement my previous video on SIBO and SIFO, this post is a deeper dive into testing options for SIBO and SIFO.
Lately I’ve been getting lots of questions about why some autistic kids laugh excessively or at inappropriate times. You may have found some explanations on Google, but functional medicine provides another potential reason…one you may not have heard about elsewhere.
