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.
I was shocked to find out that my favorite store-bought hummus is made with canola oil! We want to avoid unhealthy fats like canola oil because they are inflammatory. Inflammation is a problem for everyone, but can especially worsen troublesome symptoms for our autistic kids.
Clean water is so important! City water supplies can be contaminated by things like heavy metals, human or animal medications, or even bleach. While there is testing and filtration for these things, some of them still end up in our water supply. So what can you do to make sure your autistic child (and the rest of your family) is drinking clean water?
