SIBO Made Simple | EP 48 | SIBO Success Stories: Real Patients Talk About What It Took to Come Out on the Other Side with Bethany Ugarte and Alison Marras

Spread the love

This is part two of my SIBO success stories series, and the conversations with today’s guests cover so many overlapping conditions.

In case you missed the last episode: the majority of questions I get asked via email and Instagram are about my personal experience with healing SIBO, and even though I remind these sufferers again and again that every person’s body is different, I understand how refreshing and important getting all the nitty gritty details can be. Which is why I decided to do not one, but TWO episodes dedicated to women who have overcome their IBS.

My first guest is Bethany Ugarte who is the prolific instagrammer behind lilsipper, and author of the new book Digest This, a beautiful cookbook that features all the recipes she used to heal her gut. Bethany’s story is extreme and ultra-inspiring. She was once so underweight it hurt to sit in a chair. We talk about how she got back on her feet, literally, and what it took to manage her yeast overgrowth and gastroparesis.

My second guest in the lovely Alison Marras, who is a nutritional therapist and recipe creator behind the site Food By Mars. Alison is a fellow member of the HashiPosse and really went through the ringer with methane SIBO and hair loss.
