THP 014: Overcoming A lifetime of iBS through treating SIBO with rebecca coomes

It's mortifying to be congratulated on being pregnant when it's actually just bloating...

Rebecca Coomes is the founder of the website and coaching program, The Healthy Gut.

After suffering a lifetime of IBS-like symptoms she finally found an answer when a naturopath diagnosed her with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).

Going through the SIBO treatment gave Rebecca the energy and momentum to address other areas of her health, and since then she has been on a mission to help other people that are suffering from digestive disorders.

Rebecca has written two cookbooks that have recipes designed around Nirala Jacobi’s Biphasic Diet for treating SIBO.

In this interview, we talk about Rebecca’s journey to health and how she is now inspired to help others.
