We are BACK with season 3 of SIBO Made Simple! I’m tackling some of your most-requested topics right at the beginning of the season, including today’s conversation, which is all about the skin-gut connection. Rashes, breakouts, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea—you name it, and I’ve been asked if it’s a symptom of SIBO.
Luckily, I was able to bring on the perfect person to talk about how what shows up outwardly on our face is connected to the internal motherboard. Dr. Amy Bader, a naturopathic physician and creator of SkinTē, is here to explain her process of evaluating someone’s skin and what it tells her about thyroid and adrenal health, gut integrity, liver function, and so many other underlying issues.
A quick taste of what we’ll cover:
- What skin complaints correlate to which larger bodily failures
- Why dermatologists get it wrong with Bandaid treatments
- How to connect the dots between hormone, skin and digestive health
- The unsung role of our liver in maintaining clear skin
- How SIBO, low stomach acid, and fungal issues contribute to our skin’s loss of tolerance to normal flora
- Estrogen dominance, period problems, and how your cycle influences skin health
- Why bacteria is not the enemy of your skin and antibiotic use can fan the flames of skin issues
- Scalp health and what your dandruff means
- And so much more…
