Before I started my SIBO treatment way back in 2017, I did what I do best: contact every person I knew who had ever had SIBO and force them to endure a game of 101 questions, gut edition. These conversation were SO helpful though, perhaps even more helpful than the internet research rabbit hole I eventually fell down.
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 not just today’s episode, but the next TWO, are going to be dedicated to SIBO and IBS success stories.
My guests today are two fantastic women in wellness: Davida Lederle, the extremely prolific content creator behind TheHealthyMaven.com, and equally prolific gut researcher Sarah Kay Hoffman of AGutsyGirl.com.
Both women ironically join me from Minnesota. Both have made it to the other side of SIBO. And though the road was far from easy, I think these two stories in particular are incredibly hopeful. So if you’ve gotten lost in the doom and gloom of online message boards and need a dose of real life perspective, I hope you give this episode a listen!

This episode is also brought to you by Higher Dose, whose sauna blanket is my new self-care obsession. The blanket has all the benefits of a normal infrared sauna—the detoxification, the increase in blood flow and circulation, and the lowering of cortisol levels—but in a much more compact package that you use every day at home. I’ve been using it 2x a week and have noticed a huge improvement in my mood, sleep, skin, and general inflammation. My face and body feel less bloated and puffy, and my pants are even fitting better.
