The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.19
SIBO: Eastern and Western medicine with Dr Whitney Hayes
Dr Whitney Hayes is passionate about using the tools of both Eastern and Western medicine in her treatment of patients with IBS and SIBO. Initially uninterested in becoming a doctor, Dr Hayes had an interesting personal journey before ultimately qualifying as a naturopathic doctor and Chinese medicine practitioner. Her journey has led her to believe that combining ancient technologies with modern research is key in SIBO treatment. She and Rebecca get into the different ways that she helps patients back to good gut health, using a combination of acupuncture, naturopathic supplements and lifestyle suggestions.

connect with Dr Whitney Hayes
I am a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist. One area that I have great passion for treating is naturopathic gastroenterology. I love treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and all the related things that come along with that diagnosis, as well as many other digestive disorders, such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis. One particular cause of IBS is SIBO. I have helped many patients with this condition. Another area of focus is treating children with digestive illnesses. I love helping kids, and adults, achieve optimal digestive health. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two daughters. We enjoy hiking with our dog, backpacking, cross-country skiing, gardening, and cooking wonderful meals with friends.
