The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.51
SIBO Food Phobias with Riley Wimminger
In far too many cases, SIBO patients can end up with phobias surrounding the food they eat. For many people, eating leads to painful digestive symptoms, so it is understandable why so many people learn to fear food. Nutritionist Riley Wimminger discusses this with Rebecca on this week’s podcast and provides some handy tips on what can be done to overcome food phobias. Riley also explores why it is important to understand what nutritional deficiencies you may be experiencing, particularly after prolonged dietary restrictions.
