The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.69

Traumatic brain injury and SIBO

If you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) you may have noticed that your gut behaviour has changed. This week Rebecca is joined by Kayle Sandberg-Lewis who specialises in TBI’s and their treatment. Kayle and Rebecca discuss how to identify a TBI, what happens to your brain when you experience a TBI, how this can affect your overall health and specifically the gut/brain connection.

In Today's Episode

In Episode 69 of The Healthy Gut podcast, we discuss:

  • TBI’s vs non TBIs

  • Why questioning is so important to determine if a TBI has occurred

  • What to do if you have a TBI

  • The differences between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system, and how to identify which is dominant

  • The changes that can occur in the gut following a TBI

  • Why practicing mindful eating after a TBI is important

  • Why TBIs should be treated as a disease process instead of a static event

  • How closely the brain and the gut are interlinked

  • What treatments can help to resolve TBIs

  • The statistical likelihood of having another TBI
