Rebecca Coomes The Healthy Gut Podcast with Dr Megan Taylor on Visceral hypersensitivity

The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.58

Visceral hypersensitivity with Dr Megan Taylor

Do you experience chronic pain with your SIBO? Do you still experience painful digestive symptoms despite getting the all-clear? Or perhaps you’re someone who reacts to everything, even water.

On today’s episode Dr Megan Taylor discusses why Visceral Hypersensitivity should be considered as part of your underlying conditions.

People with IBS are up to 90% more likely to have Visceral Hypersensitivity than the ‘average’ person. Dr Taylor and Rebecca discuss what it is, how it works and what you can do about it if you have it.

In Today's Episode

In Episode 58 of The Healthy Gut podcast, we discuss:

✓ Understanding what Visceral Hypersensitivity (VH) is

✓ The link between IBS, SIBO and VH

✓ Increased sensitivity across entire digestive tract

✓ That 33 – 90% of IBS patients have VH

✓ How VH occurs in the body

✓ Why the body interprets normal processes as pain

✓ Why VH might be at play when we experience digestive symptoms despite having negative test results (SIBO tests, acid reflux tests, when you react to everything including water)

✓ Who can be impacted by VH

✓ Why post infectious IBS patients can also have VH

✓ How we can recognize if we have VH

✓ How we can address VH; cognitive behavioural therapy, decrease hypersensitisation and pharmaceutical and herbal treatment options

✓ What we can do to prevent VH from developing
