EP. #21 WTF IS A VAGUS NERVE? - plus how to test your gut for pathogens & overgrowths

Ever since getting COVID from my dad and experiencing GI symptoms as my main presentation, the microbiome has clearly been at the top of my mind. I just got my GI Map results back from my doctor (which is an advanced DNA based stool test that looks for overgrowths of different pathogens), and we found some interesting bugs which reinforce that oral/gut connection I’ve been stressing in recent episodes. We even found a bug that may actually be contributing to my recent neck pain - I’m telling you, it’s alllll connected! This episode could not come at a better time, as Dr. Stephanie Canestraro is here to bless us with some juicy tips on how she treats pesky gut infections and why the vagus nerve (the largest nerve in your body) is the key to keeping them away. After coming close to a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and making a full recovery, Dr. Stephanie became passionate about the gut-brain connection, and is here to give us all the straight #facts about SIBO, bile salts, your microbiome and why oral care is imperative. Not only has she learned how to THRIVE with a sensitive system, she’s here to help us see the crucial connection between the gut and literally everything else — so buckle up for a deeply informative episode.
