In this episode of Functional Medicine Research, I interview naturopathic physician Dr. Ilana Gurevich on overcoming inflammatory bowel disease. We had a deep discussion about testing and treatment options for inflammatory bowel diseases including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. We covered diagnostic testing, the pros and cons of stool test markers, probiotics, fiber, digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid, gut healing nutrients, diets like the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, helminths, and much more. It was a pleasure to have Dr. Gurevich’s expertise on inflammatory bowel disease.
In this episode of Functional Medicine Research, I interview Dr. Liz Lipski in a discussion about how to choose the best therapeutic diet for gut health. We discussed the low FODMAP diet, comprehensive elimination diet, Simple Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), GAPS diet, Paleo diet, histamine, pancreatic elastase and low HCL levels. Liz discussed why we would choose each one of these diets for an individual and what each diet entails. I use all of these diets in my practice so it was nice to have an overview of each diet from one of the top experts in gut health.
