Did you know that gastrointestinal health impacts hormones?
In this podcast episode, Sam is joined by fellow registered dietitian and GI health expert, Samina Qureshi. Samina specializes in helping people who struggle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) find relief and nourish their bodies without rigid diets, stress, guilt, or shame.
Sam and Samina chat about how Samina started taking a weight-inclusive approach to managing IBS, and the link between stress around food and gastrointestinal issues. They discuss potential links between PCOS and gastrointestinal issues, and how common PCOS nutrition advice can actually lead to diarrhea, bloating, and constipation.
In this episode, we discuss:
- Whether gluten and dairy are inflammatory for PCOS
- How restriction can make IBS worse
- The low FODMAP diet and how it’s used
- Tips if you have IBS when low FODMAP is too restrictive
