The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.17
sibo: growing for health with kyrstie barcak
In this week’s Healthy Gut Podcast Rebecca talks to Kyrstie Barcak, founder of A Fresh Legacy, creator of The Kitchen Garden Box and a passionate recipe developer. A Fresh Legacy seeks to help and inspire adults and kids alike to create their own kitchen garden, teaching them to plant and grow food for the whole family to enjoy. Rebecca and Kyrstie chat about the joy of growing our own food, and why it is better for us. Kyrstie has experienced her own digestive issues from an early age that have continued throughout her life. She was diagnosed with Methane dominant SIBO last year, so we dig into her journey with this condition, how she managed a busy business and family along with the emotional aspects that come with chronic illness. She has also experimented with two different diet protocols and shares her experience with them.
