The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.29
Food sensitivities, intolerances and allergies with Erica Julson
Erica Julson joins Rebecca to talk all about food sensitivities, allergies and intolerances. Erica has a background in health psychology and retrained as a registered dietitian nutritionist to follow her passion for helping people to eat well for health. She and Rebecca get into the differences between immune and digestive responses to food, and how to know which you have. They also talk about how reducing inflammatory response is key when treating SIBO, and how vitamin deficiencies can lead to autoimmunity issues.
