We get used to thinking of things a certain way. We get used to things the way they are and start to anticipate that it will remain the same. It becomes “normal” or familiar. Even discomfort and pain can become our usual existence. We find ways to suppress the discomfort, but that doesn’t really solve it.  

 

By standing back and observing from a different perspective, we can see that what we experience as discomfort or pain is actually our body telling us that it needs attention. That it is over-stressed and under-rested. 

 

When we are stressed day in and day out, our nervous system doesn’t have a chance to reset, and our digestion doesn’t have a chance to digest and absorb nutrients that we need.  

 

When we push ourselves to extremes – of too much or too little – even of something that is “good” for us, it can become a stress too. 

 

That stress leads to inflammation, overgrowth of microbes in the microbiome, and susceptibility to a whole range of health issues. 

 

In this episode, I talk about:  

 

How our digestion works 

 

How your body and digestion are unique 

 

What is the microbiome 

 

How to think about being a human with a microbiome 

 

What disrupts your microbiome 

 

Ways to help bring your microbiome back into balance 

 

What is helminthic therapy and how it can help 



By understanding the body you live in and what it needs in order to thrive, you can make choices to give your body what it needs and not too much of what it doesn’t need more of. 

 

Listen in to learn a different perspective on your digestion and health in general. Please reach out if you’d like more information about how I can help you.

Whether you are struggling with hormone imbalances (PMS, PCOS, menstrual cramps, fertility issues, low thyroid function), infections (EBV, HPV, recurrent UTIs, vaginitis, etc), autoimmunity, anxiety, migraines, or joint pain…and even if you don’t have any digestive symptoms…it’s important to start by healing your gut. 

 

Why? Because your digestion is where you digest your food and absorb nutrients from your food. Those nutrients then go on to help make hormones, neurotransmitters, and to support immune function.  

 

Your digestion is also where your gut bacteria – which outnumber the human cells in your body – do important things like make nutrients and neurotransmitters, detoxify hormones, and support healthy immune function.  

 

In this episode, I talk with Dr. Destia Skinner [IG @drskinnersonline], Naturopathic Doctor and my classmate at Bastyr University in the 90’s, about: 

 

-How to know if your gut needs attention 

 

-Where to begin with supporting digestion 

 

-Simple things you can do right now to help your gut 

 

-What causes leaky gut 

 

-How leaky gut can cause symptoms anywhere in the body (or brain) 

 

-What is the microbiome 

 

-How does it get thrown off track 

 

-How to feed, and not over-feed, your gut bacteria 

 

We even had a chance to talk about fecal transplants and helminthic therapy as researched methods for re-establishing a health gut biome and digestion.  

 

It can be confusing and overwhelming to attempt to heal your gut on your own. There is so much contradictory information on the internet and varying approaches from different practitioner, that it can seem like you are spinning your wheels. 

 

Dr. Destia and I are here to help you solve your digestive distress, whether you knew it was an issue or not, including with the new online course she created with her husband (and also my classmate in ND school), Dr. Bryan Skinner. Find it as www.RevolutionaryGut.com.

This episode was recorded from one of Dr. Doni’s 5-Day Stress Recovery Workshops. She wanted you to get a sense of what she covers in the workshop while also learning how to think about your immune system differently than you may have thought about it before.  

 

Instead of working as a linear system with either more or less function, the immune system is much more complex, involving numerous mediators and activities.  

 

To truly shift or really reset your immune system, and improve your ability to fend off infections while also decreasing inflammation, allergies and autoimmunity, we need to stand back and address the immune system from a perspective of stress recovery.

Here’s why: Stress, of various forms, turns on genes that cause our genetic tendencies to increase. Stress also decreases our ability to fend off infections, and increases the likelihood of allergies and autoimmunity.  

 

While, yes, we can make diet changes to improve immunity, and take nutrients and herbs to support immune function, if we don’t get to the root cause of the issues, we’ll need to put in a constant effort and may never see enough change. 

 

In this episode, Dr. Doni talks about:

 

Diet changes that can reset your immune system 

 

How blood sugar imbalances relate to low immunity 

 

What does healing your digestion have to do with fending off infections 

 

Why big changes lead to small results, and small changes lead to big results 

 

How you can reset your gene expression and turn off autoimmunity 

 

What to take to fend off viruses, even chronic viruses like EBV and HPV 



If you’ve been stressed about preventing infections and wanting to feel protected from viruses, bacteria, etc, then you’ll want to listen to this episode.  

 

Dr. Doni helps you to see that by shifting your perspective about how you think about your immune system, you can become empowered and confident about fending off infections.

Perhaps you’ve heard of the gut-brain axis – the essential and often disregarded connection and communication between our nervous system and our digestion.  

 

Well, in the case of this interview with Dr. Peter Kozlowski [IG @doc_koz], functional M.D. and author of Unfunc Your Gut, we discuss the gut-brain axis and even more deeply, we talk about how emotional trauma affects gut health. 

 

Dr. Peter shares his personal story with emotional stress and how healing from alcoholism allowed him to be more open and loving to himself, and open to other medical approaches. That is how he came to complete training as a functional practitioner, during his medical residency, which was a rare opportunity that changed the trajectory of his career.  

 

Subsequently, he learned from experts in the functional medicine field, including why it is so important to heal the gut.  

 

In this episode we talk about:  

 

The gut-brain connection 

The vagal nerve 

Common symptoms that show your gut-brain axis needs attention 

What is leaky gut and how to heal it 

Is a food elimination diet worth doing 

When a food sensitivity test is indicated, and which to choose 

Understanding the gut microbiome and how to address it 

 

We also covered started tips to help you get your digestion back on track. Amazingly, the simplest things can make a big difference when it comes to digesting better and absorbing important nutrients. 

 

In addition to Dr. Peter’s insightful explanations, you’ll also hear about my experience as a naturopathic doctor helping patients with digestion distress, leaky gut, food sensitivities and stress-related health concerns over the past 21 years.  

 

If you’ve struggled with heartburn, nausea, bloating, and/or abdominal pain, you’ll definitely want to listen to this episode. And if you have a feeling that stress, whether recent or from your past, could be negatively affecting your digestion, this episode is going to give you so many answers.  

 

Listen in and feel free to share this episode with others who may be struggling with digestive issues.  

 

Below you can find information about my books, blog, Stress Remedy 21-day Program and supplement line, all designed to assist with recovery from the effects of stress, including for your digestion.  

 

The food elimination diet I designed is here: https://drdonistore.com/The-Stress-Remedy-21-Day-Program_p_225.html
