Season 2, Ep. 61

Dr Rachel Fresco is an acupuncturist, PhD, and founder and CEO of Bio-Botanical Research. Since 1989, Dr. Fresco has utilized her background in naturopathy, Chinese medicine, and clinical nutrition to create products that have a significant impact on challenging clinical conditions. She joins Rebecca to discuss how herbal therapies can be useful in the treatment of SIBO and biofilms. On today's podcast, they discuss:


-The Bio-Botanical Research range of products

-Why it’s important to use a biofilm buster in your treatment protocol and why biofilms can contain both bacteria and yeasts

-Why we should be supporting our treatment protocols with a seasonally appropriate diet

-Why we should consider our detoxification pathways when treating an overgrowth and biofilms

-Why die-off symptoms can be like for some patients

-Why we should all work with a practitioner who can oversee our treatment and monitor our symptoms

-Why botanicals are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-parasitic

-Why using a blend of various herbs can be more easily tolerated than single herbs alone

-Why chronic sinus infections should be treated with a nasal biofilm buster

-Dr Fresco’s views on using probiotics during SIBO treatment and why she favours spore-based probiotics
