Krystyna Houser is the founder of Good LFE. A busy mom of three living in Brooklyn, NY. Her journey of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) diagnosis and treatment took several years and inspired her to create Good LFE, a multifaceted product and lifestyle brand focusing on microbiome health and wellness for those struggling with SIBO and IBS.

She bravely refused to take the standard antibiotic regiment for SIBO, took responsibility for her own health and body and ultimately conquering SIBO by making the food changes her body needed.

In this episode, we explore:

  • How to get correctly tested and diagnosed. Spoiler – be careful of DIY tests!
