Follow Your Gut Podcast

Juniper Bennett

Ever wish you had a mama friend in your back pocket who wasn't afraid to talk about poop, vaginal infections, skin rashes, behavioral issues and everything in between? Someone who speaks about common symptoms clearly and gives you natural ideas of how to actually heal from the root (hello gut bacteria!) instead of masking? And I am not talking about essential oils here. While those have their place, I am talking deeper stuff - like causes, prevention and finding overall balance. As a mama to four I have gone through the ups and downs of sleepless nights, undiagnosed symptoms, gotten the complete runaround from the medical system and have found a different way. This podcast will empower you to heal your family. New episodes will be released every Tuesday morning. They will be short enough that you can probably time them perfectly with your cold cup of coffee and dry shampoo routine. Make sure you are subscribed so you automatically get my latest episodes. Sending you a big mama hug!

Sometimes Symptoms Get Worse Before They Get Better

Sometimes Symptoms Get Worse Before They Get Better
Rebalancing your gut is a transformative experience but it's important to know that sometimes symptoms get worse before they get better. For some people, rebalancing can bring about uncomfortable symptoms that may seem counterproductive. This phenomenon is known as die-off, or a Herxheimer reaction. While it might feel discouraging, it's actually a sign that your body is healing.The term "die-off" or Herxheimer reaction refers to the process where harmful bacteria, yeast, parasites, mold and other pathogens in your gut die in large numbers. When you start taking Cleanse and Nourish and eliminate the foods that feed these undesirable overgrowths, they begin to die. As this happens, they release toxins into your body, which can lead to a temporary worsening of symptoms. These symptoms can include:HeadachesFatigueDigestive discomfort (bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation)Joint or muscle painSkin rashesAnd most common, the worsening of whatever symptom you had in the first placeHow long does it last? And what should you expect if you are pregnant or breastfeeding? Will the toxins pass through your placenta or breastmilk? Tune into this episode for tips to support your body through this process and embrace the healing that awaits on the other side.Links from episode:Episode 101: How to Prepare Your Body for CleansingThe Children's Gut Rebalance KitThe Women's Gut Rebalance KitBalance CBDThanks for listening!

Everything you Need to Know About Rebalancing While Pregnant and Breastfeeding

Everything you Need to Know About Rebalancing While Pregnant and Breastfeeding
Rebalancing your gut while pregnant and breastfeeding is a topic that tends to be quite controversial. There is a narrative that says how dangerous it is to cleanse while pregnant and breastfeeding but a whole side that no one talks about is how dangerous it is to have parasites, an overgrowth of bad bacteria, pathogens, and yeast in your body while growing and nourishing a baby. In the early 1900s, 1 in 100 women experienced depression in their lifetime. Today it is 1 in 4. 1 in 2 children have a chronic disease today. Half of children! How can this be accepted and here we are being told that taking gentle measures to heal our body is “too dangerous”. This narrative needs to change and as the leaders of our own lives and our family’s, we have to be the ones to change it.Studies have shown that children with autism have significantly fewer good bacteria strains in their gut than children who do not have autism. 1 in 36 children in the United States were diagnosed with autism in 2023. This is an increase of 312% since 2000. The rise in chronic disease and overall sickness—we are being failed. Why are we not being educated on the significance of our gut health and how it is at the core of human well-being? I am not sure, but we are governed by a sick care system and a profit-driven pharmaceutical industry that focuses on treating symptoms rather than addressing the underlying causes and actually healing the human body.A balanced gut microbiome is crucial for maternal health during pregnancy and postpartum. Tune into to this episode to learn if rebalancing is safe for you or not. YOU are the expert of your own body and the guardian of your family. Own this with pride. Links from the episode:Episode 72: Everything You Need to Know About Silver SupplementsEpisode 97: Maternal Microbiome: Did You Pass an Imbalance to Your Baby During Birth?Gut Rebalance KitsThanks for listening!

You Have to Know This to Heal Eczema

You Have to Know This to Heal Eczema
I remember when my son was covered head to toe in the most itchy red rash. He was just a few weeks old and would scratch himself so badly that he would be dripping in blood if I looked away for even a minute. Even though I had put those little mittens on him. He was so uncomfortable he couldn’t sleep and would scream in pain for hours on end.If you or your child suffer from eczema, you are well aware that western medicines go-to solution is steroid creams. The problem with this is that steroid creams don’t address the root problem behind your eczema rash. The rash may go away but your body developed a rash in the first place because something is wrong and it’s asking you for help. When you bandage the deeper problem with topical treatments you miss the opportunity to really heal.Tune into this episode to learn how to heal from the root of your eczema.Links from the episode:Episode 95: Steroid Creams and Topical Steroid Withdrawal SyndromeEpisode 97: Maternal Microbiome: Did You Pass an Imbalance to Your Baby During Birth?Episode 87: Even When You Have Tried Everything, Your Child Can Heal with Brooke NorrisGut Rebalance KitsThanks for listening!

From Survival to ōNLē: A Journey of Healing, Purpose and Passion

From Survival to ōNLē: A Journey of Healing, Purpose and Passion
Episode 100! It's really surreal and incredible to reach this milestone. Since day one of The Follow Your Gut Podcast, my mission has been clear: to deliver easily understandable episodes that empower you. Throughout my family's gut health journey, I've searched for educational content like this—something relatable, validating, and instructive to guide us. Your support and engagement have fueled this podcast, and I'm beyond grateful for the opportunity to continue providing valuable episodes and knowledge as we navigate this path together.While pondering what to share for this 100th episode there was one obvious person I knew I had to ask. My husband Ty. He has been my biggest support in pursuing the creation of ōNLē and this podcast. He is my everyday rock. I’ve cried on his shoulder when mamas share their children’s health battles that are so painful it rattles my heart. I’ve cried in his arms when the business side has felt too much to handle. I’ve cried happy tears on his lap celebrating the thousands of women and children who have healed following the method I teach. When I asked him what I should share for the 100th episode his response surprised me. He said “Well I should interview you!” So that is just what we have in store for you. I never intended to be a business owner, a podcast host or an author. Mothering and homeschooling my four children has always been and will always be my number one purpose. But sometimes in life we go through experiences so profound we have no other option than to share.Thanks for listening!

Unless Allergies Genetically Run in Your Family, There is a Way to Heal.

Unless Allergies Genetically Run in Your Family, There is a Way to Heal.
Food and environmental allergies are at an all time high. We all know someone who suffers from severe allergies. Maybe you do? Or maybe your child? Maybe you have been to the allergist and have a long list of allergies or maybe you are just beginning to uncover what might be behind your and your child’s symptoms. The thing with allergies is that unless they genetically run in your family, there is a way you can heal your body. No one really talks about this though. At best, your child’s allergist will tell you “hopefully they outgrow it!” When my child was six months old we were referred to the best allergist in our town. He performed the skin prick test and my son who was exclusively breastfeeding at the time, tested severely allergic to nine different things. Eight foods and grass. We were told his allergies were so severe that he would likely have them forever and it would probably be best if I stop breastfeeding him to minimize the chances he could be exposed. We were sent away with a prescription for an epipen. Tune in to learn how he went from this to all nine of his allergies going away completely and his whole body healing.

Maternal Microbiome: Did You Pass an Imbalance to Your Baby During Birth?

Maternal Microbiome: Did You Pass an Imbalance to Your Baby During Birth?
Did you know that while in utero, a babies gut is sterile? They don’t have good bacteria or bad bacteria. During birth, they are exposed to their mother's microbiome when they pass through the vaginal canal. This initial inoculation kickstarts the colonization of the baby's gut with beneficial bacteria, laying the foundation for that child’s immune system and overall health. Unfortunately many of us unknowingly have an overgrowth of bad bacteria, yeast and even parasites that we pass along.This happened to me and my son. 😔I had no reason to ever know that my gut was imbalanced. I was so healthy with glowing skin, I have always been a healthy and regular pooper, I crave healthy and nourishing foods, and overall I would have never known I had an imbalance.Most women who come into my world whose child is suffering from symptoms like eczema, colic, reflux, digestive or sleep issues and even behavioral outbursts are in this same boat. Why and how was your gut imbalanced in the first place? How could it be possible for us to pass an imbalance onto our babies?In this episode I will teach you everything you need to know. Whether you are dreaming of conceiving, are pregnant or have children - you need to know this information.

Steroid Creams and Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome
Apr 23 2024
Steroid Creams and Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome
There is a woman on Instagram who has recently gone viral. Maybe you have seen her? She is very vulnerable sharing her extreme case of eczema. It’s all over her face, arms, hands -it’s everywhere. She cannot function in her daily life as a mom because her rash is so severe. Even worse, she went to the doctor and dermatologist and was prescribed steroids. On top of her eczema, she is now experiencing Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome. If you or your child suffer from an inflammatory skin condition like eczema, you are well aware that western medicines go-to solution is steroid creams. The problem with this is that steroid creams and even more natural based topical products is they don’t address the root of your eczema rash. The steroids may work. The rash may go away but essentially topical treatment are a bandaid. They work by quieting the body down when really, the body doesn’t want to quiet down. It developed a rash in the first place because something is wrong and it’s asking you for help. When you bandaid the deeper problem with topical treatments you miss the opportunity to really heal. And most times, your body will develop other symptoms. Over time, many people, especially children, develop Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome (TSWS). This is also known as topical steroid addiction or Red Skin Syndrome. It’s a condition that occurs when you develop withdrawal symptoms after discontinuing the use of topical steroids. These symptoms often manifest as redness, burning, itching, and flaking of the skin. Tune in to learn how to heal skin conditions from the root.

Healing Children’s Sleep, Behavioral Issues and Focus with Bridget

Healing Children’s Sleep, Behavioral Issues and Focus with Bridget
It’s so easy to measure the healing of visual symptoms like skin rashes, constipation and diarrhea. It gets a lot harder to measure the improvement of your mood, sleep or your children’s behavior. These tend to be symptoms that when they are present they are all consuming but as soon as they go away, you hardly remember how challenging they were. You can’t take pictures or compare side by side. But when you witness the transformation like our guest, Bridget, did in her son - you sing it from the rooftops. Our gut health is so intimately connected to our mood, behavior, thought processes and focus. I cannot wait for you to hear how rebalancing helped Bridget get her son back. This is a statement that I hear often from mamas . . . “I got my child back!” As mothers, we are oftentimes the only ones who know with certainty that our children are not themselves. Everyone else can tell us “oh that’s just how boys are” or “all kids experience hyper active symptoms at times”. This can be so isolating when we intuitively know differently. We know something is wrong and we desperately want to help them but society’s way of normalizing symptoms, prolongs our journey. Tune in to hear Bridgets story and how you can heal your child from the inside. ❤️​​Links from the episode:Explore the Children's Gut Rebalance KitExplore the Women's Gut Rebalance KitExplore the Maintenance BundleExplore Balance CBDThanks for listening!

Could Your Implants be the Cause of Your Health Issues?
After being bullied as a child, my dear friend Jody struggled with anorexia. Can you relate? At the young age of 20 she decided to get breast implants because she thought they would help her love herself more.

One where she had completely lost hope and didn't know how to get out of bed or be the mama or wife she desired being. In this conversation Jody so courageously and vulnerably shares her story and how after so many years of her health declining, she made a life changing connection.This is a story about fighting, being brushed under the rug, fighting so much more, losing hope and finally making connections that lead Jody to ultimate health. No matter what we do, how we change our lifestyles, improve our eating patterns or commit to our self-care, if we don’t get to the root - our bodies will not be able to heal.In this episode you will hear how Jody’s breast implants had mold in them, how they were leaching plastics and heavy metals into her body and how having them removed the “right way”  changed her life. She will teach you this right way and all the resources she mentions throughout the episode are linked below. Jody has many talents and her learning how to heal her body has created space for her to share her magic with the world. This is what happens when we heal. We get to live our purposes and share our magic with the world. You matter, your child matters. You are meant to fulfill your life purpose and love yourself enough to share it.

Everything You Need to Know About Candida

Everything You Need to Know About Candida
I have a very vivid memory of when my son was really unwell. He was six months old and we were back at the pediatrician for the third time that week because I knew something was terribly wrong. In addition to being covered in an eczema rash, he had so much mucus in his poop and while he was still breastfeeding, there were clumps of stringiness that just didn’t seem right. Then there was blood and I just kept taking him back in. His symptoms had been evolving over the past few months and I spent so much time googling trying so hard to figure out what was wrong. I found one photo that reflected so perfectly what I was seeing in my son's diaper. It was captioned Candida. Well here I was, back with the pediatrician with a cloth diaper full of mucus, blood, and some weird stringy clump, desperate for an answer. I asked if he could possibly have Candida? She quickly responded “definitely not. Everyone has Candida. This is just his body learning how to poop.” And we were sent on our way.This is an episode that really hits home for me. Because had I known what you will learn today, years of my child struggling would have been avoided. Had his pediatrician taken the time to explore what my google search upturned and my intuitive suspicion was, instead of quickly shutting me down, his first years of life would have been completely different. Links from the episode:Explore the Gut Rebalance KitsThanks for listening!
