JTG #34 SIBO Made Simple With Phoebe Lapine + A New Podcast Segment On Supplements For Clear Glowing Skin

In this episode of the Journey To Glow podcast, we talk to author, chef, podcast host and super fun gal Phoebe Lapine of SIBO Made Simple.

We also have a new segment called “Caroline Loves” where I share my favorite supplements for clear & glowing skin. This segment is the first of 3 parts, so make sure you subscribe to the podcast!

You can also read my comprehensive blog post on supplements to support skin health here.


Phoebe Lapine is a food and health writer, gluten-free chef, wellness personality, culinary instructor, award-winning blogger, recipe developer, Hashimoto’s advocate, podcast host and speaker, born and raised in New York City, where she continues to live and eat.

After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, Phoebe spent most of her mid-twenties getting on board with the health hand she was dealt, and using her professional experience in the kitchen to heal her body with kale-packed comfort food.

Her debut memoir, The Wellness Project, chronicles her journey with Hashimotos Thyroiditis and how she finally found the middle ground between health and hedonism by making one lifestyle change, one month at a time. It’s part memoir, part wellness primer (with 20 recipes), and it’s her hope that the story offers those who feel overwhelmed by health to-do’s a real road map for healing–or, at least one that doesn’t involve doing all of the above all at once.

On her award-winning blog, Feed Me Phoebe, she shares recipes for healthy comfort food, insights about balanced lifestyle choices beyond what’s on your plate, and all the reasons why kale margaritas are better than no margaritas at all. In 2013, Food & Wine magazine named the site as one of the top food blogs in their first ever Digital Awards. Saveur also nominated Feed Me Phoebe as one of the Best Special Interest Blogs in their 2015 Food Blog Awards.

My skin is in crisis, now what?

6 simple & effective steps to help you navigate your skin crisis

Why I chose doTERRA 100% Pure Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils 

When I discovered doTERRA essential oils, I had no idea that I'd found precious allies that would support my emotional, mental and physical well-being.

I now use essential oils everyday in my skincare, my morning rituals (have you tried cardamon essential oil in your coffee?!), to banish brain fog mid-afternoon with a drop of peppermint and I enjoy the soundest of sleep thanks to a few drops Serenity in my bedside diffuser.

And can I just take a moment to brag here and say that I have NOT gotten a cold since using our powerhouse called OnGuard? Yep, that's right.  I support my immune system by using certified 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils. (Purity is CRUCIAL. Don't expect results from cheap, untested oils.)

I've transformed my pharmacy into a natural farmacy.  And best of all? IT WORKS.
