Sara Kahn, MS, CNS, CDN
Clinical & Functional Nutritionist, Founder of Belly Bliss Nutrition
I am a board-certified clinical & functional nutritionist in New York City and virtually by video conference all over the country.
Like most of my clients, I have struggled with digestive issues for years, not to mention anemia, nutrient deficiencies, and skin conditions. It wasn’t until I understood the root cause of my symptoms that true healing could begin.
After being diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), I met with several doctors, tried numerous elimination diets and took a gazillion supplements over the years. I would get some relief but symptoms would always return.
Several years later, I was diagnosed with and treated for SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) and the underlying causes, which for me include bacterial gastroenteritis, history of antibiotic usage and major stress. I can now tolerate a vastly increased number of foods, which frankly, makes life way more enjoyable and much less stressful.
I have experienced first hand how nutrition for IBS & SIBO has impacted my health. But it wasn’t just a change in diet that helped. I took an integrative, multi-pronged approach to healing including stress management (thanks to meditation and yoga), movement (regular moderate exercise – no more spinning for me) and improved sleep.
