Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) occurs when larger than normal amounts of bacterial begin growing in the small intestine. These bacteria cause extreme bloating, gas, diarrhea and/or constipation. SIBO can be caused by low stomach acid, thyroid disease, food poisoning, and anatomical issues.
Treatment for SIBO includes diet, lifestyle, and targeted supplementation to remove the bacteria, heal the gut lining, and restore normal gut motility. Dealing with SIBO can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! You don’t have to follow a low-FODMAP diet, or other crazy restrictive diet in order to heal.
With the right protocol, a healthy diet, and commitment you can conquer SIBO and get back to living your life.
