SIBO – The Likely Cause of ‘Tummy Troubles’

1:5 Adults Struggle with Digestive Problems – The Majority of them Women.

If you’re one of them, do you know what’s causing your ‘stomach issues’?

If you struggle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms like gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, reflux, or cramps, the first step to fixing it is to find the root cause. For these symptoms, the most likely cause is small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

In brief, SIBO is an overgrowth of gut bacteria in the wrong location.  Usually there should be lots of bacteria in your colon but very few in your small intestine.  However, with SIBO, there are a lot of bacteria in the small intestine.  These bacteria ferment fiber (producing gas) and pull in water.  The result of this gut full of water is digestive symptoms. 

In this podcast episode, learn all the details of:

  • What small-intestinal bacterial overgrowth is
  • What the signs and symptoms are (they’re not all digestive)!
  • How it’s diagnosed
  • How it’s treated
  • How to prevent it from coming back
  • The best dietary approach (before, after, and during treatment)
