Course Information

What is SIBO?

SIBO is a condition where normal bacterial flora from the large intestine migrates up into the small intestine where they aren’t supposed to be. The overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine, allows certain foods that are eaten to ferment and to be acted upon by the overgrowth.

The result is that SIBO infected individuals tends to have a lot of gas, bloating, belching, abdominal pain, nausea and fatigue. Depending on the type of SIBO present, individuals may have chronic diarrhea or constipation.

SIBO has gained attention lately as more and more people are struggling with IBS and are looking to SIBO as the potential cause of their GI issues.

Dealing with SIBO is a journey full of trials and tribulations, getting rid of SIBO can be HARD work. Scientific and clinical understanding of the condition is continuing to grow, protocols and recommendations are constantly evolving as with any gut condition. This means that what works for one person may not work for the next.

Unfortunately, many practitioners do not suspect SIBO as a problem as they are unaware of the indications and are not testing appropriately or they are testing their patients for SIBO without having adequate knowledge of the complex protocols involved in successfully treating the condition.

The result is that many SIBO sufferers try over and over to clear the infection and they either fail to get rid of it or they get re-infected.

Therefore if you have clients with IBS, gas, fatigue, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation? That have had stool tests come back clear of pathogens, however there are indications of larger issue going on in your client’s GI tract? It’s quite probable that the client may have a SIBO.
