All about SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
Updated: Mar 25
Often, women come to me for help, and I find they are struggling with SIBO - small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. This is a common occurrence that practitioners of all kinds often overlook. While it's possible to have SIBO and experience many of the issues mentioned above, SIBO can also be more "hidden" and more difficult to identify. Bloating, autoimmunity, skin issues, dental issues and overall digestive discomfort can be huge red flags. Many things can trigger SIBO, like the pill and other prescription medication, antibiotic overuse, low stomach acid, chronic stress, and food poising. Abdominal surgery, like a C-section, appendectomy, or gallbladder removal can also impact the small intestine and contribute to overgrowth.
To address this, it's essential to know the indications of SIBO and get confirmation through testing if you think that you might have SIBO but are not sure. Watch the video, and if you have any questions, don't forget to ask in the weekly Q&A!
