Alchemy of Health Webinar Series – The Impact of SIBO on Gut Disorders
How did SIBO get there?
Is it IBS or SIBO?
Why is it important?
Small Intestinal Bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is present in about 50% of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) cases. The microbiome lives predominantly in the large bowel, but when pathogenic microbes are found further upstream in the small intestine, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) or small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) may occur.
SIBO results in reduced motility or constipation and symptoms of SIBO mimic that of IBS which may include bloating, foul-smelling wind, chronic abdominal discomfort, nausea, even malnutrition.
The main mechanisms involved are disordered gastric enzymes, or small intestinal peristalsis which leads to disruption of normal mucosal small intestinal defences.
SIBO is largely caused through poor diet and digestion, overuse of antibiotics and antacid medications, or some physical abnormalities. Its characteristic symptoms often don’t respond to traditional GUT therapies. Fibre may aggravate constipation.
In this webinar, you will learn:
✔ Is it SIBO or IBS?
✔ How did SIBO get there?
✔ SIBO Diagnosis
✔ SIBO diet or low FODMAP Diet
✔ Management of SIBO
