IS SIBO THE ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR GUT PROBLEM?

SIBO: Could it be what’s causing your digestive issues?

Presented by Dr. John Yim, ND

Do you experience a number of these signs and symptoms?

-Abdominal bloating and distension worsened by probiotics (especially with prebiotics)

-Diarrhea or constipation (the latter is worsened by fiber)

-Abdominal pain or discomfort 

-Acid reflux

-Excessive belching

-IBS symptoms improve when taking antibiotics

-Chronically low blood iron or ferritin with no known cause

Small intestinal bacteria overgrowth or SIBO may be the cause of the above signs and symptoms. Studies show that 50% of patients diagnosed with IBS actually have SIBO.

The bulk of our gut bacteria should reside in our large intestines. When the bacteria normally living in the large intestines migrate backwards into the small intestines or when there is low stomach acid or low pancreatic enzymes, bacteria in the small intestines can overgrown and cause a range of signs and symptoms.

In this interesting and informative presentation, Dr. John Yim, will share the most common conditions that may predispose you to have SIBO. How to test for SIBO and most importantly how to treat it. 

Dr. Yim, with specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of SIBO and Gut Health, brings more than 30 years of experience sharing his passion and knowledge of Natural Health and Vitality. An entertaining and well known speaker, he will share information on:
