In case you missed my video on SIBO, here it is:

What is SIBO?

“Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), defined as excessive bacteria in the small intestine. Patients with SIBO vary in presentation, from being only mildly symptomatic to suffering from chronic diarrhea, weight loss, and malabsorption.”
Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology

Cause

The microflora in your intestinal tract must always be in balance, however there are several things that can negatively affect the health and balance of your microflora including:
Antibiotics
Vaccinations
Medications
Processed Foods

Solution

The solution for SIBO is relatively simple, a diet that promotes a healthy and balanced microflora. You can optimize your gut flora with the following diet:

Organic plant based diet (Locally grown, seasonal foods)
Healthy fats such as coconut oil and olive oil
Fermented Vegetables
Probiotic Supplements
Juice Vegetables
Blend Fruits
Raw Dairy
Decrease Omega 6’s and Increase Animal based Omega 3’s
