SIBO and the Elemental Diet

SIBO and the Elemental Diet

SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is a condition that occurs when an overgrowth of bacteria resides and over-populates the small intestine causing possible symptoms of bloating, gas, indigestion, abdominal pain, diarrhea or loose stools.

The problem, if left untreated, can lead to the inability to absorb nourishment and nutrients from food, possibly leading to a type of malnutrition and vitamin deficiency.

At Pearl Natural Health, SIBO is considered part of the health picture with symptoms that range from poor appetite, foggy thinking, digestive disorders from mild to more severe including IBD and IBS.

We offer onsite SIBO testing to evaluate its presence and diet is a major part of treatment. For people who absolutely find most foods irritating, an Elemental Diet can be recommended.

In this short video Pearl Natural Health’s Dr. Gary Weiner talks all about the Elemental Diet: what it is and why it is recommended in cases of IBD.

If you want help with SIBO call today to set up your first appointment.
