These two really hit close to home. These two things have been BIG deal-breakers for my own gut healing, as well as many of my patients'.
I think one of the big reasons SIBO sufferers continue to suffer is that that many have the wrong mindset. For many people, when they FINALLY get a diagnosis that makes sense (like SIBO) they figure "okay, that's IT". It's like people assume that they've ruled out everything else because now they know that they have SIBO, when in reality that couldn't be further from the truth.
As I describe in my book and videos, SIBO is never the only thing you have. If you have SIBO you also have 1. something that triggered it in the first place and 2. downstream consequences from having SIBO. Two of those downstream things are gluten sensitivity and leaky gut.
Then there's the big elephant in the room: Stress. I talk about it more in the video, but I will be the first to tell you that stress will completely wreck your gut. If you're not managing this piece of the puzzle, your SIBO can and will come back.

The good news is that it is possible to treat SIBO, most often naturally. No, it's not a quick fix, but it can be done. Through a combination of dietary modifications (not low FODMAPs), exercises, and supplements, I have seen great progress be made with this notoriously hard to treat condition.
If you are ready to work with me on your SIBO, please download my e-book "Why conventional Medicine CAN'T Cure IBS" below. The application process to become a patient is discussed in the last pages of that book.
