A recent article titled "Brain fogginess, gas and bloating: a link between SIBO, probiotics, and metabolic acidosis" published in Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology has the whole SIBO world buzzing. I want to take a moment to dissect this article and discuss w...

We all know it's true, but what can be done about it?

We're under more stress than ever before. Children, chronic health issues (including SIBO!), the cost of healthy food, money in general, the rat race, our jobs, politics, road rage and bad drivers... AHHH. Is stress...

Oh, the controversy!

Yes, I admit it, I am one of "those" people who frequently demonizes gluten. And yes, while there are many articles on the web saying that "non-celiac gluten sensitivity" isn't a real thing**, one in particular caught my eye two year ago. This artic...

Many SIBO sufferers find relief in antibiotics (Rifaximin or natural), only to have their SIBO grow back and their IBS come right back. Why is SIBO so hard to get rid of?
