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 article stated that most people who think they are gluten sensitive are actually FODMAP intolerant (which most likely means they have SIBO). Please recall my stance on the low FODMAP diet here.
** Yes it is.
Look, guys. SIBO is never the only thing wrong with you (read this). There are always other dominoes that have fallen, it's just a matter of how many and which ones.... But I can tell you from clinical experience that leaky gut and inflammation and their downstream domino, food sensitivities, are almost always at play.
So, no., you don't get a free-gluten pass if you have SIBO. You're most likely right here in the inflammation/autoimmunity/leaky gut/food sensitivity club with the rest of us.
SIBO Mistake #5: Gluten
The good news is that it is possible to treat SIBO, and oftentimes that can be done 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 couple of pages of that book.
