Interest in small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) has been increasing ever since it was identified as an underlying cause of IBS- the most common gastrointestinal disorder in the U.S. SIBO can cause symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and/or diarrhea and food reactions. Diets such as the specific carbohydrate diet, GAPS diet and the low fodmap diet can offer remarkable benefits. Discussion will include leaky gut, bone broth, fructose and lactose intolerance, sources of lactose-free dairy, the role of fiber in SIBO, the controversial topic of how one of the ?displacing foods of modern commerce? can actually lessen SIBO symptoms and when to augment diet with other SIBO treatments.
