Simple Breath Test For SIBO

Genova Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth - SIBO

SIBO Breath Test

How Do You Know If You Have SIBO?

SIBO tends to be under-diagnosed. This is because most people learn to live with the discomfort of regular gas and bloating, often aided by over-the-counter medications. Fortunately, there is an easy at home breath test by Genova that can aid in diagnosis.

Did you know that 80% of people who are diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are also said to have SIBO.

Common symptoms of SIBO may include:

  • Gas
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal discomfort

What Causes SIBO?

SIBO is typically the result of a poor diet including excessive sugar, refined carbohydrates, and alcohol. However, diet is not the only contributing factor for SIBO. Other causes of SIBO may include low stomach acid, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), prior bowel surgery, excessive antibiotics and diabetes.

Is There a Test for SIBO?

If one or a combination of symptoms occurs fairly regularly, you may warrant further investigation. You can take an at home test, like the Genova Lab Bacterial Overgrowth in Small Intestine Breath Test.

This home test is a non-invasive way to detect bacterial overgrowth in the small bowel. It’s also easy to do, and it can be administered in the comfort of your own home and at your convenience.

What are Some Problems that Occur When SIBO Goes Untreated?

Besides the irritating and sometimes debilitating symptoms of discomfort associated with SIBO, overtime you can become malnourished. This is due to a malabsorption of nutrients, particularly fat-soluble vitamins and iron. Click Here to read more about this from DR. AXE.

Remember, if you experiencing digestive symptoms your body is trying to tell you something. Get to the root cause of these symptoms today.

Breaking The Vicious Cycle

What If I told You There Was A Diet That Could Help Chronic Digestive Symptoms, Reduce Inflammation and Heal Your Gut?

Breaking the Vicious Cycle was written by Elaine Gottschall, biochemist and cell biologist to provide an alternative way to treat digestive disorders using dietary changes.

What’s the SCD Diet?

Elaine Gottschall’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is based on the principle that specifically selected carbohydrates need minimal digestive processing. These select carbs are well absorbed and do not encourage microbial overgrowth in the GI tract.

Elaine’s book talks about using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help reduce inflammation and heal the gut.

What Are the Digestive Conditions Healed by the Right Diet?

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

This book gives  practical recipes that address the problems of intestinal conditions such as:

Celiac Disease
Crohn’s Disease
Diverticulitis
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Chronic Diarrhea
Indigestion

How Does The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Work to Heal?

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is outlined in her book with easy to follow recipes. It’s a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free meal plan.

The SCD works by severely limiting the availability of carbohydrates to intestinal microbes. This is important because of all dietary components, carbohydrates have the greatest influence on intestinal microbes (yeast and bacteria), which are believed to be involved in intestinal disorders. Most intestinal microbes require carbohydrates for energy.
