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.

There are many different ways to naturally approach healing SIBO. First and foremost, you should address making some dietary changes.  Click Here to see specific recipe books for dealing with digestive conditions.

Decrease Chronic Inflammation Now

Decrease Chronic Inflammation Nowinflammation is the root cause of disease

Chronic inflammation is your body’s  immune response to a barrage of environmental, physical and mental invaders. These stressors could be from things like poor diet, toxic chemicals and stress. Research has shown that inflammation in your gut can be the cause of inflammation in your joints and your brain.

What are Some Causes of inflammation?

Poor dietary choices such as processed foods, factory farmed proteins, sugary drinks, trans fats and certain unhealthy saturated fats

  • Gut health issues
  • Food sensitivities
  • Excess alcohol
  • Chronic infections (bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites)
  • Stress and exhaustion
  • Sedentary lifestyle

What are the Results of Chronic Inflammation?

Over time, chronic inflammation wears out your immune system, leading to chronic diseases and other health issues, including cancer, asthma, autoimmune diseases, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, osteoporosis and premature aging.

Unfortunately, these challenges are often treated with drugs, which may provide temporary relief from the symptoms, but do not treat the root of the problem. In addition, these drugs (and their side effects) sometimes only add to your health problems.

How Can You Reduce Chronic Inflammation?

  • Focus on gut health
  • Eat a plant based diet or as close to as possible
  • Identify and address food sensitivities
  • Identify any chronic gut issues such as bad bacteria, viruses, yeast or parasites
  • Destress, relax and rest more
  • Reduce toxins in your food, home and personal care products

How Can You Find Out the Root Cause of Your Inflammation?

With the help of Genova Diagnostics you can figure out where inflammation in your gut may be coming from. They offer easy to use at home gut tests such as the Genova Lab Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis and Parasitology,  which will identify parasites, abnormal bacteria, yeasts and other gastrointestinal issues. The Intestinal Permeability Test will help you determine if you have Leaky Gut.

Testing gives you invaluable information to help you create a game plan that targets the root of inflammation.

Some supplements that help with inflammation are; Probiotics, Co-enzyme Q10, carotenoids, fish oil, selenium, vitamins C, D and E.

Why Should You Take a Stool Test?

GI symptoms are your bodies way of warning you that something is wrong.

If you have ongoing intestinal symptoms  that’s your body’s way of telling you that your gut is out of balance.

Yes, the signs and symptoms you are experiencing are your body’s warning system. These red flags are asking you to pay attention to your body. The very first step you should take is an easy to do, ‘at home’ stool test.

Did you know that Gastrointestinal or GI problems are usually the most common reasons that people look for medical attention.

Stool testing gives you invaluable information about what’s going on in your gut. Maybe you are experiencing symptoms like diarrhea, gas, constipation or bloating. If so, it’s a good idea to find out what’s going on in your gut so you know where to start in repairing it.

Without this valuable information it’s a guessing game and you can waste hundreds of dollars trying different protocols to heal your gut, without getting to know what the cause is.

We recommend Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis to help you understand the underlying reasons for your symptoms.

What Does a Doctors Data At Home Stool Test Help You Determine?

  • Reasons for nausea, vomiting and bloating
  • Why you have loss of appetite
  • Abdominal, cramping and diarrhea causes
  • Absorption of nutrients
  • Parasites
  • Infections from bacteria, viruses, or funguses
  • Liver problems
  • Pancreatic function
  • Digestive conditions such as Crohn’s and Colitis

How is Dr.’s Data Test Different From Other At Home Stool Tests?

Doctor’s Data labs have been examining stool samples  for over 40 years. Doctor’s Data became the first lab in the functional medicine industry to introduce MALDI-TOF (Matrix- Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time of Flight) as a method of identifying bacteria and yeast in stool culture. MALDI-TOF works by measuring the unique “fingerprints” of our microorganisms. This spectra is then compared to a reference database for verification and identification.

What Makes the MALDI-TOF a Superior Measure for Stool Testing?

Doctor’s Data utilizes MALDI-TOF in combination with “high-complexity” culture for rapid, accurate and reliable identification of hundreds of gastrointestinal bacterial and yeast species, and even subspecies. The MALDI-TOF reference database is the most expansive and is growing by about 100 species per month. To date they have identified over 180 yeast species; 65 of these are Candida alone. This ability to differentiate is extremely important since some patients may have up to 6 or 7 different strains.

All of Doctors Data CSA tests use the MALDI-TOF technology. Heres what Sandra Richter, Director of Bacteriology in the departments of Clinical Pathology and Molecular Pathology at The Cleveland Clinic, had to say about it. “It is clear that this is a giant step forward in the accuracy and speed of organism identification routinely reported by the lab.”

What’s Crohn’s Disease?

Genova 2.0

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s is part of a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, shortened by using the initials IBD. The part of the body affected is the digestive tract,  where we digest our food.

Crohn’s most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, anywhere from the mouth to the anus.

This GI inflammation causes parts of the intestines to become red and swollen. The inflammation typically extends into the lining of the affected organs. Sometimes sores and even ulcers occur in the walls of the intestine.

Over time the chronic inflammation will result in digestive symptoms.

What are the  symptoms of Crohn’s?

  • cramping
  • abdominal pain
  • rectal bleeding
  • fatigue
  • persistent diarrhea (loose, watery, or frequent bowel movements)
  • weight Loss

How can you find out if you have Crohn’s?

Because Crohn’s disease is marked by an abnormal response in the body’s immune system it can be detected with an at home stool test. We advise clients to use Genova Labs 2.0.

Genova’s easy to use, at home stool test employs markers that tell the difference between IBD (Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis) and IBS (irritable Bowel Disease). If the test shows positive for IBD, further evaluation with a physician is appropriate.

What is the treatment for Crohn’s?

Start today with effective, natural supplements and a change of diet. Many people have been able to control their symptoms and encourage remission with a drugless approach.

For symptom relief here are natural, safe anti-inflammatories that can help reduce inflammation. Our clients do well with Serrapeptase, FYI and Aloe Concentrate. The products are safe to use and don’t have harmful side effects.

Could You Have SIBO?

Take Genova's Gut Test to Find Out If You Have SIBO

Could You Have Sibo? Found Out if SIBO Is the Cause of Your Digestive Problems

SIBO is actually an acronym for a digestive condition called  “small intestinal bacterial overgrowth,” which points to excessive bad or pathogenic bacteria in the small intestine.

The small intestine is known to have relatively low levels of bacteria. The highest numbers of bacteria are usually found in the large intestine

The small intestine is where the food you eat is combined with digestive juices. This is also the place where absorption takes place. This area of your digestive tract is the longest section. If you are suffering with SIBO or Small Intestine Bacterial Ovegrowth, your nutrients are not absorbing properly.

What are the Symptoms of SIBO?

  • gas
  • bloating
  • pain
  • malabsorption of nutrients

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth is often treated in Western Medicine with antibiotics. Unfortunately the antibiotics kill off the good bacteria.  Countless studies have shown that a good balance of healthy bacteria is necessary for a healthy gut

Find Out If You Have SIBO

The Genova Lab’s Breath Test can be done in the privacy of your home. It will identify whether there is an overgrowth of bad bacteria in your small intestine or not.

How Can You Reduce The Symptoms of SIBO?
