    Medical researchers have discovered a digestive condition that affects 84 percent of Americans with IBS. It’s called small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and the most common symptoms are constipation, diarrhea, bloating, and abdominal discomfort.

    The bacterial count of the small intestine is kept low in normal digestive function. However digestive disturbances cause bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, resulting in mucosal damage, maldigestion, malabsorption and altered peristalsis. A simple breath test can diagnose this and treatment offers remarkable benefits for IBS, unexplained abdominal pain and digestive syndromes, fibromyalgia, acne rosacea and restless leg syndrome.

    After taking this course, you will be able to:

    1. Describe the symptoms, etiology, and pathophysiology of SIBO.
    2. Correlate SIBO with established diseases and syndromes.
    3. Understand and be able to immediately apply diagnosis and treatment approaches for SIBO.
