There’s no one approach to SIBO, which is what often makes patients so confused. And today’s guest has also stood in those shoes. This week, I’m joined by Dr. Allison Siebecker, who is nicknamed “the Queen of SIBO.” She is a naturopathic physician, award-winning author, clinician and teacher. And if you’ve already done a deep dive on SIBO, you have likely already landed on her free informational website, siboinfo.com, which is an unparalleled resource for treatment and awareness. More importantly, she’s a chronic SIBO case herself, and we’ll hear about how her own struggles inspired the amazing work she’s now doing in the field.
This episode covers a ton of ground, including the SIBO-IBS connection, symptoms, testing, root causes, risk factors, the three main treatments for SIBO, how to choose a diet that’s right for you, and the best methods for prevention. It’s a perfect starting point if you want to understand all aspects of SIBO in under an hour.
