Maybe you have been to the doctor with symptoms of bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and/or diarrhoea and been told you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS)? IBS is just an umbrella term for gut health problems, the name IBS does not tell us the underlying cause of your symptoms.
You may have been given certain medication and told to follow a low FODMAP diet but neither of which are working?
Does this sound like you?
Do you suffer with any of the following:
- Wind – either end?
- Acid reflux?
- Tummy pain?
- Food sensitivities?
- Intolerance to wine?
If you have answered YES to 2 or more then keep reading…
You might have something called SIBO. It stands for small intestinal bacteria overgrowth.
It is just what it says, an overgrowth of bacteria living in your small intestines.
An astonishing 85% of patients diagnosed with IBS test positive for SIBO but most doctors do not acknowledge it. With my IBS clients who test positive for SIBO, once we addressed the SIBO their IBS disappears.
How does SIBO cause IBS?
Bacteria should not live in the small intestine. They should be confined to your large intestine. The small intestine is purely for digestion and absorption of nutrients and if you have SIBO these bacteria get in the way of that and can cause any of the symptoms listed above.
The bacteria start to ferment your food that is passing through producing gas and bloating and constipation, diarrhoea or both depending on which bacteria are most abundant.
Maybe you have been to the doctor with gut health problems and been told you have IBS with no mention of SIBO at all? The term IBS doesn’t tell us anything other than what we already know which is that you have an irritable bowel. Your symptoms tell us that alone. What you need to know is what is causing your IBS and address that.
If you don’t treat it head on it will never go away and can end up controlling and ruining your life. So don’t let it.
I am offering you a FREE 30 minute health consultation to show you how to take control of your health. We can discuss your symptoms and decide whether a SIBO test is what you need.

What have you got to lose? Except your symptoms!!
This is a testimonial from Matilda, a client who came to see me with symptoms of acid reflux and bloating which got worse as the day went on. By the end of the day she felt very uncomfortable and had to loosen her trousers. She was also sensitive to certain foods and couldn’t tolerate white wine. She had been suffering for a few years with these symptoms.
After our initial consultation I knew exactly what was going on.
I suspected SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth), so we tested and sure enough she did have SIBO.
Matilda followed an 8 week protocol to rid her bacteria overgrowth which was causing her acid reflux, bloating and food and intolerances.
Her bloating and acid reflux have both completely disappeared and she has also lost weight which was a welcome bonus.
This is just one of example of why it is so important to get to the root cause of the problem. Matilda was relying on antacids for her acid reflux which was giving some instant relief but only making the SIBO more prolific. It was starting to make her feel very low and tired all the time.
