SIBO: Start Looking to the Brain for Solutions

Today we will be discussing small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Even as recently as two to three years ago this was a novel diagnostic entity in the world of gastroenterology. At that time there was still considerable skepticism surrounding the concept of SIBO. However, in the past three years SIBO as a diagnosis has gained traction, yet for those practitioners and patients involved with managing SIBO realize how persistent this condition can be.

In today’s broadcast we will illuminate on how many cases of SIBO reoccur after appropriate antimicrobial and dietary interventions, and why the focus for those involved with refractory SIBO needs to be shifted to the brain, as this area of the body has tremendous control over gastrointestinal motility and sphincter tone.
