Gut Health Quiz

 

Do you suffer needlessly with a digestion woe? Is it uncomfortable or simply annoying when you bloat for no reason! Even after eating healthy?

When it comes to digestive health function, it’s very important to address each person individually! For most it can be quite a simply solution.

Are you at risk for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth? Do you suffer with any of these symptoms?

According to Dr. Pimentel, one of the leading SIBO experts, 84% of IBS cases are actually SIBO. Therefore, if you have IBS, there is a high likelihood that it’s actually caused by migration of bacteria called SIBO.

 

Bacteria are an essential part of a healthy small bowel, they perform important functions, SIBO [small intestinal bacterial overgrowth] can lead to intestinal permeability / leaky gut and a number of other symptoms. 

 

Where do the bacteria come from?

  • Ingestion- bacteria enter orally constantly

  • Mouth/throat- a normal place of bacterial colonisation

  • Small Intestine- scant but they can overgrow

  • Large Intestine- back migration

 

If you answer yes to any of these symptoms, you very may get a positive result on the SIBO test. The good news is that this can be addressed through lifestyle, diet and supplementation.
