SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) can be quite disabling. For some, it’s a lonely life of isolation, often being bed-ridden or unable to leave the house, never able to share meals out with family or friends, and usually accompanied by multiple health issues. Here is the story of one patient’s journey and transformation from SIBO and chronic fatigue to an abundance of energy, resolution of gut issues and weight loss to top it all off.
This article appeared in the July 2016 edition of First for Women magazine. Although some of the information about SIBO and supplements are a little off, the message of her recovery and transformation are quite encouraging.
For her SIBO, we started her on a SIBO-friendly diet. We introduced the following supplements:
GI Synergy (herbal antimicrobial) and EnzymixPro (digestive enzyme + HCl) by Apex Energetics along with Cholacol (gall bladder support) by Standard Process. We then phased her off GI Synergy and added in Glutagenics by Metagenics to support gut repair and healing. Our final step, that happened after the interview for this article, was to support her overall microbiome using MegaSporeBiotic. She is doing fantastic, eating a wide variety of foods, and reports feeling “absolutely wonderful!”
