SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) treatment Los Angeles

Many people suffer from gut problems, and they can lead to serious health issues when left untreated.

SIBO poses a significant risk to one's health and should not be left untreated. Attention to this issue is vital in order to prevent further deterioration.

What is SIBO?

SIBO is often due to an overgrowth of bacteria in the gut.

In each of us there are trillions of bacteria that live in our gut and are essential to the proper functioning of the body. Some bacteria are beneficial, while others can sometimes cause harmful health issues. It is possible for an overgrowth of bad bacteria to occur when certain underlying issues lead to this outcome. This overgrowth of bad bacteria leads to the condition of SIBO.

SIBO is an overgrowth of the bad bacteria that mostly occurs in the small intestine.

What causes SIBO?

With trillions of bacteria in your gut, balancing out the good and bad bacteria is important for optimal health. With changing lifestyles & diets, there are a lot of external factors that can disrupt this balance.

Getting your doctor to understand what has caused your SIBO problem can help them come up with the best treatment plan for you.

There are many reasons for gut microbe imbalance, such as -

  • Bad food choices
  • Physical trauma
  • Certain medications
  • Infections like EBV
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Parasites
  • Toxins in your environment

How to Diagnose SIBO?

Currently, the most accurate way to screen for SIBO is a rather invasive procedure where a doctor needs to collect samples of your intestine and identify whether or not you have SIBO.

But now, more advanced tests such as the Hydrogen and Methane Breath Test (HBT) can be performed to confirm if you have SIBO.The glucose and lactose tests can help diagnose SIBO.



How do You treat SIBO?

Conventional medicine often uses antibiotics which only temporarily fix SIBO symptoms. However, on the other side, antibiotics cause gut Microbe imbalance which can lead to plenty of problems.

The comprehensive plan of treating SIBO, Functional Medicine Doctors specializes in.

In order to successfully treat SIBO, it is important to have a well-planned protocol. The 3-step comprehensive protocol will help you clear the SIBO from the gut and remove toxins from the body which leads to a normalized digestive system. The 3 step treatment plan includes -

  • Focus on your gut health to boost your immunity. By reducing inflammation, you can lessen the chance of unwanted illness coming into your life.
  • We wants to get rid of the overgrown bad bacteria, which means you can maintain a healthy digestive system. But it is important to do this in gradual fashion otherwise there is high chance of recurrence of SIBO.
  • Restoring your gut balance with good bacteria is important for your overall well-being.

In this protocol I do not use harsh antibiotics with the side-effects they often produce instead I utilize natural herbal antibiotics which are equally as effective. Studies show that natural oral antibiotics can provide long-lasting symptom improvement for SIBO sufferers.

It's important to pinpoint the underlying trigger for your SIBO and there could be a number of reasons for this. Many doctors skip this critical step but it’s very important.Through various testing methods we are able to identify the underlying root cause of your SIBO  and we help you to reverse it.

Get rid of SIBO permanently by restoring healthy microbiome balance in your gut. Without that, you're likely to get SIBO back sooner or later.  I have seen several patients who came back to see me because their symptoms returned after being treated with regular antibiotics. It looks like the problem was never fully corrected and that is why they needed help again.
