    Hi everyone, I've been dealing with SIBO for a number of years and I will be trying the elemental diet (ED) in an attempt to starve the bacterial overgrowth. I will be using the home-made Vivonex version of the ED (see page 2 Vivonex Plus version)...

    Hi, I'm writing this for anyone who currently has SIBO. As most cases of IBS are actually SIBO (or possibly SIFO), just note that it is absolutely possible to treat and heal from this disease. I took several large courses of Rifaxamin and herbal antibiotics (following the treatment protocol on...

    Hi, After taking several large and long courses of Rifaximin and herbal antibiotics (like oregano oil etc.) in 2015, my SIBO (which was slowly killing me) was gone. I haven't had any symptoms of SIBO since the last course. That's the good news. My gut health is overall very strong now, and I...

    good afternoon, I have recently found out that I have sibo that most likely developed after scar tissue which formed from previous surgeries-it has been suggested to me to have a special type of massage called 'visceral manipulation' which looks for adhesions or other anatomical changes. I am...
  8. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
    So I tested positive for sibo and tried the antibiotic route but had to stop halfway through the course. I was having bad abdominal side pains and my bloating was lasting longer. I figured it was die off symptoms but my side pain was too much to want to take anything for a few days. I wanted to...

I think CBT will help me massively as...
  10. General Discussion
    I've been dealing with SIBO for the past year and a half, and the only solution my GI continues to offer is antibiotics (despite several previous rounds). If anyone has recommendations for a great GI or functional doctor in New York City who treats SIBO and its underlying causes, I'd be so...
  11. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
    I have been battling GERD for years. After being on a PPI for quite a while, my symptoms worsened, then was diagnosed with IBS-C and SIBO, being hydrogen positive and fructose intolerant.

  14. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hello everyone, I have chronic constipation along with SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). My doctor prescribed me antibiotics to help with the bacterial infection, but I'm worried it will irritate my gut flora even more. Is it worth it? I would appreciate any advice. Thanks so much...

    Hi all, I've finally got a doctor to prescribe me the Dr. Pimentel recommended dosage of 550mg of Rifaximin three times a day for 14 days... except I'm not able to source 550mg tablets in my current location. My doctor has said he's willing to adjust the dose to 600mg per day so that I can use...

    I had SIBO a few years ago, and it almost killed me. I had to take a lot of antibiotics (both pharmaceutical and herbal at the same time) to start the long road of recovery. I believe many people with IBS, SIBO, and other gut disorders actually have (as the *root* cause) some form of dysbiosis...

    Hi folks, I've been on a journey with my IBS related health issues for the past 2 years (and probably longer though I survived that period). Some time back I thought it was simple old Lactose intolerance, then I went low FODMAP. The initial results from any new diet are great but the good...
