If you have IBS, you probably have Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Scientific studies have shown that up to 84% of people with IBS test positive for SIBO.
SIBO is an overgrowth of bacteria in your small intestine. The small intestine is an area of your digestive tract that should remain a bacteria-free environment. If swamped with bad bugs, your entire digestive tract (not just the small intestine) can become disturbed, from top to bottom. This, in turn, leads to GI inflammation, leaky gut syndrome, and many symptoms such as: Cause #1 - Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
- Bloating – constant, often worse after a meal, and worse towards the end of the day
- Indigestion, belching, nausea, and heartburn
- Abdominal pain and cramping, often worse after a meal
- Constipation and/or diarrhea
- Bowel urgency
- Excessive gas (often with a very bad smell)
- Full body symptoms: fatigue, joint pain, mood disorders, hormonal imbalances, eczema, rosacea, acne
