Small bowel bacterial overgrowth syndrome

  1. 1. Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth Syndrome Dr. Alexander Rinehart, DC, MS, CCN, CNS http://www.DrAlexRinehart.com
  2. 2. Identifying Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth Syndrome  SBBO or SIBO (Small Intestinal Overgrowth Syndrome) is a relatively common GI disorder  Caused by chronic low stomach acid, immune suppression or parasitic infections  Worsened by chronic constipation, high sugar intake, infant formula feeding, food sensitivities, antibiotic use, antacid use
  3. 3. What is SBBO  More serious version of common GI symptoms and flora imbalances known as “dysbiosis”  Not necessarily a “bug” that you catch and treat  Function condition that can linger for years under the surface  Often presents with irritable bowel syndrome or intestinal yeast (ex. Candida spp.)  Measured with hydrogen breath test  Involves bacteria naturally found in the gut
  4. 4. Treatment of SBBO  New treatment  Inject stomach muscle with botox to slow down gastric emptying  Functional nutrition approach  Takes significant lifestyle commitment  Can take 3-6 months to reverse
  5. 5. Functional Nutrition Approach to SBBO  Identify triggers (food sensitivities/allergies? Frequent Antibiotic usage?)  Check balance of healthy bacteria (Chronic bloating? Reflux? Stomach Pain? Constipation? Loose stools? IBS?)  Soothe and fuel the intestines (L-glutamine, Aloe Leaf, etc)  Identify and Address Co-existing problems (adrenal stress, hidden infections)  Improve GI motility  Relieve Symptoms Naturally using natural supplements/botanicals such as Monolaurin, Oregano Oil, Berberine formulas, Olive Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Extract and more.
  6. 6. Conclusion SBBO is a more serious version of common symptoms many of us experience on a daily basis. Each person has a unique story behind why they have SBBO so there is no set protocol to approach treatment. For most, a functional nutrition approach may work just fine.
