SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth)
While we work with a number of GI conditions here at Wellness Doctor, SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) and IMO (Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth) are among the top when it comes to our passion and experience for diagnosing, treating and preventing relapse of these often chronic conditions. This is because our very own Nutritional Counselor, Cassie Kremer, has personally struggled with this condition and has undergone countless hours of ongoing education, training and personal experimentation to heal her own SIBO. Having completed the intense SIBO Pro Course with Dr. Allison Siebecker, Cassie is a certified SIBO Pro at treating this common condition.
While many practitioners are able to test and suggest treatment options for SIBO, many fail to understand the importance of symptom tracking, regular check-ins, ongoing testing to assess progress and additional diversified rounds of treatment to fully irradicate the overgrowth. Here at Wellness Doctor, we not only want to rid our patients of the SIBO, but strive to educate the patient in order to prevent relapse. And, with a relapse rate of around 65% we understand that treating SIBO is only half of the battle! In addition to treating the SIBO, patients can expect to receive guidance around relapse prevention which include:
- Dietary changes to prevent or prolong relapse and symptom recurrence
- Additional laboratory testing to assess other areas of health that could be contributing to SIBO
- Nutraceutical intervention to support digestion and healing of the gut
- Exploratory work to attempt to pinpoint the original cause of SIBO (understanding the cause is imperative for preventing relapse)
