Do you have SIBO. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth

Have you ever eaten something and within a few hours realised that your stomach is so bloated that you can’t button your trousers? Or perhaps you are one of those “gassy” folk, and wonder why your digestion is always somewhat dodgy (or embarrassing).
It’s not uncommon for my clients to tell me that they wake up with a flat belly and by the end of the day they look six months pregnant.
Then it wouldn’t surprise you to learn that gas production in those with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is about 100 x higher than in people without it.

Even if you haven’t experienced abdominal swelling to such an extreme, any amount of bloating is not normal; it’s actually a sign of intestinal dysfunction. If you’re having gas and/or bloating regularly, you could have food sensitivities and/or a gut infection, such as SIBO.  Or you might have an inability to digest to either fructose or glucose, resulting in very similar symptoms.
