Are you looking for SIBO treatment in Ottawa?

Then you are in the right place.

We have extensive experience in treating SIBO and have helped many clients using a Functional Medicine approach.

The best bit.

Unlike conventional medicine, which looks to suppress symptoms, a Functional Medicine approach seeks to identify and treat the triggers and underlying causes of SIBO.

What are the triggers of SIBO?

Through years of clinical experience, we have identified the principal triggers of SIBO, including:

  • Antibiotics
  • Concussions
  • Food poisoning
  • Glyphosate exposure
  • Infections such as Lyme disease
  • Medications
  • Past emotional and physical trauma
  • Post-surgery abdominal scars
  • Root canals and tooth Infections

Why is identifying triggers necessary?

Triggers, as the term implies, are events that start something.

At the same time, these events, if left unresolved, can allow the condition to continue.

For example, glyphosate exposure can cause can lead to the development of SIBO.

What are the causes of SIBO?

The causes are the mechanisms that provoke symptoms

The main mechanism that leads to the development of SIBO is poor gut motility.

Factors that can cause poor gut motility include:

  • Current chronic stress
  • Chronic infections, such as Lyme disease
  • Untreated Concussions
  • Untreated Post food poisoning abdominal adhesions
  • Glyphosate exposure
  • Unresolved past emotional and physical trauma
  • Untreated post-surgery abdominal scars
  • Root canals and tooth Infections

How do we test for SIBO?

We test a SIBO Lactulose Breath test.

How we treat SIBO?

SIBO Treatment involves a two-pronged approach of treating the unresolved triggers and existing causes, and reducing the bacteria from the small intestine.

We achieve this by using different treatment modalities to help the various issues.

For example, food poisening may be the trigger for the SIBO leading to reduced motility and bacterial overgrowth.

The treatment would involve physical therapy such as Visceral Osteopathy to resolve the adhesions. Plus, a herbal protocol to reverse the bacterial overgrowth.

What other therapy modalities do we use in our SIBO treatment?
