Posted by in Articles, SIBO

Before I was officially diagnosed with SIBO (small intestine bacteria overgrowth), I thoroughly researched all of the most recent information about how to treat it.

Together, my very knowledgable doctor and I decided on a treatment plan based on the latest research, but as I strictly followed the “correct” course of action, my case of SIBO only got worse!

A Happy Holiday Menu for an Extremely Restricted Diet

Posted by in Desserts, Recipes, SIBO, Side Dishes

I appreciated the fact that I could still have such a yummy Thanksgiving, but I remember looking ahead to Thanksgiving 2015 anticipating I’d be…read more
