Introduction - SIBO sub-types hydrogen, methane, hydrogen sulfide, symptoms & signs, prognosis and treatment overview.

Etiology - What goes wrong in the body to allow SIBO to occur (such as deficient migrating motor complex and anatomic abnormalities), and the many risk factors that lead to SIBO and why.

Pathophysiology - Understand how SIBO creates symptoms through bacterial gas fermentation, carbohydrate malabsorption, endotoxins and more.

Diagnosis - Learn keynotes to recognize SIBO in the clinic, if it's SIBO or something else, how to interpret SIBO breath tests (with lots of examples), how to use tests to inform your treatment, and why testing and retesting is important.

Symptom Relief  & 1st and 2nd line Treatment - What to try before antibacterials plus OTC and Rx treatments for SIBO symptoms.


Dietary Treatment - Learn how to use diet as a 1st line therapy; for symptomatic relief; to support antibacterial treatments; for prevention of relapse; and for chronic SIBO management.

Antibacterial Treatment - Learn how to use the three antibacterial approaches to eradicate bacterial overgrowth: pharmaceutical antibiotics, herbal antibiotics, and elemental diet, as well as specific treatments for hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide type SIBO, and what to expect.

Preventing Relapse & Summary - Learn various approaches for preventing relapse, including meal spacing, bodywork, diet, pharmaceutical and herbal prokinetics, plus Dr. Siebecker's 12 Key SIBO Success Points, comprehensive treatment charts, and case examples.
