Unlocking Relief: Common Naturopathic SIBO Treatments

Updated: Feb 28

Understanding SIBO: A Closer Look


Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, otherwise known as SIBO, is a gastrointestinal disorder that arises due to an excessive buildup of bacteria in the small intestine. This overgrowth disrupts the natural balance of gut flora, causing a myriad of discomforting symptoms. At Pacific Clinic of Natural Medicine, our mission is to unravel the complexities of SIBO and provide effective, natural solutions for lasting relief.


Identifying SIBO Symptoms


Recognizing SIBO's symptoms is crucial for early intervention and treatment. Individuals with SIBO commonly experience bloating, gas, abdominal pain or discomfort, irregular bowel movements (diarrhea or constipation), and potential nutrient deficiencies due to impaired absorption.


Unveiling Naturopathic SIBO Treatments


Our approach to SIBO treatments is rooted in naturopathic principles, focusing on addressing the root cause while alleviating symptoms. Here are some possible naturopathic treatment approaches to help those experiencing SIBO: 


Dietary Modifications & The Power of Nutrition


Diet plays a pivotal role in managing SIBO symptoms. Our naturopathic physicians and nutritionists at PCNM are capable of crafting personalized meal plans that can help to minimize symptoms. Our expert providers take the time to understand your experiences and SIBO symptoms and use a variety of methods to find the right diet for your specific circumstances. Sometimes, SIBO can be the result of food intolerances and we can work to help you identify the best way to determine those intolerances.

Harnessing Nature’s Remedies Through Herbal Therapies


Herbal remedies offer promising results in combating SIBO. The potency of natural antimicrobial herbs such as oregano oil, berberine, and garlic extracts are examples of these herbal remedies. These herbs possess antibacterial properties, aiding in rebalancing gut flora and inhibiting bacterial overgrowth. Our naturopathic physicians are able to customize herbal protocols to suit individual needs, ensuring safe and effective treatment.


Restoring Balance: Probiotics and Gut Health


Restoring a healthy balance of gut bacteria is essential in managing SIBO. Our naturopathic providers can help by offering specific probiotics designed to support gut health and restore microbial equilibrium. These probiotics contribute to regulating the bacterial ecosystem within the intestines, promoting a balanced environment conducive to healing.


A Holistic Approach to Wellness Through Lifestyle Adjustments


Beyond targeted treatments, our naturopathic physicians might advocate holistic lifestyle adjustments to support overall well-being. Stress management techniques, tailored exercise routines, and prioritizing adequate sleep are integral parts of such an approach. These adjustments synergistically complement SIBO treatments, fostering an environment conducive to healing and long-term health.

Your Well-Being in Mind, Always


At Pacific Clinic of Natural Medicine, our team of experienced providers work collaboratively with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. There are various evaluations we can use including: 


  • Identifying dietary allergies, sensitivities, intolerances to remove inflammatory foods that are affecting the microbiome and digestive function.

  • Conducting breath tests to identify which bacterial strains are overgrown so we can target antimicrobial treatment.  

  • Conducting a comprehensive stool and digestive analysis to target better food breakdown where needed and test for parasites, worms and yeast that could be contributing or even causing digestive distress. 

We understand the multifaceted nature of SIBO and aim to empower you with effective, natural solutions tailored to your unique needs.
