In this episode, I’m talking with Shivan Sarna, who’s a leading voice in educating others about SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. We’ve captured several episodes about SIBO to show how folks treat it differently. It’s a really common cause of diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating.
Shivan Sarna is the author of Healing SIBO, TV Host, and the creator of the SIBO SOS® Summits and Community, the Digestion SOS® documentary series, the Gut & Microbiome Rescue Summit, the Lymphatic Rescue Summit, the Dental-Health Connection Summit, the Liver and Gallbladder Rescue Summit, and Chronic Condition Research, a 501(c) 3 non-profit to further research under-funded medical conditions.
After a lifetime of struggling with health issues, Shivan made it her mission to demystify her own health struggles – and to share that information with others who were struggling. Her special skill is finding and connecting with the leading expert doctors and connecting those experts with the people who need their help. Her personal mantra is SOS: Save Our Selves, and that’s what she has helped thousands of people do!
On this episode, Shivan shares her personal SIBO story and talks about the different options for treating SIBO, from herbal approaches to a more integrative approach with antibiotics that only target the small intestine. She’s tried all of them and will share what worked for her and all she’s learned since becoming a SIBO educator.
In my conversation with Shivan, you’ll hear…
- The number-one underlying cause of SIBO
- Some of the odd symptoms that may be connected to SIBO
- The one type of test that accurately identifies SIBO
- What to eat if you have SIBO
- The various ways to treat SIBO
- How to help your migrating motor complex to prevent SIBO or relapses
