Symptoms of Digestive Issues
Disrupted digestion can be both the result of, and cause of, problematic symptoms throughout the body.

We’ll help you identify which of your symptoms might be related to your gut health and work with you on a plan to relieve them.
Many people have benefits to help cover the cost of treatment in support of digestion, so don’t hesitate to reach out for an assessment and support.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, or SIBO, is exactly as the name describes. SIBO presents with excessive bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation, nausea, and nutrient deficiencies that can cause fatigue.
SIBO How We Can Help
In cases of SIBO, we prioritize elimination of the overgrowth, restoring proper balance to the gut microbiome, identifying the cause (ie. poor small intestine motility, medication use, chronic disease, history of GI infection), providing therapeutic diet options.
SIBO is diagnosed using a SIBO breath test. This involves drinking a lactulose or glucose based liquid, and collecting samples of your breath to test for hydrogen and methane gases. These gases are produced by gut bacteria as they ferment the carbohydrates and give us details into the population density of bacteria in your gut.
