In this video you will learn how to address
a bacterial overgrowth
issue in the small intestines.

In this video we are talking about Small Intestine
Bacterial Overgrowth, also known as SIBO.
Now, this is a problem for a lot of people.
I’ve worked with many people who have had
this issue.
But I have also had this issue myself, so
I can give you some real clear advice as to
how I went about reversing it.
This problem can be very difficult to reverse
in many cases, but let’s go ahead and talk
about some of the different symptoms that
arise with SIBO.
Let’s go ahead and talk about the things
that really cause SIBO.
And then what you need to do in order to reverse
this issue.
Now, when we look at the small intestine let’s
do a quick little run through.
Basically the small intestine is responsible
for taking food and absorbing the nutrients
for your body.
So it is broken down, it goes into the small
intestine, that’s where it is absorbing
the nutrients.
Then, after it goes into the small intestine
it goes to the large intestine.
And in the large intestine the food is going
to be broken down into waste so it can then
exit the body.
Now, the small intestine should have very
little bacteria in it whereas the large intestine
should have a lot.
What happens in people who have Small Intestine
Bacterial Overgrowth is essentially that they
get a lot of bacteria that goes into that
small intestine and it causes a lot of symptoms.
Let’s go ahead and discuss them.
The first one is bloating and distention.
This is a very common symptom.
People wake up in the morning and their stomach
feels huge.
They eat a meal and their stomach feels huge.
It causes a lot of discomfort.
The reason for this and what is happening
is that these different fibers and starches
and sugars are going into the small intestine
and they are fermenting which causes a lot
of gas.
So we have to make sure that we are watching
fibers, starches, and sugars and also supplementation.
That’s another place where many people go
wrong is with supplementation.
They find out that they have some small intestine
bacteria issues and they jump into supplementation
that actually is having a negative effect
on them.
So we’ve got to be careful with that.
We’ll talk more about that in a minute.
The next is constipation and diarrhea.
Someone can have constipation or diarrhea
or actually alter between both.
So that’s important to know as well.
Next is nutrient deficiencies or nutrient
deficits.
When we look at this issue what essentially
happens is that all that bacteria in the small
intestine is going and taking those nutrients
and keeping them from you.
So though you may be consuming some different
vitamins and you may be consuming a healthy
diet, the bacteria is getting those nutrients
and your body is not.
So your body can really be starving in this
case.
The next one is antacids.
When people make chronic use of antacids – let’s
say they get heartburn all the time and they
are taking these antacids on a regular basis
– I mean, I’ve heard of people taking them
after every single meal.
What you do is you alter the pH in the intestines
and in the stomach, and as a result of that
you create a very bad bacterial environment.
Now, the pH in the stomach is responsible
for keeping certain bacteria at bay and keeping
it out of certain places.
If you alter that, then essentially what will
happen is you can have the Small Intestine
Bacterial Overgrowth issue.
So antacids are a big problem there.
Then, also an existing gut condition.
If you’re someone who has leaky gut, if
you have Celiac, if you have Crohn’s, if
you have any of these existing gut conditions
it can really be a way of opening the door
for this bacterial overgrowth issue.
So when we look at these different symptoms
here, these are good signs that you are someone
who has Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth.
Now, some of the ways that you can also determine
if you have it is you can do a stool analysis
and then you can also do a breath test that
will go and give some good data as to whether
or not you have some of these issues going
on.
But to kind of give yourself a good starting
point this is a really good way to go, just
looking at some of these different symptoms
and seeing if you have them, because if you
can look at all of these and go, “Yep, that’s
me, that’s me, that’s me,” then there
is probably a good chance that you have this
SIBO issue.
Now, Step Two is looking at why it happens.
So there are a couple of things we have to
consider.
First of all, a depressed immune system.
So your immune system is just not functioning
well.
The next is chronic stress.
Essentially, if you have chronic stress it
is going to change and alter the way that
your intestine is functioning.
So chronic stress is never a good thing.
That’s why people who have chronic stress
get ulcers and all kinds of other issues.
It can alter the pH.
Here we have someone who has depressed gastric
acid.
It alters the pH and essentially you are opening
the door for this bacteria to be in places
it shouldn’t be.
So that is something that we relate to the
antacids and so on and so forth.
The other thing is irregular peristalsis.
Someone who is eating a lot and then is sitting
at a desk chair all day, someone who is eating
a lot before bed.
Essentially what is going to happen is this
causes an irregular peristalsis.
So movement of the body is very important
for digestion and peristalsis.
So when we look at this issue it also can
cause a Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth.
So these are some of the different reasons
it can happen, some of the different reasons
behind it.
But also we can look at poor diet and a few
other things as well.
Now the next step is going to be how do you
actually go in and solve this issue?
So this is an interesting one because there
is a lot of different content out there, blogs
and so on and so forth, that talk about this
issue.
And like I said, from my personal experience,
myself having it and my working with people
and reversing it with them, there is just
no way that most of this information that
you’re going to find online will even come
close to fixing this issue.
What we need to look at first of all is food.
You need to avoid certain foods – starches,
sugars, legumes.
Many foods that actually are very good for
you, you need to avoid during this time.
Simply because you need to really avoid foods
that are going to feed that bacteria.
On the other hand, you need to make sure that
you are eating certain foods.
The reason for this is simply that what our
goal is here is to actually starve down that
bacteria but also make sure that we’re feeding
the body.
Because once again, people who have this Small
Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth issue – essentially
what happens is that you’re going in and
you’re feeding this bacteria but you’re
not feeding yourself.
You’re not feeding your body.
So we need to make sure that you are getting
the proper nutrients but we are actually taking
away the nutrients that the bacteria needs
to thrive.
What I’m going to do is in the description
below I will post a link to a chart that has
the foods that you need to avoid and the foods
that you can consume.
There are a lot of them.
I will put them down below so that we don’t
spend 20 minutes going over them right now.
So that will be in the description.
The next thing is the power of doing some
intermittent fasting.
Actually abstaining from food for a period
of time can really help to kind of reset that
gut and can help kill down some of that bacteria
as well.
Then last is supplementation.
Now a lot of people will talk about using
fasting alone or using diet alone.
I can tell you that I have never seen anybody
do it.
As a matter of fact it can be very, very hard
to complete with just some of these different
strategies that we just talked about.
So supplementation is important, and there
are a couple of things specifically that you
need to really focus on doing.
First of all, healing the gut lining.
Working on that gut lining which is probably
inflamed and having a lot going on it.
A lot of times leaky gut is associated.
So anyway, healing that gut lining is very
important.
The next thing when it comes to supplementation
is making sure that you are actually clearing
out some of those different gut bacteria.
We want to make sure we are clearing out that
bacteria so we can remove it from our small
intestine and have everything start functioning
right.
It’s not just about putting good bacteria
in but a lot of times it’s about taking
that bacteria out.
We will actually use a microbial cleanse to
just cleanse that bacteria out of the gastrointestinal
tract with a natural remedy that does it safely.
Then, when we look at supplementation such
as probiotic this is important, too.
Because most people will tell you to stay
away from probiotic.
What they are failing to understand is that
when it comes to the probiotic, the reason
that most people have a negative reaction
to a probiotic when they have SIBO is simply
because of this.
Because most probiotics contain a prebiotic.
What that means is that not only are you getting
a probiotic but you are getting food for that
probiotic, which in normal cases is very good.
However, if you have SIBO it’s not good
because that prebiotic is not only going to
feed that bacteria that you’re taking but
it’s also going to feed all the bacteria
in the gut and it’s going to cause you to
become bloated and have a lot of issues from
it.
So we need to make sure that we have the good
strains of bacteria in there, but we need
to make sure that we’re not feeding the
bad stuff.
So it’s important to take a probiotic, but
one that does not contain a prebiotic.
The other thing is that it is very important
to make sure you are getting good nutrients.
We already talked about nutrient deficits
being a very common problem as a result of
people who are suffering from SIBO, especially
the fat soluble nutrients – the A, D, E, and
K are also very important during this time.
Making sure you are taking proper enzymes
is important too.
Essentially when we look at this, what we’re
doing is we’re looking to reset that whole
environment in the gastrointestinal tract.
We’re looking to reset some of that acidity
with apple cider vinegar capsules as well.
So we’re looking to just cause a whole reset
in there, clean out some of that bacteria,
and create an environment that is actually
sustainable for your gut.
Because people who have Small Intestinal Bacterial
Overgrowth over time start to develop a lot
more issues.
So it’s very important that you actually
go in and solve this problem.
So all the resources for this video, the foods
and the supplementation that I use, it will
all be in the description below.
Once again, this problem can be very difficult
to reverse.
Even if you’re doing everything right it
can take several months to reverse.
So take that all into consideration, give
this video a thumbs up, share it with your
friends who may be suffering from the same
issue.
