What is SIBO? Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a complex and often misunderstood condition that can lead to a myriad of symptoms, ranging from digestive issues to systemic complaints. At Axon Integrative Health, we recognize the challenges that individuals face when dealing with SIBO, and our comprehensive approach is designed to address the root causes while providing effective and personalized treatment solutions.

SIBO occurs when there is an abnormal increase in the number and/or type of bacteria in the small intestine. This overgrowth can disrupt the normal digestive processes, leading to symptoms such as bloating, gas, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Several factors contribute to the development of SIBO, including:

  • Impaired Motility: Conditions that affect the normal movement of the digestive tract, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or intestinal adhesions, can contribute to SIBO.
  • Anatomical Abnormalities: Structural issues, such as strictures or diverticula, may create pockets where bacteria can accumulate in the small intestine.
  • Immune System Dysfunction: A compromised immune system may be unable to keep bacterial overgrowth in check, allowing for unchecked colonization.
  • Low Stomach Acid: Insufficient stomach acid can create an environment conducive to bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
  • Impaired Pancreatic Enzyme Production: Inadequate production of digestive enzymes can hinder the proper breakdown of food, providing an opportunity for bacteria to thrive.
