Do you suffer from gas, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain and other digestive symptoms?

Between the daily stressors of today’s fast-paced world and food choices that don’t always do a body good, digestive issues are a common complaint among the U.S. population.

But sometimes the cause isn’t just what you had for dinner last night. Some digestive issues are a sign of underlying issues that can be treated successfully with natural medicine.

One diagnosis that has been seeing a rise in numbers is small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a treatable condition that is linked to symptoms beyond those listed above, including:

  • Constipation
  • Flatulence
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dyspepsia
  • Malabsorption
  • Weight loss
  • Malnutrition
  • Anemia
