EPISODE 239: Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

Have you heard of fecal transplants? This is when the fecal matter from someone with healthy gut bacteria is transferred to the gut of someone with gut dysbiosis—and it works. While this sounds extreme, in today’s digestive health landscape, this is a real option some people need to consider when they are suffering from Small Bacterial Intestinal Overgrowth (SIBO).

On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, we’ll discuss why digestive disorders are so common, and how the remedies can be counter-intuitive such as reducing fiber, lactose, and even fruit.

Listen in to learn:

  • Why fecal transplants might save your gut
  • Why you should limit fiber, fructose, lactose, resistant starch and most sugar alcohols
  • How erythritol could be the most gut-friendly sugar alcohol
  • How the 3lbs of gut bacteria in our gut can be your friends or foe
  • How low fiber or “elemental diet” could improve bacterial overgrowth
