In our effort to include everything you need to know about Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, or SIBO, we have sought out whatever we could find from Dr. Allison Siebecker, who is an acknowledged expert on the subject of your intestines.
Consequently, here is a link to a transcript of Dr. Siebecker’s appearance at The Paleo Summit:
I was thinking about all the people who suffer from digestive troubles. And then they go on the Paleo diet, and they get a lot better. But many people donʼt get complete resolution when they go on Paleo. And Paleo, and low carb diets in general, are really famous for decreasing digestive symptoms, especially the symptoms of IBS. And thatʼs really my area of specialty. But, then other people, they never even had any problems, and then they go on Paleo, and while theyʼre transitioning, they develop some problems like constipation.
So, I thought what I could do is troubleshoot through all the different versions of Paleo diets for the people who are suffering from IBS symptoms because so many people suffer from IBS symptoms. Itʼs really common. And those symptoms are constipation, diarrhea, or maybe both, abdominal bloating, and abdominal pain or discomfort. And there are, of course, many other digestive problems that people on Paleo may still be suffering from. But I just want to focus on those symptoms today.
