SIBO Breath Test

At Boulder Natural Health, we help patients with chronic digestive issues including SIBO and other digestive disorders. We utilize the SIBO Breath Test by Aerodiagnostics and Genova Diagnostics to determine if a patient has SIBO. We make referrals to medical doctors and gastroenterologists if antibiotics are necessary and support patient’s healing from SIBO using diet, lifestyle, herbal, homeopathic and other natural supplementation.

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth is a chronic bacterial infection in the small intestine. Many types of bacteria live in the small intestine normally, however with SIBO, there is an overgrowth of this normal bacteria. Symptoms of SIBO can include:

  • Increase gas in the intestine
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation 
  • Diarrhea
  • Belching
  • Floating stool
  • Undigested food in stood
  • Other IBS symptoms 

SIBO can cause nutrient deficiencies including iron and B12, poor fat absorption, food allergies and food sensitivities, chronic fatigue, body pain, neurological and cognitive symptoms. SIBO is commonly found when a patient experiences the following:

  • Dramatic, temporary improvement in IBS symptoms with antibiotics
  • Worsening of IBS symptoms with ingesting probiotic supplements that contain prebiotics
  • Constipation with increasing fiber consumption in the diet
  • Chronic low ferritin levels with no other cause
