Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or SIBO is a condition where abnormally large numbers of bacteria (at least 100,000 bacteria per milliliter (ml) of fluid) are present in the small intestine.

SIBO is the most common cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and is associated with many other health conditions like:

  • Diabetes ( Disease where the body can’t regulate the amount of sugar in the blood)

  • Scleroderma (Autoimmune disorder that affect the skin and internal organs),

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’S Disease & Ulcerative Colitis)

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are non-specific, chronic inflammatory diseases of the gastro intestinal tract. (GIT). Inflammation may affect any part of the GIT from the mouth to the anus. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the most common inflammatory bowel disorders.

Crohn’s disease is chronic inflammation involving all layers of the intestinal wall and any part of the gastrointestinal tract. The disease often presents with a pattern of intermittent remittance and relapses. Nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption are common and developmental retardation may result in those who develop this disorder during childhood.

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic, nonspecific inflammatory bowel disease involving the mucosa and submucosa of the colon. It usually includes the rectum and is characterised by uniform and continuous ulceration, bloody diarrhoea and rectal bleeding. Recurrent inflammation may eventually lead to shortening of the colon, and with long-standing UC, the surface epithelium may show dysplastic changes. Like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis often presents with a pattern of intermittent remittance and relapses

At ANHC, Dr. Mariem, ND can use naturopathic medicine to help relieve the symptoms of IBD through dietary advice as well as the use of herbal medicine, Homeopathy and nutritional supplements.
