Do you suffer from bloating, protruding stomach, irregular bowels, excessive fatigue, brain fog and/or weight gain⁉️You may have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) • What is SIBO? Simply put, it’s excessive bacteria in the small bowel 🦠 • Why is it harmful? The small bowel should have low #s
of bacteria so it can do what it does best: absorb nutrition. Excess bacteria feed off your food to produce gas, toxins & prevent nutrient absorption 💨 This leads to bloating, abdominal fullness, looking pregnant, diarrhea or constipation & even non-GI issues like brain fog, fatigue & weight gain 😳 In fact, many diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) actually have SIBO😮 • How to diagnose SIBO? A simple, non-invasive breath test can help diagnose it 📝 • How to treat SIBO: a short course of meds & diet modifications can help reduce or eradicate the bacteria & alleviate symptoms ✅ To learn more or get tested, make an appointment at our clinic or visit your local GI doc 👨🏻⚕️ Info in bio 📞

I had dreams of how beautiful early retirement would be. Plenty of travels, being free to do what I wanted to do, complete freedom!
Things did not turn out that way...well not exactly.
My son got ill, and while training for a marathon I became injured. .
I had one of those game-changing, eye-opening, reality checks. My health was not what I wanted it to be, and my sons struggle weighed heavy on my mind. .
I discovered Amare®, and my gut was screaming at me to jump in with both feet. .
I quickly regained my footing with my health, my resilience to the heavy stress I was under improved greatly, and remains solid, and as my luck would have it......I am still at the level of complete freedom with the ability to travel...now I just have the best gift of all, that of complete health. .
Health is wealth. .

Great testimonial from my client ”I have gone from getting out of bed every day like an old women due to the menopause in my 40’s, needing a knee op feeling sluggish huge hair loss daily, always tired and going into the over weight category.
To feeling alert, no aches or pains cancelling my knee op. Virtually no hair loss and losing so far a stone in weight on the 21 day programme.
Need I say more but I have a new lease of life and feel fantastic which something I never thought I would again!!!
This is just the beginning... “

How is it treated?
1) Antibiotics --- The most well-known antibiotic for SIBO is rifaximin. This antibiotic does not spread into your bloodstream and is very effective at eliminating the bacteria that cause SIBO. It has been shown to improve symptoms in 92% of patients and eradicate SIBO in up to 80% of patients. However, successful treatment with this antibiotic can be short lived due to the high risk of relapse roughly nine months after finishing treatment.
2) Antimicrobials – In an interesting study at a gastroenterology practice, patients with SIBO were given either rifaximin or one of two herbal treatments for four weeks. The herbal treatments were either: Dysbiocide and FC Cidal or Candibactin-AR and Candibactin-BR. The study showed that of the patients that received rifaximin, 34% had a negative lactulose test afterwards. HOWEVER, out of those that received the herbal treatments, this number rose to 46%! This suggests that herbal therapy may be as effective or MORE effective than antibiotic therapy. Also I can confirm the effectiveness of antimicrobials as this is what I used for my SIBO. -----------------------------------
3) Diet – The elemental diet has been shown to be highly effective in reducing SIBO. In a 2004 study, patients with SIBO were subjected to a 14-day elemental diet. This diet involved drinking a powdered beverage from Vivonex Plus for 14 days with the aim of starving the bacteria. On day 15, 80% of the patients had a normal lactulose breath test which demonstrates that severe dietary means of treatment can be an option to consider. ----------------------------------
It is important to note that treatment for SIBO is complex and must be individualized in order to ensure the best outcome. Often, it comes down to addressing the source of the problem in the first place and I would really recommend working with a healthcare provider and getting some testing done to figure out where to start 😊#guthealth #microbiome #sibo #sibotreatment #sibohelp #digestion #ibs
Your gut is an amazing thing. It’s full of micro-organisms including bacteria, fungi and viruses, but only 10% to 20% will ever be shared with anyone else. Your microbiome affects everything from your general health to your mood and behaviour, but there’s also a lot we don’t yet know about it.

Snacking can be hard to put to the back of our minds. We do it because we're hungry but it's not meal time, we're bored, tempted by sugary "energy giving" contents (not all cases), to pass the time, to procrastinate and more. Snacking has always had a poor light because those that fall into the snacking category do not tend to be healthy (as much as they may appear to be). This is one of the reasons we have our flapjacks. If you're going to snack, we want to make sure it's possible to do in a healthy way! So many people don't get enough fibre in their diets, which is why each one of the 30g bars is classified as high in fibre! Thus not only do they help with improving our gut health, they help you feel fuller too thanks to the award winning SlimBiome found within. They're also only between 102 to 118 calories (depending on flavour).
So what's it going to be... Cacao Orange, Nutty Peanut or Cranberry Coconut? :) #flapjack #healthy #guthealth #microbiome #snack #snacking #snackbar #snacktime

----- This is the M Clinic in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Dr. Zach Bush has a completely different paradigm on health (centered on the microbiome) that speaks to me like no other doctor or practitioner.
He's decades ahead of the rest and he's disruptive in the most positive way.
What's noteworthy for me is how he and his team illustrate the power of defining the problem differently. Of challenging norms and convectional thinking.
It takes courage and a willingness to be different - but so worth it if you want to truly serve others in a meaningful way. -----

*Read on for personal opinion mixed with cold unbiased evidence-based facts*
Lots of patients over the years have asked me about supplementing probiotics for gut health...even my Dad is partial to the odd probiotic drink or yoghurt.
Is there any convincing evidence that probiotics positively effect gastrointestinal disorders? No. Why? Well...
1. Bacteria from a probiotic supplement might not actually succeed in colonizing the human intestinal tract.
2. Studies have concluded that in some patients, probiotic strains could be identified in samples obtained from some study participants, but in others, those probiotic strains were undetectable.
3. Several studies looking at the fecal microbiome in patients that had received antibiotics showed a delayed recovery in normal gut flora of over 5 months to reach pre antibiotic state levels (usually takes a healthy individual 21 days without any intervention to regenerate their usual gut microbiome)
4. We don’t know the long term consequences of Probiotics.
5. Probiotics should be used with caution in patients with chronic disease, are immunocompromised, or are otherwise vulnerable (such as elderly patients).
6. More Research Needed Before Usefulness Of Probiotics Proven
Faecal microbiome research is a developing area and is exciting. It is a crucially important area of study and is key to discovering the underlying pathophysiology to many conditions.
But right now as of 22nd January 2019 we have limited information and cannot determine which probiotic preparations/strains of bacteria may be helpful, which patients should be targeted, and how.
But if you like the taste of probiotic drinks and yoghurts and it makes you feel good, who can discount the placebo effect and the mental good it can potentially offer!
I’m sticking with my Rolo toffee yoghurt for now...
As you may of noticed from my stories, I have been testing out some of the recipes from the Clever Guts Recipe Book this week.
I can honestly say this is now my favourite cook book- I absolutely love it & highly recommend it!
Not only are the recipes in this book nourishing for the whole body (not least the gut!), but they taste insanely good. So good, that after having the cauliflower and paneer curry for dinner, I RAN HOME from work last night for a second (snack sized 😜) helping! 😂
Pictured is the delicious beetroot & celeriac soup I made in batch for lunches this week, topped with toasted cashews and coconut yogurt. This was so warming and filling, perfect for the colder weather.
Slightly off topic, but did you know...around 14% of the population get pink wee (beeturia) from eating beetroot?
I am not one of those 14% I have to say, but I have spoken to others who have completely freaked out having not made the link between eating beetroot and producing pink urine. 😬
Have you experienced panic after eating beetroot? Share your stories! .

I literally cannot get enough of my fermented turnips as a topping for everything from salads, to eggs, to soups. They smell terrifying when you crack the jar, but the flavor is all delicious spicy sour crunch without any of the weird earthy turnipy stuff.
To make, use a mandolin or sharp knife to chop a bunch of turnips into matchsticks. Salt and let drain for a few hours, rinse, and toss with a few cloves of minced garlic and a teaspoon of red pepper flakes (or more, you spicy thing). Then pack into a glass jar and just barely cover with brine. (I think I use about a tablespoon per quart of water, but you should fact check me on that). Weight the turnips down with a smaller jar filled with water and let sit at room temperature for 3 to 5 days. You should see light bubbles when they're ready and you will definitely, definitely be able to smell them!
If you don't love them, please send them my way 😘

Post 4 - Bactérias do BEM
👩🏼🏫Olá pessoal, no último post dessa série comentei que sermos colonizados por esses microorganismos tem sim vários benefícios e vou resumir o principal deles, ok?
💩O principal benefício para o hospedeiro (no caso, nós seres humanos) é a recuperação de energia. EXATO!!! A nossa alimentação, desde que saudável, obviamente, rica em fibra alimentar (carboidrato não digerível) e outros nutrientes compostos fenólicos, sofrerá um processo de fermentação, principalmente pelas bactérias (como Bifidobactérias) e isso é BOM! Na verdade ideal, pois gera subprodutos para o nosso metabolismo que tem um efeito positivo na nossa saúde e prevenção de doenças. Os produtos desta fermentação, são os ácidos graxos de cadeia curta e peptídeos antimicrobianos que serão absorvidos e servem para inibir o crescimento de microrganismos patogênicos.
💩Os mais importantes ácidos graxos são butiratos, metabolizados pelo epitélio do cólon; propionatos pelo fígado; e acetatos do tecido muscular. As bactérias intestinais, também desempenham um papel na síntese de vitamina B e da vitamina K, bem como ácidos biliares, que metabolizam esteróis e xenobióticos.
💩As relações que a microbiota intestinal exercem sobre os diversos sistemas do organismo refletem também na manutenção do metabolismo. A microbiota afeta tanto a aquisição de nutrientes quanto a regulação da energia adquirida.
É isso gente...fiquem de olho nos próximos posts! 🤓

Overall the key to gut health is to get a wide array of different types of fiber from a variety of plant sources. All in all its paramount for hosting a diverse microbiome which Is a hallmark for optimal physical and mental health. *Cellulose-primary component of plant cell walls
passes through gastointestinal tract relatively intact binding to other food components *Inulin-slows digestion, takes longer for body to absorb sugars from foods you eat preventing blood sugar spikes
inulin is a fructan: very fermentable-some people may experience gastrointestinal distress
chicory root, garlic, bananas, onions, and asparagus *Pectins: soluble fiber that helps reduce glycemic response of foods stalling glucose absorption
well metabolized by gut bacteria, helps lower cholesterol, and flushes fatty acids out of body
strawberries, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, apples, and potatoes *Beta-glucans-gel forming soluble fiber fermented by gut bacteria producing short chain fatty acids
oats, barley, shitake mushrooms and reishi mushrooms *Psyllium: helps relieve constipation by softening stool, forms a handy gel that binds to suagrs and helps prevent reabsorption of cholesterol in digestive tract. comes from out husk of psyllium plant's seeds
only found as a supplement or some added in high fiber cereals *Lignin-like cellulose part of cell wall of plant structure insoluble fiber
help prevent colon cancer(hurries things along in intestinal tract limiting time carcinogens have to interact with tissues.)
legumes, beans, peas, avacodes, unripe bananas, cauliflower, zucchini, nuts and flaxseed

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects 10% to 15% of the general population and lacks a single unifying pathophysiology and disease-defining biomarker. It is characterized by recurrent abdominal pain related to defecation or in association with change in stool frequency or form. Patients also commonly feel bloating. The overall prevalence of IBS in women is higher as compared with men. Women may be more likely to have constipation-predominant IBS as compared with men.
IBS is diagnosed using the Rome IV Criteria (2016). Symptoms must be chronic and ≥1x a week, for a duration of at least 6 months. Abdominal pain associated with ≥2 of the following: - pain related to defecation
- change in frequency of stool
- change in form/appearance of stool
Additional symptoms that are not part of the diagnostic criteria but are frequently reported in IBS include fewer than three bowel movements per week, more than three bowel movements per day, abnormal stool form, straining, rectal urgency, sensation of incomplete emptying, passage of mucus, and bloating.
