SIBO and Food Sensitivities

Inflammation... A complex biologic process that is initiated by damage to tissues designed to protect, heal and restore function to cells, tissues and organism. It is classically defined by its five cardinal signs: pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function. So what does SIBO have to do with inflammation and food sensitivities? The short answer is that SIBO causes damage to cells of the gut wall in the small intestine.

Did you know that bacteria in the small intestine are able to consume and deplete Iron and Vitamin B12, both of which are essential for normal red blood cell function?
