Is SIBO causing your acne?

I spent last Saturday nerding out at a course, and it was awesome. 🤓

I go to all kinds of educational seminars & conferences, but this one was particularly great because it was on a very specific condition that affects a lot of people, ESPECIALLY people with acne.

I've seen it in a number of my patients with acne. People struggling with their skin for years, who have tried all kinds of treatments.

And when we treat THIS, their skin finally starts to improve.

So... Do any of the following symptoms ring a bell?

  • Abdominal bloating

  • Abdominal discomfort after meals

  • Excessive gas

  • Excess burping

  • Chronic nausea

  • Heartburn/reflux

  • Chronically loose bowel movements

  • Chronic constipation (less than one bowel movement per day, difficult to pass, OR incomplete bowel movements)

  • Alternating diarrhea and constipation

  • Oily stools

If even ONE of these is something you experience, it's possible you have something called Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). (Pronounced see-bo)

SIBO is an alteration in the bacteria in your intestines, and can wreak havoc not only on digestion, but can also affect many other areas of the body: skin (acne, rosacea, hives), liver function, bladder function, etc.

So if you have ANY of the above symptoms, it may be time to test for SIBO.

And after this weekend's course, I've got some extra tricks up my sleeve to guide you through SIBO treatment!

Improved skin? Check ✔︎ Improved digestion? Check ✔︎ If you're ready to take the leap, book an appointment and I'll get you started!

I LOVE treating SIBO.
