$250 – $300

Join Dr. Leah Hassall, ND, in learning more about the most common cause of IBS: Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). It is estimated that up to 84% of cases of IBS are due to an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine, which is typically almost sterile. For reasons that will be explored in this weekend workshop, some people will develop too much bacteria in the small intestine and experience gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating and changes in the frequency and consistency of bowel movements. Topics include when to suspect SIBO, how it is diagnosed, how it is treated and how to support people on a SIBO diet. Participants will leave with lecture handouts, supportive resources and experience in dietary consultation and meal planning for people with SIBO.
