There's definitely something not right with your stomach or intestines but your doctor cannot find anything. You've been tested for parasites, fecal occult blood, even done a colonoscopy. Nothing! 

You wonder if you have IBS, SIBO, hidden food allergies, a more serious issue? You've heard of "leaky gut", but what is that? What going on in your gut and how can you fix it.

Sometimes silent and chronic inflammation can be going on in your intestinal tract without you knowing it. There are diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis and Chrohn's Disease that are named inflammatory bowel diseases. However you can have inflammation in your gut, that has not reached the severity of these diseases to be diagnosed as such. There is a way to find out if that is going on, and if the inflammation may be from more of an origin of SIBO (or dysbiosis in the gut), or if the inflammation stems more from hidden allergens.

This is something very easy to run for my patients and can give some insight to help us narrow down a treatment. Click Here for More Information
