By the end of this course, you will have a refreshed understanding of SIBO and the practical applications of testing and therapeutic strategies from one of the leaders in this field.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a relatively new and poorly characterised diagnosis. Yet it also appears to be fairly common and is considered a frequent contributor to IBS, which is the most widespread gastrointestinal condition seen in clinical practice.
This 3-part webinar series, presented by Dr Jason Hawrelak, will discuss many of the controversies in the diagnosis and treatment of SIBO, as well as update you on recent research in this area.
– Is the Lactulose Breath Test really the most accurate breath test for diagnosing SIBO? Can other breath tests provide accurate diagnostic data?
– Is a strict diet necessary as a keystone of treatment?
– Are probiotics really contraindicated in the management of SIBO?
– Do prebiotics have any role to play in its treatment?
– What are effective herbal approaches in the management of the three main SIBO varieties – hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen-sulphide?
– How can we protect the colonic microbiome from damage, whilst still effectively eradicating SIBO?
These topics, and many more, will be covered over the course of this webinar series.
By the end of this course, you will have a refreshed understanding of SIBO and the practical applications of testing and therapeutic strategies from one of the leaders in this field.
The webinars will be recorded and available to watch at a time that suits you.
Live class dates: May 12th, 19th & 26th 11.30-13.00 UK GMT
