What is SIBO?
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) occurs when there is an abnormal increase in the overall bacterial population in the small intestine - particularly types of bacteria not commonly found in that part of the digestive tract.
What is the Homemade Elemental diet?
The Homemade Elemental diet provides carbohydrates, proteins and fats in an easy to digest form. Nutrients are supplied in a way that they are absorbed very quickly and without extra work from the gut. This is key in treating SIBO because the longer that food is sitting in the GI tract, the more easily it can be used to fuel SIBO and aggravate symptoms.
