Have you heard the term “gut dysbiosis”?
Gut dysbiosis is a negative shift in the microbial communities within the small or large intestine resulting in health conditions or symptoms. Generally speaking, it is an imbalance of gut microbes compared to healthy individuals recognizing that everyone has a unique microbiota.
There are 4 types of gut dysbiosis including:
- SIBO – Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
- SIFO – Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth
- LIBO – Large Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth
- IMO – Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth
What health conditions are linked to dysbiosis?
They are many, and some would argue that almost or all health issues begin in the gut. But some prominent ones are:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Fatty liver disease
- Cystic fibrosis
- Autoimmune issues
- Epilepsy and many others
That is why I created a FREE online masterclass on Gut Dysbiosis and Digestive Health: How to Restore Your Gut Microbes to A Healthy Balance Naturally to help you understand the power of selecting the right foods not only to manage the symptoms but also reverse the physical changes driven by gut dysbiosis.
The masterclass also includes:
- Prevalence and significant microbiological shifts in each type of gut dysbiosis
- How to diagnose gut dysbiosis
- Treatment options
- Gut microbes
- Diet – Beyond the symptoms (you might be surprised to hear this!)
- Why certain foods are problematic
- Dietary recommendations
- What else you can do (gut friendly behaviors & dietary supplements)
- Plant-based diet recommendations
The masterclass also includes an audio and PowerPoint slides with hyperlinked peer-reviewed journal references.
If you need encouragement to give diet another try, watch this video by Judy (a retired RN and one of the Fast Tract Diet Facebook group admins) with Shivan Sarna (the host and producer of SIBO SOSⓇ). Judy was a candidate for perpetual SIBO given that her ileocecal valve was removed. But not any more because she has successfully addressed her SIBO with the Fast Tract Diet.
