I concluded from reading Norm’s books and other research on SIBO that it is a case of controlling the bacterial numbers rather than eradicating them. If we could figure out why they are overgrowing then that would be a great help, but it is difficult (so many causes etc).

The motility point is an interesting one as I seem to fair far better if I leave several hours between my meals (no snacking) – and I was wondering if this was down to motility i.e. by not eating I am giving my gut peristalsis a chance to do it’s job. It is something I am trying to work on (but I love my food and so love to snack). I would be interested if anyone knows of some good websites that talk about this (some evidence to back up the theory may go some way to pushing me into action)
