What Is SIBO Infection Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth
Greetings. It's naturopath Eric Bakker fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher, and also formulator of the Canxida range of dietarysupplements. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I'm going to do some more FAQs. I'm goingto do a series of frequently asked questions on SIBO or small intestinal bowel overgrowth.I get emails all the time from people from many different countries now. In fact, I havepatients now in nearly 50 different countries around the world, all on Skype and on FaceTime. It's quite exciting meeting all these new people. It's amazing the kind of positionthat I'm in. I really enjoy doing these internet consultations.I've got a question here from a lady in India
of all places. Eric, what is SIBOé Can youtell me what SIBO isé There are a lot of misconceptions regardingSIBO. In fact, I think there are many different types of bacterial overgrowth and we get expertstalking about SIBO, but what about LIBO, large intestinal bowel overgrowth. What about stomachbacterial overgrowthé There are overgrowths of bacteria that can live right throughoutthe digestive system. What about the oral cavity bacteriaé Bacteria live all aroundus, in us, and on us. Bacteria are not necessarily bad.If we look at the digestive system, it's basically a 20foot long tube broken up into variousparts. And these parts do different jobs ï¿½ for
want of a better word. If we start with thestomach, we've got an area that's very important, it has a very low pH and an acid forming environment,so it's involved in taking the food we're supposed to chew properly and mixing it upwith enzymes, take it further down where digestion starts occurring in the small intestine.The small intestine is a very important part of the digestive system where most of yourdigestive processes occur. There is also a large part of your immune system that residesin the small intestine, so this is the part that we're going to talk about. What is SIBOéIt's an overgrowth of bacteria in this small intestinal tract. There are three parts tothe small intestine. You've got the duodenum,
the jejunum, the central part, and the ileum,or the terminal part. All of these parts have varying bacteria in them and varying pH oracidity or alkalinity by which they work depending on many different factors. If we look at thebacterial content of the small bowel compared to the large bowel, it's quite remarkable.It's estimated we have around 10,000 to 15,000 bacteria per milliliter, which is only a thousandthsof a liter. It's a very small amount of fluid. We've got 10,000 bacteria just in that smallamount. If we look at the large intestine, we're lookingat literally a billion bacteria for the same quantity of digestive juices, so you've gotway more bacteria in the large intestine.
That often is the reason why many people getsick and they get bloating, gas, and lots of digestive problems. Candida can thriveanywhere in the digestive system. Some people tend to have a lot more Candida in the largeintestine. Some tend to have it more in certain parts of the small intestine, but the SIBOis a bacterial overgrowth. Generally, what you'll find is it's not oneparticular species, but it will be several species of similar bacteria that we repeatedlyfind in people. And this can cause a really big problem with people when they get an overgrowthof these bacteria. Because the bacteria is so important for helping us maintain properdigestion and absorption of the nutrients
in the food that we eat. They are also veryimportant for ensuring we have good motility or movement of food and stool through thedigestive system. Once we start getting an imbalance, an overgrowth, we start gettingall sorts of flow on effects as a result of those processes being disturbed.And you can see what happens if you're not breaking down food properly, absorbing, anddigesting it, you're going to get a lot of fatigue. You're going to get poor growth orrecovery, poor recuperation, poor brain function, poor muscle function; lots of things are justnot going to work properly. If you get poor motility or what we call peristalsis throughthe small bowel, you're going to get a lot
The 6 Foods That Kill Bad Bacteria In Your Gut
Hi Everyone, Ken here, and in this presentationI'm going to show you what foods you can eat to ensure you have a healthy gut so that youcan have a better immune system, and reduce tons of different types of infections. Thisfood can also help you accelerate your fat loss. The bad bacteria that I mentioned before couldactually be one of the biggest reasons why all the diets you are doing and exercise youare doing are not actually giving you any results. In my PaleoBurn program, we actually reduceconsumption of tons of the bad bacteria producing
foods and increase the amount of food thatgives you good bacteria. Let me go ahead and just tell you what kindof foods you can eat that will help you. But first a quick warning: tons of the food that say they have the goodbacteria are flat out lying to you because during the process of making it, they killmost of the good bacteria. On the labels of many yogurt and dairy products,they'll say it has tons of probiotics and microorganisms that are good for your gut.While this can be true, most pasteurized products kill off all bacteria, good and bad, so youessentially don't get what you think you are
buying. Also, most yogurt you buy at the store hastoo much sugar, which remember, feeds the bad bacteria. So, it really is best to stay away from mostcommercial yogurts that are pasteurized. Most items that have good bacteria are fermented.And people have been eating them for thousands of years. Though only recently have we stoppedeating them as much. Especially in many western cultures, we justdon't eat enough of this stuff. Here are some examples:
Sauerkraut, fermented cabbage,squash, carrots,oninions, turnips,eggplant, cucumbers,milk, kefirAn indian yogurt called Lassi Raw YogurtButtermilk If you eat more of this stuff, you will increasethe amount of good bacteria in your body and
reduce the amount of bad bacteria.But honestly, you are going to need to eat a ton of each of these items to really getthe amount you need for a healthy gut. It would take you hours and hours of eatingthese foods to really get the amount of good bacteria to outbalance the bad bacteria. Forexample, you would need to drink six 12 oz containers of kefir each day every day toreally get what you really need. Kefir is a fermented milk.SO you can see that it would be a lot of these foods you would have to consume to get theamount you really need. Now, alternatively, there is something elseyou could do that takes just one minute per
day to get the healthy gut you want, improveyour immune system, and reduce and prevent a lot of different infections.but I'vesaved that segment for tomorrow. Remember, the best action you can take todayto increase the amount of good bacteria in your gut is to eat more fermented food.thiswill always be a good choice. And then tomorrow I'll tell you about theone minute gut cure in the next tutorial! Now another quick warning here.you may be alreadytaking what I'll reveal in the next tutorial and that's ok because I'm going to I'll showyou why 99% of the supplements out there are inferior and don't give you the benefits theyclaim.
