Irritable Bowel Syndrome is the main intestinal condition seen by gastroenterologists and 60% of IBS is now shown to be caused by Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Every week physicians see patients complaining of gas/bloating, and constipation and/or diarrhea.
The vast majority of physicians do not understand the complicated etiology of this condition and thus most patients are not being diagnosed promptly, and are not being treated with the comprehensive protocol required to eradicate the SIBO, and then prevent recurrence, heal the gut, and heal the affected nerves. Physicians who frequently see patients with gastroenterological conditions should watch these webinars to become an expert on SIBO, so they can feel comfortable taking each patient through the complex step by step process of this multifactorial condition. Dr. Mona Morstein has been on the Expert Panel and a Speaker at the Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth conference in 2014 and 2015, in Portland, OR. She has also spoken on this condition at naturopathic medical schools and via webinar.
