Cause of SIBO

Post infectious

Overconsumption of simple carbohydrates


Low stomach acid level 

a case of gastroenteritis can often be the “heralding event” for the development of SIBO

Do you like sugary foods, sweets, soda, fruit juice?

proton pump inhibitors, morphine and other opiates, narcotics, possibly beta agonists and calcium channel blockers

Normal stomach acid levels are required to kill bacteria. Stress is one of cause of lowering stomach acid level!


Initial colonisation of bad bacteria

Altered anatomy

Slow motility of small intestine 

Did you know your stress level is directly associated with your gastrointestinal function? 

Pooling and stagnation of small intestine allows for bacterial overgrowth

malformation of the ileocecal valve, surgical intervention causing scarring and adhesions altering the normal anatomy of the small intestines

caesarean birth, no breast feeding

How does SIBO affect you?

SIBO causes damage to the absorptive surface of the small intestine - the ability of the body to absorb nutrients from food.

The absorptive surface of the small intestine is likened to a shaggy carpet, with finger-like protrusions called villi. The surface of the villi contain microvilli, which act as the interface of absorption—microvilli secrete enzymes called “brush border enzymes” which break starches into single molecules and proteins into single amino acids, so these can be absorbed.
