What is SIBO?
SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) is a medical condition caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. It causes wide-ranging digestive symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and pain and is believed to be the root cause of 60-70% of diagnosed Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) cases. Millions of people around the world have SIBO - whether they have been diagnosed or not! The causes of SIBO are layered, complex, and the condition itself is hard to treat without expert knowledge and a customized plan for healing.

Never wonder what to eat with SIBO again.
My name is Shivan Sarna, and I’ve suffered just like you. And while I could have let my pain rule my life… I decided instead to find its root causes - so I in turn could help others. It’s been a harrowing 27-year journey. I’ve seen it all and done it all - from acupuncture and Ayurveda, to colonoscopies and emergency room trips to today. During each step of my journey, I’ve always been 100% committed to revealing the truth about what really works in addressing our gut issues and what doesn’t… the latest research and innovations… and who are the “best of the best” when it comes to SIBO and IBS physicians, naturopaths, functional medicine practitioners, scientists, nutritionists and more. As a TV personality for the last 20+ years, I gather all of this information and make it easier for people just like you and me to understand. Won’t you join me on this journey to wellness? I hope you do. It may just be the best health decision you ever make.
And remember, there is always hope in healing.

Hosts Who Care
Shivan Sarna has played many roles in her life - daughter, wife, friend, yoga instructor, successful TV host… and also, a passionate SIBO and IBS health educator and advocate. Diagnosed with SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) in 2015 after a lifetime struggle with digestive issues, Shivan decided to turn her past pain and ultimate victory over SIBO into a tangible way to help others who were also suffering. From that life-affirming decision, Shivan made her vision a reality… and SIBO SOS™ was born. More than just a summit of the world’s best gut health physicians, researchers, and functional medicine practitioners, SIBO SOS™ has become a movement for awareness, advocacy, and patient empowerment.
