The Connection Between SIBO, IBS, IDB

In This Episode:

  • What are the differences between SIBO, IBS, and IBD
  • What bacteria and fungus are present in nearly all people who have Crohn’s disease
  • Why stool tests don’t always give the entire picture of your bowel health
  • Where you can pick up parasites and how you can avoid them
  • How acupuncture can help with motility
  • How much water you should be drinking every single day
  • What the best source of caffeine is

IBS is the most common GI disorder worldwide and SIBO tops the charts as the #1 cause of it. But what about those people who have Crohn’s or other inflammatory bowel diseases? I’m continuing my discussion with Dr. Ilana Gurevich by getting deeper into the different diagnoses of SIBO, IBS, and IBD.

Dr. Ilana Gurevich is a naturopathic doctor specializing in gut diseases. Through careful stool analysis, sometimes even sending your stools to a specialist, her bold approach to treatment will help you solve your IBD issues. Though she often prescribes antibiotic treatments for SIBO, Dr. Ilana also prioritizes herbs and herbal treatments for her patients, sometimes in multiple courses. She also uses her background in acupuncture to help give a complete picture of your body’s health to help solve your IBD problems.

In this episode,  you’ll learn about the bacteria and fungus growth present in nearly 100% of Crohn’s Disease patients. You’ll also find out the truth behind testing stool samples – it’s not always enough to poop in a cup and look at it. We also talk about acupuncture and how this ancient Chinese healing art can be used to treat your gut problems. Have you ever tried acupuncture? How much water do you drink everyday? What’s your relationship with caffeine?


“They just came out with a study about 6 or 7 months ago where they did stool cultures on inflammatory bowel disease patients and their families and what they found is this triad of two bacterias and a fungus that are all present in almost 100% of Crohn’s patients.” (5:26) “I see a lot of IBS patients, most of them don’t have IBD, most of them have some IBS within their IBD.” (14:03) “I cannot explain to you how much chronic disease stems from the mouth.” (27:16)

    Very interesting! Concern about the Strep that Dr. Gurevich mentioned was Strep Thermophilus which is in almost every yogurt and most probiotics that have multiple bacteria. Is it really Strep Thermophilus?? Thank you for this podcast it contains a lot of information.
    Good information about accupuncture and the rest.
