Hesitant about groups? 

Some of our most enthusiastic participants were too… until they attended a group session and experienced it for themselves.

Here’s what three of our wonderful participants had to say (or watch the video below to hear it straight from them!)


Why did you decide to take the sessions?

“I was looking for something more personalized.”

How has it helped you being in the sessions?

“The sessions helped me because I’m actually watching you work with other people. And through that, I’m learning through their questions, things that I forgot to ask, or maybe symptoms that I don’t have now, but I might have down the road. Plus, we share websites, supplements, protocols, and I get to be part of this amazing community. It has already shortened my journey by streamlining the information as we work together in a small group.”

What are the sessions like?

“It is terrific because we get one on one space for at twenty minutes with every person, [Dr. Siebecker is] so excited and so dedicated to their journey. This has been a great way to walk through the process. It almost makes it hard for you to think about ever going back to a one on one with a doctor. I’ve just found this super invaluable in ways I never thought.”

Are you glad you enrolled for small group coaching?

“I am 100% glad. The coaching is actually one of my favorite things I’ve ever signed up for.”


How has it helped you being in the sessions?

“Not only was I able to ask specific questions about my case but I was also able to listen to other people discuss their cases. I learned so many valuable pieces of information that I didn’t even think to ask.”

What are the sessions like?

“The sessions are actually so much fun. We get to speak to Shivan and Dr. Siebecker live. Informative and so easy to communicate with them both. They make it such a lovely experience.”

Are you glad you enrolled for small group coaching?

This course has been crucial to how much my condition and health has improved.”


Why did you decide to take the sessions?

“In my mind I was like, okay, if I’m going to do this, I’m going to do it right. I want to get all of the support that I need. I personally have been on this chronic health journey dealing with SIBO for 2 years. Doing treatments, not really getting better, actually getting worse, so to get all of the research and have all of the support right there in front of you, for me it was like this is the thing to do.”

How has it helped you being in the sessions?

“Not only do you get to ask questions you have for your own treatment but you’re hearing suggestions that other people are thinking of so you don’t have to have everything perfect when you’re there because you’re soaking in everybody’s information – that’s super helpful.”

What are the sessions like?

“The sessions are actually super helpful. The sessions are recorded so you can go back as you need to review and catch anything you missed.”

Are you glad you enrolled for small group coaching? 

“After dealing with this illness for so long this has rebooted me. I am re-energized. I am excited that I can do this. Sorry for getting a little emotional but it’s been such a transformation from going it alone. I’m so glad I signed up.”

Dr. Siebecker has already received a lifetime achievement award from fellow gastroenterology specialists. She has successfully helped to resolve thousands of SIBO cases. Dr. Siebecker will help you implement the proven algorithm she has used to resolve those cases during the live sessions with you. This 9-step proven protocol is highlighted in the SIBO Essentials Series videos, which a bonus  included in your enrollment.

Shivan Sarna is a SIBO author, patient advocate, and the brilliant mind behind one of the biggest educational platforms for SIBO / IMO. As the founder of SIBO SOS®, Shivan has produced multiple summits including The IBS & SIBO SOS® Summits, the Digestion SOS® Documentary Series, the Gut & Microbiome Rescue Summit… and more! And she’s bringing all that knowledge to you during the SIBO Solution Sessions!

What is...


Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) / Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth (IMO) is when the small intestine gets overrun by bacteria or archaea.

“So… is it an infection?” No. It’s a bit more complicated than that. And that’s why treating SIBO is a little trickier than popping a pill.

The overgrown microorganisms produce three types of gas byproducts:


E. coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Klebsiella aerogenes


Methanobrevibactor smithii

Hydrogen Sulfide

Desulfovibrio, Fusobacterium varium

The bacteria overgrowth causes a spike in these 3 gases causing the bloating, change in bowel movements, abdominal discomfort, sometimes even outright pain… and even a host of non-digestive symptoms!

If you’ve been thinking...

Your doctor doesn’t know enough about SIBO to help you.

Nothing works!

Will I ever get better?

The low FODMAP diet for your IBS is not enough.

If I could only find someone to really help me…

Small Group Coaching is perfect for you!

SIBO patient advocate & author, Shivan Sarna

Shivan Sarna, SIBO SOS® Host

After a lifetime of digestive problems, I was diagnosed with SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) in 2015. I was so excited to finally have a name for the symptoms that made me miserable – but I was quickly very frustrated by how hard it was to get access to reliable SIBO information, or even an appointment with a doctor who had experience treating SIBO. I set out to get answers about SIBO for myself – but along the way, I met hundreds (and then thousands) of other people like you who had the same problems: How do we find experts who really understand SIBO? What do we do if we can’t travel to see one of these experts? Will we have to suffer forever?

I created SIBO SOS® to solve this problem. It’s like attending a medical school class and having an office visit all rolled into one. I’m alongside you for support, guidance, and a shoulder to lean on. I’ve been where you are today, and it would be an honor to help guide you forward. Let’s kick SIBO’s butt together!
