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 this condition – 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.

My name is Shivan Sarna

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. 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 gastroenterologists, naturopaths, functional medicine practitioners, scientists, nutritionists and more.

Join me on this journey back to health? I hope you do. It may just be the best decision you ever make.

Over the past 20 years you may have seen me as a TV Host (especially if you like shopping). I’m not a doctor, nutritionist, or any other kind of health practitioner. So how did I end up at SIBO SOS?

After a lifetime of digestive problems, I was diagnosed with 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 these experts? Will we have to suffer forever?

I went back to my roots as a teacher (I taught yoga in my own studio for years) and focused on bringing the experts together in one place to teach all of us: that’s how SIBO SOS™ was born.

After finding the answers for myself, I created SIBO SOS® and wrote my book, “Healing SIBO” to get the answers to YOU. In your journey to understand, treat, and manage IBS, SIBO, and other digestive issues, I’m your guide, advocate, support, and shoulder to cry on. I won’t tell you what to do – but I’ll give you a nudge, introduce you to the people with the answers, and always be here to encourage you.

Get the answers you need so you can start healing and get back to life!

XOXO,
Shivan
