Lifestyle Measures that may help address symptoms include following the Low FODMAP diet until symptoms have been resolved.  ​ After approximately 6-8 weeks it is time to start the reintroduction protocol.   Following the Low FODMAP diet can improve symptoms often with in a few days to weeks.  Click here to download a copy of the diet to get you started.

Rebalancing the gut is possible.   The most important first step is to make sure to have an evaluation by a gastroenterologist, to rule out any serious conditions.  Next, try the Low FODMAP Diet - download a copy of the diet here.  Once cleared from gastroenterology, consider an herbal protocol that could assist with rebalancing the microbiome, helping to eliminate the bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.  While treating bacterial overgrowth, it is important to support the microbiome with an evidence based probiotic.

S. boulardii is a true biotic, or living organism, which has been shown to have beneficial effects on intestinal microbalance when administered in adequate amounts.
