Gut Motility & SIBO

Why do you have SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth?


Well there are many factors that can cause SIBO but one of the HUGE underlying factors that often is overlooked is motility.


A change in motility can often set us up for the potential to get SIBO.

  • Food poisoning or gastroenteritis

  • Irregular bowel movements

  • Stressful events

  • Poor thyroid function

  • Medications such as PPIs or opioids

  • Etc.

Identifying and treating the cause of poor motility is key in finding long-term improvement.
