What is SIBO?
SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) is when there is an imbalance of bacteria within the small intestines.
What are the symptoms of SIBO?
With SIBO you can have a lot of pain in the gut, diarrhea, fatigue, digestive distress, gas, and bloating. You can sometimes also have issues of anemia and even weight loss.
What is the root cause of SIBO?
The root cause is our diet. Most of us do not realize we have great control over our gut with the foods we put in our mouths. The additives, chemicals, and properties of the food can either feed good bacteria or bad bacteria. Rebuild the gut or damage the gut, how we eat is the largest impact on gut health. Another aspect can also come from a lack of food moving through the digestive tract properly. Foods with chemicals like glyphosates can damage the gut lining and destroy good bacteria, impacting absorption and proper breakdown of foods, making it hard to move your food through the small intestines. The small intestines are where you do the majority of your nutrient absorption so keeping a balance here is key to our overall health.
Is there anything natural I can do for SIBO?
Doing the GAPS diet is a great way to restore balance to the body. This protocol is designed to support you helping to bring balance to the gut. We always suggest getting your microbiome healthy working properly, this is part of this journey of balancing the body.
ProSynbiotic (Start with 1 capsule/am & 1 capsule/pm then slowly go up to 4/am & 4/pm – on an empty stomach. This probiotic has prebiotic inulin, which good bacteria need to grow on)
Zypan, (4 tablets – 50-60 minutes after each meal. It contains HCL, pepsin, pancreatic & digestive enzymes that help liquefy food & stimulates the gallbladder and pancreas. It helps to breakdown the protein into peptides and then into amino acids so your body can use the proteins for rebuilding. Proteins are the building blocks of everything in your body.)
Zymex Wafers, (Chew 4 wafers am/pm. Zymex helps create an environment in the “soil” of the small intestines so the good bacteria needed in the mucosa can produce the hormones, antibacterial agents, and keep all the microflora healthy that are needed to support digestion. Zymex also “eats the food” that candida wants, and balances the pH. It also helps with fungus overgrowth and sugar cravings!)
Lactic Acid Yeast Wafers (Chew 4 wafers am/pm. Creates a healthy terrain in the colon to allow the proper bacteria to flourish by acidifying the colon.)
Enzycore (2 per meal. Contains L-Glutamine to heal and seal the gut, which eliminates allergies. Plant Enzymes)
Cod Liver Oil (2 pearls twice a day. Vit D & Vit A, supports heart, bones, teeth, eyes, liver & immune)
Protefood (1 capsule am/pm. Essential amino acids, RNA & vitamin C, calcium, potassium & adrenal, for immune, skeletal, muscular & collagen rebuilding support).
Cyruta Plus (6 tablets every meal. 24/day, after Stage 1 of GAPS. Very powerful collagen healing food to rebuild the gut walls)
Thymex (6) Take 3 two times a day, this will help support cleaning out the lymphatic system.
Spleen PMG® (6) Take 3 two times a day 30 mins away from food.
Okra Pepsin-E3 (6) Take 2 15 mins before food.
Chlorophyll Complex™ Perles (Fat-Soluble) (6) Take 3 two times a day do without food is best. This can help to relieve pain.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BULLETS BEFORE USING THIS PROTOCOL
- The protocol above is designed to address your issues at the foundational level, and not to treat disease. This means, in our opinion, most of our health problems, short of accident or trauma, are of a dietary nutritional deficiency. The listed protocol or supplement provides your body with essential micro and macronutrients to help and assist normal nutritional balance.
- The daily dosage is in ( ) parenthesis for most protocols; for example (6) means take 6 per day, but spread it out by taking half in the morning and a half in the evening. Some protocols will have more specific instructions to follow.
- MediHerb products, shown in italics, often speed healing response and should be considered for most protocols unless contraindicated.
- We recommend adding the General Health Daily Fundamentals pack to each protocol. This adds to the critical foundational nutrition each protocol needs. It contains Catalyn––an entirely whole-food and glandular broad-spectrum multivitamin, Trace Minerals-B12, and Tuna Omega-3 pearls for your DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids daily requirements.
- Spacing out the daily doses throughout the day improves absorption and is strongly recommended.
- Most supplements should be taken with food except for PMG’s, most calcium products, Gastrex, Chlorophyll Complex™, Okra Pepsin E3, Cholocol II, and Zymex II. Also, most herbs work more efficiently if taken away from food.
- Be advised that these nutritional and herbal products are not intended as primary therapy for any disease, but rather to provide nutritional and herbal support to help normalize body physiology and repair.
