Small intestine bacterial overgrowth is the result of too little beneficial bacteria or an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, yeast, and/or parasites in the gut (alimentary canal).
The following self-assessment will help determine if you need to restore the proper balance of beneficial bacteria in your gut.
0 to 7 points: Good news! You don’t need the Dysbiosis Treatment Program. However, you should take a probiotic daily to protect and support your digestive health and immune system. A probiotic is a supplement that supplies live beneficial bacteria that help improve your own intestinal flora when you take it. We recommend Flora Supreme or Tri-Butyrin Supreme
8 to 14 points: You have dysbiosis caused by an excessive numbers of bacteria in the small bowel, generating frustrating and often painful gastrointestinal symptoms. We recommend a breath test, which measures the three fermented gases in the breath: hydrogen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. Once SIBO is formally ruled in with the aid of a breath test, specific dietary modifications, antibiotics and/or antifungal medicine or herbal products (GI Synergy) may be recommended.
15 to 20 points: You have severe dysbiosis. To remedy this condition, we recommend doing an extended digestion, absorption, & dysbiosis stool test. In this situation we recommend a DNA PCR-based test (GI Effects or Gut Zoomer 3.0) with reflexive culture-based test if needed. To restore your digestive tract environment, it may require specific antibiotic and/or antifungal medication or botanicals, as well as precise probiotic and prebiotic products together with agents that will repair the intestinal lining, such as GI Restore
