My SIBO is Gone!

I received the results of my third SIBO test this week, and it is gone!  It took seven months, and I feel so good! I did not get rid of the SIBO with diet alone, but it was a big part of feeling better.  I have been working with my naturopathic doctor, and took two courses of antibiotics over the last seven months.  I will be continuing to eat a SIBO prevention diet to prevent relapse, so there will be plenty of new recipes.  I have found with the FodMaps, as I have healed, I am able to tolerate some of the higher FodMap foods in my diet such as dried dates, (at the advice of my nutritionist) but not any that are “illegal” on SCD Diet/SIBO Bi-Phasic Diet.  Go Here to Get the Diet Printout. The key is moderation and listening to your body. If you try a food in the higher to moderate FodMap category, go slow and don’t overdo it.  It is important to me to get variety of nutritious food in my diet and incorporate them slowly.  If I have a reaction, I back off and go back to lower FodMap, trying again later.  Eating FodMap foods are important for the microbiome diversity. Also, wait until you are symptom free before incorporating some of the moderate and then higher FodMap foods. Make sure to look at the tags at the top of each recipe to see if it has a Low FodMap tag.  Some of the recipes are not on the low spectrum, so I don’t tag those as Low FodMap.  Get to know the list of foods that are high and low. Take the list to the grocery store with you to refer to. I found this very helpful. SIBO can reoccur if you go back to a Standard American Diet (SAD) in many cases. I am one of those that relapse. I was originally eating Paleo for two years, but tweaked it to a SCD Low FodMap protocol within a Paleo template after being diagnosed with SIBO. It is important to know that Low FodMap is not a long term fix. Eating Low FodMap for too long can disrupt your microbiome and the good bacteria in your digestive tract. It is a short term symptom reliever allowing some of the bad bacteria in the small intestine to die off.  Everyone has different food tolerances and intolerances, so I encourage you to get in touch with your digestion, and find what works best for you, and get tested if you suspect you have SIBO. If you have SIBO it is very helpful to work with an experienced practitioner. You can go here to read more about it. This isn’t medical advice, but my story and experience. Wishing you a happy nutritious day!

SIBO Low FodMap Specific Carb Diet Food Guide

Good Morning Lovely People!

I am feeling so good following the Low FodMap Sibo Food guide developed by Dr. Allison Siebecker.  This is the guide I use when developing my recipes, and I wanted to share it with you.  It is very helpful because it lists all the food in categories and breaks them down further into which ones are the lowest FodMap to the highest and also the illegal ones on the SCD Diet. Click the link below to view it and print it.  I refer to it all the time and even take it to the grocery store with me!
