SIBO: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments
- Underlying SIBO causes and risk factors
- SIBO testing interpretation
- Overall treatment approach (with diagrams)
- SIBO treatment algorithm
Interest in Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) has been increasing ever since it was identified as an underlying cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the most common gastrointestinal disorder worldwide.
The newest research is revealing what causes SIBO and how symptoms are generated. SIBO symptoms include bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea and food intolerances. Many conditions cause these symptoms but SIBO can be identified by a simple hydrogen/methane Breath Test.
Once identified, treatment can offer remarkable benefits. Standard SIBO treatments include Diet, Herbal Antibiotics, Pharmaceutical Antibiotics, Elemental Formulas and Prokinetics.
Dr. Siebecker will share a treatment algorithm and lots of clinical pearls. Join us for this comprehensive SIBO overview.

Probiotics and Prebiotics in SIBO Management
- What is the potential role of probiotics and prebiotics in the management of SIBO?
- Are probiotics really contraindicated? Or are some probiotic strains well-indicated for this condition?
Are all prebiotics contraindicated? Or are only some prebiotic compounds best avoided in patients with SIBO? Can prebiotics even play a therapeutic role?
Jason will be answering these questions and using case studies to demonstrate how select probiotics and prebiotics can be effective tools in the treatment of SIBO.
Dr Jason Hawrelak ND, BNat(Hons), PhD, MNHAA, MASN, FACN is a naturopath, herbalist, and nutritionist with over 16 years of clinical experience. He currently teaches the Evidence-based Complementary Medicine Program in the School of Medicine at the University of Tasmania and is the Gastrointestinal Imbalances lecturer in the Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine program at the University of Western States (Portland, Oregon).
Jason completed his Honours (First Class) and PhD degrees in the areas of the gastrointestinal microbiota, irritable bowel syndrome, and the clinical applications of pre- and probiotics. He has written extensively in Australian and International textbooks and journals on these topics.
Dr Nirala Jacobi ND
Treating SIBO With The Bi-Phasic Protocol
- How to use the Bi-Phasic diet protocol to successfully treat your SIBO patients
- Histamine and salicylate sensitivities in SIBO
- Herbal antimicrobials for SIBO
IN this talk, Dr Jacobi will outline her Bi-phasic protocol for the treatment and management of SIBO. Using this methodical approach, practitioners will learn how to prioritise gut healing, digestive support, prokinetic and antimicrobial treatment for optimal patient outcomes. Advanced food intolerance management (histamines, salicylates ) will also be discussed
Untangling The Web: Visceral Mobilisation In SIBO
- Research findings in relation to the effects of visceral mobilisation
- Differentiate visceral mobilisation from massage and other forms of manual therapy
- Appreciate the role of the visceral mobilisation manual therapist in SIBO treatment
What’s the role of manual therapy in SIBO?
In this presentation, Alyssa describes visceral mobilisation, which is a useful manual therapy adjunct to naturopathic treatment of SIBO. Mechanisms and techniques will be described, particularly in reference to the mesenteric root of the small intestine (home of the enteric nervous system or “gut-brain”) and the infamous iliocaecal valve. Relevance of adhesions will be explored and research findings will be summarised. The presentation concludes with case studies to help you get a good feel for the potential of visceral mobilisation in treating SIBO.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Accurately summarise visceral mobilisation, and its proposed mechanisms of action, to their patients
- Recall research findings in relation to the effects of visceral mobilisation
- Differentiate visceral mobilisation from massage and other forms of manual therapy
- Use analogies to help their patients understand when visceral mobilisation may be of benefit
- Perform a simple visceral mobilisation technique on themselves
- Appreciate the role of the visceral mobilisation manual therapist in the healthcare team of the patient with SIBO
- Find a practitioner trained in visceral mobilisation to refer to
Alyssa Tait is a physiotherapist and naturopath with a special interest in abdominal and pelvic pain disorders and the gut and urogenital microbiome.
Her initial interest in gut health stemmed from her postgraduate studies in physiotherapy, focusing on constipation and other bowel disorders in the context of continence issues.
This led to further studies in nutrition medicine, followed by herbal medicine and naturopathy, and she is currently completing her Masters in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.
Her physiotherapy management of gastrointestinal tract dysfunction heavily employs the use of visceral manipulation, a gentle manual therapy that aids the body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction.
Visceral manipulation will be the focus of her presentation.

- What is the link between SIBO and IBS?
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is such a frequent clinical presentation. Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is one of the leading causes of IBS.
- At the SIBO Summit 2016 you will come to understand how to successfully assess and competently treat SIBO to profoundly affect patient outcomes.
- What is SIBO positively correlated with? ● Digestive symptoms ● Fibromyalgia ● Gallstones ● Interstitial cystitis ● Acne rosacea ● Malabsorption syndromes
- How Does SIBO Manifest?
- SIBO is caused by a translocation of bacteria into the small intestine (SI) as well as poor SI motility.
- Speakers will discuss what can cause this translocation, and the myriad systemic impacts this can have.
- How do we treat SIBO?
- Successful eradication of SIBO requires a comprehensive treatment approach.
- At the SIBO Summit 2016 you will be led by SIBO experts. Get the latest evidence-based research, pharmacology, dietary interventions and synergistic treatment options for managing this condition.
- SIBO has been found to have far-reaching influences in an ever-increasing number of conditions.
