SIBO is real.
I can’t tell you how many times people have questioned or asked me, “But you can’t eat garlic? Or avocado? Why can’t you have an onion? Or apple? What the what?!”
SIBO is Real

SIBO is alive and well, and each day more and more people are being diagnosed with it.
On a weekly basis, someone I know personally or a reader (new or old) reaches out to me, “Oh my gosh….I think I have SIBO,” or “I was just diagnosed with SIBO, so now I get you.”
And just yesterday a friend reached out and said, “I always knew gluten was bad for me but I would still have it occasionally. I never thought it was SIBO stuff until doc brought it up yesterday. I thought….good thing I know the ultimate expert.”
Yes, it is real, but I am so, so, so, so happy and grateful to report that it’s not very real for me anymore.
I’m eating all the FODMAPs. (TMI, but you need to know this) I go to the bathroom 1-3 times every single day, like clockwork (and for those of you with SIBO IBS-C, you’ll know the huge feat in that alone).
I don’t feel ravenous for everything in sight anymore. My B12 levels are better (still not optimal, so I still have to supplement) than before. I have the energy to make it to bedtime (a few weeks ago that was challenged, but more on that for a different day).
Do I think I’ll never relapse again? No. I won’t be that confident because SIBO is a tricky brat, but I definitely have the overgrowth figured out so I can remedy should it happen.
My goal now is simply to help as many women who think they might have SIBO, who are newly diagnosed with SIBO or who have been on the healing path for quite some time and are still struggling.
The final version of my main e-book, The Gutsy Girl’s Bible (the 3.0 version) includes every single thing I’ve ever written about SIBO and healing from it.
Because guys…..it’s real. And it’s a real pain in the a#$. It’s really not fun to have to avoid apples, garlic, onion, and asparagus. And it’s definitely not a made up condition by any stretch of the imagination.
I get it.
I get you.
p.s. I’ve totally been digging my blogging hiatus. It’s been so good for the soul, and for healing SIBO even further. These past few weeks has been my best yet, health-wise.
You will heal. I will help.
