Description

It is known that Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth creates gastrointestinal symptoms, but there is little research looking at the correlation between SIBO and symptoms related to autoimmune disease. In this presentation, we will look at research linking the microbiome to autoimmunity, and how SIBO may impact systemic inflammatory response. We also examine how SIBO can contribute to histamine intolerance and its impact on joint pain using case studies to support. The importance of stress management and individualized dietary therapies when SIBO is present will also be discussed.

Objectives

Understand the research linking specific types of bacteria to autoimmmune disease
Learn how histamine intolerance is linked to SIBO, and its impact on joint pain and other inflammatory symptoms
Realize how prolonged emotional stress can impact SIBO
Review cases related to SIBO and Rheumatoid Arthritis and Undifferentiated Connective Tissues Disease
Understand the research linking specific types of bacteria to autoimmmune disease
