As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner I see people with a wide range of symptoms.


If you polled 50 Functional Medicine Doctors, all would agree the place to start with a complex patient is in the gut.


Research is now showing that there is a relationship between SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and FM (fibromyalgia).


SIBO refers to a condition in which an abnormally large number of bacteria are present in the small intestine. Additionally, the types of bacteria in the small intestines resemble the bacteria of the colon rather than the small intestine.


Simply put, small intestine bacterial overgrowth is a chronic bacterial infection of the small intestine.  The infection is of a bacterium that normally lives in the gastrointestinal tract, but has abnormally overgrown in the location not meant for many other bacteria.

The choices you make at meal time can trigger your immune system to induce systemic inflammation. Twenty years ago when we talked about “leaky gut” at a conventional medical seminar it was considered an artifact. However, if you do a published medical search on it today, many high profile publications will appear.


An abundance of unhealthy fats and sugar can set the stage for inflammation by prompting an immune response. It is now evident that obesity and Type II Diabetes are associated with a low grade inflammatory tone.

I just listened to my monthly subscription for Functional Medicine Update. My good friend, Dr. Jeffrey Bland interviewed Dr. Antonio Gasbarrini a gastroenterologist from University of Rome. The conversations are all very informative and Dr. Bland has been performing this great service for the past 32 years. Hard to believe, but true and I have learned a great deal from these audio presentations over my last 20 years of implementing Functional Medicine. This month's conversation was ‘pace setting’ and ‘paradigm shifting.’ The topic was "leaky gut" also known as "metabolic endotoxemia.” We focused on the mucosal barrier function as it relates to irritable bowel disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and liver disease.
