Millions suffer from diseases of the intestinal tract: irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, a common disease is gaining momentum.
Moreover, in recent times, scientists have discovered another digestive disorder, hiding under the bacterium SIBO. Malaise is more common than previously thought, mainly diseases are afflicted by people with “leaky bowel” symptoms.
What is formed Sibo
Syndrome of enhanced bacterial growth in the small intestine – poor diet, the main cause of the disease. Bacteria live in the entire gastrointestinal tract; there must be fewer bacteria in the intestine than in the large intestine. In the small intestine, food is mixed with digestive juices, and nutrients are absorbed into the blood. With SIBO, the absorption of nutrients is impaired: fat-soluble iron vitamins, which extremely negatively affect the health of the whole body, which can lead to damage to the gastric mucosa.
Bacteria associated with SIBO consume nutrients when food passes through the small intestine, which causes an explosion, gas, pain.
Even treatment of the small intestine with antibiotics gives a short-term result. This chronic disease can be cured, but patience and a change in diet are necessary. Avoid certain foods until the intestinal microflora returns to normal.
Causes and symptoms Sibo
Fatigue of joint pain
Causes and factors affecting the development of SIBO
There are a number of factors contributing to the development of bacterial growth: chronic pancreatitis, diabetes, structural defect in the small intestine, diverticulosis, injuries, fistulas, scleroderma, intestinal lymphoma, aging.
The use of certain drugs: immunosuppressants, proton pump inhibitors, disorders of the immune system.
Fragmentation caused by a violation of intestinal motility leads to improper functioning of the intestine.
According to studies published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, 66% of patients with celiac disease who followed a strict gluten-free diet tested positive for bacterial growth.
Another major cause of SIBO is blind loop syndrome. This leads to the fact that engines develop more slowly than bacteria.
Diabetes mellitus type two leads to gastrointestinal disorders. Studies have shown that 43% of diabetic patients suffered from SIBO.
Complications caused by Sibo
If the disease does not cure, it will lead to serious health problems. Dysbacteriosis of the small intestine leads to a lack of vitamins and nutrients, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, iron, deficiency of vitamins B12, calcium and fat-soluble vitamins. A person feels weakness, confusion.
Vitamin B12 deficiency, more common than many people think, has many factors that can lead to a lack of vitamin B12: medications that suppress stomach acid, H2 blockers, and other antacids. Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency: jaundice, fatigue, reduced cognitive function, anemia. If you have a deficiency of vitamin B12 and SIBO, this will lead to megaloblastic anemia, and a long-term deficiency can lead to irreversible nerve damage.
Official medicine is trying to treat the incidence of antibiotics in order to reduce the growth of pathogenic bacteria, but at the same time beneficial bacteria that are important for the normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract are killed. For patients suffering from blind loop syndrome, a long-term course of antibiotic treatment is provided.
But, with antibiotic treatment, the relapse rate is too high.
For effective treatment, it is important to determine why certain foods did not arise in the diet. That is, you need a healthy diet and lifestyle changes.
Splitting your servings into 4 – 5 small servings. This will reduce the number of bacteria and speed up digestion. Also in the stomach.
Further, to get rid of the symptoms of bacterial growth in the small intestine, take more probiotic products.
Because they cause fermentation.
Fructose and some fruit juices, honey, bakery products, high in high fructose corn syrup, sugar and sweets.
Polyols – sorbitol, isomalt, lactitol, xylitol, masltit, erythritol, these substances present in sugarless chewing gum and in medicinal preparations.
How to eat
To restore the intestinal mucosa, reduce inflammation and get rid of excess bacterial growth, it is necessary to eat rich fresh plant foods.
In addition to dietary changes, essential oils are used that alleviate some of the symptoms associated with the gastrointestinal tract.
Peppermint oil, oregano, frankincense, clove essential oil, a glass of water, take every morning to reduce the symptoms of indigestion: gas, bloating.
You should do yoga or other regular exercise.
It takes time to fight and restore the intestinal microflora.
