SIBO and Leaky Gut: What the Science Says

Duration: 1 Hour
Gastrointestinal symptoms like abdominal pain and bloating account for millions of doctor visits every year. One of the conditions that may be considered for such a nonspecific presentation of symptoms is SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, a concept that has gained popularity on the internet. Is SIBO a real disorder? Are the breath tests that used to diagnose it bogus? Is the problem not so much overgrowth, but dysbiosis, the growth of the wrong bacteria? In that case, should you eat a low-FODMAP diet or a high fiber diet? Another purported intestinal disorder that’s shrouded in controversy is leaky gut. I covered what exactly intestinal permeability is, what it isn’t, how to prevent it and how you can heal it with diet.
All of the content was extremely useful. Dr. G is the best teacher, even via the web, I have ever listened to. Clear, engaging, personable, passionate, patient and very interesting.
It is a very cool feeling that there are over 500 people around the globe, who are interested in nutrition and want to know even more. So keep up the good work.
Dr. Greger did a fantastic job bringing his genius knowledge down to my level. I learned so much on all the ways to research effectively, thoroughly and truthfully. He was fantastic! He went over aspects enough times for me to get what he was talking about. So he didn't go too fast. He went just at the right pace. He did it with humor and fascination on a subject that can be tedious, he made it an adventure. I really appreciate all the work and planning that went into the four hours! Can't wait for him to do it again on another subject!
This course is worth so much money and a huge value to those particularly in university and research. Thank you so much for your time and efforts!
Dr. Greger is a rare treasure and his educational style is engaging. Thank you all!
