Why SIBO Patients Tend To Have Acid Reflux

Eric Bakker here, the naturopath from New
Zealand. Thanks for coming back. Why do SIBO patients tend to have more acid
reflex, more GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, than non-SIBO patients? I’ve certainly noticed a connection here. Not all people with small intestinal bowel
overgrowth issues will experience reflux disease, but many, many people do. Dr. Norman Robillard, PhD, who I hold in very
high admiration for his digestive work, has a theory, and it’s an excellent theory which
I totally endorse. From where I’m sitting from my experience,
what happens in the small bowel, if you’ve got bacteria sitting there right up the top
part of the duodenum, they’re going to be producing gases, aren’t they? You’re going to get an inappropriate fermentation,
a dysbiosis fermentation. I’ve always called SIBO dysbiosis because
that’s what we used to call it, poor bacteria, but now we know that the small bowel, particularly
the upper regions, are where all these bacteria can really thrive. Now, what the hell? How could this be connected with stomach acid? Well, if they produce gases, when you think
about it, they could be putting pressure on the stomach and forcing acid up rather than
down, which can make it come more up in the upper regions. Then, eventually, LES, poor uncle LES, the
lower esophageal sphincter that sits on top of the stomach, will eventually become weaker
and weaker and open, and you’ll get reflux disease. What about drugs? Aren’t they any good? Why don’t we just recommend a proton pump
inhibitor or Nexium or some crap like that? Well, I totally agree with Dr. Robillard that
these are a really dumb thing to do because when you take acid blocking drugs, unfortunately,
you’re going to create an environment in the stomach lower down into the small bowel where
it’s more conducive for the growth of these small bacteria. In fact, you’re shooting yourself in the foot. If you’ve got SIBO, what I’m trying to say
is, and you take a drug for stomach acid problem, you could make the SIBO worse. Instead, Robillard, in fact, is not really
agreeing with FODMAPs, in that case, who would encourage people to eat resistant starches,
like sort of semi-raw bananas and corn and things like that. I agree with Robillard, but I don’t have specific
recommendations for food because, for where I’m sitting, I see too many people have got
variables. I don’t like bringing out [inaudible] cookie-cutter
diet sheets that… and, say, give to a thousand people and it suits everybody. So many people will benefit from some foods
that really aggravate the hell out of others, so cases have to be taken on their individual
merits. There are so many variables with patient the
best approach for SIBO and for GERD is the individual approach where the patient is seen
as a complete blank white sheet of paper separate from any other patient. That’s how it should be in medicine. People shouldn’t be treated like paint by
numbers. It just doesn’t work like that, folks. If you are going to see a practitioner, don’t
come to me because you know my clinic, again I’ll say it, is finished end of November. You need to find someone who can offer you
a holistic approach for this kind of a problem. I can definitely see a connection with esophageal
reflux disease and small intestinal bowel overgrowth. Now you’re saying, “All right, mate, you’ve
given us the problem. Now give us the solution.” Well, the solution is to work on the SIBO. Try and get rid of these bad bacteria in the
small intestine. Have a look at a product that’s going to work
not just for bacteria but for fungal because, don’t forget, we’ve spoken about SIFO, small
intestinal fungal overgrowth. when you’re going to take a supplement, make sure that
it will hit bacteria and fungus at the same time. You need a broad-spectrum product that’s going
to do that. I’m not going to be banging in drums or blowing
whistles or trying to promote myself, but the Candida Remove I designed, I think it
was in 2013, was designed for SIFO and SIBO. Taking something… don’t have to take my
pills. I mean you can take anyone’s product, but
try and target the issue you’ve got with the SIBO as well as work on the diet and lifestyle
to reduce the GERD problem that you’ve got, the reflux disease. We’ve spoken about that in the previous video
I did. Please watch the video The Real Cause of Acid
Reflux and How to Get Rid of It. I think it’s a 14-minute video. I’d really like you to watch that video if
you haven’t seen it. In fact, that video should be seen, ideally,
before this one. Then you’ll understand the concepts of what
I’m trying to say about reflux disease. If you’ve had reflux disease a while and then
you develop more bowel issues, get a stool test done. Please go and get a comprehensive stool analysis
done to find out what you’ve got lurking inside your gut. Many people say to me, “Waste of time. I want to get a breath test.” I agree. Get a breath test, a proper one by a reputable
company, and get a comprehensive stool analysis. Get all the facts. Try and find out what the heck is going on. If you really want to do a proper job, get
some blood counts done too, kidney function, liver function, things like that. Smart idea. If you get a bit of testing done, you can
often pinpoint some key issues. Generally, you’ll find a bacteria sitting
there that needs nuking, a bacteria or a fungus. Make sure that you go on a proper program
that’s going to last four to six weeks to clear this mess up. Wait a few weeks. Treat again if so need be, and then, down
the track, retest to see what’s going on. To go on medications for blocking acid, it’s
not a good idea. It’s not a good idea. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t forget to click on the link if you want

  • Very interesting and informative. Thanks so much ! If we do take yr medication for sibo should we eliminate certain foods ?

  • Since you have been a natural pathic doctor for many years my question is, I have read where approximately 70% of Americans currently use prescription drugs. In your opinion what percentage of drugs do you feel are really necessary?

  • Since I have many solid reasons to think I have candida overgrowth (fecal body odor and toenail fungus, among many others), I am going to start with oregano oil. So, I know how much I have to take everyday, but I don't know for how many days, weeks, or months. Could you help me with that information? Thanks!

  • You are my favorite doctor, I'm living in Bali. I hope I found your channel years ago maybe now I'm struggling free from my digestive issues, but recently I feel better by changing life style and healthy diet and have some therapy and by natural approach for healing.. I'm interested to your products but sad I can't buy it as I need to have import license to buy drugs from abroad even just one bottle.

  • I took rifaximin for SIBO and my intestine is worse. Is this a sign of Candida in my intestines? I have a chronic candida on my penis and a toenail fungus. I already tried coloidal silver and made it worse. I have LPR and SIBO. Before I get these problems of gastritis and reflux, I already had candida on my penis. Could Candida be causing all of this?
