Dr Steven Sandberg Lewis is recognised as a leading practitioner in Naturopathic gastroenterology. He joins Rebecca on The Healthy Gut Podcast to discuss functional gastroenterology and why we need to take a holistic approach to our digestive health. They discuss SIBO, reasons why SIBO treatment might not be working, what to do if you suffer with bloating, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Pro kinetics and laxatives, and much more.

  • Bloating after a clear SIBO test, and what else could be causing it
  • The difference between peristalsis and the migrating motor complex
  • Whether fasting should be part of your SIBO treatment
  • Why, and how, you might use prokinetics and laxatives
  • The effect that Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome has on the ileocecal valve
