SIBO, otherwise known as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, is a condition that occurs when an excessive amount of bacteria colonizes the small intestine. Unlike the healthy gut microbiome that lives in the large intestine, an influx of bacteria in the small intestine can lead to bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and a host of other flow-on side effects.

The launch coincides with the release of a March 2022 article from Time Magazine on the condition. Their research suggested that SIBO is still a widely underdiagnosed condition, despite the fact that it is now believed to be the chief cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which approximately 11% of people worldwide suffer from.
Conscious Medicine is at the forefront of treating this rampant but often misunderstood condition. They suggest that any patient in the region who is experiencing prolonged digestive difficulties should contact them to get clear on what is the root cause.

Prior to treatment, Conscious Medicine will comprehensively assess a patient’s overall health and lifestyle to get to the root cause of the condition. They will also help patients learn exactly what SIBO is, and what symptoms of SIBO are manifesting in their bodies. From there, they will develop a specific treatment plan, which will typically include diet modifications.
To take the guesswork out of medicine, they also run a number of lab tests to establish a full health profile for their patients.
Conscious Medicine is a leading functional health clinic in Gwinnett County. They have been serving and restoring health back to the local community since 2015.
