Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
Put simply, it is a reflux of bacteria from the large intestine into the small intestine via the ileocecal valve. The bacteria normally live happily in the colon and we want them there. We do not want them to migrate from their home base (since it’s so warm and cozy in the colon after all…wink wink) In the case of SIBO, we have a case of the wrong place “always at the wrong time”. The bacteria aren’t bad guys, they’ve just lost their way.
What symptoms can I expect to have with SIBO?
Here is the short list:
Why should I “give a crap” about SIBO if I don’t have symptoms but test positive?
Is my SIBO diagnosis my fault?
The small intestine has many protections against bacterial colonization:
Am I at risk for developing SIBO? If you answer “yes” to any of these, then you most certainly are!
How do you diagnose SIBO:
Breath test that measures hydrogen and methane gases over a 3 hour period using lactulose to provoke.
How do I treat SIBO?!
Midwives are so selfless and giving. They provide a safe, intimate way to experience the birth of a child. Our local midwives share their talents, gifts and knowledge with each life they help bring into the world. We want to show our gratitude by sponsoring a Midwife Appreciation Luncheon.
Here's your chance to thank your midwife for participating in one of the most important events for your family. Let's reach out to our favorite midwife and make sure they know how much we appreciate all their selfless work.
Please let us know who you would like to invite. We want to say thank you from the bottom of our babies little butts! And we don't want to miss anyone! Please call 801-486-4226

Along with our existing private treatments, we are now proud to offer community acupuncture sessions.
What does that mean?
You will experience the amazing benefits of acupuncture in the same room with others. (we keep the number at a maximum of 3 people in one room).
This model doesn't mean a lack of privacy but rather an opportunity to take time to relax with family, friends and community. This enables us to provide affordable treatments for those interested in trying a series of acupuncture sessions.
Community acupuncture is also a great way to meet new people with similar health goals!
How much does it cost?
In order to participate in this community experience, you must first be an existing acupuncture patient. The one time first visit fee is $65 for a one hour visit which includes an initial intake and full consultation. Following that appointment you will be eligible for the community acupuncture sessions which are priced at $35/hour session.
What are the dates?
The following dates will be available for existing acupuncture patients
January 12th and 26th
February 9th, and 23rd
March 9th and 23rd
Please call 801-486-4226 and schedule your appointment as soon as possible!
Space is limited to 6 patients per Saturday
