Are You Ready to Kick SIBO to the Curb?

What's it REALLY Like to Have SIBO?

  • Overwhelmed by too much advice. You can find websites and groups dedicated to SIBO - but how do you know what’s based in science or actually effective (without making yourself into a guinea pig!)?

  • Your doctor doesn’t understand. Many MDs haven’t even heard of SIBO, let alone understand the intricacies of testing, treating, and preventing relapses.

  • Stuck on a restricted diet. You finally found the 7 foods that don’t flare your symptoms… and now that's ALL you’ve eaten for the last 6 months. It’s not sustainable, but you don’t know what else to do.

  • SIBO feels like a life sentence. Getting better - and staying that way - feels impossible. You’re scared that feeling this bad, all the time, is your forever.

  • Worrying about relapsing (or already have). You finally start to feel better - and then 2 weeks later you’re WORSE than before. And every time you relapse, it takes longer and more effort to get to feeling better again.

  • Surrounded by failed treatment attempts. Your medicine cabinet is full of half-empty bottles from everything you’ve tried that didn’t work - and you’ve tried every awful diet, too! No matter how dedicated you are, nothing helps enough.

  • You just want some relief. Yes, you want to know the root cause and cure your SIBO for good - but you also just want to be able to button your pants tonight! You need quick solutions for bloating, constipation, and diarrhea that won’t hinder your healing.

  • No clue what the next step is. Do I start with a diet? Supplements? Do I stop the diet during treatment? What if I only feel a little better - do I try something else? What the heck is a prokinetic????

Success story!!! I have been battling SIBO for almost a year (maybe longer but didn’t pay too much attention to my symptoms).  I have learned so much about GI and motility during these past 8 months. Have taken the SIBO SOS Recovery Roadmap® Course, great source of knowledge. It helped me understand SIBO better. Every time. I talked to my functional medicine doctor and my GI had lots of questions. They were impressed with everything I knew about the condition.

Don’t give up!! If one treatment doesn’t work, try another but finish each treatment. Get tested after each treatment to see if it is working. There is hope my friends!!



Shivan Sarna, Host of SIBO SOS®

I’m Shivan Sarna and over the past 20 years
you may have seen me as a TV Host
(especially if you like shopping). So how did I end up at SIBO SOS? 

After a lifetime of digestive problems, I was diagnosed with Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth in 2015. I was so excited to finally have a name for the symptoms that made me miserable - but I was quickly very frustrated by how hard it was to get access to reliable SIBO information, or even an appointment with a doctor who had experience treating SIBO. I set out to get answers about SIBO for myself - but along the way, I met hundreds (and then thousands) of other people like you who had the same problems: How do we find experts who really understand SIBO? What do we do if we can’t travel to see one these experts? Will we have to suffer forever? 

I went back to my roots as an advocate and educator focusing on bringing the experts together in one place to teach all of us: that’s how SIBO SOS® was born. 

After finding the answers for myself, I created SIBO SOS®, four summits, and a documentary all about how to heal from SIBO and gut issues. Then I wrote my book, “Healing SIBO” to get the answers to YOU. In your journey to understand, treat, and manage IBS, SIBO, and other digestive issues, I’m your guide, advocate, support, and shoulder to cry on - I’ll give you a nudge, introduce you to the people with the answers, and always be here to encourage you.

I want to save you time, energy and money by giving you the expert answers in a concise way.

Get the answers you need so you can start healing and get back to life!
