Hi, I'm Dr. DiNezza
Most of my patients have been told that they have a "difficult" or "stubborn" case of SIBO. Some have been told that theirs is the worst their doctor has ever seen. These are the folks who either don't feel better at all or only feel better temporarily and immediately relapse when the "kill phase" of their treatment ends.
So, unsurprisingly, most of my patients feel pretty doomed by the time they find me. Many question their ability to ever heal. I've been told that I'm a "last ditch resort" or a "Hail Mary" more times than I can count.
But, in reality, these people were every bit as capable of healing as any other person.
The problem isn't the patient(s), nor is it SIBO itself. The problem is that the medical community (conventional and holistic alike) has been treating SIBO wrong all this time!
Thankfully, I've cracked the code on SIBO, and I'm sharing all my secrets in the SIBO Hero Practitioner Course.
Your patients and I hope that you join me.

The Elephant In The Room
Your SIBO patients aren't particularly "difficult." Your protocols aren't working because they were built on an inaccurate foundation. You were taught to chase the wrong thing from day one.
We've all heard it before...
"Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth = too many bacteria in the small bowel. Too many bacteria leads to malabsorption, bloating, pain, and stool changes. This might explain up to 84% of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)!"
And, given this story, it's logical to continue to:
"Too many bacteria is the problem, so we need to get rid of the bacteria!"
But, how has this model of SIBO served you and your patients?
My guess is "not well."
Most of the practitioners I've talked to are deeply frustrated by SIBO. They want to help their patients feel better, but that is oftentimes not what happens despite the best of intentions.
Similarly, SIBO patients are frustrated and feel quite hopeless. They've been told that they have a "tough" or "difficult" case one time too many, and now they believe that they'll never feel better.
The reality is that SIBO doesn't have to be frustrating or difficult if you set the right foundation from the get-go. SIBO is not an infection, and we need to stop treating it as though it were one.
