Doctor with Integrative SIBO Program in Los Angeles
Minimize Side Effects of SIBO Antibiotic Treatment
SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) is being diagnosed more often now, in Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills. The conventional medical treatment for SIBO is a short-sighted roller coaster ride of antibiotics; on and off, until you eventually need them again because you are not better. Do you wonder if that kind of treatment could have prolonged side effects, or if there is anything missing from that kind of treatment of SIBO? Does an alternative, integrative doctor have a better solution for the patient with SIBO?
A better kind of doctor for the patient with SIBO
Let's define integrative care. Integrative means that we integrate the many aspects of what your body needs instead of just treating a symptom. All your body parts and systems are considered and integrated into your integrative care. Integrative care will not sacrifice one of your body systems in order to "cure" another, as is often the case in conventional treatment of SIBO.
is a holistic system. It requires face to face time with your integrative doctor. We understand that multiple body systems can play a role in a condition like SIBO.
Your whole body participates in how you arrived at your present condition in the first place. Your specific needs regarding SIBO must be addressed by taking your multiple body systems into consideration. We integrate aspects from your other body systems that may be contributing to the SIBO you have, and may influence your path to wellness success, or failure. We don't sacrifice any other function of your body for the sake of "treatment."
Integrative does not mean including pharmaceuticals into an otherwise holistic, or natural functional medicine system. Beware of specialists that want you to believe that "integrative" means including pharmaceuticals; it doesn't.
Still bloated? Excess gas, constipation, or diarrhea, or all of these? SIBO requires at least 3 aspects of physiological support when considering how your body functions. Using antibiotics as the sole treatment only just touches on one of them. It is incomplete care.
When you have already taken the antibiotics, you can still benefit from what we will do. I'm not saying whether or not you should take any additional pharmaceutical. Whether you use them or not, we will still be able to address the other necessary aspects of why you got SIBO in the first place, and why your previous treatments with only antibiotics have failed. When you come under my care, after having followed other protocols regarding infection, you will get an integrative program to help your body better overcome SIBO. However, we don't treat the infection. Don't come to us with a SIBO diagnosis but having never taken the advice of other doctors who want to cut down the infection itself. We will help your body after that phase of your care is already done.
Without addressing the many aspects of SIBO, as we do in Beverly Hills, your standard SIBO treatment will ultimately fail, and you will wonder when the roller coaster of antibiotics and bloating will ever end.
Contact us today to get started. Much like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), SIBO takes some time for your body to get over, but the great change your entire body experiences will be worth every bit of the time and effort!
