Because many doctors and the healthcare system fail to help people achieve health, but are instead focused on delivering prescription drugs, procedures, and other revenue-generating activities, we are taking on more and more aspects of individual health without them–Undoctored.
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, is a common problem that is typically beyond the interests or abilities of most doctors, including gastroenterologists. SIBO can account for fibromyalgia, psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome, and numerous other health conditions. In the Undoctored program, more people are identifying, then reversing, their SIBO and enjoying dramatic health benefits.
We are entering a new age in which the individual has astounding power over health–but don’t count on the doctor or healthcare system to tell you this.
We draw from the health information of the world, collaborate, share experiences, collect data, and show how to apply new health tools to achieve levels of health that you may have thought unattainable. We do all this at a time when conventional healthcare costs have become crippling.
The result: personal health that is SUPERIOR to that obtained through conventional means.
For truly serious engagement in the Undoctored lifestyle of personal health empowerment:
Undoctored Inner Circle:
You know in the Undoctored program, we encourage that people take personal control over their health. If the doctors and the healthcare system did their jobs and provided health in safe, effective, low-cost ways, we wouldn’t need programs like Undoctored. But as you know, the healthcare system is not doing that. They’re in the business of dispensing prescription drugs, and hospital procedures, and other revenue-generating activities. Health was never the intention, at least not in modern times.
Start with the Undoctored book
So we personally work to restore health on our own. We’re going to use natural means, logic, science, tools accessible to us, whether they might be nutritional supplements, a change in diet, or a smartphone app, or collective collaboration on-line — we use all the tools we can, that empower us, in taking back personal control over health.
One of the phenomena I’m seeing, that’s playing out in our Undoctored Inner Circle (that’s the paid membership website, for those of you who are very serious about the Undoctored program and taking back personal control over health), what I’m seeing is that lots of people are coming to us and saying “I have all the signs and symptoms you talk about, that suggest I have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth” (SIBO).
What that means is that dysbiosis, or disrupted bowel flora, has been allowed to ascend, from colon (where bacteria should be confined) all the way up through 20-some feet of small intestine up to the duodenum and stomach. You have, in effect, an infected gastrointestinal tract. That’s a big problem. And it’s a much more common problem than we all thought.
That’s encouraged, by the way, by stress (emotional stress can do it), prior consumption of antibiotics, antibiotics, pesticide and herbicide residues, processed foods, grain consumption, sugar consumption, alcohol consumption — lots of factors in modern diet, modern life, cultivate this ascending infection.
While the Undoctored program (the basic Wild-Naked-Unwashed program detailed in the Undoctored book, Undoctored website and the Undoctored Inner Circle) gets you started, with such things as removal of wheat and grains, and sugars, and high-potency multi-species probiotic, etc.; those do get you started, but some people encounter problems.
The Prebiotic Fiber Test
See the video, on the Undoctored blog or in the Undoctored Inner Circle, that talks about what I call the Prebiotic Fiber Test. If you have an adverse response to prebiotic fibers, particularly within the first 50 minutes, that is a very very confident sign that you have SIBO.
Tell-tale signs of SIBO
There are some other, what I call tell-tale signs of SIBO. That’s also in another video that you can access and watch (on Blog, on Inner Circle), and see if you have the tell-tale signs of SIBO; like unexplained intolerances to food, even things like coffee, or wine, or eggs; that’s new. That can be a tell-tale sign. Or unexplained diarrhea and abdominal discomfort; that can be a sign of SIBO also.
What I see happening, is that people will say “You know, I’ve done all those things and had that unusual response to prebiotics fibers, and went to my doctor, and said I think I have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth — can you do something about it?” And the doctor says “I have no idea what you’re taking about.” Even the gastroenterologist, who is supposed to be an expert of course on bowel flora and bowel health — they’re not — they’re experts in scoping you.
So, what do people do? Well, you could continue to chase doctors, and hope that at least one of them educates themselves sufficiently to deal with this, perhaps a functional medicine or integrative health doctor, but even some of them are not fully up to speed. So what are you supposed to do? If you don’t correct SIBO, you can be left with incapacitating fatigue, and muscle pains, and fibromyalgia. You can have weight loss that stalls and won’t move. You can have psoriasis that doesn’t get any better after an initial response. You can have autoimmune conditions or neurological impairment; serious stuff that plateaus and stops getting any better, even though you’ve done everything else on the Undoctored program right.
Getting SIBO identified, then corrected, is key. What I’m seeing is more and more people doing it on their own. They’re taking presumptive evidence of SIBO and/or conducting their own hydrogen breath test (which you can access), and then, treating it. There’s three general ways to treat it:
- One would be prescription antibiotics, such as Rifaximin, which is very nasty. It carries about a 3% chance of Clostridium difficile (C.diff) enterocolitis, which is a very bad complication.
- There’s herbal antibiotics, which have now been demonstrated to be equivalent or perhaps somewhat superior, superior to prescription antibiotics. You can get these on your own.
- Then there’s the diet that some people call FODMAPs, or a diet completely devoid of prebiotic fibers, but that’s a process that takes months, years; very very restrictive; and has been shown to be helpful in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), not necessarily in SIBO (although the two, IBS and SIBO, are very closely related). That is a path you can follow, but it’s not my first choice.
My first choice, and the choice of many more people who have been discussing this and doing it on the Undoctored Inner Circle, is to choose those herbal antibiotics. There’s two groups you can choose. One is the Candibactin-AR/BR, and there’s another called FC Cidal&Dysbiocide. This is discussed in much greater detail in our Undoctored Inner Circle; how much to take, how long to take it, why antibiotics should be combined with prebiotic fibers (at least in low dose) to increase effectiveness dramatically.
People are doing this. One of the people who did this, for instance, started the FC Cidal&Dysbiocide regimen, and within several days, went from incapacitating fibromyalgia (which had persisted, doing everything else right) to near total relief of this process she’d had for years, as well as accompanying weight loss, feeling better, a change in her facial appearance.
These are the kinds of results we’re seeing in people who are doing it on their own, which I love to hear about because I want everyone to be empowered to safely, yes, but effectively, inexpensively, take back control over personal health. So I’m very very gratified to see that people are actually treating, correcting, and enjoying all the wonderful benefits that come from managing their own small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
If this kind of thing interests you, I invite you to join our conversation in the Undoctored Inner Circle. This is more than something you can gain just by a quick read of something. There’s a lot of knowledge here. There’s some pitfalls you want to be careful of. It helps to have a group of people who are doing the same, or have done it, and done it successfully, and learned how to do it, safe ways to do it, ways to save money doing it, ways to deal with the aftermath, ways to re-cultivate bowel flora afterward. So I invite you to join those conversations, and participate in this wonderful experiment in personal health empowerment.
