If you’re using a low-FODMAP diet to keep your SIBO under control, you’re not alone. However, diet on its own does not cure SIBO. In fact, eating a higher-FODMAP diet in combination with your antibiotic protocol leads to more successful eradication of the bacteria.

In this episode, Kelsey and Laura discuss the changing philosophy on SIBO treatment and how that affects the best diet to follow to recover from SIBO.
