SIBO and ED - Is There a Link?
Nearly all our clients experience profound gastrointestinal disturbances, and we tend to assume that these symptoms are a natural part of the body's recovery from an eating disorder.  But what if an imbalance in the gut biome contributed to the development of the eating disorder?  Mirasol is participating in a research project that includes testing clients for the presence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a condition that can cause a variety of symptoms including indigestion, diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pain. Results are preliminary, and treatment is controversial, but the project has generated international interest, and a flood of requests to present on this exciting new area of research into the physiological components of eating disorders.  Click below to view Mirasol Executive Director Diane Ryan's presentation at the 2018 Integrative SIBO Conference in New Orleans.
