SIBO stands for Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth. While bacteria in your digestive system or "gut" are normal and necessary for the breakdown of foods and absorption of nutrients, the highest concentration is typically in your colon, not the small intestine. When bacteria overpopulate in the small intestine, you might not be able to properly assimilate nutrients from your food. This, in turn, can lead to aggravation of existing chronic health conditions, or painful side effects. If you are experiencing a cluster of these common symptoms, SIBO may be the cause
Lectins: According to a study conducted by Dr. Steven Gundry, a heart surgeon and cardiologist from California, a link has been found between memory loss and proteins called lectins in foods such as cucumbers, tomatoes, whole grains, soy, peppers, sprouted grains and some dairy products.
The “Blood Type Diet” is based on how our blood cells react with lectins in foods. Some experts hypothesize that it's no coincidence the top 8 allergens also contain some of the highest amounts of lectins (including: dairy, egg, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish).
