Portland Natural Medicine Inc. is also the home of SIBO Testing Center . Some of the physicians at our clinic specialize in evaluation and treatment for people with SIBO.

What is SIBO?

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a bacterial colonization of the small intestine. These bacteria normally colonize the large intestine, but not the small intestine. When the bacteria overgrow in the small intestine, they often lead to a number of symptoms and can interfere with normal digestion and absorption of food. SIBO can result in damage to the lining of the small intestine, causing intestinal permeability (commonly referred to as Leaky Gut Syndrome).
