The SIBO Doctor Education is committed to teaching healthcare professionals the tools and skills to manage the most advanced gastrointestinal conditions. Our trainings are available worldwide so that even practitioners in areas with few resources have access to the information. We keep our courses current and practical because we want practitioners to gain the skills and expertise to achieve consistent results with their patients.
The SIBO Doctor was founded by Dr. Nirala Jacobi, BHSc, ND. Dr. Jacobi teaches the SIBO courses herself and invites expert physicians to teach additional courses on the advanced management of gastrointestinal disorders.
