Though most patients improve with the SIBO treatments outlined in Level 1 and 2 of the SIBO Mastery Program, practitioners are often faced with difficult SIBO patients in practice.
SIBO can be just one layer of a complex case. Multilayered patients can present with SIBO, food and supplement reactions, anxiety, mitochondrial and immune deficits, as well as stealth infections and Dysautonomia.
In this course, Dr Jacobi presents her approach to untangling this complex web. This course is a deep dive into all the greatest hits of functional gut disorders that often underlie chronic SIBO cases. This course also features 2 interactive live sessions with your presenter Dr Jacobi.
Propel your knowledge to expert level and feel confident to treat even the toughest gut problems by enrolling in SIBO Advanced Case Management today.

LESSON 1 Symptom Management: Constipation, bloating, reflux
The symptoms of SIBO do not always immediately resolve with treatment of bacterial overgrowth. Often, patients want relief sooner. This lesson covers specific treatment of commonly seen SIBO symptoms such as bloating, constipation, and reflux
Learning objectives: 1. Understand the different treatment options for constipation: laxatives, exercises, enemas, and more 2. Beat the Bloat: Identify and treat the different causes of bloating 3. Learn the techniques of calming the burn of chronic reflux and nausea
LESSON 2 Healing Leaky Gut, Food Allergies, SIFO
Patients often develop leaky gut as SIBO can cause intestinal permeability. The resulting translocation of an antigen across the intestinal barriers can cause a cascade of symptoms such as food allergies, skin rashes, and other systemic problems. IN this lesson, the comprehensive treatment of leaky gut as well the treatment of underlying drivers, such as SIFO, is discussed.
Learning objectives: 1. Master the understanding of leaky gut and its resulting symptoms 2. Food Allergies: when and how to test 3. Understand SIFO and its many ways of manifesting
LESSON 3: Food Intolerances: Salicylates, Histamine, Sulfur, Oxalates
Due to the damaging effects of SIBO on the small intestinal lining and microbiome, food intolerances often present in our SIBO patients. This lesson covers the most commonly seen food intolerances and how to treat them in clinical practice.
Learning objectives: 1. Understand the clinical implications of histamine intolerance 2. Manage salicylates and sulfur intolerances 3. Understand the causes of oxalate sensitivity
LESSON 4 Large Bowel Imbalances
While the small intestine is our focus while treating SIBO, we must not forget the large intestine and its contribution to digestive health. Patients frequently present with dysbiotic states in both small and large intestine simultaneously. Microbial imbalances in the colon can cause symptoms similar to SIBO and can contribute to the overall clinical picture. In this lesson, practitioners learn to interpret stool tests and treat common dysbiotic LI patterns as well as restore a healthy microbiome
Learning objectives 1. Understand stool test interpretation – digestive markers and microbial patters 2. Confidently treat bacterial, fungal, and protozoal overgrowth 3. Restore your patient’s microbiome
LESSON 5 Chronic SNS activation and the ENS: working with the anxious patient
The function of the enteric nervous system includes the innervation of the small and large intestine. It is involved in motility, secretions, and pain sensation. This lesson focusses on the “brain in the gut” as well as the role of the autonomic nervous system in the development of digestive disorders. Chronically anxious patients often have a harder time overcoming SIBO and other gut disorders. Learn effective techniques that will help your patient to feel better faster.
Learning objectives: 1. Understand the role of the vagus nerve and the enteric nervous system 2. Chronic Anxiety and how to cultivate the “Rest and Digest” 3. Understand techniques such as gut-centred hypnotherapy, trauma work, EFT, and more
LESSON 6 The SIBO Matrix- Understanding the underlying drivers of digestive dysfunction and systemic manifestations
In this lesson, important aspects of the obstacles to healing are discussed in the context of SIBO such as inflammation, genomic profiles: SNPs, acid-base balance, and detoxification impairments
Also covered are naturopathic strategies to overcome these obstacles such as hydrotherapeutic home treatment prescriptions to increase the vitality of your patient
Learning objectives: 1. Understand the drivers of chronic SIBO 2. Recognise the most important genomic contributions to chronic digestive problems 3. Understand the concept of “emunctories” -- Identify and treat detox impairments
LESSON 7 Overview Syndromes Associated with SIBO: Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, POTS, Stealth infections, CIRS
SIBO can be a consequence, rather than the cause, of chronic disease patterns and syndromes. This lesson provides an overview of commonly seen chronic syndromes that can impair your patient’s healing
Learning objectives: 1. Identify chronic disease patterns that have SIBO as an underlying driver 2. Understand the complexity of Mast Call Activation Syndrome 3. Learn how chronic systemic infections herald overall immune dysfunction
LESSON 8 Case Studies
IN this final lesson, Dr Jacobi highlights concepts learned throughout the course through case studies she’s had over the many years of treating SIBO.
Learning objectives: 1. See examples of complex cases through real-life case studies 2. Understand how to prioritize your treatment approaches in complex cases 3. Gain a deeper understanding and knowledge beyond the SI.
Dr Jacobi is a U.S. trained naturopathic physician with over 20 years clinical experience in treating functional digestive disorders. She has been on multiple online summits and lectures nationally and internationally about the assessment and treatment of SIBO.
