Both SIBO and candida are signs that something is off balance in the intestines. If this wrong balance results in a candida overgrowth, we call it candida; if this wrong balance results in bacterial overgrowth, we call it SIBO. But both are the result of the same underlying imbalance.
That’s why both can be cured, or at least alleviated, by adapting your diet.
In severe cases, the retard pills which I described earlier might be used to deliver medication to the right place in the colon. Fecal transplants could also be used to restore balance, but as far as I know this treatment is still in an experimental stage.
In all cases, eating more healthily is key to both achieving and maintaining improvement. This is a matter of logic. It’s underlined by the observation that SIBO and candida are much more prevalent in the USA than anywhere else in the world, and that they rise when a country switches to more USA-like eating habits.
