SIBO Due to Chronic Constipation and Sympathetic Dominance

Too many doctors who don’t recognize SIBO

If you’re reading this, it’s most likely because you’re tired of the abdominal pain you’ve been experiencing and the numerous doctors you’ve been to who can’t resolve your health problems. Like so many others, I had been struggling with a multitude of pain and symptoms (abdominal pain, daily GI distress, nausea, heart palpitations, insomnia to name a few) which made it hard to be happy and healthy in daily life. For the last 3 years especially, I’d been to specialists who could only provide expensive diagnostic tests and pills which never got rid of the pains and symptoms, or brought-on different ones. It wasn’t until I found Dr. Marcus Ettinger’s reviews on Yelp that I felt that maybe; there could be someone who could help with my health troubles. I called Dr. Ettinger that same day and he was easy to talk to, he listened to my issues, and I was able to see him that same week!

It’s been 2 months since my first appointment with Dr. Ettinger and I’m compelled to write this review because my health issues are resolved! Marcus Ettinger is a wealth of knowledge who explains to you in easy to relate terms about your treatment, his love of helping people is evident in his practice, and he is effective. Taking that step to make that appointment and take responsibility for my health has changed my life completely for the better. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus Ettinger if you are looking for relief from your pain and symptoms.

Dr. Ettinger’s note: this patient had SIBO that was not properly diagnosed, thus it was never treated. After balancing her electrolytes and treating the SIBO, this patient was supported with specific dietary and lifestyle changes. The main underlying issue that brought on the SIBO was a lifetime of constipation, most likely compounded by a sympathetic dominate state – locked in a fight-flight mode.
