Looking for the root cause with her patients:

Karly focuses on finding the root cause of complex gut issues such as SIBO, IBS, IBD and infections.
Her personalised methods are designed to bridge the gap for clients with imbalances beyond the reach of diet and lifestyle alone.

As a former sufferer and as someone who has seen their close loved ones also suffer, she understands the daily struggles of a life with chronic digestive symptoms and the practicalities of what is required to get your health back on track.

Karly shares how a typical client healing journey can take anywhere from 6 to 12+ months and follows her personalised methods of diagnosing and prescribing.

IBS – The Most Common Digestive Complaint in the World

A study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology in 2003 showed that 84% of irritable bowel syndrome patients had SIBO. Leading SIBO researcher and gastroenterologist Dr Mark Pimentel states ‘most of IBS is actually SIBO’.

One in five Australians have IBS. It is the most common digestive complaint in the world. Many people have these symptoms due to SIBO.

Why is SIBO a Problem?

The small intestine is simply not meant to have a large number of bacteria present. Its most important function is to absorb nutrients from our food rather than having them broken down by bacteria. This is why people with SIBO can experience uncomfortable symptoms and nutrient deficiencies – the small intestine is simply not equipped to deal with bacteria.
