I mentioned the causes. Of course, once the bacteria settles in small intestines, it impairs gut motility so your whole digestive system gets screwed up. But those are the consequences, not the reasons. I listed all the reasons I know in my answer.

I don't think they got SIBO. My more specific question is what disease/disorders lead to overgrowth of bacteria? Because if you realize it, bacteria tend to come back after they've been taken out by antibiotics. Meaning, some sort of disease/disorder leads to SIBO, and SIBO appears to simply be a symptom of a much more complex disease/disorder.

Sometimes it is "the good" bacteria though, just in the wrong spot/intestines.

maybe the good bacteria eventually balanced back out because they never had grains/sugar to feed the bad bacteria? Do you think it would have even been an issue back then?

If I have it and we will know soon, they probably died from it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVfmUfr8VPA the bacteria were stronger probably, and we didnt have the capabilities we have know to treat ourselves. Like information the internet provides. Im sure it was a slow, painful starvation type death. I probably have a mix of both from a bout of gastroenteritis while following a strict IF protocol and not eating enough during my sickness (sleeping too much)

  1. According to Mark Pimentel, 84% (or less, I forgot the exact number) of all SIBO cases are caused by acute gastroenteritis (hydrogen-producing bacteria).

  2. Anorexics get it (methane-producing bacteria) while fasting/not eating enough.

  3. Other causes - antibiotic use followed by SAD diet, etc.

My question is - since it is so common, what did Hunter-Gatherers use to treat SIBO?
