I would highly recommend Dr. Ibarra if you have IBS and/or SIBO. It is a stubborn disease and it takes a lot of patience to get through it, but she helped me do it.
Naturalmeddoc is the place to go. If you have any signs of changes in your body or going through pre-menopause or menopause, I highly recommend utilizing their services. The doctors are amazing and my life has drastically improved since I have been under their care. Highly highly recommended.
Great place. They really work hard to get your problems fixed. Less expensive than I would have expected.

Scottsdale Health Concerns

Approximately 20% of the world population has been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) at one point in their life. Scottsdale has a population of approximately 258,064; therefore approximately 51,164 individuals experience IBS issues.

In addition to causing unwanted symptoms, IBS and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) can lead to malabsorption which over time can lead to deficiencies of iron and B12, often resulting in anemias.   Another common deficiency is vitamin D. Fat soluble vitamins like vitamin D are not absorbed efficiently in SIBO.  Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting our immune system, our thyroid function, and mood, among many other things.

If you wake up one day asking yourself what happened to my energy, why am I so anxious, why am I gassy, or bloated all the time, it’s time to get checked for SIBO.

Natural Med Doc is the premier IBS and SIBO specialist in Scottsdale. Call us for a free phone consultation with a health advisor today!

What are the benefits of knowing your Small Intestine Bacteria Levels?

Having healthy levels of bacteria in your gut is the key to a happier life.

Given that bacteria is responsible for maintaining your body’s digestive balance (also called Gastrointestinal system), it is crucial to keep your bacteria at a balanced level so that you can maintain a healthy body at all times.

Even healthy bacteria in the wrong location or in large quantities can cause an issue, which is the case in SIBO. The majority of our gut bacteria, should be housed in the large intestine.

That being so, here are the top three benefits of having a healthy digestive tract:

  • Hormone Balance: SIBO or other gut dysfunctions can increase inflammation in the gut, inflammation in the gut can then lead to hormone imbalances. For example, an increase in cortisol, estrogen, 5-alpha-reductase (a hormone that influences testosterone production). Common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance would be changes in the menstrual cycle, acne, hair loss, and insomnia.
  • Nutrient Absorption: Overgrowth of gut bacteria associated with SIBO and IBS can interfere with optimal digestion leading to a decreased absorption of nutrients. Although all nutrients may be affected, the most significant deficiencies include, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin B12, Folate, essential fatty acids, magnesium, and SAM. Poor nutrient absorption not only contributes to unwanted symptoms such as low energy, but can also cause a more serious impact on immune function, premenstrual syndrome symptoms, and disease process.
  • Neurotransmitter Production: If you have SIBO you're likely experiencing anxiety or depression, or a combination of each. There is bi-directional communication between our brain and our gut via the vagus nerve, this is known as the gut-brain axis. That is because our gut has a role in neurotransmitter production. Examples of neurotransmitters produced in the gut are GABA, serotonin, and dopamine.

FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

Do you take insurance?

Unfortunately, we do not know any other naturopathic doctors in Arizona that take insurance and deliver the same quality of care we do. We are a cash-based medical practice that goes above and beyond for each patient. This has allowed us to get better results and solve unwanted health symptoms that many patients have been dealing with for decades. Cost varies based on the patient’s needs.

*Please Note: We do accept HSA cards.

How do I treat IBS and SIBO?

IBS is treatable and curable! We utilize in-depth comprehensive panels to assess gut health and develop individualized treatment plans to help resolve your symptoms and heal your digestive tract.

We recommend scheduling a free phone consultation to discuss further. Each individual has different needs and requires a tailored solution to treat IBS and/or SIBO.

Additional Resources:

Do you run labs through insurance?

Yes, we are able to run labs through your insurance. We also offer affordable cash-based labs.

Do we have a guarantee?

The human body is very complex. Hence why our traditional cookie cutter medical system leaves millions of individuals with health concerns.

This is also most likely why you are reaching out to us today.

Therefore, we can’t guarantee results since what works for someone may not necessarily work for you.

However, we can promise you that the care we provide you WILL NOT be the same care we provide someone else. We provide personalized medical attention using the latest research and trends that exists. We encourage you to watch some of our videos and/or read some of our blog articles to better understand how our doctors think.

What nutrient deficiencies do you look for?

The nutrient deficiencies evaluated on each patient’s initial blood panel highly depends on their concerns and history. A few nutrients commonly assessed are vitamin D, B12, folate, and Iron.

More extensive nutrient panels are available on request or will be recommended based on your individual case.
