What Are Digestive Disorders?
Your digestive system plays an important part in your body's ability to absorb nutrients and eliminate toxins. So when you have a digestive problem, it can lead to negative effects on your total health and well-being. Chronic digestive disorders can cause symptoms, like nausea, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, constipation, and more. The expert team at Cameron Wellness and Spa specializes in the holistic treatment of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), H. pylori, and more. If you have a digestive problem that has gone undiagnosed or has not responded to standard medical treatments, we encourage you to get in touch with our Salt Lake City, UT office. We can offer a full evaluation along with solutions to encourage your body to heal itself naturally.

Digestive Care FAQ
What happens if SIBO is left untreated?
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is very treatable, but if left unaddressed, can lead to serious complications like dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, and malnutrition. SIBO can recur, even if treated. That’s why it’s so important to have an experienced physician like the members of our team at Cameron Wellness + Spa treat and manage your SIBO.
Can SIBO go away on its own?
No, SIBO doesn’t go away on its own. It needs to be treated by an experienced physician who can recognize the symptoms and prescribe the correct treatment regimen.

There are three different types of IBS, these are:
- IBS-C (IBS with constipation)
- IBS-D (IBS with diarrhea)
- IBS-M/IBS-A (IBS with mixed bowel habits)
IBS can also happen after a GI tract infection (PI-IBS) and after diverticulitis.
