“It's not your fault if your kids mess up, but you are responsible for caring for them.  It's not your fault if your marriage didn't work, but it is your responsibility to understand why.  It's not your fault that food manufacturers make addictive foods, but .. 

it is your responsibility to avoid them

It's not your fault that you've gained weight due to a metabolic issue, but it is your responsibility to heal it.  It's not your fault that someone brought cake into the office, but is your responsibility not to eat it, if you're on a detox/special diet

My most successful clients take personal responsibility for their actions.  My least successful clients disown their responsibility.  Fault induces guilt and shame.  Responsibility empowers you.  If you conflate the two, you'll fall victim to external circumstances and will be stuck in inertia.  Responsibility makes you feel in control.  Because

you are more than you believe”     ~ Dana James

Something I've thought a lot about these past few months.  We all have (or have had) something health-wise to deal with.  With all of the conflicting information out there, it can be hard to figure out what's wrong, and at times a bummer to go through the process of fixing it

But through it all, I'm forever in awe of how beautifully and wonderfully we've been made.  How every piece of our body has an important role to play.  How it's always working to weeble wobble itself back into balance.

All it needs from us is a helping hand

Today, a continuation of a short series about SIBO

Part I covered what SIBO is and highlighted the amazing set of janitors that work overtime to keep our small intestines neat and tidy.  They have a big job!

Part II discussed the primary and secondary symptoms of SIBO, along with its ties to other conditions

Underlying Causes of SIBO

What in the world could be causing SIBO?  Turns out, there could be many underlying reasons, and these are four of the biggest

Problems with the Ileocecal Valve – Between the colon (large intestine) and the small intestine is a really important valve whose job is to keep the contents of the colon, in the colon.  If it's having trouble, then the bacteria we talked about in Part I can easily make their way into the small intestines

But what, you may wonder, causes it to become weak?  In most cases .. constipation

An aside about constipation – Our colons were designed to be a transport unit.  But when we have one (or fewer) bowel movements a day, it's acting like more of a storage unit instead.  In fact, someone who has just one bowel movement a day is storing the residual of six meals in their colon at all times. People with less than one a day?   They could be holding 10-12 (or more) meals

This is unfortunate for a whole host of reasons

Toxicity –  Our bodies are always clearing toxins.  A big part of what ends up in our colon is the toxicity that's been pulled out of the liver, traveled through the small intestines, and is waiting to be released.  Because the walls of the colon are permeable, if the waste isn't being cleared, it will be re-absorbed and end up right back in our bloodstream

Pressure on the Ileocecal Valve – When we're using the colon as a storage unit, there's constant pressure on the ileocecal valve.  Which can eventually lead to failure.  Thus the migration of the bacteria.  Thus the SIBO

All SIBO isn't tied to constipation.  A couple of other triggers ..

Chronic Inflammation – The result of pathogens, food sensitivities, or diseases such as Celiac or Scleroderma.  Because of the inflammation they cause, the Ileocecal Valve can't close properly.  It's too swollen

Heavy to moderate alcohol use – As mentioned in Part II, 90% of alcoholics suffer from SIBO

(A quick note: For all of the people in my life who have their glass of wine (or homemade brew) every night, know I love you .. but here goes)

Even if we have just one drink, it takes our body about three days to fully recover and restore balance.  Therefore, someone falls into the category of “moderate drinker” if they drink every third day (or more).  Certainly, there's the amount to consider, as well as the frequency.  There's a big difference between having a glass of wine or a beer every third day, a six-pack every other day, or a pint of Jack Daniel's every night

We also know there's a difference between someone having a glass of wine or a bottle of beer because so many people have problems with gluten (and beer typically contains gluten).  Not to mention, the combination of gluten and alcohol increases challenges with gluten by ten-fold.  This alone can be an issue

One must also consider the amounts.  The person who's drinking a glass of wine, compared to someone who's drinking the entire bottle.  Or the six-pack every-other-day that turns into a nightly occurrence

From the perspective of SIBO, these are the factors that are considered a significant amount and will put someone in the 90%.  The 90% of people, whether they want to consider themselves an alcoholic or just a heavy drinker, that will be challenged with SIBO

Antacids and Proton Pump Inhibitors – If you're someone who's struggled with symptoms of heartburn (aka acid reflux or GERD), you may also want to be tested for SIBO.  Especially if you regularly take antacids or have been prescribed a proton pump inhibitor (PPI)

One school of thought says, “You have heartburn because there's too much stomach acid churning around down there.  We're going to give you a PPI to help you feel better.”

With every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction, and it's not always what was intended.  Certainly, PPIs do minimize stomach acid, but at a significant cost to the small intestines.  Stomach acid serves as a preventative for keeping bacteria out of the small intestine.  Once it's been reduced, opportunistic bacteria that would typically be eliminated, go on to survive an flourish in their new home

The other school of thought?  “The reason you have heartburn isn't that your stomach acid is too high. Instead, it's too low.”

Huh?  Once stomach acid is low, it's almost a perfect storm.  Our bodies will have a hard time breaking down proteins specifically, but also minerals and B vitamins.  Undigested proteins lead to allergies and inflammation.  These, coupled with slower motility of our digestive system – remember the waves of electrical activity that move through our intestines – from Part I?

They all create a very unfortunate environment.  One where gas produced by the bacteria in the small intestine will put enough pressure on the small intestine and stomach to push the acid from the stomach and into the esophagus

It's an awfully uncomfortable feeling

What testing options are available, and what are they looking for?  What wellness protocol should someone consider if their SIBO test was positive?

During this series, I've been featuring recipes that follow the low FODMAP diet, which is often recommended to someone recovering from SIBO

My breakfast arsenal includes the meals we've eaten enough times that they're committed to memory.  A few?  Bacon (always cooked in the oven), some sort of fruit salad (berries and yogurt, with granola for topping), greek yogurt pancakes, or eggs

In the egg category, they're mostly a simple scramble, or if I'm feeling fancy, this spinach and cheese strata is a favorite. Lately, however, if I have an extra fifteen or twenty minutes at my disposal, I've taken a liking to baked eggs.  The first time I tried them, I was charmed by how wonderful something so simple could taste.  These days, I'd add to the list: vegetarian, gluten/grain-free, as good for a weeknight dinner as it is a weekend brunch.

Oh, and did I mention they sure are pretty?

This idea is: make a filling, crack a couple of eggs, beat the whites, and bake.  You could do your veggie (or other) filling the night before and have them in the oven the next morning in under five minutes.  (Bake while blow-drying?)

While I used simple veggies here, might I suggest

A spicy bean base with avocado and salsa on top

A goat cheese and herb base with creme fraiche on top

Any seasonal veggie with spices and cheese

Or even a maple-kissed version with something savory to complement the sweetness?

    It’s such an interesting discussion about the things we eat in our diet and the choices we make when it comes to food. I really believe that much of life is about balance. The ability to enjoy the things in life because we were made to enjoy them. But at the same time the realization that you can have too much of a “good thing.” As for the SIBO that whole part about the constipation made me think about my daughter as she was in the hospital for constipation clearing her out for four days. It really did a number on her and made her think she was having a UTI when she was not. Just crazy. The recipe does look pretty delicious and fun though. Just reminds me I need to get out my cast iron skillet and use it more often. 🙂

    I agree that there is definitely a difference between something being your responsibility and being your fault, although the two definitely do interlink at times, like you said when a kid makes mess its not neccessarily your fault but it is your job to look after them. On another note I was interested to hear more about SIBO and how certain foods can aggravate the condition and make the symptoms worse. Which is why this baked egg dish is SIBO friendly but is also super delicious and best of all ITS VEGETARIAN YAY! I am excited to try it out tonight, I even brought some eggs and veggies in preparation, I am going to make it with broccoli, cabbage and green beans 🙂

    I LOVED this post. Fault and responsibility are different. We can not always control what happens to us but we CAN control how we respond to it. There is a sense of empowerment I agree, we owe it to ourselves really. And the information about SIBO was very useful, as I will try to bear this in mind. Our bowel movement is a topic we don’t discuss enough! The egg and veggie dish looks scrumptious and filling. I will deffo try that out at home soon! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    I had no idea about SIBO but you’ve shared an extensive piece of information. Have bookmarked your other SIBO posts for reading at night. I’m always up for any recipes with eggs and the baked eggs with veggies look incredibly delicious and colorful. It will be perfect breakfast/brunch treat on the weekends!

    Having health issue’s myself that I have been naturally managing for about 6 years now, I cannot stress enough how important our food choices are in battling diseases of any kind! Eggs are a huge staple in my diet and this baked egg and veggie dish sounds like it’s going to fit right into my food plan and I can’t wait to make it!

    Totally agree on the responsibility part – especially when it comes to processed produce. I sometimes do buy frozen stuff and do not churn every mayonnaise I use, but I do try to avoid processed stuff – and do not understand why people buy e.g. pancake mix – it’s like three ingredients everyone has at home….
    The recipe is – as always – great. During the week, I stick to fresh fruit in yoghurt and granola for breakfast, but when travelling or on Sundays, I eat ‘worse’, so a nice egg dish is just perfect; and the veggies will do their part, anyway.

    This looks so yummy (and pretty). And what a great thing to put together the night before and then just throw in the oven while you finish getting ready.

    Wow, that was a very educational article, I learnt a lot from this post, Ali. I think far more people suffer from various forms of digestive aliments than we think.
    I love baked eggs of all kinds and this looks amazing, and to me. With the veggies, it would be perfect for any meal of the day, I reckon.

    I hate this part: “It’s not your fault that someone brought cake into the office, but is your responsibility not to eat it, ” hahaha Truth is, it’s hard for me to resist food. LOL

    Anyway, my kids like egg recipes and this looks gorgeous. Will cook this for them this weekend when I get back 😀

    Yum! We have chickens and a garden, most of these I can pick fresh. I am trying to live a healthier lifestyle and this will be my next recipe to try. Thanks for the info!

    Great recipe ! I always wonder how people get the perfect egg yolk sitting on top of the egg white. Now I know thanks to your tip! Separate the egg white and mix with yogurt first before adding the yolk on top! I should try it next time!

    I have heard of SIBO before, but never really quite understood what it was. Thank you for taking the time to explain it, and what the dietary implications are. And this dish looks delicious! I might have to try this out sometime.

    Indeed, I discovered baked eggs relatively recently (a couple of years back). I love it but I haven’t made any for quite a while! So thank you for a beautiful reminder. I love easy recipes which basically don’t need a long description.

    additional details for SIBO, that I’m not aware of. Love the recipe, since I like eggs, And maybe I can add mushrooms to it. Goat cheese will really be great for this one. A really good savory dish.

    I never realized the power of eggs until we moved to England and started keeping our own chickens. The deep orange yolks and taste of free-range eggs are unbelievable. Eggs are now my go-to supper with kale and rice or any vegetables when all four kids have been doing activities and time is running short.

  • Reply Jenny October 24, 2018 at 3:24 pm

    My favorite baked egg dish is Shakshuka. I make a batch in my big Dutch oven with ten eggs and then divide it up into 5 individual portion containers to eat for breakfast every weekday morning. Just reheat at work or in the morning and you are good to go!

    It sounds like a great weekend brunch meal (since I’ll never wake up early enough to make this during the weekdays). also, I could eat anything with sour cream on it… I can’t be the only one right?!

    Interesting and informative article and the recipe looks great! I have had the doctors say heartburn was high acid but thankfully I knew better. Chronic stress was causing low acid and lack of enzyme activity to digest the food properly.

    That presentation is amazing! I typically just cook my eggs on the stovetop with veggies and do a scramble that way. I also have a favorite baked egg recipe that includes homemade tomato sauce on top. I might just have to add some veggies and combine the two!

    I never eat eggs for breakfast at home (not a common thing here in Argentina) but then, I can’t wait to have them whenever we go to hotels with a breakfast buffet! So I guess I should be eating eggs in the morning and give this deliciousness a try!

    I made these for breakfast this morning and they were wonderful. I happened to have three kinds of cheese: sharp cheddar, and local creamy jack, and freshly grated parmesan. It was so good! This could easily become a stable for Sunday breakfast.
