Alon Blumgart is a clinical Naturopath and Nutritionist with a Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy (BHSc) from the Southern School of Natural Therapies.
During his studies, Alon developed a passion for gut health and the microbiome. He went on to be accepted into the Bioceuticals Internship Program, where he developed a product concept specific for small intestine bacteria overgrowth (SIBO).
Alon enjoys guiding his patients to improve their health by helping them implement practical, fad-free, evidence-based diet and lifestyle habits, as well as using herbal and nutritional supplementation based on the most current evidence available. He aims to treat the underlying drivers of health conditions, rather than just focussing on symptoms.
SIBO causes inflammation both in the gut and systemically and is notoriously difficult to treat, with high relapse rates, so finding new treatment protocols for SIBO is hugely beneficial.
Research is still emerging, however with the current evidence at hand, we are starting to get a solid understanding of the exact mechanisms behind this interesting food intolerance, which is often misdiagnosed and underestimated due to its multifaceted symptom presentation.
