About the SIBO Academy

  • How It Started

    As two dietitians who specialize in digestive health, we have been frustrated by a lack of evidence-based, affordable, and reliable SIBO training. We have grown an expertise in SIBO over years of hard work and expensive trainings. We decided that there should be a better and quicker way for dietitians to develop an expertise in this growing practice area. The SIBO Academy is our way of solving that problem.

  • Why SIBO Academy?

    There are other SIBO courses and conferences available and they do have value. However, none are designed for and by Registered Dietitians and, thus, often are not fully compatible with our scope of practice. This is the only source for SIBO information that is specifically designed to make RDs more effective, and that is approved for CPEs by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

  • Who Our Courses Are For

    Our detailed and evidence-based courses are designed by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists to provide information that can be directly applied within our scope of practice. That being said, our courses are also helpful for other nutrition professionals who use a food-first approach.

Who We Are

Alicia and Erin are two Registered Dietitians who hold additional certification in Integrative and Functional Nutrition. We specialize in digestive health in both our private practices and in our work with other care providers. We have a passion for helping other Dietitians improve their knowledge and effectiveness around patients with SIBO.
