Dr. Susie Gronski Testimonial
“I completed Dr. Nikolas Hedberg’s small intestinal bacterial overgrowth lecture series last week. I can tell you that it was very informative and educational. It was 100% worth my time. Dr. Hedberg really knows his stuff. He puts the information in a manner that is easy to comprehend and follow. He also utilizes numerous illustrations to help get his point across. I have attended other courses that Dr. Hedberg offers. They have all been beneficial and have given me tools to further my level of expertise as a functional medicine doctor. I can tell you that this course was one that I enjoyed the most. If you want to be in “the know” when it comes to SIBO, enroll in this course. You have nothing to lose.”
~Dr. Keith Currie, D.C.
I enjoyed watching Dr. Hedberg’s SIBO training and learning how to help my patients overcome this complex condition. Dr. Hedberg is very comprehensive and realistic with all of his trainings and I would recommend any of them. The SIBO training was by far one of the better ones due to the fact I see many cases with SIBO. His protocols have helped me with some of my tougher cases and has allowed me to think about other treatments strategies that I would not have thought of unless I had gone through this course.
