William B. Salt II, M.D., IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions

William B. Salt II, M.D.

I'm an M.D. graduate of The Ohio State University and board certified internal medicine and gastroenterologist trained at Vanderbilt University Hospitals, where I also served as a chief resident in medicine. I've had a life-long career interest in IBS and most recently the commonly associated dysfunction of the GI tract (gut) microbiome called, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). I have nearly 40 years of experience caring for patients, teaching medical students and residents in training, and educating other doctors.

I am committed to providing state of the art educational information for my patients and the public intended to inform and empower them, so they can work collaboratively with their health care professionals.

IBS is a functional disease. The term, "functional" means disturbance or dysfunction in how the body works. The ebook explains how and why IBS so commonly occurs with other functional GI conditions (such as heartburn unresponsive to strong acid reducers, upper abdominal pain not caused by an ulcer, and abdominal bloating with or without actual enlargement, called, "distention") and with functional symptom syndromes (such as fibromyalgia, fatigue, chronic headache, back pain, and interstitial cystitis.
