Home / About Us

SIBO CLINIC CANADA was founded by Sandy Rideout, Functional Medicine Consultant and Elmer Bernard, CEO and Managing Partner. For more than 20 years, Sandy has researched health and disease in various highly prestigious clinical journals and has been practicing Functional Medicine for 7 years. He is currently consulting with Medical Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors and as well as other health professionals in applying Functional Medicine in their practice to advance the diagnosis and treatment of their patients more effectively.

SIBO CLINIC CANADA was developed to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of SIBO, a common root cause of a multitude of health issues which are so common in our population today. We use the most accurate yet simple to administer SIBO in-home breath test called the "Quintron Easy Sample Breath Test Kit.” Working closely with Medical doctors, Naturopathic doctors, health professionals, and patients, we analyze and interpret test results while ensuring that all factors are considered prior to reaching a final diagnosis.

Our Vision is to become the leaders in SIBO breath testing. We pride ourselves on excellent service while bringing you the very best in accuracy of analysis, concise interpretation, quick turnaround times, and appropriate treatment protocols.

Sandy is the creator of the world’s first and only SIBO Mind Map. This map is categorized and organized in a methodical way that enables all SIBO practitioners to learn, in greater detail, all up to date information on SIBO. This includes its many causes, risk factors, health impacts, links to many diseases/disorders/syndromes, how to prevent relapse, treatment protocols, and much more. The SIBO Mind Map encompasses over 1600 peer-reviewed published scientific papers, giving much credibility to the enormous amount of content contained in the SIBO Mind Map.
