The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.25
Adhesions and SIBO with Larry and Belinda Wurn
Adhesions are a particular risk for people with SIBO, and can often be an underlying cause of SIBO developing. In this episode Rebecca is joined by Larry Wurn LMT and Belinda Wurn, from Clear Passage Physical Therapy to talk all about their important work on adhesions. Belinda co-developed the ‘Wurn technique’ to address adhesions non-surgically after experiencing debilitating chronic pelvic pain. They talk with Rebecca about how adhesions develop and what the risk factors are, such as endometriosis or surgery. Belinda and Larry tell Rebecca more about how solving the problem of adhesions can aid recovery from SIBO.

Connect with Larry and Belinda Wurn
Larry Wurn, LMT is Research Chair at Clear Passage Physical Therapy, a network of physical clinics in the U.S. and U.K. that address internal adhesions non-surgically. Bowel adhesions can slow or stop bacteria from leaving the intestine, preventing medications from resolving SIBO. By addressing adhesions, this natural treatment has provided an effective adjunct to physician’s care for patients with SIBO. Larry has presented to 15,000 physicians and staff at Digestive Disease Week. He was also was a featured speaker at two national conferences of SIBO professionals and the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
Belinda Wurn is Director of Services for Clear Passage. Belinda began developing her work after surgery and massive doses of radiation therapy left her with “frozen pelvis.” Most of her pelvic organs were adhered to each other, leaving her in debilitating pain. Her doctors said that surgery would only cause more adhesions, making things even worse. Unwilling to accept a life of pain, she and her husband, massage therapist Larry Wurn, began to study with teachers in the U.S. and Europe to create their own protocols to relieve adhesions. They combined the most effective techniques of the instructors with whom they studied, over decades refining and creating their own techniques to produce the unique treatment approach they use today.

Extremely interesting podcast…… thank you Rebecca. Have you ever managed to travel to Clear Passage to check if you have adhesions and if they could help with them
Thank you for this….hopefully the final piece of the puzzle after 3 decades of SIBO and searching for answers. Explains away some niggling pains, and other symptoms.
Hmmm thinking a trip to the US is on the cards.
Thank you very much for this information. This could be an important piece of the puzzle for my SIBO. I have endometriosis but it has never bothered me enough to have it removed. I found out this when I had my ovarian fibroids removed. At one point, I had an ovarian cyst burst which may have caused adhesions as well.
