Connect with Shivan Sarna
Shivan Sarna is a native New Yorker, but has lived and travelled the world – as a child she visited India with her parents and that is where she believes her struggle with SIBO started. It was her first of many memories of having a “stomach ache”. Shivan tried almost everything she could think of to get rid of her issues but had limited success. The healing she received helped her symptoms and her overall resilience, but there was an underlying cause she didn’t find until 2015. Shivan then finally started finding the relief she needed and realized that there were millions of other people around the world suffering the same as she did for those many years. She created the SIBO SOS™ Summit to spread the message that people who have SIBO and other chronic digestive problems DO have MANY options for treatment and healing.
