Authority on Gastrointestinal Tract Issues
Sandy Rideout is a Functional Medicine Consultant whose focus and passion is on gastrointestinal tract disease and disorders and how they have a systemic effect on all other systems in the body. Evidence of gastrointestinal dysfunction has been linked to disease including autoimmune, diabetes, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and cancer.
Through the lens of functional medicine, Sandy focuses on all systems in the body and how they function together as one whole system which makes us human. He focuses on the patient who has the disease and NOT the disease that the patient has. He investigates the root cause of disease rather than focusing on symptoms.
Sandy works closely with a well-respected Gastroenterologist to assist with diagnosis and treatment of patients with complex gastrointestinal issues. He also teaches the basics of functional medicine to other health professionals. His primary focus is on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and has mapped out the pathways of the effects of SIBO on the body. He uses this SIBO map as a teaching tool as well as a guide for health professionals to use in their practice in diagnosing and treating their patients with various diseases.
Founder of Living Streams Mission
Living Streams Mission has developed and manufactures a wide range of specialized liquid probiotic formulas to meet your health and wellness needs.Living Streams Multi-Blend™ (Living Streams Probiotic™) is a natural by-product of friendly bio-organisms (probiotics) that have been specially cultured and developed to produce the natural anti-infective substances the human body was meant to receive from flora in the intestinal track. Living Streams probiotics only contain organic lab certified bacteria species that are naturally found in the human body, and does not contain bacteria obtained from soil microbes.
Processed foods (for both humans and animals), lack enzymes and other nutrients which results in poor quality intestinal flora and other health stresses. Even the normal amounts of these substances that would otherwise be there are missing in most animals and people. On top of that, because the friendly bacteria are missing from the intestinal track growth of “bad” bacteria, fungus, yeast, virus and mold colonies can seriously harm health. Even if you think you are healthy, subclinical infective processes may be at work, slowly damaging your health.
You may want to suggest to your practitioner, who you are working with on your digestive/gut challenges, to look into Sandy’s MindMapping Program that will guide them in finding the cause. Sandy’s website is: fxmedicalconsuting.com

Low HCl production is a visceralsomatic reflex, from CN IX to Vagus Nerve CN X is stimulated by your taste buds when you put protein in the mouth. The Parotid gland tags the food in your mouth saliva. Communicates with CN IX. So Occiput C1-C2 (Superior Cervical Ganglion ) informs the stomach to secrete HCl and pepsin to initiate the digestion of proteins. Specific Chiropractic adjustments and Osteopathic manipulation reset the visceral-somatic reflex from the brain to the stomach. Digestion is a parasympathetic stimulus, stress is sympathetic(Fight or flight). There are also specific cranial faults that when corrected, jump starts the HCl production in the stomach.
