This is Dr. David
the idea is that you have too much bacteria in your small bowels which could be producing too much gas and may not be helping you properly with your digestion.
the way to treat SIBO is often with a course of antibiotics such as Rifaximin which has been shown to be most effective
you can read more here
some patients also benefit from additional of probiotics into their diet during or after antibiotic therapy to add more "good" bacteria into their bowels to help with proper digestion
also drinking more water and regular exercise can help your bowels work better
for some patients, avoiding milk and lactose can help
for some patients, avoiding gluten wheat protein in pasta, breads, pizza dough can help
keeping a food diary of what you eat and seeing what foods cause worse symptoms can help as well
