I’ve had chronic dehydration or dry mouth for as long as I've had SIBO. I always feel thirsty. The cause is a mystery. I’ve been tested for diabetes multiple times (negative). I was never diagnosed with dry mouth. After recently getting food poisoning, I started having acid reflux too.  I’ve tried many dry mouth products which had no effect. I drink kombucha and kefir water to give the mouth/esophagus/throat direct exposure to probiotics which helps. I read that Moringa is good for rheumatoid arthritis. I don't have RA but figured it must be good for the immune system so...

I was prescribed HCL by a naturopath. The theory was my body wasn't creating enough HCL to digest food properly. I took Premier Research Labs HCL capsules (one to two) with each meal. It didn't improve my condition. I tried another brand (can't remember the name) and I had the same results.  So low HCL doesn't seem to be my problem.

A few years back I started taking spirulina and chlorella. I read stories about it restoring people to perfect health. Well, that didn't happen but I think it helps with overall health. I take Mercola Spiru-Blue (3 tabs a day) and Mercola Fermented Chlorella (5-6 tablets a day). I've taken Earthrise Spirulina and Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica which are comparable. I've tried other chlorella brands which caused digestive upsets. The fermentation process of the Mercola brand makes it more digestible.

I was prescribed Dicyclomine (Bentyl), an antispasmodic, on two separate occasions and had the same results. The first time I had a long-standing parasite infection. I took it daily for 2 - 3 months (unfortunately I can't remember quantity). It helped initially and then it simply stopped working. It was like my system found a way around it. I tried it again years later, this time with a SIBO diagnosis. The plan was to use it sporadically to get through special events, meetings, luncheons, etc. Unfortunately I had the same results with occasional use. On drugs.com I see go...

I take multivitamins to compensate for poor digestion. I've been using Pure Encapsulations Nutrient 950 for several years. I take a separate calcium supplement which covers ~60% of recommended daily value. Periodically I take a break to see if it makes a difference. I definitely notice it.
