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 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.

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.

It was very easy to make and the grains multiplied like crazy (I used organic, non-homogenized whole milk from Straus). I've read many accounts of people with hard to diagnose problems (wasting/autoimmune) recovering after drinking milk kefir. I was hoping for the same results...

I take Pure Encapsulations MicroDefense 3 to 4 times a year to kill parasites and bad bacteria. This has been the most effective treatment for my condition (SIBO/parasite infection) to date. I take 3 capsules 3x a day for 10 days and then take a 5 day break. Then I do a second round of 3 capsules 3x a day to capture anything that wasn’t caught in the first round. It has not cured SIBO but it reduces symptoms.  I initially took this under the guidance of a naturopath. I had a parasite infection for 17 years and this reduced symptoms (constant, intense a...
