Working with SIBO
Going into a workplace with SIBO is a challenge: - I chose a profession that lends itself to working from home (WFH). Software engineering can be performed alone except for meetings. I try to negotiate as many WFH days as possible. I found that some employers/managers are more open than others. I noticed recently some businesses advertise as WFH-friendly which is a positive trend. I'm really curious what others with SIBO/IBS do for a living. - I've never disclosed my condition to employers. I wonder if that was a mistake. If you have SIBO/IBS and disclosed your conditi...
Antispasmodic Dicyclomine (Bentyl)
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.

Moringa Tea for Dehydration and Acid Reflux
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...
