Entry: Restricted Diet Based on Observation

A restricted diet based on observation controls my SIBO symptoms the most. There are a lot of special diets out there but I've found that a safe food for one person can be a catastrophe for another. This diet has helped me the most: - Minimize wheat. Small amounts can be okay if eaten periodi...

Entry: Parasite/Bacteria - MicroDefense

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 ...

Blog: Parasite Infection Diagnosed as IBS

I had a parasite infection misdiagnosed as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for 17 years. I had many Giardia, E. Coli, Culture, H. Pylori, Ova and Parasite tests which all returned negative.

Entry: Probiotic Drinks - Kombucha, Water Kefir

Kombucha and water kefir contain live probiotics from fermentation. I drink a minimum of 16 oz. a day, sometimes 32 oz./day if I hit a sale (16 oz. bottles are ~$3 USD at the supermarket). I notice a decline in health when I stop drinking these beverages so I know they have a positive effect. ...

Entry: Parasite/Bacteria - Xifaxan

I took the Hydrogen & Methane Breath Test and the doctor prescribed Xifaxan, an antibiotic that fights bacterial infection only in the intestines. I took it for 2 weeks (three 550mg tablets a day) and the results were better than Pure Encapsulations MicroDefense (maybe 10% better...
