Entry: Drinking Water To Reduce Back Pain

My chiropractor said I should drink more water to reduce back pain. The inner core of discs is made up of collagen and water. When you don't drink enough water, the inner core shrinks which reduces its shock absorbing capability. I try to drink a 1/2 gallon of plain water a day. On colder days, I d...

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. I had a sigmoidoscopy which showed no anomalies.

Entry: 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.  ...

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...
