Hey guys. I went to the Doc. to get testet for possible candida / SIBO. I just got the test results back from my stool samples, with a message " If you continue to have trouble with Diarrhea - Contact me ".. I never had trouble with Diarrhea to... (more)
Since last august I developed mild acid reflux and bloating overnight. I have taken multiple antibiotics right before that happened for sinus infections. To this day I still have bloating throughout the day. Im 131 pound male that is 5 ft 10. Im... (more)
You sound almost as bad as me... I have similar problems and I survive (barely) by eating numerous small meals throughout the day, as varied as possible. I'd like to avoid grains and legumes but I just can't without starving to death, so I have a... (more)
I have SIBO. I have not started the GAPS, SCD, or low FODMAPS diet yet (the FODMAP one was recommended by doc). I have been prescribed antibiotics to kill the SIBO, but I am wondering if I should WAIT to start the healing diet until AFTER the... (more)
I have a question about sugar binge symptoms. I have noticed that sugar binges are especially hard on me. I am just coming out from my three-day sugar binge. It started very innocently - I had some honey. Then I had some raw goat milk. Then some... (more)
I have been having major issues with mostly bloating and some pain in my intestines for a little while. My stools seem to be okay mostly, but sometimes a bit too hard. My problem started after switching back to a diet with more carbs after being... (more)
My last question for today. I have noticed that my food cravings have changed dramatically after SIBO recovery. Cravings while having SIBO: chocolate sweets ice-cream dairy and creamy desserts bread/things made with dough like pies,... (more)
I cannot have seaweed because it is not on SCD. However, I am thinking of having some cauliflower and it is a known goitrogen. So how do I balance out the goitrogenic properties of cauliflower without consuming seaweed? I was thinking clams,... (more)
There are differing opinions since Candida can feed on ketones, etc. Im confused, is it SIBO that cant feed on starchy foods like potatoes, but Candida can? However, candida cant feed on green leafy vegetables but SIBO can ferment them? If... (more)
So, SIBO treatment appears to be limited in that it only treats SIBO in itself. I feel as if the major reason most experience recurring symptoms is that the root condition is not being treated. So my question is, what are the causes of SIBO and... (more)
This article states that green plantains can be beneficial for those having persistent diarrhea: http://www.jacn.org/content/28/2/169.full On the basis of these data, we hypothesized that green plantain's pectin content would restore small... (more)
I have been waiting months for test results due to screw-ups by a testing company. In the meantime, I have been assuming I have had SIBO. This is what has helped: Of course, a "standard-carb diet" (which is essentially Paleo without sugar and... (more)
I have IBS with bloating and cramping as the major symptoms. I did a hydrogen breath test for SIBO many years ago which came back negative. Last year my naturopath ordered a comprehensive stool parasitology, which showed no dysbiosis. I... (more)
I recently finished with the 21 Day Sugar Detox and have just started the autoimmune paleo protocol. I've noticed this past month that my stomach is queasy. It's similar to a mild morning sickness (and no, I'm not pregnant) I don't feel like I'm... (more)
I drank some ginger tea today and suddenly afterwards felt incredibly sleepy, fatigued, and with incredible brain fog. Can anyone care to explain what's going on? Could those symptoms just have coincidentally occurred with the tea? I am pretty... (more)
I checked out Denise Minger's daily menu (thanks to Pecan) and it seems that she eats mostly raw vegetables and fruits (as well as raw fish, shellfish and occasionally meat). Now, it is very interesting, but I find that raw vegetables agree with... (more)
I had an intestinal resection procedure done about 4 years ago and ever since then, I've had to go the bathroom between 3-8 times/day (depending on my diet and SIBO). Through following this diet and eating 2 big meals on the opposite ends of the... (more)
And went back to a normal Paleo diet and continued to be symptom-free? I read a lot about how people start treatment or a SCD... and never seem to get off. Is that the prognosis for SIBO victims?
I have done brief research into SIBO and there are so many conflicting diets for what to eat. I need to try something I can do in the interim of seeing a doctor to see if I have SIBO. I can't do bone broth just yet and I still have some veggies,... (more)
I believe the word you are looking for is biome....and garlic ain't too shabby. 3 cloves of raw garlic a day is supposed to be pretty good at kickin' butt and takin' names.
As I've reached the point of suffering to where I can no longer function, it is time to make a change. The truth is, I'm not exactly sure what's causing my symptoms: painful itchy skin rashes, anxiety, acid reflux, depression, constipation, brain... (more)
I've heard that starches can cause or contribute to leaky gut. I have celiac and I'm doing strict paleo to help with healing. Should I avoid sweet potatoes and squashes and such?
I usually skip dinner. When I wake up, I have intense abdonimal cramping then have a bowel movement. Could this be SIBO die-off? Something else? Thanks.
I was thinking that SIBO is best addressed when gut motility is restored. Gut motility is the real issue. Last time I was taking antibiotics I killed the bacteria, but it came back because my gut motility is impaired. I looked up everything on... (more)
Improve thyroid function. One way to do that is eliminating significant sources of polyunsaturated fats from the diet. Google hypothyroidism and SIBO. Hypothyroid people are significantly more likely to have SIBO.
I know, I know, I searched already. But this is NOT an easy question because I am not just constipated. I have the methane producing bacteria that is responsible for my problems. It slows down my gut motility and it stalls the whole digestive... (more)
I am intolerant to almost everything and I am a SIBO-starving diet (soup with zucchini and carrot, meat and egg yolks). I always go by the way my body feels. I eat whatever it tells me to eat. For some weird reason, I feel I should not be eating... (more)
