Hi i'm 17 and i've been having stomach problems for about 10 months. It all started with a quick onset of bloating, that became distention (never have i seen my stomach so big), than nausea, undigested food repeating on me after meals.
- I spent about a month on an herbal parasite treatment ( Black Walnut , wormwood, berberine, GSE). But that only slightly slowed it down.
- Then i got a rectal swab, it showed charcot-leyden crystals, we used flagyl and paramamosan, and all kinds of antibiotics/ anti parasite drugs for a few months. Only for a few days of those 3 or 4 cycles did i experience noticeable relief.
- After 4 cycles i was not as sick, but far away from the days before this illness, then i got very sick all of a sudden. I had c diff, that caused ulcers all in my colon. So i spent 2 weeks on vancomycin, constant diarrhea is stopped, but now i am 15lb skinnier and weak as hell. Everytime i use the bathroom my stomach within 30 seconds swells up big like a reaction.
- then i go to another doctor after a month or so (i waited for the healing but it never came), he said i probably have candida overgrowth, so i spent 40 days on nystatin, but i see very minimal improvement, and no die off like others.
- now within the last few weeks symptoms have come to include (distention/bloating after every meal and bowel movement, sudden nausea lasting no longer than a few minutes, flatulence, burping, and immediate need to evacuate a small amount of diarrhea after every meal).
- stool sample as of today is negative for c diff, negative for parasites.
Where do i go from here...I believe my doc intends to put me on alinia anyway, and to do a full stool analysis for bacteria.
I have the deepest gratitude for whomever can help me.
First off you need to repopulate your stomach with some good yogurt or kefir. Homemade, not the storebought. I bought some yogogourmet yogurt cultures from Amazon and make my own yogurt because I can't find raw milk. If you can find raw milk, buy some live kefir grains. I tried using kefir with Organic pasteurized, homogonized milk but it never worked. When I had raw milk, it was amazing.
Secondly, you need to quit feeding the bad bacteria, which includes no Sugar and no starches.
I'm no expert but the Body Ecology diet sounds good but some of that stuff is so expensive, so I've been following a mostly raw diet. My stomach was hurting a lot..I had gerd, bloating, IBS, nausea, migraines...and was ill alot.
I can't fast, so I opted for just minimizing the amount of food I was eating and eating mainly yogurt and salads. Most people eliminate the dairy as well but I feel the yogurt is so beneficial at this point as my stomach is so messed up.
I'm not perfect but am constantly working on it. Any questions feel free to ask.
