Re antobiotics....You and me both! Thats what i was given when i had a cold or flu, thats what everyone was given in our youth, and I was very prone to colds and flus, very prone indeed. I must have had at least 10 courses. I remember having 2 for acne.
I have also read a lot about antibiotics recently and learned just how effect they are against the Flu. Apparntly they are not effective in the slightest.
My gut instinct (ho ho ho) tells me not to touch them with a barge pole, but i'm not a professional either, so it's tricky to know what to do.
Thanks for your help.
Thanks Chuckle. In my struggles to figure out whats going wrong i have reduced my exposure to man-made-chemicals, like household cleaning products, shampoos, soaps, toothpastes etc. This company you just recommended, Mivitality and also Miessence, are the where i get my toiletries from! I like their products as everything is organic. Small world eh!
Probiotics is something i know very little about so thanks for the recommendation and the further reading infomation is very interesting. I think i will need to read up some more about probiotics, so any more links would be helpful.
Antibiotics: My mind is made up....no Antibiotics for me....i wonder if this new Doc will be able to change my mind?
This probiotics is all new to me, so thanks very much. From what i have learned today its also important that its alive when u buy the product. A lot of the cheap, mass market stuff is dead-on-arrival.
This Doc has recommended "megaflora" which he might recommend i take, depending how i go with the special diet he has given me. (i will check-out the Mivitality product plzchuckle recommended too) I thought i was on a difficult diet already....now i will have 5 days on only : lamb, trout, pears, honeydew melon, buckwheat, rice, green beans, avocado, pumkin. Then 2 weeks "allergo - rotation" diet which means only eating the same food only once every 4-5 days...thats gonna be interesting in the office!
He said no need for antibiotics me, only in special cases, as a last resort does he give them. I'm bad, but not a last resort yet. He said my glucose bacterial overgrowth reading of 93 ppm was ultra high and he only gets 1-2 people like me per year, i almost felt special for about 2 seconds!
He has given me some Ginsing to boost my immune system, and some cynara as my kidneys need a kick start, otherwise to stick the diet.
Don't worry, u are not going mad, i posted this on a couple of boards because SIBO is not listen anywhere else, but its most related to candida.
The symptoms of SIBO include: (and I have all of the below plus lots of intolerances)
A small number of patients with SIBO have chronic constipation rather than diarrhea. When the overgrowth is severe and prolonged, the bacteria may interfere with the digestion and/or absorption of food and deficiencies of vitamins and minerals may develop. Weight loss also may occur. Patients with SIBO sometimes also report symptoms that are unrelated to the gastrointestinal tract, symptoms such as body aches or fatigue. The symptoms of SIBO tend to be chronic. A typical patient with SIBO can experience symptoms that fluctuate in intensity over months, years, or even decades before the diagnosis is made.
yes, it is a battle, but i seem to have finally turned a corner now and am on the mend slowly.
May the Force be with you
Yup, no more Antibiotics for me, and no more flouride either. My reading to date has been leading me towards Iodine but i have not got there yet. Spent the last 4 days reading about SIBO, need a break from thats so Iodine will be next on the list. I also just starting "the cure for all diseases" by Hulda Clark which i'm sure will be another eye-opener. Thanks for the directions.
According to this Doc i am so badly screwed up that its a bit too early to blast my insides with Oregano oil. i will take some, but to start with i must boost my immune system and clean out kidneys with some gentle hhhhhherbs......only then can i get heavy. Took some ginsing this morning and ....I FEEL GREAT! WOW...I LIKE THIS STUFF!
Once my immune system is boosted, then can start going for oregano oil, peppermint oil and the like. Also not starting probiotics yet. The thing about the bacterial overgrowth, is that it should be regulated by normal stomach, gall bladder and pancreas function so i have to get them working so they can do their job. After 8 flushes i am only just now feeling some benefits from them.
I have so many Intolerances, to so many foods, i really feel low alot of the time. This has been constantly with me for a long time too. so it feels like the right thing to do; i.e boost immune system and remove all possible food intolerances for 1 or 2 weeks with a super restricted diet. i have not had a clear 2 day period for over 6 months, almost everyday something hurts.
weighed myself for first time in 4 months this morning....i have been avoiding it. i am 6 foot 1in. lost another 3 kg.....not good. I'm 57 kg. I'm all skin and bone
Luckily for me my glass is half full and however bad i feel now, is nothing as bad as used to feel 15 months ago. I am mending slowly but surely, with a lot of two steps forward, 1 step back.
re "The Cure for all Diseases"....yes a real eye-opener...zappers? weird stuff man!....will have to get one and zap everything. LOL
