I was so freaked out when I was in the ER I had pressure in my abdomen, uncontrollable chills, shivering, with fever, light headed brain fog, I had noticed on my face a slight rash on my cheeks, absolute exhaustion my ear ached a little. My family was sooooo freaked out..so I had all the big heavy duty tests every single thing it was waste of time, energy plus money we have great insurance but still we had finally met out deductable. In fact as I speak my medical dr did another round of parasite check and my sister has me set to go to the best infectious disease specialist in this city because I used to travel outside the country a lot. I keep telling her it is SIBO, but she refuses to believe it since it has not been cured. An ND diagnosed me hydrogen breath test. Many medical dr have no idea what SIBO is .My problem was I just could not accept or imagine that SIBO could cause symptoms of this magnitude. It feels like you have a bad flu like every other day...it can wear you down. I think all of my health issue are connect to SIBO because I had perfet health before.. also recently had a bladder infection with no symptoms and it has gone into my left kidney they put me on Nitrofurantoin a Antibiotic for bacteria ... I so fearful that it might really aggravate SIBO . Anyhow, I drink tons of Sea Salt water with lemon, and as ginger water, cranberry no Sugar added, ginger and cranberry do not let bacteria stick to the wall on the colon so it flushed it out. I take peppermint oil, along with 1 t organic virin coconut oil. I NOTICED this recently drinking two glasses EVERY HOUR for 5 hour straight then I go to one glass I observed decrease of pain in my stomach I'm going to do this for a few days to see if it is decreasing the bacteria. .I take super heavy dose of vitamin C with rose hip tablet. Lysine I put in the blender with water and drink it for greater absorbancy so water and drink it down fast. My diet is a strong garlic spicy soup with turmeric. Thank for sites like this where we can exchange information. I wish that Rifaximin was over the counter you gotta wonder if the real cost to produce it is like 10.00 One ND told me garlic and cinnamon help a lot but she like the Rifaximin approach because it kills it in it tracks.
