Re: Best functional medicine lab test?
Sounds like contamination from the cooks, food prep people--yuk! My sister once got Hep C from cooks in a Thai restaurant that hadn't washed their hands properly when working with the foods. Everyone else came down with food poisoning but her immune system was severely compromised already so it went into hep...complete with jaundice, liver problems etc. It's just bad news when food workers don't maintain proper cleanliness levels.
That being said, I once spent years stuck with a bloating problem that would not right itself. Absolutely everything I ate or drank, water, whatever, caused my stomach to bloat horribly. I tried everything in the world it seemed. (Not parasite
meds though.) Did zillions of colonics, enemas, fasts, etc, etc. Not really sure what changed it, but it might have been when I switched finally to 100% raw vegan, which I did for 3 yrs. I think it stopped then. I'm not raw now. Maybe if I was I wouldn't be suffering as much as I am right now. If I switched to raw, did lots of fasts, colonics
etc maybe I'd get better...who knows. Unfortunately I'm just not drawn to any of that right now.
Good luck to you!
