R.N, I believe you will be 100% supposedly cured when you eliminate chicken and red meat. These are foods that are not easily digested. A lot of people have been 100% supposedly cured by going on a strictly VEGETARIAN diet - foods that are easily digested. And these people should become 100% uncured the second they start eating all types of food. The key to our cure, as I have discovered through another illness that is related to my fecal odor, is to ENERGIZE our digestive nerves so that they can become STRONG ENOUGH again for our body to be able to digest all kinds of food like they were doing before our fecal odor. I heard about a drug on Zelnorm.com that works to boost a hormone called Serotonin which energizes nerves around the body. Before my fecal odor problem I was stucked with a very anti-social habit of crossing my eyes. At first I was intentionally crossing my eyes as a kid to take my mind off some other problem I was experiencing then. Within a month, it became very difficult for me to move my eyes as well as I used to. And I later discovered my eye-movement problem is an OCD. And in OCD,low Serotonin is a culprit.
When I first started browsing through this site a couple of months ago, I was reading about some people who were getting relief from fecal odor by taking drugs from psychiatrists that boost Serotonin (anti-depressive pills should boost Serotonin). But I couldn't make the connection then. I was thinking "how can a psychiatrist be able to cure fecal odor? This is silly". But now I do understand. It is as if our problem is all in our head, and it could be...if the hormonal gland for Serotonin is located in our head. (I'm not sure of the exact location of this gland in the body.)
The main sympton associated with our fecal odor is either constipation or frequent bowel movements with feelings of incomplete evacuation. This shows that this is a digestive issue because our digestive nerves aren't working properly, just as the nerves in my eyes stopped working properly the moment I started to have low serotonin level; so when my brain signals to my eyes to UNCROSS because I don't feel like crossing my eyes anymore, my eyes don't respond because the messenging-pathway (THE NERVES) is weak. I find inadequate serotonin level guilty as charged in both "fecal odor disorder" and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, OCD.
