Update: I don't know if the oil of oregano pills had anything to do with this (I only took about 5 or 6 doses), but most of my symptoms have subsided over the past week and a half. This is the longest stretch that I have been "normal" in the over 2 years (however, I am still taking Miralax which was only somewhat effective before). I even reintroduced dairy (small amounts) and kombucha and have not had any issues. I did not attempt to reintroduce wheat/gluten or decrease the Miralax usage (I take 3 caps per day). Hopefully I can get to the point I don't need to take the Miralax anymore.
Interesting, and this is also why I asked how your symptoms were afterwards! This would lead one to conclude that the diarrhea and pain you had was at least due in part to die-off, not irritation, and that the oil did help reduce bacterial load or kill a pathogen. Keep monitoring your symptoms and if they return maybe you can try the oil again.
