Hi jadjac: I've been through the entirity of gut dysbiosis 101. I've had this going on 3 years now... and for 2 of those years, I actually thought I was dying of some form of cancer/autoimmune/idiopathic disease. The symptoms were so bizar, and so severe (for a while my mental and physical symptoms were one in the same... Ive since been able to seperate the two and at a much more health mental state) that I could not eat anything without feeling drunk/dizzy/nauseous/tired/painful abdomen/constipation/difficult stools/et cetera... it was to the point where I was ready to give up... Got tested at about 2 years of dealing with it... everything normal in my blood besides bilirubin and h pylori. I treated the h pylori and my symptoms were 75% better. My stomach still, to this day after pencillin, is pretty good and th gastritis is gone, and I am able to better digest in my stomach... I can feel it. I was feeling SO well the past 4 months... it was a great cure... I was drinking beer again, eating sandwhiches, but still maintaining a healthy diet and balance... I knew what I could revert to.Got strep 3 weeks ago... and am now dealing with BAD SIBO. But yeah... I have also had really bad candida before. When I was at my worst, looking back... I was dealing with H pylor + candida + sibo... I just know it... I just feel it... Anal itching, itching, sugar craving, I actually developed candida infection on my penis after one weekend I just was so pissed that i ate a bunch of cake and beer (wedding) and then developed candida on my penis... it was insane... I can't truly describe in detail, but I can just tell which feelings are candida, which are sibo, and which are h pylori... I can just feel it and tell.But yeah... candida was something that was a part of it. I cut out gluten, I cut out sugar, I cut out dairy... started taking Oregano oil, coconut oil, GSE... all of those things I could feel begin to ALKELINIZE my intestines... I could feel them bring a balance... it got rid of the putrid, toxic, acidic feeling I was having ALL THE TIME...Over time... I felt better... but it was the Pylera that really cured it. That, with the diet, with the probx, and herbal remedies almost cured me back to normal... Then I took pencillin and although its not as bad as before, and my stomach is still in tact... my small bowel is back to where it was before the Pylera... SO.. I know it will get better... I just need to treat it correctly... and something in the Pylera worked really well on my particualr dysbiosis.But yeah... candia is something I am trying to tackle and keep in check... thanks for the suggestion. Any others welcomed... I just need that dang abx to cleanse my small bowel, and then Im good! I will never kiss another girl again so I dont get step. I swear off of abx unless I NEED them...!! Its just frustrating to feel this way after you had a taste of freedome... it just seems so spiteful... like wtf did I do in my past life? Why did I have to kiss THAT girl to get strep... just overwhelming at points when you are in constant pain.
