I guess I can't help you with your question, but I have a question or two for you just out of curiousity since I'm going to a doctor in two weeks to discuss the Pimentel protocol. Did you have the hydrogen breath test? Did you have trouble convincing your doctor to do the rifax/neomycin? Did you follow the dietary guidelines in the Pimentel book?BTW: Maybe I do have a partial answer for your question...wouldn't juicing have the potential to aggrevate your symptoms? It's not protein-based like the vivonex and could cause you to take in more of the sugars that you're supposed to avoid so you don't feed the bacteria.
