after c-diff remission without drugs, I had all sorts of weird autoimmune problems such as tingling in my hands and feet, burning etc., the neurologist ruled out the obvious. I cut out gluten, corn, dairy and eggs for a period of time and I gradually reintroduced dairy and eggs…The symptoms start up again or if my lower colon is sufficiently irritated or I eat too much of something or take too many vitamins/supplements, now that happens when I have too much fiber in my diet-So I guess when ever the food item is irritating enough to my lower colon I get symptoms…elleParticipantMay 27, 2014 at 12:23 amPost count: 10
Thanks Norm for all of your support to all of us! Really it was like feeling around in the dark until I found your humble site! I know once this model becomes the standard it will be hard to get this type of direct support so I cherish it while its here! Thank you!elleParticipantMay 27, 2014 at 12:18 amPost count: 10
I appreciate your model as it helps me tremendously maintain my symptoms. Unfortunately there is so much contradictory information on fungal/yeast overgrowth in the gut post-antibiotic use on the web. Although I was diagnosed with a different strain of fungus than candida it seems that everyone has some type of cure for it but I find it all contradictory so its hard to tease out. I sometimes wonder if there are some types of bacteria and or yeast that once they are killed by antibiotics never return?elleParticipantMay 26, 2014 at 5:24 pmPost count: 10
ok so I know I saw a post around here somewhere on Chia seeds FP equal to their fiber? What is their FP anyone?
Also do I need to purchase another kindle copy of the FT diet for heartburn to have access to the new FP tables or will it update my kindle copy?
Thanks! ElleelleParticipantMay 24, 2014 at 9:44 pmPost count: 10
It seems possible that someone could have a fungal/yeast overgrowth in their small intestine right Norm? It seems likely that its growth could create byproducts just as bacteria does… perhaps a fungal/yeast overgrowth could mimic something akin to SIBO…elleParticipantMay 23, 2014 at 5:42 amPost count: 10
Did SIBO lactulose test, came back negative, but that test has only a 68% success rate so take it with some skepticism. I did get my stool sample test back and I have a ridiculous overgrowth of yeast/fungus. Apparently this can cause GERD symptoms too. When I eat too much fiber things are totally out of control and I get all kinds of LPR symptoms. When I eat sugar not much happens- right away anyway. Nonetheless I am on a super restrictive diet that combines antifungal and FT diet.elleParticipantMay 23, 2014 at 5:33 amPost count: 10elleParticipantMay 23, 2014 at 5:31 amPost count: 10
wondering if anyone else has experienced that when you are constipated LPR, belching and GERD get worse. I think that perhaps lower colon dysbiosis can drive problems all the way up to the throat. When I have regular movements- significantly less problems!elleParticipantMay 23, 2014 at 5:27 amPost count: 10
Hi, I was diagnosed with a fungal/yeast overgrowth recently although not candida. My bacteria appear to be well balanced however my prevotella bacteria was super high and therefore I am suspicious that I have a prevotella overgrowth and fungal overgrowth potentially in my lower colon. My Sibo breath test came back negative. Yet the onset of symptoms was GERD and LPR attack if you will. The fast tract diet has helped a lot but there are some things that an antifungal diet will not allow such as jasmine rice, peanuts, cashews and other high mold nuts. In addition to anything fermented except for whole plain yogurt and “fresh cheese.” I haven’t been able to move beyond zero carbs really. I can eat some jasmine rice but then I worry that it is feeding the fungal growth. I guess if it gets absorbed immediately then it may not be a problem. But it tends to spike my blood sugar so I am staying away from it for now anyway.I am sticking to an extremely low fermentable carbs FT diet and excluding anything fermented or likely to have mold or high bacteria such as aged meats, aged cheeses, soy sauce, vinegar. Its extremely restrictive but as long as I don’t have LPR symptoms I am ok. I am also taking other measures to move on from this but they aren’t relevant to this discussion. Basically I eat chicken, yogurt, gelatin, fish and coconut oil and coconut milk and add a few spices- that’s it. I am not at the stage where I can eat any vegetables and that is why I think I may have a prevotella overgrowth in addition to a fungal/yeast overgrowth. I am hoping that lactose free cream cheese might work because it has low carbs, I think its a fresher cheese and any lactose that might be in it will either be removed or digested. Not sure what Norm thinks about this?
