    I am also curious about that…. does your body assimilate this well? and what do you mix it with?

    I love coconut water and would also be curious.
    thank you
    i’ll be trying out my new electrolye replacement today… the pedialyte worked great yesterday and the taste was fine. the flavored ones have sucralose or is it dextrose in them both of which are ok…

    I agree with Norm on NOT going with the anibiotics…. that’s what got me in this predicament in the first place.
    And thanks Norm on the article on Kefir… some store bought ones have cane juice in them… is that a problem?..

    Hi MC, i’m going to give you some links to read on bone broth… I use grass fed beef bones that I get from our local country store here.. i bought one on mainland at whole foods and it looked like they washed it and it was not very good at all…here i get a bag of bones some with beef parts still on in about a 6 pound bag for 4$

    here’s another
    http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth-tutorial/

    you can find tons of information… I use a crock pot and let it slow cook for 2 days… i prefer the beef broth but that’s all preference. in the FODMAP diet they recommend drinking 2-3 cups a day to stART out and they say it’s IMPORTANT!! so there you have it.. good luck let me know how it goes.. the apple cider vinegar I would use (braggs) is super important as it helps leach all these great mineral out of the bones and also supports the creation of the gelatin.

    happy wednesday…

    I buy the Kefir premade but I have made it before with a kefir starter …. first see how it works for you but getting your flora together is always a good idea…. I would keep doing the enzymes as you wean off. your system is already compromised so the enzymes will help and then if you are digesting well dont take em and see what happens. Also really chewing your food is good…alot of enzymes are in our mouth. i’m just beginning this diet so it would be helpful if we could have some experienced FTD folk jump on board.. also i really suggest the bone broth!! it’s so healing!!

    wondering about using non-fat plain greek yogurt and the cocoa or carob powder.. would be a nice morning drink….instead of eggs and bacon everyday…

    HI MC.. My sense is the enzymes just help the digesting of the food so it doesn’t sit there and get all acidic and gassy. Norm says to make sure they have lactase in them not sure if that was in the book or a forum i read… the Kefir is a soothing probiotic.. kind o like liquid yogurt but I believe has more probiotics and I take a super good probiotic with it.. i’ve had a history back in 2010 taking 4 rounds off antibiotics which I think was the beginning of this SIBO. I should’ve known better, duh.. but was driven at the time to “win” the year in sales… i paid a high price…. oh I have 1/2 glass of Kefir 2x a day… plain, vanilla and unsweetened is good. some have cane juice…not sure how that is. Also if you really have too much acid in stomach a very small amount of baking soda in water and that should neutralize the stomach acid and heartburn…
    let me know how it goes.

    Norm thanks for the links.. I will keep informed on them. in the meantime i’m hoping this diet can ease these symptoms…

    Hi mc… Thanks for the info.. I looked it up and it didn’t really say what it was or how it worked or how long it worked for… so I’m sticking with this plan as it seems to make the most sense….Good luck weaning off the nexium… i think you will be much happier.. you’ve tried good digestive enzymes i imagine…? The other thing I remember that worked for me was a half glass of Kefir… i use 99.0% lactose free kefir……

    thanks again for caring…

    I have not taken prelief and at this point don’t htink I need it… I was o PPI’s for some time but somehow felt very odd in my mouth like super dry. then someone suggested I try enzymes and HCL that i was creating the opposite problem and wow my heartburn went away. I now am suffering from IBS-D and was doing well until I went on a vacation. it was just very very hard at this stage which is only 4 weeks to eat out and find foods that are suitable… so now i’m back o bone broth…VERYVERY healing!!! and day 2 of pepto bismol…

    I know this isn’t the actual subject but i saw you all contributing and just wanted to share….
