Kellie shared her recent experience navigating through the Undoctored strategies for eradication of small intestinal bacterial and fungal overgrowth, SIBO and SIFO.
Her experience perfectly illustrates both the physical challenges that can develop during SIBO/SIFO-eradicating efforts, as well as the over-the-top health successes enjoyed once you succeed.
“For those of you doing the herbal antibiotics and essential oils for treatment of SIBO/SIFO, hang in there, it will get better!
“I’ve been following all the Wheat Belly/Undoctored strategies for about 5 months and today I actually have energy! I even vacuumed my whole house.
“I was a little late starting the prebiotics, about a month after starting the program, and I just kept feeling worse and worse. I kept reading all these posts about increased energy, end to insomnia, etc, but I only felt slightly better, so I was getting very frustrated.
“After reading about SIBO/SIFO, I knew that’s what was going on, so I started the protocol which I did for 3 weeks and then the essential oils for about 3 weeks. I didn’t have many of the issues that other people had during treatment: only very slight GI issues, not really any dark thoughts, no fever or chills. But I DID have a huge increase in fibromyalgia symptoms and rashes. My fatigue and muscle pain has been crippling. (I’m a nurse). It felt like the fungus in my body was going crazy in ALL my nooks and crannies! My joints swelled up, joint pain became severe, my torn rotator cuff pain came back, my bunion pain became more intense and even my TMJ flared up, which hasn’t bothered me in years!
“The past few days I decided to take a break from treatment, concentrating on getting probiotics and prebiotics in. And today I feel WONDERFUL for the first time in a LONG time! I know I’ll have to retreat and I’m not looking forward to that but I’m just gonna enjoy this for a couple of weeks! So, hang in there! It will probably get worse before itgets better, but it will get better.”
And, of course, Kellie achieved this substantial success without her doctor in perfect Undoctored style. Kellie experienced an intensification of joint pain and swelling as her body battled overproliferated bacteria and fungi, effects presumably due to bacterial and fungal die-off, i.e., death of the trillions of microbes inhabiting the 30-feet of gastrointestinal tract. But, as her experience illustrates, it is challenge well worth the effort.
