I agree. SIBO is more complicated than most other GI issues.I have Kleb oxytoca, Kleb pneu and Citrobacter in my gut along with no Lacto, Ecoli 4+ and Bifido 3+. I have been doing a routine of all kinds of herbs but I think I need to do a planned routine. Your vitc based protocol makes sense.
Have you tried plant tannins (Viracin) before? they are known to be potent against Klebsiella too.
I am trying to do the small bowel cleanse. Heres my plpan
1. Fast on water for 5-7 days during which I take Vit C, b12 sublingual and plant tannins. I decided against olive leaf because the liquid supplement i got is sweet and I wonder if that will feed the SIBO guys. Instead I am opting for viracin as they are capsules mainly for the stomach and small bowel. Is it ok if I do vit c and viracin together?
2. On the 8th day I break the fast and then slowly introduce bile salts, pancreatic enzymes, vegetables and healthy fats and pea protein. I will see how it goes. I will judge by the symptoms. I will also add probiotics and Therelac (not threelac) works best for me.
Please let me know if this makes sense to you.
also now that you are free of SIBO, what is your general diet. What do you still supplement?
