Has anyone used Triguard Plus for eradicating bacterial overgrowths such as Prevotella and/or Hpylori? I have been very sick for 9 months. After months of ER and hospital visits, many docs and specialists said it was viral and to let it run its course. I was a healthy 31 year old female before this. I became so ill, I had to stop working and move in with my parents after I couldn't move one day. Strength is so depleted I usually have to decide whether I will brush my teeth or wash my face for the day because I only have energy to do one or the other.
After very small rollercoaster improvements and declines, I contacted an mnaturopath/Ayurveda practioner who ordered a stool test. Sure enough, I have severe overgrowth of prevotella and hpylori. Test also showed I am not digesting fats and proteins by 100% I began a supplement regimen 6 weeks ago: ultra flora probiotics, biotagen prebiotics, and Interfase systemic enzymes. Two weeks later we introduced digest gold digestive enzymes and triguard plus to start killing off bacteria. The Triguard suggests starting at 20-30 drops 3x a day. We started small because I'm only iabout 105 pounds and my system is very toxic. I took 5 drops twice a day for 3 days. Then I went up to 10 drops twice a day for 3 days. By the third day I was so sick from the die off. I was throwing up, heart was racing from no energy, and I was worse than before barely able to move. This lasted a few days and it took about two weeks to get back to where I was before triguard. I had stopped taking it during that time. So, I began again with 5 drops twice a day for 4 days. I was seeing small improvements until again, the herx reaction. It was so bad I was confined to bed again for 4 days, barely having enough energy to even eat.
I don't know how I will ever get to 30 drops 3x a day if I can't even handle 5 drops. I know the herx symptoms are good, meaning I'm killing bacteria, but I cannot go through this reaction every week. It takes me weeks to come back from. I am very heat sensitive right now, so I cannot go outside or take a hot bath to sweat out toxins. I am skin brushing daily, drinking plenty of filtered water, getting plenty of vitamin c and having bowel movements every day for detox.
Any suggestions or comments would be so helpful. I've been housebound for 9 months and was a traveling model before all of this. I can't even take a car ride at this point. Also, I tried Antibiotics in the beginning of all of this and am so highly allergic, I was back in the ER. This is why we are going a natural route which has proven successful in many others.
