Re: Please help!
Please read my message below to Eric.
I remember spending a lot of money over a long period of time as well.
As I say in my reply to Eric, my issues started in my late teens as well as they did for you. My own problems started with rounds of Antibiotics
following strep throat.
It sounds like you have a broader range of 'harmful' bacteria than I had, but I was just as sick AND IT WAS NOT DIET THAT CAUSED IT, and NO DIET ALONE COULD FIX IT. Rebalancing intestinal flora is critical.
There's been an explosion of studies and articles on "Intestinal Microbiota" in the last three years as it's now being recognized as a real issue that can either cause disease, or protect from disease.
Here are some additional articles:
Probiotics wont work without Prebiotics, and most off the shelf Probiotics don't have alot of life left. Off the shelf Plain Kefir and Plain yogurts have been pasteurized so they don't have a lot left either.
I just started making my own kefir from live kefir grains. There's a forum dedicated to this on curezone //www.curezone.org/forums/f.asp?f=295
Based on your test results, you may have been worse than I was. Either that, or the tests have become more revealing.
In any case, I see it as though you're a newborn trying to establish your intestinal flora so that you can start eating solid food again.
I have provided you with my success story, but I don't know if it applies to your case.
