What Remedies Will Fix My Condition?
I was recently diagnosed with both E. Coli (enterohemorrhagic E. coli) ref range 1.0 normal, mine was 15,255 CFU/gram; and Candida ref range 1.0 normal and mine is 738.8. I go t a hoistic physician who said I had the worst case of E. Coli he had ever seen in 30 years, complicated with bad candida. I have no lactobacillus either according to test results.(-0.01). Even the lab attached a snesitivity profile as to what herbs/botanicals could treat this, in both cases they said pharmaceuticals were the only way b/c nothing would touch it. I my docs office, even so, with an aresenol of herbs etc and he said to try them for a week or so b/c he was worried that the die off wit two stong drugs would be more than I could take (I am now anemic b/c of this)grapefruit seed oil, olive leaf extrsct, tannins,probiotics etc. the usual stuff. However, I was feeling so ill after ten days or so, I caved in and took a diflucan (I am supposed to take 1 more next week); it's been two days with no relief. I might add that my stomach is distended to the size of a seven month pregnancy and this is my second go around with this, this time it's been three months. However, after a five month distention 2.5 years ago, I was finally admitted in the hospital, had an NG tube inserted and every horrilbe, painful test they could do to me. At first they thought I had a partial bowel obstruction, or intermittent kink, then after a week released me in the same conditon I entered with the diagnosis of "IBS", how typical. With no relief, I BEGGED my surgeon to do exploratory surgery to find out WHY i was still distended after FIVE LONG MONTHS, they even gave my two pregnancy tests even though I had a tubal many years earlier. So, I had laparoscopic surgery and they found some diverticulitis and discoloring of my colon (diffuse melanosis), BUT, after the surgery (even being blown up further with gas), my stomach just deflated...gone...completely normal which is pancake flat for me. The doctor could not explain why. Now, I am going through the whole thing again which led me to the holistic physician and the DNA stool testing. I don't know why I all of a sudden blew up again, b/c I have probably been walking around with both these conditions for years. I gained almost 20 lbs. in the first seven weeks. Nothing has helped and I feel so ill I can hardly get out of bed. I am a fitness instructor and also an entertainer; I have managed to teach two classes a week but cannot perform b/c of my abdomen and fatigue. This has consumed my life and I feel there is no end in sight. I found this board and am confused on what a correct protocol for my specific case should be: Hydrgen peroxide, ACV, borax?????? I don't what I can mix with what. I would appreciate any kind of advice Ted or anyone can give. I feel hopeless and my life is at a complete standstill. I am also a wife and mother to three children, and I haven't been up to either position in a very long time. Please help me...
