Diet Change And Recovery- Question

Recommended Posts

hello-

I have been gluten free for almost 2 months and after getting an extensive battery of tests performed (blood, stool, saliva) I have been placed on a pretty strict diet and cannot consume eggs, dairy, gluten or soy as well as other foods that I am allergic to (according to the blood test) . i was diagnosed with colonic inflammation, mild leaky gut, mild candida overgrowth and I am taking the following supplements per the recommendation of my doctor:

1. seacure

2. parabiotic

3. proboulardii

4. biogest enzymes

5. acacia fiber

6. glutamine

once i started taking the supplements i felt pretty good and was starting to have somewhat normal and regular bowel movements again. FYI i have had chronic constipation for 5 years, which was my biggest problem. anyway, after being on the supplements for a few weeks i noticed that i am starting to get constipated again w/ hard stools and bloat. does anyone know why this is happening if all these supplements and lifestyle changes are supposed to help? my doctor said its because my flora is changing and that it is normal, but its still frustrating sine i thought I was finally on the mend. i'd appreciate some feedback from you guys. Thanks so much for your time

Regards,

jason

are you getting enough water?

are you eating sugars and sugary fruits/starchy veggies? (feeds yeast/bacteria) - makes me bloat

hidden dairy/soy/gluten/egg?

If you eat lots of fiber, make sure you drink lots of water.

anyway, probably not helpful....but those are my thoughts.

Have you checked to be absolutely certain that the supplements you are taking are gluten-free/CF/SF? Don't trust that they were just because the doctor that diagnosed the intolerances has told you the ones to take. Check with the companies that make them.

what about sugar?

what about acid/alkaline balance?

what about exercise?
