  1. My daughter had itchy eyes and redness from SIBO. We learned about her SIBO at the same time that I stumbled across the Nemechek Protocol for SIBO and it made such sense that we went straight to his protocol to resolve SIBO (which has no food restrictions or special diets) - so while I can't give...
  2. You should research SIBO. It sounds identical to what you are describing and also has Gluten intolerance as a symptom. I put my daughter on the Nemechek protocol for SIBO a few months ago and all of those symptoms cleared up. I wrote and update about it on here not long ago. You should read it...
  3. OH and it turns out that WORST thing for SIBO - the thing that causes it to grow out of control and make things worse in Probiotics!
  4. Thanks!! I think about you often as well - you were such an "anchor" for me to cling to when I first landed here!
  5. Hi Everyone. I haven't been on here much but some of you may remember me. I am just returning to give you our update. So what brought me here originally was that my daughter was textbook Gluten Ataxia and when we put her on a gluten-free/DF diet she improved so much. But like everyone...
  6. Oh wow! I haven't been here in days because I have been POURING over the most recent SIBO literature! Have you heard of Dr Nemechek? https://www.nemechekconsultativemedicine.com/ His approach is very simple and essentially you STOP using probiotics and start taking Inulin. It is all...
  7. You're right that area is gallbladder! Well we just saw the Naturopath - she was puzzled by the recurring stomach aches also but allows for the fact that it COULD just be healing - she did have that gluten exposure that I mentioned 2 weeks ago. But she decided to start her on a digestive enzyme...
  8. Thanks everyone!! I think I have noticed a pattern...she is in pain and it is resolved as soon as she has a bowel movement. I could be wrong but it appears to the be the case. Will keep an eye on it. The naturopath told us to "work towards" a grain free/Paleo diet and my daughter committed...
  9. I am trying to tease out what is going on with my daughter: We went Gluten/Dairy Free March 1 and she steadily got better but looking back through the journal tummy aches were still randomly occurring on a semi reg basis. But she was improving so much that my focus was mainly on the improvements...
  10. But it is interesting to wonder about the WHY? Why are some of us more sensitive? Why can my son eat ALL THE WHEAT and still poop and math like a champ and my daughter was home sick today because she ate a Vegan, dairy free, nut free, soy free, animal cruelty free cupcake yesterday. It was stamped...
  11. This statement: know there is an issue when you google and everything comes up with a blog or a site that SELLS you something. Is exactly what my Dr touched on when I spoke to her today. Worth noting the Naturopath isn't trying to sell me anything (other than the supplements we are already...
  12. I appreciate ALL your words of caution. Sometimes I forget that the internet doesn't *know* my personality and only calculates who I am based on what I type. After 3 years of being on this journey and countless "well that didn't work" therapies and medical opinions I really don't find myself jumping...
  13. We have never checked thyroid or homocysteine levels. My mother in law has thyroid issues and there was some speculation that I did as a child so it is VERY possible. It's been on my mind but with kids like this the temptation is to check everything! LOL I would run every thing known to man but...
  14. My understanding of this gene defect is that MANY people would test as having the gene defect. But not everyone would have any problems. The severity of the issues is the result of HOW damaged the gene is. So I could go in and test as having a MTHFR gene defect but my gene is still performing...
