Well today I looked more into finding a doctor that does Hydrogen Breath test for SIBO.
I contacted the Hydrogen Breath test machine manufacturer, and it turns out that the closest place/Dr. that performs this test is in Los Angeles which is about 1 hour away from me. And the cost is about $300 for Dr. Consultation and $500 for the breath test… At least its a M.D. so If I do it there, and the test determines that I have SIBO(which I am 99% sure) then the MD can give me a prescription there….
My insurance has a high deductible so I would be paying cash.
I wonder how much would the xifaxan cost. I got to call my insurance tomorrow to see if it covers it… I doubt it.
I started Bee Propolis today…. I might add Oregon Grape root in the next few days if I don’t get much die off from the Propolis.. They say for natural anti-biotics one should stay on it for at least 1 month (as opposed to xifaxan which is only 1 week to 10 days).
