what if you don’t need to chelate?
I believe this diet will get me better?
It will take time anyway. Yes, the diet and the supplements will work to some extend. You may be satisfied with your results, you may not. If you follow it with discipline and respect, you may recover totally.
One of the biggest problem with antibiotic overuse, in my view, is that current pharmaceutical probiotics don’t implant in the gut permanently. Neither they have the main human gut bacterial enerotypes known so far. In other words, probiotics are Lactobacillus species, Bifidobacterium species, E.Coli, and yeast. Any of them contain the bacterias that dominate the intestinal flora. There are other human indigenous species probably more important because are what dominate ( bigger amount present )the gut ecology. Unfortunately, those species are hard to cultivate and elaborate as a pharmaceutical probiotic because they are facultative anaerobic or totally anaerobic.
Still, there is hope of recovering and colonizing the gut with human flora. Fecal Transplants and HPI have solved this situation. The human indigenous flora present in human feces, when transferred to another host, is able to colonize the gut and predominate displacing pathogenic bacterias and correcting the production of Acetic Acid, Butyric Acid ,and Lactic Acid which are fuel for the epithelial cells.
Experiment with diets have influenced and modulated the flora, but it appears that this procedure can not change the pattern of the flora one time it has been severely altered.
Science is so worried about it that is developing the “perfect probiotic”. They are working in a system where if a patient need medical intervention with medicines that destroy the flora such as chemotherapy or antibiotics, they will collect your feces before to start the treatment. Then, they will elaborate especial capsules with your feces and your identity and will keep them refrigerated until you end the treatment. Later, you will take those capsules with a prior PPI treatment to recover your own flora.
