So its been almost a year with my digestion, reflux and bloating. I m eating a little less now, more salads and chicken soup or bone broth. I need more calories so I tried almond butter for the first time in months and I have no reaction. So a few tablespoons every other day should be ok. However, since the diet and stuff I have developed only 1 cold during the winter, a few sinus infections that required no antibiotics at all. My allergies gotten better, my immune seems to be doing good. So does that hopefully mean I m getting better with the yeast? I just don’t get the digestion and leaky gut still, but I guess it takes time. The problem is that Sibo is killing my digestion issues Im thinking. I just want my normal stomach back. I cut out probiotics because of the overgrowth of bacteria but today I m gonna start eating goat yogurt again for a little bit of slowly. I just wonder If Im worse because of my stomach still being messed up or if I m getting better because the systematic stuff has seemed to go away. I have good energy lately, it might be due to the b12 pills since the stomach bugs take my nutrients. I just want this digestion and leaky gut cleared up.May 31, 2013 at 8:18 am #105398
mooch, I feel the same way! I don’t know if I have sibo, but I know I can get my energy up if I need to, and yes, b-vitamins help me with that because I need my folate and b12 based on my lab results. Plus, some of the things the recent doctor gave me has really been helping my sinuses. I have not had a stuffy nose at night the past couple weeks, which usually I do.
I still just get major anxiety due to my digestion issues, too. It comes and goes during the day; I feel okay one minutes, not another, then feel a little better, then back to bad again. It seems there is just not a balance with my leaky gut. Plus, I can feel real constipated, or then flow the other way. It causes pressure on my left abdomen, plus, sometimes it still is hard to pin-point whether it is my stomach or intestines. I still worry about extra fiber in some of the flours sometimes due to my gastroparesis (even with pacemaker, not a cure, but helps!) that is why I still due brown rice flour in some of my recipes, but I don’t eat rice that often, mainly I switched to eating cream of buckwheat (only a gram of fiber), or I buy some hulled millet at my co-op (just don’t eat a big serving); I do better on small meals. Have you tried diving up your meals? That does help me at times on some leakiness days.
I really just like eating veggies, and then a some crackers, either rice or my homemade for some crunch. I love my crunch! Most the time I have tried to eat cucumbers as my crunch; they are easy on my stomach.May 31, 2013 at 3:02 pm #105418
I have cut out all my coconut, buckwheat and wheat flours due to high fiber. Fiber can make sibo worse. I cut all every single grain now, not even steel cut oats gluten free. My fiber is coming from all my veggies I m eating. I need to have more bowel movements, spacing out my food from 2 to about 4 hours has been helping a bit. I added a probiotic of just goat yogurt last night. I reacted a little by having some mucous reflux. I have been taking goat colostrum for a few days now and hopefully that helps leaky gut. I also have anxiety over my digestion. I hate it so muchMay 31, 2013 at 4:35 pm #105424
Yeah, I am almost considering the same thing, and just getting my fiber from veggies because I don’t mind snacking on veggies. I hate to say it, but if I really want some carbs; I’ll have to stick to rice flour; I’ll just try to not eat it all the time. I don’t think millet flour bothers me that much. I am thinking I should cut out buckwheat and coconut for awhile, but if I really want it; just a very small amount to mix in my recipes; like 2 tbsp. or 1/4 cup like a recipe says most the time; not pure 100% of the flour. Keep me updated mooch! Hang in there!! Oh, I’ve mixed oat flour in my recipes, and I seem absolutely fine in that, but I have only really been eating it on a version of life cereal that I made up that is gluten free. 1/2 oat flour and 1/2 brown rice flour. I love it!!!May 31, 2013 at 5:23 pm #105427
I was eatin coconut bread every day so I think I developed some intolerance to it. Rice flour is great when I made my bread but since I cut out the flours I’ve noticed my bloating is better a little. I just finished my antibiotic xifixam for sibo. The bloating seems better, except I was eating eggs everyday and think I developed intolerances to them now. Blah. So I bloated and lots of mucous, my acid reflux issue. I just have to rotate what I can eat. I even cut out brocolli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower for now. Lots if salads, meats, avacado, and some almond butter for some extra calories and filler. I ate the goat yogurt and it tastes awful even with a ton of cinnomon on it. But I was trying to get some good bacteria slowly back in me. I’ll have to crack open some goat kefir. YukMay 31, 2013 at 7:50 pm #105444
I eat egg whites most the time, but I don’t eat them everyday. Yes, I have to rotate things, too. I like buckwheat, but it is very high fiber. Millet is lower in fiber, so that is why I think a mixture of rice and millet is good. I think sorghum flour is going down okay, too. I like goat yogurt; not the milk. I just don’t have it everyday. I am never going to touch cauliflower again, lol! I’ll just have to watch my starches, and not do huge portions. I think I forget that I have to consider my gastroparesis, too.May 31, 2013 at 8:35 pm #105452
So rotatin is wise? I pretty much know that answer that’s why I added yogurt and almond butter. More variety. I’m gonna try eggs today since I waited a day and see what happens. Just coming up with snack ideas is hard. I have been having some berries or a green apple. Fruit doesn’t bother me. I just wanna know if what we have is cureable and how long it takes for the gut to heal. Buckwheat is delicious. Idk if rice flour feeds the bugs but it seems everything does. I’ll add some of that stuff as the months go by and see how I feel.May 31, 2013 at 9:27 pm #105454
I forgot to mention on the millet; I have been buying hulled millet in bulk at my health store because it is lower in protein and fiber. Here is bob red mills. I still don’t eat it all the time, but I have; mainly bake with millet flour.June 1, 2013 at 6:53 am #105465
Once I go back to flours im gonna grab that. It looks good. And my rice flour. I’m on vacation and I ate about 13 homemade chicken wings. It’s taken 3 hours just to feel like its somewhat digesting. Tom morning for a treat I’m adding cheddar cheese to my omelette. I hope the cheese doesn’t hurt me too much. I know on the gaps and scd they allow cheddar so hopefully I’m ok
