Methane SIBO

1:40 pm, July 10, 2016

Are my symptoms conducive to Methane SIBO? Well, after having a breath test which showed only a slight elevation, I was told no you do not have SIBO, but recently I came across some information that made me think again, that SIBO could be my problem. About three weeks ago, I started a FODMAP diet. I [...]

OD’d On Chocolate

3:50 pm, March 24, 2016

The other day I had a mad craving for chocolate, weird as I don’t really eat the stuff these days. I reckon it was brought upon by a coffee I had the day before, I don’t usually drink that either. It must’ve been a craving for caffeine, it’s the only thing that makes sense. Anyway, [...]

Over Emotional Due To Iodine?

8:58 am, February 3, 2016

I’m not sure whether i’ve always been this way, or whether it’s more recently ive noticed it, but I have emotional swings to the extreme. My mind goes from positive to negative like the electricity supply, with surges and declines in energy along with it. The slightest thing can set my eyes watering, or send [...]

Regression

12:26 pm, January 5, 2016

It’s taken me a while to get motivated enough to write this post. It’s the brain fog and fuzzy thinking – I just don’t seem to be able to think as clearly. I do have days when my mind seems to work fairly normally and this is one of them. It is a struggle to [...]

Candida Flare Up

10:52 am, July 27, 2015

This seems to be a regular occurrence. Just when I think i’m getting better and relax slightly, then bang – another candida flare. It drives you mad. There are three likely culprits for this latest one.   These are my possible instigators Culprit No.1 Potatoes. I had been looking into the possibility that I could [...]

Histamine Reaction

3:40 pm, July 14, 2015

It appears I may be getting more sensitive to selective foods. Tingling mouth and tongue, cracked lips follow when I drink Chamomile tea and Coconut milk. These are two foods I regard as healthy, it’s a shame I get issues, but unfortunately, this is the way it goes. After a bit of research, I have [...]

Liver Cleanse

9:46 am, July 6, 2015

I had been meaning to try out this detox method for months, but for whatever reason I had put it off. Well Last Friday, I did it. The Hulda Clark methods are controversial, but having read the book, ‘The Cure for all Diseases’, I was very intrigued by a lot of what she talks about. [...]

More Tests

6:05 pm, May 5, 2015

In my relentless search to find the root cause of my problems, I have had various tests. There are a myriad of tests available from the NHS, and even more privately. This is a summary of tests I have undertaken in the past 5 months. Stool Analysis I have had a comprehensive stool analysis conducted [...]

Could it be FODMAP ?

3:29 pm, April 17, 2015

From my initial diagnosis of CD, I soon realised that the NHS recommended protocol wasn’t going to cut it, so I searched the net for a more wholesome alternative. It wasn’t long before I found out about Candida overgrowth. This appeared to me to be the root of all my ills. The diet that came [...]

Beware Raisins and Dates

12:26 pm, March 11, 2015

So I got addicted to Dates, which in hindsight was a stupid thing to let happen. I figured they wern’t too bad to eat – better than chocolate, or other processed rubbish. However, eating 200g in one sitting is not a good thing as this has caused a complete relapse in my symptoms. I was [...]
