My theory that SIBO is the root cause to the beginning of Crohn’s is now really making a lot of sense to me. Let’s go back about 5 years ago:
I was really searching for any possible answer so I went to a urologist to see if perhaps it was a prostate problem. I was not diagnosed with Crohn’s disease yet and a lot of my symptoms could have been prostate related. I was placed on Cipro 1,000mg for one solid month. During this month my Crohn’s symptoms improved greatly as the anti-biotic was killing the overgrowth that I didn’t know I had. It was also killing all good bacteria as well. When the month was over and I stopped the medication, my symptoms returned with force because all good bacteria were destroyed. I went back to this doctor and tried another half month and my symptoms improved again! After stopping this round my symptoms came back and I went to finally see a gastro doc.
I would never in a million years tell you to take an anti-biotic to kill overgrowth because it kills everything and in the end will make the imbalance worse. Yet doctors prescribe this all the time here in America!!
When you eat things like garlic, coconut oil, olive oil and cinnamon you target only the harmful bacteria. When you drink juices made from cabbage, lemon, ginger, bell peppers, carrots, parsley, cilantro, kale and other leafy greens, you kill yeast and harmful bacteria. When you finally add in the supplements from Metagenics, you truly destroy this imbalance and begin to cultivate a healthy environment. The probiotic you take can now do its job!!!!
You have nothing to lose but your doctor and your daily pills if you try some of this out! It is time to do something that has worked for me and countless others. Make it happen!
