    Hi Nanonug, thanks for posting. Have you tried any of the various diets? SCD, GAPS, Candida, etc.? If so, did they help? Have you seen the site Heal Thyself? It's got a lot of information, but the post that I am thinking I would try to start doing is called "14 steps for Healthy Guts."

    I have, yes. I am currently loosely doing a low FODMAP diet. In my opinion, these diets have only a marginal effect on symptoms.

    Is that the one that offers a colon cleansing protocol?

    I didn't see that on the site, it's a pretty large site with lots of different info though so it might be on there. It does have some information about methylation and Amy Yasko too which I wouldn't have known about until getting on this site. Sorry to hear the diets haven't helped all that much.

    Here is the information I mentioned earlier called "14 steps for Healthy Guts."

    Most cost effective alternatives are whole food nutrients.

    Nutrient dense foods
    :

    • Green Smoothie every. single. day.2 cups (any frozen fruit plus any dark leafy greens, rotate produce)
    • Homemade Milk Kefir every. single. day. 1 cup (gradually work up) (B vits, enzymes, most probiotics in proper ph)
    • Homemade Bone Broth every. single. day. 1 cup (MANY nutrients needed for detox, plus minerals)
    • Homemade Kombucha every. single. day. 1 cup (start with an ounce, increase by 1 ounce a week.) (displaces and replaces candida albicans in the gut, only if no mercury/amalgam fillings/toxicity issues, nor nursing)
    • Liver one ounce, only three times a week. (B-vits essential for detox)
    • Lentils or Beans, 1 cup per day. (folate, molybdenum)

    • Coconut Oil 1 Tbls every. single. day. (medium chain fatty acids, kills candida in the large intestine)
    • fermented CLO, every. single day. (most expensive item) (vit A, D, K, EFAs)
    • Bubbies sauerkraut 1 Tbls. every. single. day. (or other raw, fermented food) (probiotics)
    • Brazil nuts 1 ONLY, every. single. day. (selenium)
    • Celtic Sea Salt a pinch in every glass of water, broth. (microminerals)
    • Lemon juice , fresh squeezed, 1 tsp. in every glass of water or smoothie. (alkalizing to body ph, paradoxically)
    • Raw local honey, 1 Tbls at bedtime. (helps bifidum bacteria to grow in the gut)
    • Egg yolk , 1 per day. (nutrients help to detox)
    • Nettles infusion, 1 or 2 cups per day. (many vitamins and minerals and phytonutrients)
    • Kelp, 1 teaspoon every day.
    • Epsom salt baths, 1 cup in a tub of water 3x/week for 20 minutes.

    Total cost about $4 per day.
