The flare has calmed down and I have a LOT more energy, which is
I have even had a couple times when I could not stop dancing in the kitchen
(yes this is after 9 months of being nearly couch/ house bound)
and there are spontaneous bouts of very light yoga breaking out
I have landed full bore in SIBO distress land
After very mild digestive symptoms all summer and fall I now have problems eating almost anything.
The ND gave me the diet handout about a month ago and I.... spent some time in that wonderful land of DENIAL
Now it's very clear that I have to treat it. Hey, just in time for the holidays!
The biggest barrier is mental of course- it's so exciting to have more energy that I want to think I'm recovered. Instead of provisionally treated. I have to think of this as a grace period that is allowing me the energy to deal with SIBO and NOT "I'm all better now and can go back to so called normal."
So, I am spending hours compiling SIBO recipes and starting to put together shopping/ meal plans for the transition. Anyone want to join in recipe share let me know!
Trying to decide antibiotics vs. herbals for treatment.
The interesting thing is.... as I'm returning to work, all my kindly co workers are interested in hearing about my health update since I've been gone for so many months.
Everyone I've talked to so far has shared their digestive challenges with me. I'm beginning to wonder if SIBO is an undiagnosed/ routine byproduct of Standard American Lifestyle (diet + antibiotics).
And now welcome to SIBO land
