I'd start by getting a uBiome or American Gut Project test to see what's in your gut flora and then you can plan to crowd out the bad guys by feeding the good guys. Something is very wrong there.  If you have candida overgrowth kill that off... (more)

Trying to go Paleo and grains were pretty much my thing, I need some ideas for new Grab/On the go snack foods. I'm a college studen so the cheaper/easier the bettter. Especially if you can find items at Publix/Target. But Wholeoods is ok too.

If the theory is true that the MB is controlled/cultured by what you consume then I wonder how much of a change can be made as a side benefit of the colonoscopy. IE: Is there some way I can reboot my presently not-so-nice microbiota community?   (more)

Yes, absolutely.  What you eat, or don't does control your microbiota.  You'd probably want a uBiome test, or an American Gut project test to see what you have now, and then use various types of fibers and prebiotics such as inulin, acacia,... (more)

You're not alone! For me it wasn't kombucha, it was chia seed pudding. While my reaction wasn't quite as strong as yours (thankfully), the general outline was the same. FYI: I've learned that I don't tolerate sesame seeds very well either.
