How to restore healthy gut bacteria?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created April 09, 2013 at 6:53 AM

I no longer have SIBO but I still have some very weird food sensitivities and my gastritis have worsened due to a food slip-up.

I am reacting to all foods except protein - if I eat protein only, I feel totally fine. But I cannot live on protein only for the rest of my life.

I have tried carrots and pumpkins. Yes, I am fine eating those BUT I am already orange from eating so many of them over the last six months, I cannot do it to myself. People ask me what foundation I am using when I am not using any.

I have tried other low FODMAPS vegetables, and they are not as effective as protein (which means I get low energy after eating them).

On top of it all, recently I had a little (ok, a huge) food slip up and had some kimchi (just to discover it had sugar in it) - a mistake I will never repeat for the rest of my life - which aggravated my gastritis. Well, my doctor prescribed PPIs and that's what worsened SIBO in the first place so I refuse to take it!

QUESTIONS:

  1. How do I re-populate good vegetable eating bacteria since I cannot really eat any vegetables, fermented foods and probiotics?

  2. Any natural low FODMAP remedies for gastritis?

  3. Would it help to have some homemade rice porridge or oatmeal? It is against SCD but I have ran out of ideas.

Please advise.

It will be impossible for you to find a doctor to do fecal transplant for SIBO. Trust me- it's too much begging and nobody takes you seriously. I have UC and had C diff and supposedly that's what it's known to help. I must've went to 8 different gastro doctors and NONE of them would do it. I ended up doing it at home.

Salmon is the food highest in D3, if that is helpful. Tanning bed?

I do eat organ meats and seafood, but I get low energy on cheese (although I love it). I am having a hard time with vitamin D supplement - I react to every one of them. I have not tried krill oil yet. I will try to eat potatoes, but spinach is high in beta -carotene, I am afraid to get more orange. Thanks for answering.

It is supposed to be a highly effective treatment, and surely worth a google search in your area. I doubt your GP is going to be well versed in it. http://articles.latimes.com/2013/jan/17/science/la-sci-fecal-transplant-20130117

I would only do it if a REPUTABLE doctor told me I needed it. Thanks though.

Sugar was listed as one of the ingredients. I know kimchi is healthy, I am just not sure it is healthy for me right now when I am experiencing all those digestive issues.

I don't know of any personally. I want to say I've heard of someone getting a referral in upstate New York, but I can't remember the name, and there have got to be more doctors doing this than that one guy. From what I remember at that particular clinic you had to be evaluated for severity of your condition before they'd do it. There are some scary diy recipes for it online, but I'd wanna do really thorough testing of my donor before going that route.

Are you eating organ meats, seafood & cheese? They can really pick up the slack, micronutrient-wise.

Kombucha?

Raw goat milk kefir, if you can tolerate dairy.

I have FODMAPS-intolerance, but I can eat spinach & potatoes with no problem.

Kimchi with sugar in it? Do you mean the nutrition facts, or the ingredient label? If the former, that's not proper traditional kimchi. And if the latter, that's only there for the fermentation, and should be completely gone by the time you eat it.

Also, this is a mistake you'll never make again for the rest of your life? Isn't the point to solve your digestive issues so you can tolerate more kinds of food again? Kimchi is a great traditional food. Extremely healthy if you tolerate it.

How 'bout something like NEAT to clear up food sensitivities: www.naet.com

NAET?? was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of 1983. Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, also known as NAET, are a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.
