I have! I developed SIBO after having a lot of antibiotics and catching a parasite in South America. I struggled a lot but herbal antibiotics + GAPS nutritional protocol really helped. It took about 6 months and I could eat moderate amounts of fruits or sugars without any bloating! I am still sensitive to some foods, but my tolerance is a lot better, no more bloating, no more pain and normal BMs. :) You can read a bit more about my struggles on adietitiangonepaleo.wordpress.com.

Ten years ago I did a candida cleanse using Yeast Defense every six months for a couple of years. I also cut out all refined sugar. I read Dr. crooks book on it. Felt much better and didn't have anymore yeast infections after that. Reminds me that I should perhaps do it again now.

I don't know that my candida is totally gone. I'm at the point of not caring.
My health problems have caused me so much stress over the last few years, that I honestly think the obsessing made it worse. I was popping so many different anti-fungals/yeast eating enzymes/supplements, and yet was still so stressed over it.
I just finished an 8-week mindfulness meditation course, and now am beginning to understand the Brain-Gut axis, and how a calm mind benefits it.
But to answer your question, my naturopathic doc put me on Biotics Research A.D.P. which is an emulsified oil of oregano and slow-release. I took that for about two months, and then switched to taking probiotics. I'm only considering adding in acupuncture for hormone balancing, and that's it. No more.
I eat fruit if I want, I eat sweet potatoes if I want. I have food intolerances, which meant more restrictions. I'm tired of it all. I avoid what makes me feel the most ill (eggs/dairy/gluten) and try not to obsess anymore. It's tough, but my sanity is worth it!
