Rashes have improved significantly, but unable to deliver the final blow to SIBO?

Commented on March 12, 2013

I have been waiting months for test results due to screw-ups by a testing company. In the meantime, I have been assuming I have had SIBO.

This is what has helped:

  • Of course, a "standard-carb diet" (which is essentially Paleo without sugar and some starches)
  • Yeast fighters supplement by TwinLabs
  • Peppermint Oil (negligibly effective)
  • Ginger (STRONGLY EFFECTIVE)

Unfortunately, I have been unable to rid of my rashes completely although these supplements have helped in a major way. And no, I cannot get an target-antibiotic while I wait for what seems like another year for the testing company to give me my results back. With these considerations, does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

How is that possible? Doctors I've been to won't actually diagnose me

One year for SIBO test results done? I got mine done at the doctor's office and saw the results for myself.

I would figure it would not be the same for me, as probiotic foods cannot resolve the issue of excessive bacterial growth within the small intestine. The problem is not of a balance of bacteria but rather an excess in itself.

That was generally a good resource, however probiotic foods generally should be avoid with SIBO unless other disorders are present considering that the problem is not a symbiotic balance of bacteria in the small intestine but rather the presence of excess bacteria within itself.

Rashes are reduced generally when sugary foods are avoided as well as non-standard carbohydrate foods. Additionally, I have had a history of intestinal yeast infections which together allow me to presume that I have had SIBO. I eat lots of fat, so there is no need to worry about that, lol.

Can you consume homemade sauerkraut? Tastes great, and it has had a minor yet noticeable effect on my IBS and psoriasis.

Here is a protocol you may want to check out:

http://www.eat-real-food-paleodietitian.com/paleo-diet-and-SIBO.html

Paying close attention to which carbs are high or low on FODMAPs (you may already know this, but you didn't mention it, so.... )

Also, I find homemade bone broth to be very healing to the gut. I sometimes make a good broth with lots of low FODMAP veggies and eat soup all weekend. It settles my gut down.

I have also found that increasing fat intake seems to help my skin. I did a "fat fast" a few weeks ago (for 3 days) and all my skin issues cleared up while I was on it. Kind of surprised me.

What kind of rashes do you have? Have you eliminated all dairy?
