RS and Probiotic regimen caused a SIBO relapse and leaky gut!

Hello, now know that I have had lingering symptoms that are most likely SIBO or something related, since going paleo over three years ago. I recently had played with slowly introducing RS and probiotics into my diet as I have been highly intolerant of anything pre/probiotic, when the rest of my family, who are all paleo, can take probiotics like candy. But I didn't seem to adapt, it was more like a dose dependent worsening of symptoms.

And now, since last week, I have been right back into that small intestinal bloating and neuro symptoms: incapacitating fog, depression, anxiety, poor concentration...

I'm wondering if SIBO is the whole reason I went paleo. A GI MD told me before this that I may have SIBO, back before I knew anything about it.

So, I'm now doing the anti biofilm, antimicrobial protocol: I'm taking peppermint oil, monolauren, and NAC for a month, followed by probiotics, glutamine and magnesium. Taking coconut oil and bone broth the whole time.

Does this sound like enough to treat the SIBO?

Does the protocol include any prokinetic ? Such as ginger or some essential oil or ldn ?

Thank you. I have been on Kresser's protocol of a biofilm disruptor, antimicrobial, while using the low FODMAP diet. After a month I will begin with glutamine and magnesium and probiotics.

IMO you need to change the bacterial ratios in your gut, reducing them alltogether is not a good idea, though may offer benefits, rather temporarily.

Natural antibacterials like berberine, garlic oil, clove oil, thyme oil may be better than rifaximin that is not absorbed mainly because they are absorbed and thus don't effect the rest of your gut and are probably safer but for short term improvement rifaximin must be better. You'll almost certainly need to greatly reduce or eliminate fodmaps, for reducing the bacteria.
