I am now looking to tweak the diet using anti inflammatory herbs and spices and I'm looking into balancing my hormones levels (have just discovered my DHEA is low). Interestingly, the chronic diarrhoea I suffered for several years before the abx has resolved, though i still take probiotics.
So, all in all a very pleasing response to treatment. Well worth the money and effort.
Thanks for posting. It always feels good to hear from someone making progress. Hope you continue to get better.
Yes, I agree, abx are important but other areas such as diet, immunomodulation etc. can also offer great help.
For what it's worth, there's a couple of herbs that I have found very effective. One is liposomal Curcumin but unfortunately I seem to have an allergy to it so after a while it gives me an itchy rash and can't take anymore. The other one is Resveratrol. I found it very effective as an anti-inflammatory and also at raising my energy levels like no other. It seems to exert antiinflammatory, neuroprotective, antiviral etc. effects http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resveratrol
If you ever find that your improvements kind of plateau on abx, I suggest you look into biofilm-reducing supplements. They are much more widely discussed on other forums. I found they make abx work more effectively. I personally think this is an aspect of chronic infections much overlooked in spite of clear scientific evidence that it plays a major role in helping pathogens hide from both from the immune system and antibiotics.
