      Thanks Michelle!! I haven't really been a blogger's blogger in that area, if you know what I mean, but I am working on improving. I just like to write, all the SEO stuff is very, very new to me & not my main focus.

    Hi Angie -- Thank you for this fantastic series! Mickey suggested I look you up as I am about to treat my SIBO with herbal antibiotics. I am excited to share your information with the Hashimoto's 411 group - I think you are correct - there are many with SIBO and struggling...I know - I am one of them.

    I am already AIP (almost 2 years - so hopefully this is my last puzzle piece) and low histamines -- I have the hives symptoms - I will plan on layering in low FODMAPs for this treatment.

    My doctor prescribed Berberine (I struggle with high sugars) and emulsified Oil of Oregano tablets. I would love your opinion on the questions I have:

    1. Oil of Oregano -- you said it was rough -- but if I can stick it out will it be worthwhile or potentially more harmful? Is this the "normal" die off or more severe? I think I am probably a combo of the methane and hydrogen -- I don't have obvious digestive symptoms -- just ridiculous bloating.

    2. I need to take a probiotic and I have too much lactate - I found Prescript Assist. Should I continue to research for other probiotics without lactate?

    3. Bone broth -- if I make it in a pressure cooker - for only 1 hour - will that take away the problem of cooking it too long?

    Such great info -- thanks very much!

        Thanks Angie! I think one of my greatest fears is the Oil of Oregano - mine is an emulsified OoO tablet taken 4 times a day. I can't find any information on what I can expect in the way of reaction - and to just chill and get through it.

    Thank you so much for this invaluable resource! I compiled the entire saga into one document to share with my functional medicine doctor. I've been on SCD 2 years, plus AIP for a year and half trying to resolve IBS-C. I've added HCl, enzymes and a host of other gut healing supplements, to no avail. I've treated reactivated EBV, cryptosporidium, yersinia infections and Klebsiella overgrowth biotanically, but probably because there was no follow up with prokinetics or elimination of FODMAPS in combination with the other diets, the SIBO relapsed. I'm so looking forward to tackling it and resolving 30 plus years of poor health and fatigue. Like many in our "community" I am determined to beat compromised health. I so appreciate having this information available on the web, and at no cost.
    With much gratitude, Heather
