SBBO, Small Bowel Bacteria Overgrowth, I was just reading is one thing this OIL OF OREGANO is used to treat.
I'm becoming fascinated by this SBBO...I think I have this quite often. And according to what I'm reading, LOTS of people (not just Crohnies) have this quite often but are diagnosed with IBS instead of SBBO and sent on their way without any antibiotics (or Oil of Oregano!) and constantly have to deal with the IBS symptoms. One site said if doctors would just give these IBS'ers a breath test to test for SBBO, most of these people could feel better within a week's time with some meds. Instead, doctors write it off as IBS because they don't present with any other symptoms.
This same site also suggests that SBBO doesn't just present with diarrhea and abdominal pain...it also presents with non-digestive symptoms like FATIGUE. How many Crohnies complain about
that? How many non-Crohnies do you know who complain about
I'm going to try me some of this Oil of Oregano...interesting thread!
