I just had an organix test done not to long ago that test for various vitamins, bacteria, yeast in the body through urine sample. It's very expensive but reliable and accurate. Well, I always thought I had yeast, but my markers all came back perfect except for one.... I was 130 times over in clostridial species, which is a intestinal bacterial overgrowth, that is deadly and can release awful toxins. Now, I dont see my doc til this upcoming monday. However, he said, definitely no yeast, which is great, b/c this can mimic the symptoms and I thought thats what I had for the last 2 years. This is similiar it seems, but not certain yet.
My doc has never seen this in a patient and can't believe the numbers. He believes this is the root cause of my Ulcerative colitis/proctitis, skin problems, and various other problems, b/c everything else is perfect. By the way, I have had extensive blood, urine, and stool testing done. This is the only markers to be out of range and especially at those numbers. I do have slightly elevated mercury levels, but not too high.
Well, there was an exact marker that showed up on the test to determine this bacterial overgrowth. I don't have my result papers with me. But its 3,4 dehy.... its very long. I will repost later with the exact name, but it indicates that it in the clostridial family. It's really amazing how they determine this.
Ok, so I looked on the internet and theres not much info on this or treatment. Does anyone have any knowledge on this bacteria and treatment. Has anyone ever had this? My doc said will talk about treatment. He said he's amazed though b/c in his 35 years of practice, he's never seen this in anyone. So, please posts with thoughts and suggestions. I will not take anything until I'm knowledgeable about it. Thank you!
