Thank you for all of the replies...
Yes, I am taking a very good probiotic AND probiotic yeast as well.
At first, I was convinced that we were jumping the gun by stopping the antibiotics. But my bowel movements were not quite "normal" for a few days BEFORE (not at all like yesterday's, but still, not ideal). I honestly hadn't thought anything of it... it just felt like my body was cleansing, due to the diet changes I'd been making and the fresh detox juice I'd been drinking and all of the baths. But this still concerned her, because her philosophy is that things really need to be clear in order to proceed safely. It could be that I have some sort of stomach virus, or it could be that I'm reacting to one of the other recently added supplements.... but until we cut things out and add things back in, we won't know for sure, and we might be doing more harm than good.
We are assuming at this point that the antibiotics were not the cause of my troubles, even thought they obviously worsened them... but of course, figuring this out requires some trial and error.
Admittedly, patience is not my forte. I'm so sick of being sick. And I hate being in a place of reaching for a "normal" that isn't MY normal, but is just a few steps above where I'm at. Hhhhrumph.
After eating mostly BRAT foods, my tummy troubles seemed better by yesterday evening, although I was up a couple of times over night, and again this morning. My honey made me toast and scrambled eggs and apple sauce for breakfast, and I'm laying low today. In the meantime, I will send my practitioner daily "poop reports"
, and we will take this day by day and re-evaluate when I have "normal" bowel movements again. And I will remind myself, over and over again, that this is progress.... it may feel like otherwise at times, but we are still moving forward, despite a few bumps.
Again, thank you all.... it sure feels good to say all of this somewhere where folks don't think you're completely whacked.
