I definitely have Bartonella. My DNA Connexions test was positive for that.
Thanks for sharing. I had wondered whether the probiotics I'm taking to resolve this situation might not actually be contributing to it. I think I'll try taking a vacation from them and see what happens.
First off, thanks for replying.
Secondly, I've been in touch with the LLMD. He absolutely will not let me commence antibiotic therapy until my gut is in good functioning order. I told him I couldn't wait that long to treat, so he's going to have me do Banderol, Samento, and Stevia. I plan to ease slooooowly onto those so my body doesn't completely flip out on me.
My doctor (functional medicine MD) will treat people herbally/supplements when they can't tolerate the abx. So, it makes sense to me that is what your doctor recommended.
I do agree that starting abx with a persistent case of diarrhea could be very troublesome/concerning.
