constipation is normal in degenerative neurological diseases (such as MS, lyme etc...), the vague nerve that makes the colon move, is damaged. this means the peristalsis of the colon (the moves it does involuntary to push food through) are weaker. Thus u get more constipation than a normal person.
because of constipation with untreated lyme, i developed hemorrhoids, i never had any problems with this before lyme
now my constipation has been resolved because of lyme treatment, but my hemorrhoids are here to stay. talking about
100% recovery. ....right...
you should get hi quality probiotics, i take 3 brands per day, so more than 50 billion in total good bacteria from 20 strains... inulin is good for the bacteria in the colon, i never heard it "feeds lyme". Lyme is very hard to be fed, it needs a special diet, very complex, that only can be found in live tissue. The researchers had a hard time culturing this bacteria, they came up with a special medium for growth called BSK.
So rest assured, inulin does not "feed borrelia", it would be a very good thing for the researches if that were true, since compared to BSK, inulin is a very simple polysaccharide (some sort of sugar).
This is a complete list of the contents of BSK medium, which Borrelia likes to grow:
BSK-H medium is a complex medium designed to support the growth of the Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi.
